Aaron Hernandez Charges: Double Murder? [UPDATE]
In the wake of Aaron Hernandez's charge with murder, authorities are investigating a possible connection to a double murder that occurred in Boston last summer.
ABC News, The Boston Globe, and USA Today are reporting that the case being examined is a drive-by shooting death that took the lives of Daniel Abreu and Safiro in July.
Investigators are tying Hernandez to the murder because of his involvement in a fight at a club with the two men the night they were killed. Later on, an unidentified person shot at Abreu's SUV, killing both Abreu and Furtado. According to USA Today, the case remains unsolved.
Hernandez was charged with the murder of a 27-year-old semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, who was found shot near Hernandez's home. He is currently being held without bail; he will appear before the Bristol County Superior Court on Thursday to appeal the ruling.
Prosecutors say that they have footage of Hernandez showing his gun to friends, saying that he was upset and could not trust anyone anymore.
More details continue to emerge about the second accusation involving Hernandez.
