Both Patriots owner Robert Kraft and coach Bill Belichick were interviewed by Bristol County investigators after Aaron Hernandez' arrest for the murder of Odin Lloyd last year, and 33 pages of text messages between Belichick and Hernandez between Februrary 2013 and May 2013 -- a period of time prior to Lloyd's killing -- have been submitted as evidence by prosecutors in preparation for the trial of the former Patriots tight end.

According to the document, Belichick and Kraft were interviewed last Monday, Aug. 20, which was three days after the team's home exhibition game against the Buccaneers and three days before another exhibition game at Detroit. Also interviewed that day were Berj Najarian, the team's director of football/head coach administration, and Nick Caserio, the team's director of player personnel. Nine days later, investigators completed what was described as a "Patriots Locker Inventory."

Lloyd was murdered on June 17 and Hernandez was arrested for the crime on June 26. Hernandez -- who has subsequently been charged with two 2012 murders -- pleaded innocent to the Lloyd murder, and also pleaded innocent to the 2012 charges.
