Aaron Hernandez case goes underwater

Things have been quiet on the Aaron Hernandez front recently, but the news on the New England Patriots tight end has recently turned up a notch again. According to ESPN’s Rich Hollenberg, the police are now in scuba gear and searching a body of water near Hernandez’s house in the latest wrinkle of the murder case. In fact, the police are also wielding metal detectors in their quest to find…something.

As usual, investigators are busy searching some sort of property near Hernandez’s house, but we haven’t had any indication of what they are looking for. My only guess right now is they think the gun was thrown in the water, hence the metal detectors (point of inquiry, have they found the murder weapon yet?). Aaron Hernandez would be in huge trouble if they indeed found a gun (or some other truly incriminating metal piece of evidence in that body of water), but investigators have been mum on the key details despite a myriad of minor leaks to the local media.

It seems like more questions are raised than answers with each and every update on the Aaron Hernandez investigation, but it has only been six days since a jogger spotted Odin Lloyd’s body in an industrial park. Expect this underwater search to last for the majority of the day, because Hollenberg adds that the police have set up tents as well.
