Boston Police on Friday seized a silver SUV from the Bristol, Conn., home of Aaron Hernandez’s uncle, FOX 25 in Boston reports. Boston Globe reporter Wesley Lowery says the SUV is connected to the unsolved 2012 double murder that may have involved Hernandez.
FOX 25 Boston reporter Jessica Reyes reported on Twitter that the vehicle, a Toyota 4Runner, has Rhode Island plates.

Some of the information may be conflicting at this point.
A report from CNN on Thursday said police located and impounded the silver SUV linked to the 2012 shooting that left two men, Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu, dead, and a third injured. Witnesses reportedly said people in a gray or silver SUV with Rhode Island plates opened fire on others riding in a vehicle that was stopped at a traffic light. Perhaps CNN was premature with their report as it appears police did not impound the vehicle until Friday. Maybe the report should have said that police had located the SUV and were planning to seize it.
Reports on Thursday from CNN and ESPN’s Adam Schefter also said that Hernandez rented the vehicle tied to the 2012 shooting. Something may be amiss because, unless the rental car has been missing since the shooting, why would Hernandez’s uncle be holding onto a rental car for nearly a year? Maybe the vehicle used in the 2012 shooting was not a rental.
