We have used Nuclear Quadrupole Resonance (NQR) to probe microscopically the response of prototypical quantum critical metal CeCoIn$$_5$$ to substitutions of small amounts of Cd or Zn for In. Such non-magnetic Cd or Zn substitutions induce a long range antiferromagnetism. In the case of Cd substitutions, approximately half of the Cd substituents induce local Ce moments in their close proximity, as observed by site-dependent longitudinal nuclear spin relaxation rates $$1/T_1$$. In the paramagnetic state, the values of $$1/T_1$$ at the main peak position are similar to those in the pure CeCoIn$$_5$$, while those are enhanced at the skirt position of spectrum. We will discuss about the heterogeneous electronic state realized in such a Zn substituted system and discuss about the coexistence of superconductivity with the antiferromagnetism, as well.
