Source: Hernandez investigated in unsolved murder
BOSTON (WHDH) -- Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is being investigated in connection to an unsolved double homicide in Boston in 2012, according to 7News sources.
Two men were shot to death at the intersection of Shawmut and Herald Streets in July 2012. Police said an SUV pulled up next to the vehicle the two victims were riding in and opened fire on them.
Soon after the homicide, police asked the public for help in finding a grey SUV with Rhode Island registration plates seen leaving the scene. The SUV was found at a Bristol, Conn. home.
On Wednesday, Hernandez was charged with murdering Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player, in an execution-style shooting.
7News has confirmed from sources that Boston police are trying to figure out if Hernandez is linked to the unsolved homicide.
