NFL: Patriots' Aaron Hernandez Questioned in Homicide Probe

Jun 18 2013, 6:42pm CDT | by

New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was questioned by police regarding a possible homicide in which a vehicle rented in his name is evidence.

New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was questioned by police regarding a possible homicide in which a vehicle rented in his name is evidence. 

Sports Illustrated's Pete Thamel and Greg Bedard note the homicide allegedly took place in North Attleboro, Mass. which is 40 miles south of Boston. According to them, a source with knowledge of the investigation said Massachusetts state police spoke to Hernandez on Monday and were interested in possibly searching his home.  

A jogger found the body of a 27-year-old Boston man on Monday in a local clearing, less than a mile from Hernandez's home, per Thamel and Bedard. USA Today Sports reports it is unclear whether the victim died there or if the body was dumped. Police are investigating the possibility of foul play. 

ABC News said its sources say the dead man might be an associate of Hernandez. 

Hernandez is not believed to be a murder suspect, although the Sun Chronicle of Attleboro reported on Tuesday that police identified a rented 2013 Chevrolet Suburban with Rhode Island license plates in connection with the possible homicide. 

The report says the vehicle is registered to Enterprise with Hernandez's name tied to it. 

Local police have denied comments , per USA Today Sports. The Bristol County District Attorney's office said,"As the investigation is in its early stages, no further details about this case will be released at this time."

The 23-year-old Hernandez caught 51 passes for 483 yards and five touchdowns last season. The 2010 fourth-round pick has 175 receptions for 1,956 yards and 18 touchdowns in his career, getting named to the Pro Bowl in his second season.
