New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is under investigation this week after a body was discovered near his home on Monday. Police searched Hernandez's home Tuesday night looking for clues and evidence. Witnesses say police were seen leaving the residence with a box full of items.
Sports Illustrated reported that the link between Hernandez and the case was a rented sports utility vehicle with Rhode Island plates that police had been searching for. No cause of death has been released about the body.
The Patriots drafted Hernandez out of Florida in 2010.
