Former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez may be linked to more murders than he was charged with Wednesday, June 26th. According to TMZ, Boston police may be investigating Hernandez for a 2012 drive-by shooting that left 2 men dead.
A rep for the Suffolk County District Attorney confirmed that there was an "active investigation" into the case. When asked if the 23-year old football player was involved the rep wouldn't comment. However, one source close to the situation said, "It's safe to assume he is now involved."
TMZ also unearthed a photo of Hernandez throwing up gang signs. He is reportedly linked to the Bristol Bloods street gang in Connecticut. The photo was taken when Hernandez was 17.
The player reportedly has been in fear for his life in recent months and trying to separate himself from his old associates since he signed a $40 million contract last year with the Patriots. But according to TMZ his old homies felt like he owed them his time and respect.
As we previously reported. Hernandez was charged first degree murder in connection to the shooting death of 27-year old Olin Lloyd. He's also facing 5 additional gun related charges.
Hernandez was just in court requesting bail. The judge in the case denied his request.
