New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is reportedly a person of interest in a murder case unfolding in Massachusetts.

ABC News reports that investigators are seeking a warrant to search the home of “no. 81″ in connection with a body found in Attleboro Falls, MA. Hernandez wears jersey no. 81 for the Pats, and lives near where the body was discovered.

He has reportedly been uncooperative with police thus far in the investigation, but a rental car found near the murder scene led police to Hernandez. The 23-year-old Pro Bowler was a fourth round draft pick out of Florida in 2010, and signed a five year extension last summer with a $12.5 million bonus.
