Police search Conn. home linked to Hernandez

A home in Connecticut linked to former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been searched by police.

Television station WFSB reported that police from Massachusetts and Connecticut went through the Bristol home and its garage on Wednesday night. The station reported that the house is owned by Hernandez's uncle.

Police could be seen taking photos of a black folder that was removed from the small, single-family house.

Hernandez starred at nearby Bristol Central High School.

His mother, Terri Hernandez, was at her Bristol home on Wednesday, just hours before her the 23-year-old football player was arraigned in Massachusetts on a murder charge in the shooting death of Odin Lloyd, a semi-pro football player from Boston.

She told the Bristol Press that her son will be cleared of those charges.
