Authorities Mum On Homicide Investigation Surrounding Aaron Hernandez
NORTH ATTLEBOROUGH, Mass. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Authorities continue to investigate, but not talk about, the killing of a semi-pro football player whose body was found a mile from New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.
A spokeswoman for the Bristol County district attorney’s office said Sunday that officials are not releasing details. Spokeswoman Yasmina Serdarevic says officials also are not talking about the cause of death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, whose body was found on Monday. His death was ruled a homicide.
Hernandez has been questioned and his home has been searched as part of the police investigation into the Dorchester man’s death.
State police officers and dogs searched Hernandez’s North Attleboro home for more than three hours on Saturday and involved several officers, including one with a crowbar, and locksmiths.
Detectives and uniformed officers who searched the home, its backyard and playhouse did not comment to reporters on what they were looking for or what caused them to return to the house located not far from where the Patriots practice.
On Friday, Attleboro District Court clerk magistrate Mark E. Sturdy said three search warrants had been issued in the investigation earlier in the week but have not been returned, meaning they’re not public. He said no arrest warrants had been filed in state courts by the time court closed at 4:30 p.m. Friday. Courts were closed Saturday.
