Cops: Evidence in Hernandez apartment

(Continued)

In a bedroom, they found a white hooded sweatshirt, according to the documents. A cranberry-colored cap, with a light blue front panel and the word “society” spelled backward, was found on a kitchen table, the documents said.

Surveillance video showed Hernandez wearing a similar sweatshirt the night Lloyd was killed on June 17, the records said.

And he was wearing “this same unique hat” in a picture shown on a local news station taken outside a nightclub June 14, the Friday before the killing, according to the documents. Prosecutors say Hernandez arranged Lloyd’s shooting because he was upset at him for talking to certain people at the club.

“The white sweatshirt could be used ... to assist in linking Hernandez to the scene of the crime,” wrote Trooper Michael Bates, in an affidavit in support of one of the search warrants.

“The baseball hat could help provide the whereabouts of Hernandez on the Friday night before the homicide,” Bates wrote. “This night in particular is a critical aspect in the timeline of events leading up to the homicide.”

The searches also turned up a magazine loaded with .45-caliber ammunition and 11 boxes of ammunition, including .22-caliber, .45-caliber and 7.62 mm rounds.

Besides the Odin killing, Hernandez has been linked to the investigation of a double homicide in Boston.

Police in Bristol said Tuesday that, based on evidence developed through the investigation of Lloyd’s slaying, Boston police asked for their help in their probe of the 2012 murders. Police have since searched a house in Bristol and seized a vehicle from that address.

Boston police have declined to comment on whether Hernandez is being looked at as a possible suspect in that case.

And over the weekend, a man who is reportedly married to Hernandez’s cousin was killed in a car crash in Connecticut. Thaddeus Singleton III, 33, of Bristol, was driving the car when it went airborne early Sunday and crashed into the wall of the Farmington Country Club.

Farmington police said they had no knowledge that the crash was linked to the Hernandez case.
