New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is being questioned in connection with a murder investigation. 

Sources tell "Sports Illustrated" he is not considered a suspect. 

The reports indicate Massachusetts State Police have connected an SUV rented in Hernandez's name to the murder. 

The 27-year-old victim's body was found in a Boston suburb today close to the player's home.

ABC News reports however that Hernandez is not cooperating with authorities.
