Multiple reports out of Boston say Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez will be charged with obstruction of justice in connection with the death of Odin Lloyd.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030, citing an unnamed law enforcement source, reports that an arrest warrant has been issued on a charge of obstruction of justice. The report added that additional charges against Hernandez are possible.

ABC News also cites an unnamed law enforcement source as saying a warrant has been issued for Hernandez.

However other news outlets, including the Boston Globe, are reporting no arrest warrant has been issued.

The body of Odin Lloyd was found near Hernandez's home in North Attleboro, Mass. on Monday night. Police met with Hernandez at his home on Tuesday and Wednesday.

FOX-25 in Boston cited a law enforcement source as saying that Hernandez and Lloyd were with two other men at a bar in Boston on the night of the homicide and left together in a vehicle driven by Hernandez. The report said it is still unclear as to what happened afterward.

Sports Illustrated first broke the story on Tuesday, saying Hernandez was questioned by Massachusetts state police in its investigation. According to, police have connected a 2013 Chevrolet Suburban rented in Hernandez's name with the homicide of Lloyd.

Hernandez has spent three seasons with the Patriots. He set career highs of 79 catches, 910 receiving yards and seven touchdowns during his Pro Bowl season of 2011, then played in just 10 games due to injuries last year and finished with 51 receptions for 483 yards with five touchdowns.
