Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was questioned by police after the body of a 27-year-old Boston man was found Monday afternoon in a North Attleboro business park, according to a report by SI.com. Police spent much of Tuesday night at Hernandez's house, which is within a mile from where the dead body was found.
Hernandez has not been named as a suspect, but The Sun Chronicle of Attleboro reported Tuesday that Hernandez is connected to a rented Chevy Suburban with Rhode Island license plates that was found near the crime scene.
Stacey James, the Patriots' vice president of media relations, released the following statement: "I am aware of the reports, but I do not anticipate that we will be commenting publicly during an ongoing police investigation."
State and local police on Tuesday spent more than two hours searching Hernandez's home. During the search, two men were taken away in separate police cars after attempting to leave, and their vehicle was later searched.
Authorities left the area around 9:45 p.m. without making a statement. They removed a cardboard box, according to reports from the scene. Hernandez was at home, but was not taken into custody.

Mass. State Police searching area near Patriot tight end Hernandez's house

NORTH ATTLEBORO -- A convoy of five Massachusetts State Police vehicles turned off John Dietsch Boulevard Thursday morning into a clearing to apparently resume searching as part of the investigation of a body found Monday.
The police on Tuesday searched the nearby home of New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez as they investigated the death of 27-year-old Odin L. Lloyd of Dorchester, Mass.
Around 9:30 a.m. Thursday, state troopers were seen spraying bug repellent on their uniforms prior to proceeding up the road a quarter mile and down a dirt road behind Corliss Landing. The area, which was apparently cleared for future development, is between John Dietsch Boulevard and Landing Road. On both sides of the road are high berms of dirt and construction debris.
The entrance to Westwood Estates, the development where Hernandez resides, is off Landry Road.

Police: Homicide victim linked to Patriots’ Hernandez

NORTH ATTLEBORO — Police investigators returned on Wednesday for a second day to the home and nearby woods of New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez as they pursued their investigation of a man found dead nearby and linked to the football player.
The Bristol County District Attorney’s office identified the dead man as 27-year-old Odin L. Lloyd of Dorchester, Mass., who played semi-professional football for the Boston Bandits.
In the midst of what North Attleboro police — and now confirmed by the chief medical examiner in Sandwich — say was a homicide, a civil complaint surfaced Wednesday from a Florida court accusing Hernandez of shooting a man in February.
In the complaint, Alexander S. Bradley claims Hernandez negligently shot him in the eye on Feb. 13 after he, Hernandez and two other people had visited a Miami strip club and were in a car heading toward Palm Beach.
The complaint states that “the defendant caused the gun to go off while aiming it at the plaintiff” and that Bradley has had “multiple surgeries” to reconstruct his face and will require “extensive medical care and treatment for the rest of his life.”
Bradley’s lawyer, David Jaroslawicz, said in an interview that the complaint was temporarily withdrawn earlier this week to correct an error in the text but was refiled Wednesday afternoon. The claim seeks damages exceeding $100,000.
