of boston, according to bob ward, the investigative reporter for fox station in boston, there is surveillance video of nfl tar aaron hernandez from the very night one of his friends died shot in the head. police say hernandez is directly linked to the crime. let's bring in the investigative reporter bob ward live outside of the nfl star's house near boston. bob, somebody destroyed the surveillance system? >> yeah, we understand that when the police came to aaron hernandez's home they noticed that the hard drive was heavily damaged that connects to the home surveillance system. there is home surveillance video of aaron hernandez walking into his home with two men wears hooded sweatshirts a short time after people in massachusetts reported to hearing gunshots.
this is put together. the gunshots were not reported at the time. police are going back together and put together the time line, did that surveillance come from his home or a neighbor's home? we are trying to get to the bottom of that, shep. >> from your reporting, it is your understanding that aaron hernandez and a dead football player and two others went out to a bar that night right? >> 2:30 on the morning on monday, aaron hernandez was in dorchester, a neighborhood of boston and he picked up the victim here. then everything else happens within an hour, so dorchester is roughly an hour or 45 minutes away. gunshots heard 45 minutes after that, and then he is seen, caught on surveillance just a short time, 15 or 20 minutes later coming back to his home in
north a d elboro. >> the vehicle is tied to the crime scene; is that right? >> that's where it gets dicey, shep. there are a couple of vehicles that were rentals here and we are trying to sort that all out. one of the pieces here. one of the vehicles that he was renting was found near the body of the man who was shot. it was found a mile away from here. we don't know if he was dumped there or killed somewhere else. but the car was found in the vicinity, that's what we understand. >> we saw the video of aaron hernandez in the gas station and i saw your helicopter following him around. he didn't talk to police and he didn't talk to the reporters. he is no longer cooperating with the authorities? >> we don't know. and we don't know if he is cooperated at all, or in any depth at all. i am hearing that he hasn't.
we are not there nothing meaningful, that's what i was told. he left his home, and went to the gilette stadium and then he left and you can see the helicopter shots and one of our reporters approached him in a gas station and he wouldn't talk to us. he went to boston and he we believe went to meet with his attorney. >> went to gillette stadium. there is no training camp or sound no one was there. it was like a see you later gillette stadium. >> or maybe he was going to grab something from the looker or talk to someone who was not there. we have to think that aaron hernandez will have to speak to the patriots and he's talking to his lawyer and they have to work to talk to the massachusetts
state police. pinpointing what you were doing and we know you were here in the middle of the night after people heard gunshots. but they have to get his store tore down. >> from authorities, they are not using the word "suspect" but they are not ruling him out, it is my understanding? >> that's right. we know we have surveillance video and they can pinpoint where he is. what ever he's going to tell him, he was here in a certain time and it was after people in north a d eleboro, heard the shot. they don't call them suspect. but the da, he plays his cards close to the vest. but just say it is under investigation and on the record, they will not tell us anything about aaron hernandez. but off of the record, we are gleaning he is a focal point. nbob ward investigative reporter
from station 25 and leading that coverage. bob, we are thankful for you. attorney general eric holder is responding to questions from house republicans about prosecuting journalist as part of leak investigation. the attorney general is standing by the comment he made under oath last month here on capitol hill. >> with regard to the prosecution of the press with disclosure material, that is not something i have been involved and heard of or think would be a wise policy. my view is quite the opposite. >> oh, well, you did confirm that you approved a search warrant question that recoveried to james rosen as a possible co-conspirator in a leak investigation. doug? >> that's right, shep. in the letter to the house judiary approved the subpeona in may 28th 2010.
he defended it saying it was necessary and appropriate and obtaining relevant evident from the member of the news media is not equivalent to prosecution of the news media. but the chairman told fox news that the holder letter raises questions about why doj named rosen a coconspirator. we just played it. it is dishonest at worse and evasive at best. >> he's never heard of that and unwise. we find out he's been exactly involved in that and he said well, we didn't intend to prosecute, it raises a question. is the justice department giving false information to court or congress or both. it is a serious matter and needs to be resolved. >> he shared the department of justice subpeona with a number of prosecutors to get the input and the names of rosen.
some were appalled at the language used justify getting a search warrant. doug, thank you. something may have gone wrong in the background check of ed nowden when they asked for security clearance. watch dogs told law makers on capitol hill today. >> are there any concerns about the carrying out? >> we believe there may be problems. snodenies was not the only case to raise red flags. investigators are looking into the private company that conducted the background check committed any crimes. remember ed snowden was not the only person to get his hand otz top secretidate a. far from it. 1 million contractors, not
people who work for the government but the contractors and three and half million government employees hold security clearances to access that information. katherine, false reports on the background checks are not unusual? >> lack of money and manpower and millions of clearance. most background investigations are incomplete. >> we could have 86 percent of the investigations incomplete and then security clearance is granted. it is probably what is happening, right? one of snowden's former colleagues said the 29 year old left the cia under a cloud after inappropriate use of the agency's computer. he resigned and later took the job with the nsa. asked about the departure, the cia passed on commenting, shep. >> it all came out in the
guardian newspaper in the united kingdom. how the agency tries to limit data collection on the u.s. citizens and what circumstances data can be kept, investigators must make the case of evidence of a crime, coded xhungdz or information linked to a serious threat to people or property and while not commenting tonight on the documents or substance. the response. specifically tailored and rules in place to address the collection, handling and use and destruction of such information consistent with the fourth amendment. and the nfa director promised the list of plots disrupted by nsa programs on wednesday, congressional sources told fox nothing was handed over.

the death.. the retrial will be the prosecution's last shot to put jodi arias to death. >> greg? >> we got a glimpse of jodi arias in a month. this time wearing a prison jumpsuit and shackled and surrounded by the guards. the judge delayed the.trial. we'll have to wait to learn the new trial date. defense wants to postpone it until january. prosecutors want to begin in july. the murder conviction stands and the new jury will decide life or death. because of the high profile nature of the case, it could take time to seat a new jury. >> a juror, doesn't have to have no knowledge about the case. the jushrorors have to be fair d
impartial. since they would not have heard the evident in the guilt phase, the retrial will include that and a fairly long trial and something that the prosecutors could avoid if they decide not to seek death. then there could be life without parole or life with a possibility of release in 25 years. if the trial does happen, taxpayers will continue to foot the bill for her attorneys. so far costing taxpayers 1.7 million. here is a preview. >> let me see those big broad shoulders. yeah. that's it. you look good, travis.
