Police search Pine Lake in Hernandez's hometown

BRISTOL, Conn. — Connecticut and Massachusetts authorities on Monday searched in and around a lake in the hometown of Aaron Hernandez, the former New England Patriots player who is charged with murder.


Hernandez 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. Authorities believe Lloyd was killed with a .45-caliber Glock, which hasn’t been recovered.

Police divers were in Pine Lake on Monday and other officers could be seen combing the water’s edge.
