BOSTON (AP) -- New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez had a connection to a homicide victim found in an industrial park near the athlete's home, but family members and officials aren't commenting on the nature of their relationship.

Authorities have identified the body found about a mile from Hernandez's sprawling home in North Attleborough as that of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd. His cause of death hasn't been released.

Lloyd's family said Wednesday that he was a semi-pro football player for the Boston Bandits and had a connection to Hernandez, whose home was searched by police.

Bristol District Attorney Samuel Sutter's office is asking for the public's help to find a silver mirror cover believed to have broken off a car connected to the case.

Hernandez's attorney has declined to comment on the investigation.
