Police searched a pond near the home of Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. According to Kevin Manahan of USA Today, they found nothing.
“[N]o evidence,” an unnamed officer told Manahan after the search, which lasted roughly an hour.
What were they looking for? “Evidence,” the officer said. (The guy must be related to Gregg Popovich.)
Police also searched a nearby wooded area with metal detectors. The presence of metal detectors makes clear that they were looking for the gun that was used to kill 27-year-old Odin Lloyd.
It remains unclear whether the police were simply being thorough or whether they had reason to believe the gun was in the pond or somewhere close by.
