Star Patriots tight end is apparently of some interest to law enforcement in the North Attleboro area.

ABC News described Hernandez as being uncooperative with police, which isn't good. However, Hernandez is not said to be a suspect in the case.

Sports Illustrated:
Hernandez is not believed to be a murder suspect, according to a source, but a vehicle rented in his name has emerged as a key piece of evidence in the investigation. The Sun Chronicle of Attleboro, Mass., reported on Tuesday that police identified a rented 2013 Chevrolet Suburban with Rhode Island license plates in connection with the possible homicide. According to the paper, the vehicle is registered to Enterprise and investigators were hoping to analyze it for fingerprints. A source said Hernandez's name is tied to that rental vehicle.

A jogger found the body of a 27-year-old Boston man on Monday in an North Attleboro clearing, less than a mile from Hernandez's home.

Hernandez originally slipped in the draft due to personality concerns as he had been caught smoking marijuana. Still, the jump from marijuana to murder would seem pretty huge.

Hernandez has never shown any sketchy behavior before, and has been nothing but a stand up guy while wearing a Patriots uniform. He was given a five year contract extension by the Patriots last off-season, and in response he donated $50,000 to the Myra Kraft Giving Back Fund. At the time, Patriots owner Robert Kraft had this to say about Hernandez:

"I just think he's a super player, and really a first-class guy," Kraft said. "Some people might see all the tattoos on him and think. ... Maybe 10 years ago I was in that class, (now) I think 'Wow, this guy's a good guy.' And we made a big commitment to him."

This is pretty scary stuff, it obviously effects the Patriots on the field if he is involved in anyway. He could face jail time or at the least suspension by the league.

There is obviously a lot we don't know, and we should save our judgements until more facts become clear.

As of this moment, police have entered Hernandez's home and blocked off the area. They've taken two males into custody, neither of them are Hernandez.
