News helicopters circled above a Massachusetts neighborhood Thursday afternoon after New England tight end Aaron Hernandez, whose home was searched by the police this week after the death of an acquaintance, drove his white SUV from his home in North Attleborough.
It evoked comparisons to O.J. Simpson in 1994.
The scrutiny of Hernandez began shortly after the body of Odin Lloyd, 27, was discovered Monday in an industrial park near his home. The police ruled the shooting death a homicide.
Sources told ABC News the home security system at Hernandez's home and his cellphone were destroyed. Police were at Hernandez's home again Thursday with another search warrant based on evidence Hernandez "destroyed his home security system," an investigator close to the case told ABC. Police also want to know why a team of cleaners were hired Monday to scrub Hernandez's home, sources told ABC News.
A spokeswoman for the Bristol County District Attorney's Office said Thursday that no arrests had been made.
According to police, Lloyd was dating the sister of the mother of Hernandez's daughter. Lloyd's body was discovered near a vehicle that had been rented by Hernandez.
Also, the Connecticut man who claims Hernandez shot him after visiting a Miami nightclub in February was convicted of selling narcotics in 2006, according to state records. Alexander Bradley is suing the tight end for more than $100,000 in damages.

The Clippers are trying to make tweaks to the deal, according to NBA executives.
