BRISTOL, Conn. (WTNH ) -- Investigators in the Aaron Hernandez case are back in Connecticut Tuesday, apparently looking for the gun they say the former Patriot star used to commit murder.
That search happened in a 50 acre man made lake in Bristol for the second day in a row.
All eyes were glued to Pine Lake in search of a gun.
Much different than eyes glued to the football field watching ex Patriots star and Bristol native, Aaron Hernandez.
"Aaron Hernandez was the pride of Bristol. If he's found guilty, he'll be the shame of Bristol," said Bill Fontaine, Bristol.
Police say they are searching for a gun used in Odin Lloyd's murder. Investigators say surveillance photos from Hernandez's North Attleboro Masschusetts home show Hernandez holding what appears to be a gun shortly before and after Lloyd was killed.
His body was found on June 17th near Hernandez's home. Police warrants also say Hernandez returned to Lake Avenue in Bristol on June 17th with two accomplices, Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz. Pine Lake is just a short distance away.
"Hopefully he's not guilty but it seems like he knows something or is guilty of something," said Fontaine. "I think everybody across the country is looking at Bristol as a place where you call up the good old boys and kill somebody. It's really unfortunate."
"There has to be a gun there because they wouldn't be putting in so much time and effort," said Elizabeth, of Bristol
The search was only in a small section of the lake on Monday, it expanded Tuesday.
"It's interesting. Nothing in Bristol happens like this. I am into crime and it's very exciting because it's local," said Elizabeth.
