Normally it is NFL players that get in trouble with the law, but a former NBA MVP is now connected to possible rape and a dead officer.
Derrick Rose, point guard for the New York Knicks, is under criminal investigation for a claim of rape.
Nadine Hernandez was one of the two officers working the case and now she has been found dead.
Hernandez was found critically wounded after police responded to reports of a shooting in Whittier California.
The officer was rushed to the hospital where she ended up dying shortly after.
A weapon was recovered from the scene, but since this is an ongoing investigation, there is not a lot of information to report.
The investigation is considering a suicide, but Hernandez was shot at the home of a retired LAPD lieutenant and not her own house.
There is a lot to this story that we don’t know yet, but this case is far from over.
The start of the NBA season is less than two weeks away and one their biggest stars are under rape investigation.
In the NFL, court appearances are common for many of the players. Aaron Hernandez was convicted of murder and we saw Ray Rice beat his fiancé on an elevator in Vegas.
If Derrick Rose is somehow connected to the death of the LAPD officer then that would be tragic for all involved, including the NBA.
