Things have been fluid in the investigation of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez and his involvement in a murder over the past few weeks, but police may have finally made a breakthrough.
According to the Associated Press, police may have found serious evidence in a secret apartment in Massachusetts owned by Hernandez:
They then searched the $1,200-a-month apartment in Franklin on June 26, according to search warrant records at Wrentham District Court. Among the findings were a white hooded sweatshirt and a cranberry-colored cap in a bedroom, the documents said.
Surveillance video showed Hernandez wearing a similar sweatshirt the night Lloyd was killed on June 17, the records say.
The search also turned up several boxes of ammunition, including .22-, .45- and 7.62-caliber ammunition.
The police are continuing to build a case against Hernandez, although his representatives say the evidence obtained is only circumstantial. Police learned of the flop house from one of his associates.
Hernandez is also linked to a double-murder that occurred in Boston back in 2012. He’s also being probed as an individual involved in a 2007 shooting in Florida—Hernandez would have only been 17 at the time.
Stay tuned as we’ll have the latest on all things Hernandez.
