(Newser) – Police probing a possible murder in Massachusetts have searched the home of New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, but investigators aren't commenting on what link he may have to the case, the Sun Chronicle reports. Hernandez isn't considered a suspect in the death of a 27-year-old man whose body was found around a mile away from Hernandez's home, sources tell Sports Illustrated, but a vehicle rented in Hernandez's name is believed to be a focus of the investigation.
