Investigators have found a white hooded sweatshirt consistent with the one former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was described as allegedly wearing the night Odin Lloyd was shot to death, according to the Sun Chronicle. The sweatshirt, along with rounds of ammunition -- including .45-caliber ammunition, which was used in the killing of Lloyd -- was recovered at a Franklin (Mass.) condominium Hernandez rented.

Authorities also found a cranberry colored baseball cap with a light blue front panel and the words "Society" written backwards in white letters. The Herald reports that the "cap was similar to one Hernandez was allegedly seen wearing outside a Boston night club June 14 and was shown on Channel 7 News in Boston, according to the court records."

Trooper Michael Bates, a state police detective with the Bristol County District Attorney's Office, wrote in his affidavit that "The white sweatshirt could be used to assist in linking Hernandez to the scene of the crime. " He added: "The baseball hat could help provide the whereabouts of Hernandez on the Friday night before the homicide. This night, in particular, is a critical aspect in the timeline of events leading up to the homicide."

Hernandez was charged last week with first-degree murder in Lloyd's death. He was denied bail and is currently in jail awaiting trial.

Additionally, Hernandez is being sued for allegedly shooting a man in the face, and he's being investigated for a 2012 double slaying in Boston. In 2007, Hernandez, then a student at Florida, avoided arrest after allegedly punching a man and rupturing his ear drum.
