New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez had his home searched by police officers and dogs for more than 3 hours on Saturday in connection with the ongoing investigation into the death of a semi-pro football player who was found shot to death a mile away.
Police showed up to Hernandez’s North Attleborough, Mass., home a little bit before 2 p.m. ET, and brought two police dogs, paperwork and what looked like crime analysis equipment. The authorities were then seen leaving the house at 5:45 p.m. ET, carrying out approximately 15 bags of apparent evidence. The cops at the scene searched the entire home, playhouse, and it’s backyard but did not tell reporters what exactly they were looking for.
A spokeswoman for the Bristol District Attorney’s office declined to comment on the investigation Saturday. A state police spokesman referred questions to the district attorney’s office. Hernandez’s attorney also said he would not comment on the searches conducted at the house.
