An apartment, which was maintained by former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez, yielded more evidence against him, according to police who searched the apartment. Inside the apartment, miles away from his actual home, contained numerous boxes of firearm ammunition and a hooded white sweatshirt possibly worn by Hernandez on the night prosecutors allege he orchestrated the killing of an acquaintance, Odin Lloyd.Hernandez have been charged with murder in Lloyd's slaying, and two associates, Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz, face charges in connection with the investigation. Authorities have said they've recovered videotape of several security cameras that show Hernandez, Wallace, and Ortiz picking up Lloyd at his home in Boston early on the morning of June 17, and driving into a North Attleborough industrial park, where Lloyd's body was discovered later that day. The sweatshirt found at Hernandez's apartment is consistent with the color and type observed to be wearing on surveillance cameras the night of the homicide, according to a State Police written affidavit. The late June searches at the apartment found five boxes of .45-caliber ammunition, the same caliber used to kill Lloyd, as well as rifle ammunition and a box of .22-caliber ammunition.Investigators also found a hat Hernandez may have worn on a night out with Lloyd at a Boston nightclub, several days before the murder of Lloyd, and a valet parking ticket from a hotel within walking distance of the nightclub.The items were among those noted in the search warrant "returns," documents that list what police find in a search.Apparently, Ortiz helped lead police to the apartment, according to the affidavit. Ortiz told police on June 25, the day before Hernandez was arrested. He also told police that he was with Hernandez the day of Lloyd's murder.
