NORTH ATTLEBOROUGH, MA - Authorities continue to investigate, but not talk about, the killing of a semi-pro football player whose body was found a mile from New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.
A spokeswoman for the Bristol County district attorney's office said Sunday that officials are not releasing details.
Spokeswoman Yasmina Serdarevic said officials also are not talking about the cause of death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, whose body was found on Monday. His death was ruled a homicide.
Hernandez was questioned and his home searched as part of the police investigation into the Dorchester man's death.
State police officers and dogs searched Hernandez's North Attleboro home for more than three hours on Saturday.
An attorney for Hernandez has said he would not comment on the searches.
New England Patriots spokesman Stacey James has said the team does not expect to comment during the police investigation. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was waiting for the legal process to take its course.
The Patriots drafted Hernandez out of Florida in 2010. He has since combined with Rob Gronkowski to form one of the top tight end duos in the NFL.
He missed 10 games last season with an ankle injury and had shoulder surgery in April but is expected to be ready for training camp. Last summer, the Patriots gave him a five-year contract worth $40 million.
