BOSTON (AP) — A homicide victim found in an industrial park about a mile from Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez’s house was a semi-pro football player with connections to Hernandez, his family said.

Ursula Ward said police told her the body was that of her son Odin Lloyd, who played for the Boston Bandits. Ward would not say how Lloyd knew Hernandez and did not say if police told her how her son died. Earlier, an uncle said Lloyd had a connection to Hernandez but wouldn’t elaborate.

State police returned for the second day to Hernandez’s sprawling home in an upscale subdivision in North Attleborough, on the Rhode Island state line not far from the Patriots’ stadium in Foxborough. Hernandez attorney said he and the player wouldn’t have any comment on the situation.
