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.
TSD will have more on this story as it develops.
