Authorities are trying to resolve murder cases surrounding former NFL player, Aaron Hernández. The former New England Patriots player was accused last June of first degree murder of Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player. According to Fox News Latino, his house in Bristol, Conn., could be the key to find out what happened the night that ended with one of Hernández's friend's slaying.

The house actually belongs to Hernández's uncle, Tito Valderrama, but the former player and many of his friends frequented the building in 114 Lake Ave.
According to Connecticut authorities, two of Hernández's friends who face charges related to Lloyd's shooting, Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz, spent time living in the blue Cape-style house. Both men have criminal records.
"It seems like people came and went at different times," said Lt. Kevin Morrell, the head of the Bristol Police Department's Criminal Investigation Division, according to Fox News Latino. "We have Mr. Hernández as a frequent guest. He would spend a night, but we don't have him ever living there."
Latina.com reported that, upon searching the home for clues in the Lloyd case, police came across the SUV which was being sought in connection with the July 2012 shooting that killed two others at a Boston nightclub and 100 cartridges of .38-caliber ammunition.
The body of Odin Lloyd was found June 17 not far from Hernández's mansion in North Attleborough, Mass., Fox News Latino reported. Hernández pleaded not guilty.
According to the site, Wallace and Ortiz returned to the blue home the night after Lloyd was killed.
The former athlete's legal defense has pointed out that allowing the lawsuit to keep its course while he is under trial for the murder of 27-year-old athlete would be unfair, Telemundo reported.
The lawsuit filed in Florida was brought on by Alexander Bradley, a 30-year-old man who accused the former professional player of shooting him in the face after arguing in a nightclub last February.
According to Univision, Mr. Bradley is seeking economic compensation of at least $100,000 for damages and injuries.
Hernandez's contract with the Patriots was cancelled a few hours after the charges of homicide against him were announced. He remains under arrest, without right to bail, while a jury determines his legal situation.
