Hernandez has been linked to the shooting that left Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu dead. Prosecutors were reportedly making the case to a Suffolk County grand jury that Hernandez should be charged for the murders.
Diaz-Ramos reportedly told police the gun belonged to a friend she referred to as “Chicago”. She told police she drove Chicago and his friends to work, that they are football players, and that the gun was left in the car because she did not want them to take it to work.
