The hunt continues for the Aaron Hernandez murder weapon.

Calling this process a methodical one may be an understatement, but Connecticut state police dive crews continue their search of pine lake for that elusive gun used to kill Odin Lloyd.

Crews on scene say they’ve officially crossed off the area closest to shore along Pine Street and have shifted their search farther out.

The gridded out search works like this – a pair of buoys connected by a 20-foot rope is placed in an area of the pond, searched, and then shifted an arm’s length in either direction, and searched again.

The pond – which only gets about 12-feet deep – has been surprisingly clean after a dredging about 10 years ago and the lack of litter at the bottom has helped to expedite the search.

That said, things are expected to easily go into next week if searches continue to turn up empty.
