Police reportedly impound SUV tied to 2012 double murder that may have been rented by Aaron Hernandez
Aaron Hernandez’s possible involvement in a July 2012 double murder that took place in Boston has become a bit clearer, as Boston Police have reportedly located and impounded a silver SUV that may be tied to the shooting. According to CNN.com, investigators believe Hernandez was renting the vehicle at the time of the double murder last summer.
On Thursday morning, multiple reports revealed that Hernandez is being investigated as a possible suspect in the July 2012 incident. Later, a report from the Boston Globe claimed that law enforcement officials have reason to believe Hernandez may have killed 27-year-old Odin Lloyd earlier this month because Lloyd had information about the double murder.

A Boston Police blog entry from last year stated that two men, Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu, were shot to death while they sat in their car at a red light. The shooting is believed to have stemmed from a fight that had broken out at Rumor nightclub in Boston earlier in the night between two men and a group that included Hernandez. According to witnesses, the shooters opened fire on the victims from a gray or silver SUV with Rhode Island license plates.
Coincidentally (or not), the silver SUV police reportedly impounded on Thursday that they believe was rented last year by Hernandez had a Rhode Island registration.
