Ex-Patriot Hernandez denied bail in murder case

(Continued)

FALL RIVER, Mass. —

Earlier Thursday, residents of a condo complex in Franklin, a 20-minute drive from North Attleborough, described seeing a two-day police search of the unit that neighbors believed Hernandez was renting. Carol Bailey, who lives next door to the two-bedroom unit, said police removed items from the third-floor condo and asked her questions about its occupants. She said a new tenant of the unit told her in May that he was moving in with his cousin and she realized later that the second man was the Patriots player.

"I thought, 'This is Aaron Hernandez. He's renting a place here so he can have some peace and quiet,'" Bailey said Thursday.

She said she didn't see the two men often but Hernandez always had a hoodie pulled up when she saw him.

"I think all of us who recognized who it was didn't want to invade his privacy," she said.

Bailey said police towed a black Hummer with expired, temporary Ohio tags from the condo on Wednesday.

Complex resident Kathleen McKeown, whose front door is a few feet from the unit police searched, said there were things that struck her as strange even before that. She said someone had plugged an air freshener into a hallway wall outlet outside the unit and put a jar with fragrance sticks on the floor by the door, as if to mask an odor.

"I thought, 'Why would two guys be worried about the smell out in the hall?'" she said.

Authorities have said trouble that led to Lloyd's killing happened on June 14, when Lloyd went with Hernandez to a Boston nightclub.

"Apparently, Mr. Lloyd saw some people that he knew and began conversing with them," McCauley said Thursday. "The defendant took exception to that."
