Just when you thought it could not get any crazier for former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. After being arrested and charged with first-degree murder and more, it has been revealed Hernandez is also allegedly being investigated for a double-murder that occurred in Boston back in July of 2012.
My Fox Boston had the exclusive report:
According to the Boston Police blog from that date, officers responded to the intersection of Shawmut Avenue and Herald Street just after 2 a.m. When they arrived, they found three people had been shot, two fatally, as they sat in a car at a traffic light.
The men were identified as Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu. The FOX 25 source said the men, who worked at a cleaning company in Dorchester, had just left a bar in the area.
Furtado and Abreu were sitting in the front seat of the vehicle when witnesses said the occupants of a gray or silver SUV with Rhode Island plates opened fire on it. The surviving victim was in the back seat. Investigators believed two others in the car fled the scene.
The source said that investigators were looking into Aaron Hernandez’s connection to the killing.
The source told Fox Hernandez is/was being investigated as a suspect in the double-killing. Hernandez already faces serious charges that could land him in jail for a large quantity of time for the alleged murder of an associate.
We had a feeling more details about Hernandez’s action in the past would start to trickle out, but we never thought anything this big may be linked to the former NFL star.
