New York Daily News

A search of Aaron Hernandez’s hideout uncovered a stash of ammunition and a hooded sweatshirt the fallen football star was seen wearing the night of his friend’s murder, new court papers revealed Wednesday.

Investigators swarmed the apartment 12 miles from the mansion of the ex-New England Patriot in North Attleborough, Mass., on June 26, the day he was charged in the first-degree murder of Odin Lloyd, 27.

Police were directed to the apartment by one of Hernandez’s alleged accomplices, Carlos Ortiz, according to papers.

“Hernandez has another address that not many people know about,” Ortiz said, according to a 36-page summary of the search warrant executed by the Massachusetts State Police.

Ortiz allegedly told cops he might have left his cell phone in the apartment belonging to the 23-year-old former tight end.

Odin Lloyd was found dead in a clearing near an industrial park less than a mile from Aaron Hernandez's house in North Attleborough, Mass.

Odin Lloyd was found dead in a clearing near an industrial park less than a mile from Aaron Hernandez’s house in North Attleborough, Mass.

Three sizes of gun ammo, including .45-caliber bullets — the same type used to kill Lloyd — were found in the apartment in Franklin, Mass., that rents for $1,200 a month.

Investigators also found boxes of .22-caliber bullets, 7.62-mm. rounds and — crucially — a hooded white sweatshirt “consistent in color and type with the sweatshirt that Hernandez is observed to be wearing on surveillance cameras the night of the homicide,” the state police wrote.

Investigators also found a cranberry-colored cap with a light blue front and the word “society” spelled backward. Cops said Hernandez was seen wearing a similar hat at a Boston nightclub with Lloyd on June 14.

Prosecutors have said that night is when Hernandez allegedly became angry at Lloyd for speaking with people with whom he had a beef.

Prosecutors say Ortiz was in a car with Hernandez, Ernest Wallace and Lloyd on June 17, the night Lloyd was killed.
