New England Patriots Aaron Hernandez Questioned In Murder Investigation


Yikes. Bad news for both the New England Patriots and Aaron Hernandez as the Pats tight end is currently being questioned by police in a homicide investigation.

As of this moment, Hernandez is not considered a suspect though a car rented in his name has become a key piece of evidence in the investigation.

Per Sports Illustrated:

New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was questioned by police investigating a possible homicide in this town 40 miles south of Boston. 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 rented 2013 Chevrolet Suburban is the vehicle in question, which was linked to previously being used by Hernandez.

The investigation is stemming from the discovery of a 27 year old male jogger who was found dead on Monday, less than a mile from Hernandez’s home.

There are no further details available at this time and the Patriots tight end has declined comment.
