New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez drives from his home late Thursday morning, June 20, 2013, in North Attleboro, Mass. Hernandez had a connection to homicide victim Odin Lloyd, of Boston, whose body was found in an industrial park near the athlete's home.
NORTH ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) — State police officers and dogs are searching the home of New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez during a probe into the killing of a semi-pro football player whose body was found nearby.
Saturday's search of Hernandez's sprawling home in North Attleboro involved several officers accompanied by what appeared to be crime scene experts.
Police have previously searched in and around the home as they try to figure out who killed Odin Lloyd. His body was found a mile from Hernandez's home. His family members said Friday the two men were friends and were together the night he died.
Authorities say Lloyd's death is a homicide. Family members say they want to know what happened the night he died.
A spokeswoman for the Bristol District Attorney's office declined to comment on the investigation Saturday.
