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Investigators were also looking into a personal injury lawsuit filed a week ago, then withdrawn and refiled on Wednesday against Hernandez by Alexander Bradley, 30, of Connecticut.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