... Not so good news

The state and local police spent hours at the North Attleborough, Mass., home of New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez last night as another group of officers searched an industrial park about a mile away where a body was discovered the day before.

The police at the scene and prosecutors would not comment on the actions, while Sports Illustrated, citing an unidentified source, reported that Hernandez was not believed to be a suspect in what was being treated as a possible homicide. The magazine said the police have spoken with Hernandez.

Sports Illustrated reported that the link between Hernandez and the case was a rented Chevrolet Suburban with Rhode Island plates that the police had been searching for. The Sun Chronicle of Attleboro, Mass., said the SUV was registered to Enterprise and investigators wanted to analyze it for fingerprints.

No cause of death had been released for the body found about 5:30 p.m. Monday.
