NORTH ATTLEBORO, Mass. — Three State Police officers wore black rubber suits and carried metal detectors as they crawled through a thicket of bushes and waded through a small stream lining a street next to Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez‘s house Monday.
One of the officers said they were searching for “evidence” as authorities continue to investigate the homicide of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, whose body was found less than a mile from Hernandez’s elegant house in the quiet suburban community.
Hernandez was allegedly driving a vehicle in which Lloyd was a passenger in during the night of his murder. Lloyd’s body was found less than a mile away from Hernandez’s house.
Neighbors went about their workweek as television satellite trucks continued to choke the street outside Hernandez’s house. Police last searched his house on Saturday, poring through his living space as well as two vehicles in his driveway for more than three hours.
No arrest warrants have been issued in the case. Police believe Lloyd was murdered in the early hours of June 17.
