Former NFL lineman, Jason Fabini’s house in Fort Wayne, Indiana was searched by the FBI on Thursday morning – according to the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette.
The search was a part of an “ongoing, but unspecified, investigation, ” and included his brother Michael’s property, where the FBI spent the majority of the day searching.
Sources close to the situation said that Jason Fabini is not a target of the investigation.
Although not much information was released, neighbors claim that they had been suspicious, “for awhile,” especially as Michael Fabini’s house “doubled in size” over the past couple of years. The neighbors said the construction began about 18 months ago.
According to records, the house has over 7,000 square feet of furnished space, a huge difference in comparison to the neighbors houses that range from 2,500 -3,000 square feet. In 2009 the property was valued at 277,500 records say…. and in 2011? A whopping $745,400!
Jason Fabini released a statement through his attorney late Thurday afternoon, saying, “I have cooperated fully with authorities, and will continue to do so. I have not been charged, nor do I expect to be charged with a crime,” he said in the statement. “I expect the community will have many questions as rumors circulate and this investigation continues, but I ask that we trust in the authorities to do their job.”
Jason Fabini played 11 NFL seasons, including eight with the Jets, one with the Dallas Cowboys and two with the Washington Redskins. His last season was in 2008.
