A prosecutor says a Boston man found dead in an industrial park about a mile from New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez's home was a homicide victim.
Bristol District Attorney Samuel Sutter's office said Wednesday the state medical examiner has identified 27-year-old Odin Lloyd and ruled he was a homicide victim.
Lloyd's family says he had connections to Hernandez but hasn't elaborated.
Sutter's office says investigators are asking for the public's help to find a silver mirror cover believed to have broken off a car somewhere between Boston and North Attleborough, where Hernandez lives.
Police have been at Hernandez's home for two days.
Hernandez's attorney says his client isn't commenting.
