Terrence Hargrove, the brother of Saints DE Anthony Hargrove, was stabbed to death early Thursday morning.
Police found the body of 29-year-old Terrence Hargrove at his home in North Port, Fla., and immediately transferred him to Sarasota Memorial Hospital, where he passed away.
The police have identified a person of interest, but have not made any arrests.
Anthony Hargrove has been playing in the NFL for the past seven years, spending the past two with the Saints. He played his first two NFL seasons with the Rams before moving to Buffalo in 2006 and spending one-plus years with the Bills.
He had five sacks for the Saints during their Super Bowl-winning season in 2009.
