• Hernandez investigation: Conn. attorney wants search warrants sealed for 90 days


    BRISTOL, Conn. (MyFoxBoston.com) – New Britain State Attorney Brian Preleski filed a motion Thursday to have four search warrants pertaining to the Aaron Hernandez murder investigation sealed for another 90 days.

    According to The Sun Chronicle, the motion will be addressed during a hearing scheduled for Tuesday in Bristol Superior Court.

    Authorities in Conn. have been assisting Mass. authorities in the investigation into the death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd. Lloyd, a semi-professional football player and Dorchester native, was found dead near Hernandez's home in North Attleboro late June.

    Hernandez, who has pleaded not guilty to Lloyd's murder, remains locked up at the Bristol County House of Corrections in North Dartmouth

    State troopers and police officers spent Tuesday and Wednesday searching a stretch of Route 95 in Dedham in connection with the murder investigation. Authorities were reportedly looking for a side mirror to a rental car which might have been broken off or tossed out the window the night Lloyd was murdered.

    Authorities were also possibly looking for ballistic evidence – perhaps bullets or shell casings – along the highway, a source told FOX 25.
