Authorities in Bristol, Connecticut spent the last week searching a pond for the gun they believe was used to kill Odin Lloyd, but their search has come to an end without the evidence they hoped to retrieve.
The pond is near the previously searched Pine Lake and both bodies of water are two miles from the home of the uncle of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, who has been charged with murder. Two other suspects charged in the crime, Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz, stayed at the home and Ortiz was arrested there.
“No evidence was recovered and, at the present time, no more dives are planned,” Lt. Kevin Morrell of the Bristol Police Department said, via UPI.com.
Ortiz told investigators that Hernandez put two guns in a box in his basement after the shooting and court documents allege that Hernandez’s fiancee Shayanna Jenkins was seen on surveillance video leaving the house with a box and placing it in the trunk of her car. She returned less than an hour later without the box, which wasn’t enough time for her to drive to Bristol and back which make is unclear what evidence led authorities to believe that the weapon may have been disposed of in those waters.
