Person of Interest in Aaron Hernandez Case Dies in Car Accident

It’s the story that continues to get more unbelievable by the day.

According to a report from the Hartford Courant, investigators in the Aaron Hernandez murder case were prepared to interview Thaddeus Singleton III, an associate of Aaron Hernandez. However, Singleton was involved in an apparent car accident this weekend, driving a car registered to the uncle of Hernandez.

Per the Courant:

Multiple law enforcement sources said Thaddeus Singleton III, 33, was associated with Hernandez and of interest to investigators. Singleton was killed when the car he was driving flew off the road, split a pole in half and careened into Farmington Country Club. Police said the car was registered to Aaron Hernandez’s uncle, who is Singleton’s father-in-law.

His death was ruled an accident, and it is unclear whether he knew of investigators’ interest in his connection to the former New England Patriot star tight end, a Bristol native.

A woman was also injured in the crash, though there’s been no confirmation if she was a passenger in the vehicle or if she was hurt when the car crashed into a building at the Farmington Country Club.
