(AP Photo/Lloyd family via the Boston Bandits ) by Bridget Murphy BOSTON (AP) — A body was found, search warrants were issued, investigators conducted interviews — all the signs of an impending police action were in place by week’s end. Still the family of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd waited for answers. A jogger found Lloyd’s body in an industrial park Monday, a mile from the home of New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. Family members said Friday the two men were friends who were together the night Lloyd died. They said Lloyd had been dating Hernandez’s fiancee’s sister for about two years. Police have searched in and around Hernandez’s sprawling home in North Attleborough, not far from where the Patriots practice. Hernandez’s attorney Michael Fee has acknowledged media reports about the state police search of Hernandez’s home but said he wouldn’t have any comment on it.
