NORTH ATTLEBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Authorities have returned to the home of ex-New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez seeking sneakers they believe were worn on the night of a 2013 killing he’s charged in.
The Sun Chronicle reports state and local authorities went to Hernandez’s North Attleborough home this week but seized no evidence.
The paper, citing court records, reports authorities wanted the Nikes to compare with sneaker prints at the industrial park where the bullet-riddled body of Odin Lloyd was found in June 2013. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder in Lloyd’s killing.
The records say investigators preparing for trial recently noticed three pairs of men’s shoes in video taken inside Hernandez’s home. Police say Hernandez and two co-defendants were seen in home surveillance video wearing the sneakers.
