Search continues at Bristol pond

350x-2 AP

Several of you have asked whether divers searching a pond in Bristol, Connecticut for the gun used to kill Odin Lloyd found anything.

The fact that they’re back for a second day suggests they haven’t.  Unless they liked it and decided to return for a swim.

According to David Owens and Jenny Wilson of the Hartford Courant, the search resumed Tuesday morning of the “murky, algae-topped pond” located in Pine Lake Park.  Police spent seven hours Monday searching the body of water.

Per the report, investigators have information suggestion the .45 caliber Glock pistol could be at the bottom.

Pine Lake a/k/a Malone’s Pond is nearly a mile across.  Monday’s search, according to the Courant, covered an area no bigger than a football field.

It’s a short distance from the home of Aaron Hernandez’s uncle, which would make it an obvious place for the hiding of the gun used allegedly to kill Odin Lloyd a short distance from Hernandez’s home in Massachusetts.

    But they found a lot of golf balls!!

    If the Patriots taught Herdandez anything, it was how to destroy evidence. They won’t find anything.

    This pond is one mile across? I’m no ecologist, but that’s a lake, baby.

  4. shackdelrio says: Jul 30, 2013 11:29 AM

    When they search that pond in Bristol, they may also find the SportsCenter segments that used to be dedicated to the NHL.

    A body of water nearly 1 mile across is too damn big to be called a pond.

  6. hrmlss says: Jul 30, 2013 11:31 AM

    “They liked it and returned for a swim” Awesome!

  7. bucrightoff says: Jul 30, 2013 11:32 AM

    It’s somewhere alone I95 between Boston and South Florida. Good luck with that.

  8. natelan69 says: Jul 30, 2013 11:33 AM

    Ban all guns.

  9. blowpackblow says: Jul 30, 2013 11:33 AM

    They have a better chance of finding more people Hernandez killed than finding the gun.

  10. mvp43 says: Jul 30, 2013 11:35 AM

    It could weeks to fully search a body of water that big, especially for a item that small. I’m sure they’re using an assortment of detecting devices, but even with that it will take time. The percentages say that if someone is in a hurry to get rid of a handgun, they will take the path of least resistance and throw it in at the first opportunity they have. I’m sure they’re only looking at certain access points at the moment.

  11. myspaceyourface says: Jul 30, 2013 11:36 AM

    Drain the pond.

    Use a metal detector.

  12. steelbloggin says: Jul 30, 2013 11:38 AM

    Time to bring in the blood hounds to see if they can get a scent of him in the vicinity of the pond. Those dogs may still be able to pick up a trace to give them a better location to focus the search area

  13. tombradyswig says: Jul 30, 2013 11:38 AM

    Fry him!!!!

  14. scoops1 says: Jul 30, 2013 11:40 AM

    did they find Jimmy Hoffa???

  15. bennyb82 says: Jul 30, 2013 11:43 AM

    Hopefully they check his top dresser drawer first…

  16. ampats says: Jul 30, 2013 11:44 AM

    Unless they took a rowboat out to dump the gun, how far do you think Ortiz or Wallace could throw the gun into the pond? 10 yards ?

  17. kraigk1 says: Jul 30, 2013 11:44 AM

    And here I thought “Bristol Pond” referred to ESPN’s incestuous dating pool.

  18. ishallcomment says: Jul 30, 2013 11:45 AM

    Can they check for Jimmy Hoffa while they are down there?

  19. 737driver69 says: Jul 30, 2013 11:45 AM

    Live from the wire…”According to the FOX fake news network, the gun was seen in the hands of Mr. Kraft, and is being transferred to Prime Minister Putin, in Kremlin”

  20. whiningpatriotfans says: Jul 30, 2013 11:46 AM

    Don’t let Goodell get his hands on the murder weapon, it’s likely to disappear and be destroyed to protect the patriots.

  21. whatnojets says: Jul 30, 2013 11:46 AM

    Simple…….Rent a giant Magnet that can pull anything made out of metal out of that pond!

  22. blacknole08 says: Jul 30, 2013 11:50 AM

    I wouldnt be surprised if his gun was hidden in the box it came in.

  23. raybguilty says: Jul 30, 2013 11:53 AM

    Perhaps if the water was used to waterboard
    AH, they would find the gun more quickly.

  24. wwwmattcom says: Jul 30, 2013 11:55 AM

    Some glocks are made of a non metal material. Any metal might be thebsize if a fishing lure.

  25. thermanmerman99 says: Jul 30, 2013 11:56 AM

    how will hernandez be able to wax his arms to show off his lame tattoos now that he is in jail? is he having to use a prison issued razor to shave his arms now too? bet that means more to him than anything else

  26. hrmlss says: Jul 30, 2013 11:56 AM

    Anyone else think there are some other criminals in the area nervous about other guns, knives, machetes, ice picks, or bodies in cement shoes showing up?

  27. 4gone says: Jul 30, 2013 11:56 AM

    Is it just me or does every article relating to this ongoing story reference Hernandez’s Uncle???? If this cat is not somehow involved (in at least the coverup) I would be shocked.

  28. DonRSD says: Jul 30, 2013 11:57 AM

    Hernandez will walk

  29. itstulwutup says: Jul 30, 2013 12:00 PM

    Yea, they are never gonna find this gun… **shruggs**

    So football is next week….

  30. qwerty007qwerty007 says: Jul 30, 2013 12:03 PM

    ————————————————

    Perhaps they brought in Jamarcus Russell to ditch it a little further out. 60 yards from his knees, is what they say. Problem is – at a mile across the target area might not be large enough.

    Since I am innocent of this crime, sir, I find it decidedly *inconvenient* that the gun was never found.

    Andy Dufresne lost his gun in New England as well. Something about those New England waters

  34. brettfavresmidget says: Jul 30, 2013 12:07 PM

    Is it true that every time you jump in that pond/lake it makes a distinctive, high-pitched “whoop?”

  35. chicagobtech says: Jul 30, 2013 12:10 PM

    “Some glocks are made of a non metal material. Any metal might be thebsize if a fishing lure.”

    The barrel is still metal, so that would make for a pretty big fishing lure.

    ‘The pond is 1 mile across”……..that’s like a lake and as small a state as Connecticut is that would be considered a Great Lake…..thats Erie

  39. gloomysmitty says: Jul 30, 2013 12:18 PM

    This funny

  40. raidadon says: Jul 30, 2013 12:26 PM

    While ya searchin that Bristol pond, look around fer unbiased reporting, cause it been M.I.A. fer a long time!

  41. keylimelight says: Jul 30, 2013 12:28 PM

    If they’re searching the pond, it means they’ve been given evidence that the gun was thrown there. The same source would’ve indicated an approximate location as to the toss so perhaps the search isn’t as futile as a one mile/football field per day suggests.

  42. chiadam says: Jul 30, 2013 12:30 PM

    Release Aaron to go get his gun and bring it back. Just make him promise not to escape or anything.

  43. officialgame says: Jul 30, 2013 12:32 PM

    This gives new meaning to the term pond scum.

  44. whatnojets says: Jul 30, 2013 12:34 PM

    Good news!!!……they found Aaron Hernandez keys to the front door of Gillette Stadium!

    What a relief!!!!

  45. poridge1214 says: Jul 30, 2013 12:36 PM

    The size of the pond/lake doesn’t make the search any more daunting. You start from the shoreline and search approximately the distance someone could toss a gun. Unless you’re uncle Rico, you’re not tossing it a mile over them mountains…..so the search area of approximately a football field is about right.

  46. boobsmcgoo says: Jul 30, 2013 12:39 PM

    I heard they caught 2 catfish and a sac a lait! Mmmm, cook some rice!

    For all you quasi ecologists, a pond is stagnant, a lake is not. size is irrelevant

  49. touchdownroddywhite says: Jul 30, 2013 12:58 PM

    Hernandez seems to be inching toward the territory of “not so dumb”. Something tells me when he walks on murder 1, he’ll look way smarter than most people have given him credit for based on current findings.

    No murder weapon (yet), “talking to someone” as a motive, and the star witness is a drug dealer POS.

    They better find that gun.

  52. beefturkey says: Jul 30, 2013 1:28 PM

    “No gun so far, Sarge. But we did find Sean Salisbury’s career, John Clayton’s ponytail, and some old copies of Skip Bayless’ resume.”

  53. doggeatdogg says: Jul 30, 2013 1:34 PM

    The star witness is trash, but trash witnessed the murder with his own eyes. He is fried. Just try some water boarding with sodium pentathol, will go a long ways, go straight to trial.

  54. war27 says: Jul 30, 2013 1:36 PM

    I lived a few miles from where they are searching 10 years ago.

    I know everything these guys did was dumb but you wouldn’t throw the gun in the pond in that area.

    If you entered through Emmitt Street there are soccer fields and hiking trails. From there you can get to more remote parts of the pond if you were going to dump something.

    There is also high rope courses in the woods in that area with massive amounts of pine needles on the ground. If you ever wanted to hide something it seems it would be a great place to dig and cover back up.

    This whole area is within a mile or two of ESPN headquarters, they may want to check the back of the parking lot there also. :)

    “Per the report investigators have information suggesting the .45 caliber Glock pistol could be at the bottom”. As opposed to what, floating?

  56. chiadam says: Jul 30, 2013 1:43 PM

    #Exonerated.

    - Aaron Rodgers

  57. jusford says: Jul 30, 2013 1:58 PM

    Logic tells me he can’t throw a gun over a 80 yards, otherwise he would’ve been Brady’s backup.

  58. gloomysmitty says: Jul 30, 2013 1:59 PM

    I thought the only rat they had was sleep when all this was going on lol let me guess the guy told where the put the gun lol I hope they kill that rat in jail

    Size always matters. At least that is what I have been told. But then again, I don’t think she was talking about a lake.

  60. dallashomer says: Jul 30, 2013 2:10 PM

    My theory: Ryan Braun found the gun, mistook it for steroids and injected it into his body. Just a hunch.

  61. Advanced Strength Training Programs says: Jul 30, 2013 2:24 PM

    I guess today is not “compassion day” on this blog

  62. jaypace says: Jul 30, 2013 2:46 PM

    Yeah just call Acme like Wile E. Coyote used to, get one of those giant magnets that he used to use to try to get the road runner and boom you got your gun. I mean everything always worked out for him, right?

  63. ridingwithnohandlebars says: Jul 30, 2013 2:57 PM

    At this point I would not be surprised if they ended up finding Jimmy Hoffman’s body.

    “Per the report, investigators have information suggestion the .45 caliber Glock pistol could be at the bottom.”

    Well, I wouldn’t think it would be floating at the top

    By the way guys, the terms Pond and Lake have more to do with bottom content than size.

  68. crystalinadumass says: Jul 31, 2013 8:04 AM

    I bet Skip Bayless knows where the gun is. That chump knows errrrthang.
