The investigation into the death of a friend of New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez crossed state boundaries as police searched a strip club in Providence, R.I., searching for clues into the death of Odin Lloyd, per the Boston Herald.

A group of Patriots players that one strip club owner said were "regulars" included Hernandez, who was with Lloyd and two other men the night Lloyd was killed.

Lloyd was found dead Monday night about a mile from the tight end's home in Attleboro, Mass., and he has been at the center of the investigation with a warrant reportedly issued for obstruction of justice in the matter.
