New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez questioned in homicide
Question of the Day
Massachusetts police spent Tuesday evening at the home of New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez as part of an investigation into a homicide scene about a mile away.
Investigators said Mr. Hernandez has not been named a suspect, Fox News reported, but police also report that he’s not being cooperative and answering all their questions, Fox News said.
On Monday, law enforcement responded to a 911 call of a body at an industrial park about a mile from Mr. Hernandez’s house, CBS reported. Sports Illustrated said police became interested in the football star after learning that a car found at the scene — a Chevrolet Suburban with Rhode Island license plates — was a rental linked to Mr. Hernandez. CBS subsequently reported that the vehicle “has emerged as a key piece of evidence in the investigation.”
A local newspaper, The Sun Chronicle in Attleboro, reported that police were combing the vehicle for fingerprints.
Investigators still don’t know the cause of death of the victim, a 27-year-old man who’s not yet been identified. The body was found about 5:30 p.m. Monday by a jogger, who then alerted authorities.
The jogger described the body to WBZ-TV as “an African-American male, probably 25-35 years old, decently dressed. He was stiff, motionless. One of the police officers came back later and said it looked [like] the guy had been shot somewhere else and dumped here.”
