Patriots’ Aaron Hernandez tied to homicide case

The New England Patriots just can’t catch a break with their tight ends. First, Rob Gronkowski undergoes 900 surgeries (actually five), now, Aaron Hernandez is being questioned about a homicide in North Attleborough, about 40 miles south of Boston.

According to SI.com, police are searching Hernandez’s home, but Hernandez is not believed to be a murder suspect. However, a source told SI.com that a vehicle rented in Hernandez’s name has emerged as a key part of the investigation.

The Sun Chronicle of North Attleborough reported Tuesday that a 2013 Chevrolet Suburban is registered to Enterprise car rental and a source says Hernandez is connected to that vehicle.

A jogger found the body of a 27-year-old Boston man on Monday, less than a mile from Hernandez’s home.

About 10 cars were parked in front of Hernandez’s house, with an unmarked car blocking Hernandez’s driveway. Shortly after 7 p.m., about 10 Bristol county state police detectives entered the house. Two unidentified males attempted to leave the house and questioned the blocking of the driveway. After several minutes they were taken separately away by police but weren’t handcuffed, according to the SI.com report.
