New court documents released Friday in Bristol, Conn., show that investigators are looking into whether the fiancée of former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez assisted in disposing of weapons after the killing of his acquaintance, Odin Lloyd, in June, the Hartford Courant reported on Friday.
According to the Courant, the documents indicate that investigators searched a storage unit rented to Shayanna Jenkins, Hernandez’s fiancée, and they allege she made “overt attempts to hide evidence . . . and to hinder and mislead” the investigation into the death of Lloyd.
Hernandez has been charged with the first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of Lloyd, 27, of Dorchester, on June 17. Two other men are being held on lesser charges in connection to the killing.
Jenkins, who has a daughter with Hernandez, has been present at the former Patriot’s court hearings but has not spoken to the media.
She has not been charged in connection to Lloyd’s death.
