The situation has gone from bad to worse in a hurry for New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.

Aaron HernandezICONThe New England tight end currently finds himself at the center of a murder investigation.

Steve Silva of Boston.com reported via Twitter on Wednesday evening that he’s heard from a law enforcement source that Hernandez will be arrested in connection with Odin Lloyd’s murder.

Silva’s report is the latest development in a case that continues to put the former Florida Gator near the center of a now high-profile homicide investigation. FOX 25 reported on Wednesday that Hernandez and two other men were in a car with the victim on the night of the murder, with only the tight end and the other two men returning to Hernandez’s home later in the evening.

Lloyd’s body was found Monday at an industrial park located less than a mile from Hernandez’s house.

Stay tuned.
