NORTH ATTLEBOROUGH, Mass. -- Investigators plan to execute a search warrant on an Enterprise rental car registered to New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez on Wednesday, sources told ABC News, two days after a dead body was found near the car about a mile away from his home.
Hernandez was cooperative with police Tuesday night, sources told ABC News. The investigation is expected to continue through the week.
The search of the vehicle was planned after police spent hours at Hernandez's sprawling house in an upscale subdivision Tuesday night, while another group of officers searched an industrial park where the body of a man identified Wednesday as Oden Lloyd, 27, was found Monday. Lloyd was a linebacker for the semi-pro Boston Bandits football team. The team's manager told ABC that Lloyd last practiced with the Bandits on Saturday.
The case began with the discovery Monday afternoon of Lloyd, who was shot in the head, ABC's sources said. His body was discovered in a clearing near John Dietsch Boulevard, not far from a vehicle that had been rented by Hernandez, the sources said.
Suffolk County District Attorney Jake Wark told ABC News that Lloyd was arrested in 2008 on a misdemeanor charge stemming from a fight.
