It was another day that brought another swarm of law enforcement officials in the swanky North Attleborough neighborhood at the home of Aaron Hernandez.

K-9 units joined state police investigators who combed through the Patriot star's home and his white SUV in the driveway. Officials spent most of the afternoon on Saturday in North Attleborough around his property and were seen gathering several articles of evidence.

This search is the latest in the investigation that has shined a spotlight on the usually peaceful North Attleborough neighborhood where satellite trucks and police cruisers are now part of the everyday landscape.

NBC 10 spoke with one of Hernandez's neighbors, Chris Winn who described how witnessing the maelstrom that has been present around Hernandez has been for those who live near the troubled Patriots star. "It's a little crazy. I just got a phone call from my dad. He said 'you might want to stop by Hernandez' house on the way.' I live right down the road. We have season's tickets so we're kind of thinking about it on both aspects."

Residents and visitors of the area are trying to take in the seemingly countless reports about the goings on in this investigation and although it may be tough to do, they are hoping for the best.

Visitor's like Robin Hood of Plainville, MA remained optimistic about the athlete's involvement in the crime. "You're innocent until proven guilty, so we have to give people that benefit and justice will prevail," said Hood.

There is still no official word on what was in the bags that investigators were seen taking out of the home, but for the residents of this normally quiet neighborhood they represent a hope that their town will soon be on its way out of the spotlight.


Police swarm Hernandez home as investigation continues

By NBC 10 News - Updated Saturday 7:07pm

Police from state and local agencies were back at the North Attleborough home of Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez on Saturday afternoon conducting a search of the estate as part of an ongoing investigation into a body that was discovered about a mile from the property. 

NBC 10 was on scene as officers, including K-9 units, investigators, and locksmith descended upon the sprawling mansion to search for evidence related to the investigation into the homicide of Odin Lloyd.    

The search extended to the vehicles belonging to Hernandez, including the white SUV that was trailed by media on Thursday afternoon. 

As the search concluded authorities were seen loading what appeared to be bags of evidence into their vehicles, but there is no official word at this time on what those bags may contain. 

Police units surround Hernandez Home

By NBC10 News - Updated Saturday 2:56pm

Multiple Boston news outlets have reported seeing State Police detectives and k9 units enter the Hernandez home over the course of the last hour.

There is no word yet on the nature of the search, but NBC 10 will continue to update this story as the details emerge.


Hernandez remains silent after returning home

By Brian Crandall- Updated Saturday 9:54am

Aaron Hernandez returned to his North Attleborough home just before 5 o'clock Friday.

The New England Patriots tight end made a quick move to his garage door and in, without answering questions from the large media contingent that's been camped out on the street.

That's been the norm for the past few days...questions and no answers...since Hernandez was linked to the death of Odin Lloyd.

Lloyd's body was discovered Monday evening near a business park about a mile from Hernandez's home. The Boston man's death was ruled a homicide. A rental car linked to Hernandez is a key part of the investigation.

Over the course of the week, authorities have said very little, Hernandez nothing at all. Though a report from ABC Thursday cited sources as saying a cleaning crew was at Hernandez's home the day the body was discovered, the security cameras at the house had been tampered with, and when Hernandez's lawyers handed over a cell phone to police it was broken.

NBC10 has learned investigators obtained security camera footage from a Providence strip club in connection with the case. Providence Police told NBC10 they assisted North Attleborough Police and Massachusetts State Police in getting the footage from Club Desire Thursday, though Providence Police say they don't know what was on the video or when it was from.

State Police were briefly back at the Hernandez house before he returned.


Hernandez returns home; Endorsement deal terminated

 By Cierra Putman, Julie Tremmel, and Brian Crandall - updated Friday 6:06pm

New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez returned to his North Attleborough home late Friday afternoon, as police continued to investigate the killing of a Boston man about a mile from the football player's house.

The body of Odin Lloyd, 27, of Dorchester was found in an industrial park on Monday. Police said Lloyd, a semi-professional football player, had been shot several times.

A Massachusetts State Police source told NBC 10 that no arrest warrants were issued and that it was unlikely any would be issued over the weekend. NBC 10 confirmed with Attleboro District Court that three search warrants were filed earlier this week.

Providence police said they assisted North Attleborough police and Massachusetts State Police in obtaining security camera video from inside Club Desire at 1 Franklin Square.

Providence police said they don't know what was on the video or when the video was recorded. According to police, the club agreed to give a copy of the footage.

Things were quiet at Hernandez's home in North Attleborough most of Friday. Two Massachusetts state troopers went into the home for a very short time at about noon.

An Edible Arrangements was delivered to the house at about 11:45 a.m. And at about 1 p.m., two women were seen leaving the home just after FedEx dropped off three large boxes.

Hernandez's connection to the murder investigation has cost him at least one endorsement deal.

NBC 10 has learned that Hernandez has been dropped as the face of Muscle Milk.

"In light of the investigation involving Aaron Hernandez, CytoSport is terminating its endorsement contract with Mr. Hernandez, effective immediately," a company statement said.

The company did not say how much the contract was worth.

Puma, which also endorses Hernandez, told NBC 10 News in an email that it had no comment.
