A clerk in the Attleboro District Court told NFL.com's Ian Rapoport on Friday morning that no arrest warrants have been issued in the homicide investigation of Odin Lloyd.

There were reports Friday that a warrant had been filed for New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez for a charge of obstruction of justice.

The clerk told Rapoport her court is the only one with whom the Massachusetts State Police would file a warrant in connection to the homicide.

The request would arrive at the desk of the clerk magistrate, and if he allows it, the police would then arrest the person for whom the warrant is issued.

Lloyd's body was found at about 5:30 p.m. on Monday. An autopsy confirmed his death was a homicide, authorities said. Lloyd's family told The Associated Press that Lloyd had connections to Hernandez, although they would not elaborate. Lloyd was a semi-pro football player in the Boston area, having played for the Boston Bandits.

The Patriots and the NFL both indicated that they do not anticipate publicly commenting on the matter at this time.

UPDATE: NFL Network's Rich Hollenberg reported Friday afternoon live from Hernandez's North Attleboro home that Hernandez had returned to his house accompanied with his attorneys. The attorneys left after 15 minutes, but Hernandez remained in his house. The Attleboro District Court has closed for the weekend and no arrest warrant has been issued connected to the case, per NFL Network.
