The body of a 27-year old male found in an industrial park only a mile away from New England Patriots' tight end Aaron Hernandez's home near Boston, MA, was identified as Odin Lloyd, someone police have called an "associate" of the football star. The story unravels as TMZ also reports that Hernandez was sued for allegedly shooting a man in the face only a few days before cops searched his house in this current and unrelated incident. This news calls into question Hernandez's innocence in the case of Odin Lloyd's death.

Cops focused on 23-year old Hernandez when they found a rented Chevrolet Suburban with Rhode Island plates near the scene that was tied to his name, a source told Sports Illustrated. However, police have consistently stated that Hernandez is "not considered a suspect." His home was searched on Tuesday evening in connection to the murder. When police arrived at Hernandez's home on Wednesday to probe for any more information the player may have, there was no answer at the door.

TMZ then broke news that a man named Alexander Bradley filed a lawsuit this month against Hernandez for shooting him after an altercation near a Miami strip club that occurred in February. The bullet wounds injured him badly, and took his right eye. He is demanding $100,000 for the damage Hernandez allegedly caused. The suit was dropped for paperwork errors, but Bradley has refiled as of Wednesday, according to reports

Aaron Hernandez is currently battling back from a season of injuries with the Patriots in which he caught 51 passes for five touchdowns.
