(Boston, MA) -- Police continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of a man who may be connected to New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. The "Boston Globe" reports authorities are trying to determine if the apparent murder is drug-related. The uncle of a Dorchester man tells the paper his nephew is "possibly" the person whose body was found in North Attleboro, less than a mile from Hernandez's home.
WBZ-TV has identified the victim as 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, a semi-pro football player with the Boston Bandits. According to that report, Lloyd was dating the sister of Hernandez's girlfriend.
