HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Police are again searching the area near the home of New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, a week after a semi-pro athlete’s body was found approximately a mile away. On Saturday, officials searched Hernandez’ home marking the second search of the athlete’s residence.
According to reports, authorities searched a pond near Hernandez on Monday as their investigation of the killing of an acquaintance entered into its second week.
While other media outlets reported that officials are preparing to execute an arrest warrant at some point for Hernandez for obstruction of justice, state police officers and dogs searched Hernandez’ home for more than three hours on Saturday.
Several law enforcement officials were seen in wetsuits Monday while searching the pond located near both Hernandez’s home and the industrial park where 27-yar-old Odin Lloyd’s body was found. Lloyd was a semi-pro football player for the Boston Bandits who was found dead on June 17.
According to family members, Lloyd was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee. They further told authorities that Lloyd and Hernandez were friends and were out together on the last night of Lloyd’s life. Click here to read more.
