Odin Lloyd's body was found a mile from the home of New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. Lloyd family members said Friday the two men were friends and were together the night Lloyd died.

Police have searched in and around Hernandez's home in North Attleborough, and Hernandez's attorney Michael Fee acknowledges media reports of the police search. But Fee says he won't have any comment on the investigation.

Authorities say Lloyd's death is being treated as a homicide.

Meanwhile, CytoSport, a California-based company that makes Muscle Milk and other supplements for athletes, said it was ending Hernandez's endorsement contract, effective immediately, because of the investigation.
