Police visit home of Patriots' Hernandez

NORTH ATTLEBOROUGH (AP) — State and local police spent hours at the home of New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez last night as another group of officers searched an industrial park about a mile away where a body was discovered the day before.

Police at the scene and prosecutors would not comment on the actions while Sports Illustrated, citing an unidentified source, reported that Hernandez was not believed to be a suspect in what was being treated as a possible homicide.

The magazine says police have spoken with Hernandez.

Sports Illustrated reports that the link between Hernandez and the case was a rented Chevrolet Suburban with Rhode Island plates that police had been searching for. The Sun Chronicle of Attleboro says the SUV was registered to Enterprise and investigators wanted to analyze it for fingerprints.

The Associated Press could not independently confirm the reports.

No cause of death had been released for the body found about 5:30 p.m. Monday.

Authorities did not say if the body was a man or a woman, and did not say whether it had been dumped in the area or the person had died at the site.

Details of the death were not released, but the DA’s office says based on the “nature and circumstances” of the discovery, the death is under investigation.
