While the June murder of Odin Lloyd happened near Aaron Hernandez’s home in North Attleborough, Mass., it is Hernandez’s uncle’s home in Bristol, Conn., that may contain the most evidence to help authorities in their investigation of the murder.

Police are searching for clues at 114 Lake Ave. in Bristol, where two friends of Hernandez were staying, where they beckoned them for an outing that ended with another friend's slaying.

The former New England Patriots star, who grew up not far from the house in Bristol, is charged with murder in the shooting death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, whose body was found June 17 not far from Hernandez's mansion in North Attleborough, Mass. He has pleaded not guilty.

Investigators said Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz, Hernandez’s friends, had both lived at the Bristol residence at one time and returned to the house the night Lloyd was killed, according to the Associated Press.

Days after the June murder, police searched the home and found an SUV, rented in Hernandez's name, that Massachusetts authorities were seeking in connection with a July 2012 shooting that killed two people near a Boston nightclub.

Both men are currently being held at a Massachusetts jail in connection with the Lloyd case, the Boston Globe reported. Ortiz is charged with firearms possession and Wallace has been charged with being an accessory after the fact to murder. 

"It seems like people came and went at different times," Lt. Kevin Morrell, head of the Bristol Police Department's Criminal Investigation Division, told the Associated Press. "We have Mr. Hernandez as a frequent guest. He would spend a night, but we don't have him ever living there."

The house belongs to Andres "Tito" Valderamma, Hernandez's uncle by marriage. His late wife, Ruth, was the sister of Hernandez's father, Dennis. Valderamma lives in the home with daughters Tanya Singleton and Jennifer "Gina" Thebarge, and their families.

Singleton was indicted on a criminal contempt charge, after she refused to testify before the grand jury against Hernandez during its Lloyd investigation. She remains in a Massachusetts jail.

Valderamma and Thebarge have both declined to speak publicly about Hernandez and the murder cases.
