Report: Police Search Home of Aaron Hernandez Friday Morning


Boston police conducted a search of the home of ex-Patriots and former Florida Gators tight end Aaron Hernandez Friday morning for possible clues in an unsolved double homicide that took place in July 2012.

According to CBS News and Boston’s CBS affiliate, WBZ-TV, police began searching Hernandez’ home in North Attleborough, Massachusetts at approximately 4 a.m. Friday and were inside for about an hour. It does not appear they left with anything.

On July 16, 2012 two men, Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu, were fatally shot at a traffic light while leaving a night club. A third person was wounded.

On Wednesday, Hernandez was taken into police custody and charged with the murder of 27-year-old semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd.

Yesterday Hernandez appeared in court for a bail review hearing. One of his attorneys, Jamie Sultan, argued that Hernandez is not a flight risk, has no criminal history, and lives with his fiancé and eight-month-old daughter. He was again denied bail.

Judge Renee Dupuis told Sultan she was not comfortable releasing Hernandez to house arrest or with bracelet after evidence surfaced that Hernandez text messaged two unnamed friends to hurry to Massachusetts from Connecticut a day before Lloyd’s murder.

Investigators believe Lloyd had knowledge of the two killings, providing a possible motive for Hernandez to commit the crime.
