The Aaron Hernandez case continues in Connecticut as state police divers search a pond in the hometown of 23 year-old former athlete.
YouWager experts have learned that the authorities are currently looking for a weapon connected to the murder investigation.
The police did not comment on the nature of this search and they’re referring calls to Massachusetts prosecutors. A message left there seeking comment was not immediately returned.
Nevertheless, a television station in Hartford reported that the search is tied to the weapon that is being sought in the murder investigation.
The former New England Patriots player has pleaded not guilty to murder in the death of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old Boston semi-professional football player whose body was found June 17 about a mile from Hernandez’s home in North Attleborough, Mass.
Thus far, the weapon used in the case has not been found.
Authorities have executed several search warrants in Bristol, at homes linked to Hernandez and his associates Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz, whom authorities say were with the 23 year-old when Lloyd was killed.
