Whitecap star investigated

A Vancouver Whitecaps star player has been questioned by police in Peru following the death of a teenager.

Peruvian newspaper El Comercio reports that Whitecaps striker Yordy Reyna spent several hours at a police station, then left without saying much to local journalists.

Alessandra Chocano, a 16-year-old volleyball player, was found dead at an apartment building days earlier. Much about the circumstances remain a mystery.

According to the victim's lawyer Reyna is not considered a suspect.

A Whitecaps spokesperson says Reyna attended the same party Sunday, the day the victim died.

Local media is reporting that Chocano spent Saturday night with friends at a club in Miraflores, an affluent suburb of the capital city of Lima.

The party continued into a high-rise apartment, where the teenager's body was found covered with blood on a bedroom floor around 5 a.m. Sunday.

Peruvian news previously reported Reyna was friends with Chocano, but his lawyer said that isn't the case.
