Aaron Hernandez, the New England Patriots player who has been linked to the murder of a 27-year-old man, is facing an intense investigation, after police sorted through bags of items retrieved from his home on Sunday, according to Reuters.

Aaron Hernandez, 23, a tight end and rising star in the National Football League, is at the center of an investigation into the death last week of Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player for the Boston Bandits.

Lloyd's body was discovered on Monday in an industrial park about a mile from Aaron Hernandez's home in North Attleborough, some 40 miles south of Boston, near Gillette Stadium, where the Patriots play.

Investigators searched Aaron Hernandez's home for nearly four hours on Saturday, removing several bags of material. A law enforcement official with knowledge of the case said on Sunday that police investigators were now busy examining items from the home, but he declined to give details.

Aaron Hernandez's car was reportedly searched on Wednesday.

Aaron Hernandez has not spoken publicly about the case, and his agent and lawyer have repeatedly declined comment.

Journalists, photographers and television cameramen remained across the street from Aaron Hernandez's sprawling suburban home on Sunday after conflicting reports by local news outlets that an arrest warrant may have been issued.

An official at the local prosecutor's office declined comment on the murder case except to say the investigation remained active. There was no police activity at the home by midday on Sunday.

On top of the murder investigation, Aaron Hernandez also is being sued by a Connecticut man for allegedly shooting him in the face and partially blinding him after the two visited a strip club in Miami in February.

Alexander Bradley, the alleged victim, refused to cooperate with Florida police, so officials were forced to abandon the investigation.
