Massachusetts authorities are searching Pine Lake in Bristol, Conn., in hopes of recovering a possible weapon connected to former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, police have confirmed to local station WFSB Channel 3. Police crews arrived at the lake after receiving a tip from someone saying the murder weapon used to kill 27-year-old Oldin Lloyd might have been tossed there, according to the report. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder in the death of Lloyd, a Boston semi-professional football player whose body was found June 17 in an industrial park about a mile from Hernandez's home. He was shot five times. Authorities believe Lloyd was killed with a .45-caliber Glock, which they have said hasn't been recovered. Authorities recovered an ammunition clip for .45-caliber bullets in Hernandez's Hummer as well as ammunition of the same caliber inside a condo he rented in Franklin, Mass. Hernandez's probable cause hearing was delayed last week to give prosecutors more time to present evidence in the murder case to a grand jury. That hearing was rescheduled for Aug. 22. Hernandez will continue to be held without bail until then. Prosecutors say Hernandez orchestrated Lloyd's killing because he was upset at him for talking to people Hernandez had problems with at a nightclub a few days earlier. Authorities have not said who fired the shots, but documents filed in Florida portray the former Patriot as the triggerman. According to the records, Ortiz told police that Wallace said Hernandez fired the shots. The Associated Press contributed to this report.
