Investigators say Aaron Hernandez 'not in the clear'

(Continued)

BOSTON —

"He (Hernandez) has not been ruled out," ABC quoted a police official, "We are not calling him a suspect, but he is definitely not in the clear."

Three Enterprise rental cars registered to Hernandez were included in the investigation, including the one found within a block of Lloyd's body.

Police said a vehicle that had its silver mirror cover missing was dropped off at an Enterprise location sometime Tuesday and investigators were trying to locate the cover. The third rental, a black SUV, was parked at Hernandez'  home.

Investigators were also looking into a personal-injury lawsuit filed a week ago, then withdrawn and refiled on Wednesday against Hernandez by Alexander Bradley, 30, of Connecticut.

The federal lawsuit claimed the all-pro tight end shot Bradley in the face, causing the loss of sight in his right eye, last February after they argued upon leaving a Miami strip club. It asked for at least $100,000 in damages.

Bradley's suit claimed he would "require extensive medical care and treatment for the rest of his life."

Hernandez is a native of Bristol, Conn. He was an All-American tight end for University of Florida before being drafted by the Patriots in the fourth round of the National Football League's 2010 draft. He signed a reported  five-year, $40 million contract with New England a year ago.

  • Sunburn isn't the only sign of summer that can leave you itchy and blistered

    You've got a rash. You quickly rule out the usual suspects: You haven't been gardening or hiking or even picnicking, so it's probably not a plant irritant such as poison ivy or wild parsnip; likewise, it's probably not chiggers or ticks carrying Lyme disease; and you haven't been swimming in a pond, which can harbor the parasite that causes swimmer's itch.

    Two decades after NASCAR started running at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the crowds have thinned considerably. It's probably no reflection on the sport's massive following, which stretches from coast to coast, but it surely doesn't NASCAR's image help when the cameras pan across all of those empty seats.
