The strange things happening around the New England Patriots continued yesterday. With Rob Gronkowski undergoing his fifth surgery, this one on his back after four on his broken arm, now comes word of an even more serious situation. Aaron Hernandez is being questioned, and has had his home searched, in connection with the killing of a 27-year old man, according to an ABC News report.

The ABC report states:Investigators searched the North Attleborough home of New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez today following the killing of a man police call an "associate" of Hernandez, ABC News has learned.

Massachusetts State Police and prosecutors arrived at Hernandez's $1.3 million, 5,600-square foot home, which is outfitted with a home gym and a swimming pool, just before 5 p.m. and spent hours with him inside the mansion.

Two Hernandez friends tried to leave house at the time of the search, but they were stopped by a state police car at the end of driveway. Crime scene investigators later searched the car the men tried to leave in.

The report also states Hernandez was initially uncooperative with the police after they discovered a man's body in an industrial park near Hernandez' home. A rental car was located near the scene, which tied back to Hernandez.

According to SB Nation's Pats Pulpit, the situation has been described as "fluid," but the team has yet to release a statement.
