BOSTON, Mass. -- CBS Sports and MyFoxBoston are reporting former Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez is being investigated in connection with a double murder in Boston last year.
Police found three people shot in a car at a traffic light in Boston on July 16, 2012. Two of the people were dead. The third victim survived.
CBS Sports also cited a theory from the Boston Globe that Odin Lloyd may have had information about Hernandez' role in the unsolved killing.
Hernandez is now facing first-degree murder charges for the death of Lloyd.
The New England Patriots drafted Hernandez in the fourth round in 2010 out of Florida where he earned All-American honors and won a BCS National Championship. He also went to the Pro Bowl in his second year with the Patriots who dropped him from the team after his arrest this week.
