BRPD to question La'el about pregnant victim

Baton Rouge police are seeking former LSU offensive lineman La'el Collins for questioning about a recently murdered pregnant woman. Collins is not a suspect in the ongoing investigation.

According to multiple media reports, including WAFB TV in Baton Rouge, local police are trying to track down former LSU offensive lineman La'el Collins to question him in reference to a pregnant woman who was shot and murdered Friday night in Baton Rouge.

The victim, 29-year-old Brittney Mills, was eight months pregnant, although the baby was saved.

Police told WAFB that Collins is not a suspect in the ongoing investigation, but they are seeking to interview him about Mills, with whom it's believed Collins was romantically involved at one time.

The news comes at a hectic time for Collins, who is traveling to Chicago for the 2015 NFL Draft, which begins Thursday night. Collins is widely projected as a first-round pick, likely to go in the first 20 selections.

A product of Redemptorist High School, Collins was a three-year starter at LSU. In 2014 he received the Jacobs Blocking Trophy, handed out annually to the SEC's best offensive lineman, while being named First-Team All-SEC.
