Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder in the death of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old Boston semi-professional football player whose body was found June 17 about a mile from Hernandez's home in North Attleborough, Mass.

Authorities believe Lloyd was killed with a .45-caliber Glock, which hasn't been recovered.

Divers spent eight hours Monday at the lake, which has an average depth of 4 1/2 feet and is 12 feet at its deepest point.
