As MDS mentioned earlier in the hour, Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez finds himself in the middle of an investigation regarding the death of a man described as a Hernandez “associate.”
The situation, which is extremely fluid, already has spawned inconsistent accounts. For example, SI reports that Hernandez has been questioned, while ABC reports that investigators plan to interview him. Likewise, SI reports that police may seek to search Hernandez’s home; ABC reports that police are indeed seeking a search warrant.
Per ABC, Hernandez has been “uncooperative.”
Reporters in Boston have been buzzing all afternoon regarding the situation. The team has not responded to a PFT email seeking comment, and folks close to Hernandez are saying nothing, given the gravity of the situation.
There’s still no evidence that Hernandez is or will be a suspect. Given that the the body was found in the vicinity of a car that, per SI, was rented in Hernandez’s name, a level of stupidity on par with Jesse Pinkman would be necessary to result in Hernandez actually being involved.
Then again, even Jesse Pinkman would know that it’s a good idea to be cooperative with police when there’s no reason to not be.
