USA TODAY Sports

The Patriots tight end hasn't been arrested, but the possibility still looms.

Massachusetts authorities are still investigating Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez for his role in the suspected murder of Odin Lloyd. Hernandez had his home searched and items confiscated since the investigation began on Tuesday. However, no arrests have been made in the case, and there are conflicting reports as to whether an arrest warrant has been issued.

Here is a timeline for everything that has transpired so far:

Tuesday, June 18: Investigators search Hernandez's home for the first time, and he is questioned by authorities. Officers leave his home with a large box.

Wednesday, June 19: Police returned to the home to conduct a search of a rental car registered to Hernandez. Alexander Bradley re-files a lawsuit against Hernandez alleging that the Patriots tight end shot him in the face, causing him to lose an eye, outside of a Miami nightclub in Feb. 2013.

Thursday, June 20: Police return to Hernandez's home to execute a pair of search warrants based on information that his home security system, including video surveillance, had been destroyed. His attorneys also turned over his smashed cell phone to authorities. It is revealed in same reports that Hernandez hired a service to clean his house on Monday. Reports also emerge that Hernandez and Lloyd were believed to be together the night of the alleged homicide.

Friday, June 21: CytoSport drops Hernandez from an endorsement deal for its products, including "Muscle Milk." Conflicting reports emerge about whether or not an arrest warrant for Hernandez has been issued. The Attleboro District Court told ABC News that a warrant for Hernandez's arrest on obstruction of justice charges had been prepared but not issued. Hernandez returned to his home Friday afternoon with his attorneys.
