The victim in a North Attleboro homicide that has led police to question Patriot's tight end Aaron Hernandez has been identified as 27-year-ago Odin Lloyd.

Lloyd is a linebacker for the semi-pro football team the Boston Bandits.

Hernandez has only been questioned as an "associate" of the victim and not as a suspect.

Lloyd's body was found in a North Attleboro industrial park in a clearing near John Dietsch Boulevard on Monday evening.

The New England Patriot's have declined to comment on the situation citing the ongoing investigation.

State Police are back at the industrial park today searching the area. A gun has been found in the woods in the area near where the body was found.

Police are now searching back yards of homes in West Wood Estates where Hernandez lives.

The victim is believed to be the boyfriend of Hernandez's girlfriend's sister.
