Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez saw his home reportedly visited by police Tuesday night in connection with an apparent homicide. So far he’s not considered to be a suspect.
Some disturbing news has emerged regarding one of the Patriots stars in a story that appears to be developing Tuesday night.
According to Sports Illustrated Aaron Hernandez was questioned by police on Monday as part of a homicide investigation, and Tuesday night police visited – and have apparently entered – Hernandez’ North Attleboro home.
Greg Bedard reported via Twitter that there were at least 10 police cars on the scene and that while Hernandez so far isn’t considered to be a suspect, a 2013 Chevrolet Suburban rented in the Patriots tight end’s name has emerged as a key piece of evidence in the investigation.
The victim in the case is reportedly a 27-year-old Boston man who was found by a jogger on Monday in an North Attleboro clearing, less than a mile from Hernandez’s home. ABC News reports that the victim is an “associate” of Hernandez and that the veteran was cooperative with authorities Tuesday night.
According to Bedard, two men have reportedly left Hernandez’ home and were taken away in two separate cruisers. However, neither were handcuffed and simply left with police.
Nick Underhill of MassLive.com reports that police spent a lot of time investigating a white Audi that was in the tight end’s driveway before Hernandez arrived home and have since started looking into the trunk of the car he arrived in before closing the garage door. Underhill reported later on that they left his home just before 10pm ET.
Here’s a photo posted earlier from Bedard when police entered Hernandez’ home:
