NORTH ATTLEBORO, Mass. — State police officers and dogs are searching the home of New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez as they investigate the killing of a semi-pro football player whose body was found nearby.

Saturday’s search of Hernandez’s sprawling home in North Attleboro involved several officers, including one with a crowbar, and locksmiths.

Police have previously searched in and around the home as they try to figure out who killed Odin Lloyd, whose body was found about a mile from Hernandez’s home.

Lloyd’s family said the two men were friends and together the night he died. Authorities have ruled Lloyd’s death a homicide.

A spokeswoman for the Bristol District Attorney’s office declined to comment on the investigation Saturday.

An attorney for Hernandez has said he would not comment on the searches.
