    (NECN: Josh Brogadir, Attleboro, Mass.) - Of the 104 pages of documents released Thursday, much of it is information we've seen before, although some of it is new with arrest warrants and search warrants, and there are eight new surveillance pictures from the day of Odin Lloyd's murder, not completely clear but a few appear to show Hernandez with a gun.

    A day after the public's first look at Aaron Hernandez in about a month, we're seeing surveillance pictures of him for the first time appearing to hold a handgun in his home on the day Odin Lloyd was killed.

    The images are grainy, black and white photo copies released by the court as part of a motion by media groups.

    This comes 24 hours after a probable cause hearing for the former New England Patriot was continued until August 22 at the request of Bristol County prosecutors.

    In one image, Hernandez appears to hold the gun by its barrel.

    In other stills stamped June 17, 2013, the early morning prosecutors say Lloyd was shot five times with a .45 caliber gun, Hernandez can be seen getting out of his white Audi SUV and another in which two men are getting into a silver sedan.

    Odin Lloyd's sister described seeing that Nissan Altima as her brother left their 10 Fayston Street Dorchester home "with three other males whose identities she did not know."

    Also in the documents, forensic analysis of the Altima showing fingerprints of "Odin Lloyd," "to an individual with several aliases to Ernest G. Wallace" and to "another male individual who investigators have determined is associated with Aaron Hernandez."

    Carlos Ortiz is not mentioned here by name, or later when an "individual stated that he was instructed by Ernest Wallace to take possession of a firearm from inside Aaron Hernandez's rented 2012 Nissan Altima shortly after the homicide of Odin Lloyd."

    Now, well over a month after he was gunned down, investigators have not said if they found the weapon used to kill him.

    It's been a busy courthouse in Attleboro, Wednesday Hernandez made his first appearance in about a month when he pleaded not guilty to murder.

    104 pages of docs were released Thursday, and Ernest Wallace will be back in court Friday for a pre-trial hearing on charges of being an accessory to murder after the fact.
