A home in Bristol, Connecticut, owned by the uncle of Aaron Hernandez has been searched as the investigation continues into the death of Odin Lloyd, whom Hernandez is accused of murdering.
WFSB-TV reports that investigators from both Connecticut and Massachusetts searched the home owned by Hernandez’s uncle, Andres Valderrama.
Investigators spent about two hours going through the home and garage before leaving. A statement from local authorities confirmed they are assisting in the investigation into the death of Lloyd, but offered no other details.
“Both the Bristol Police Department and the New Britain State’s Attorney’s Office will continue to provide whatever assistance we can in connection with this investigation. As the investigation is ongoing, we can have no further comment at this time,” the statement said.
Hernandez, who was born and raised in Bristol, Connecticut, is currently being held at the Bristol County Jail in Massachusetts.
