Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez may be facing even more trouble. Just a day after Hernandez was charged with first-degree murder and five gun related charges, there are reports that he is now being investigated as a possible suspect in a double-murder that took place in downtown Boston back in 2012.
FOX 25 has learned exclusively that investigators are looking into Aaron Hernandez as a possible suspect in a double murder that happened on July 16, 2012 in downtown Boston.
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.
This is just the latest instance of violence that Hernandez is being linked to.
On top of the murder of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd and the link to the double-murder in Boston, Hernandez is being sued for allegedly shooting a man in the face at a Florida night club.
Hernandez is facing a potential life sentence for the murder of Lloyd, but it looks like his legal troubles could be far from over and he may have more than murder to clear his name of.
