Police Spend 7 Days at Lake, But Can’t Find Aaron Hernandez’s Murder Weapon

Aaron Hernandez Face

The police have no idea where the gun is at.

They thought it might be in the lake, but after days of searching they have come up empty-handed. They believe either Hernandez’s friend Ernest Wallace or fiancee Shayanna Jenkins may have dumped the gun, but neither one of them are talking.

The police have a lot of circumstantial evidence, but the charge against Hernandez is murder, so they have to prove he pulled the trigger. Without an eye-witness or the murder weapon they might have trouble doing that.

After seven days of searching a lake and nearby pond in Bristol, Conn., state police divers have come up empty-handed in their search for the handgun used to kill 27-year-old semipro football player Odin Lloyd.

Authorities said Tuesday they don’t expect to return for further searches.
