Police Find Gun Used In 2012 Double Murder Linked to Aaron Hernandez
As time rolls along with former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez behind bars for the alleged murder of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, new developments continue to arise in a separate case that could lead to more trouble for Hernandez. Massachusetts State Police have revealed that a firearm discovered in the midst of a random traffic accident investigation this past June has been linked to a double murder in 2012 that police are already investigating Hernandez for.
Back on June 21st, a four-vehicle crash on I-91 in Springfield, MA sent 19-year-old Jailene Diaz-Ramos to the hospital and her car was towed away from the scene. In the customary police search of her vehicle, State Police found a gun with several rounds of ammunition.
Ballistics tests were done, and the gun's markings match those found at the scene of two men being shot and killed outside of a Boston bar last year. Law enforcement has since passed along those details to a grand jury.
Diaz-Ramos has since been arrested and charged with possession of a firearm without a license, possession of ammunition without a license and improper storage of a firearm. When asked about the weapon being in her car, Diaz-Ramos told authorities that it belonged to her boyfriend and "he was the last one to use the car to visit a football player." Police did not reveal if Diaz-Ramos identified Hernandez as the football player her boyfriend was visiting, however both Diaz-Ramos and her boyfriend are from Hernandez's hometown of Bristol, Connecticut.
