Aaron Hernandez Not Ruled Out as Suspect in Murder Case; Not Cooperating With Police


New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is the talk of Boston after authorities in relation to a murder investigation. A man that is described as an “associate” of Hernandez was found dead less than a mile from his house and a car rented in Hernandez’s name has been linked to the crime.

While there were reports last night that Hernandez was not a suspect, that may not be the truth.

In a report Wednesday morning, police are saying that Hernandez has not been ruled out as a suspect and that he is not cooperating with police.

This is trouble.

While one tight end is recovering from surgery that could keep him out of the team’s season-opener, the Patriots have to be very concerned with what is in Hernandez’s future.

This is obviously a very fluid situation, but it is beginning to look worse and worse for Hernandez.

Earlier this morning, police spent hours searching his home before emerging with a box that could contain evidence. Two men were also detained when they tried to flee the home as police arrived.

We will keep you updated on the situation as more information becomes available.
