When Aaron Hernandez was arrested for murder police received, a search warrant for a small Cape-style house in Bristol, Connecticut. Investigators now believe that the home and an SUV rented in Hernandez’s name could hold clues to a dark past. Authorities were already searching for the SUV in connection with a July 2012 shooting that killed two people near a Boston nightclub.
The home located at 114 Lake Avenue was never lived in by Aaron Hernandez but instead belonged to his uncle.
According to Lt. Kevin Morrell, head of the Bristol Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Division:
“It seems like people came and went at different times. We have Mr. Hernandez as a frequent guest. He would spend a night, but we don’t have him ever living there.”
Twenty-seven-year-old Odin Lloyd was found dead not far from Hernandez’s mansion in North Attleborough, Massachusetts. Implicated in that murder are Hernandez’s longtime friends Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz. Both men lived in the Lake Avenue home for short periods of time.
Court filings claim that both men, with their criminal records, returned to the Connecticut home after Lloyd was killed.
The house belongs to Tanya Singleton’s father, Andres “Tito” Valderamma, Hernandez’s uncle by marriage. Tanya Singleton has been held in a Massachusetts jail after she was indicted on a criminal contempt charge. Singleton refused to testify against Aaron Hernandez during a grand jury hearing for evidence.
While searching the Lake Avenue home, police collected 100 cartridges of.38-caliber ammunition.
There are still a lot of unanswered questions in the Aaron Hernandez case, and, while a small home in Connecticut won’t answer all those questions, it does fit another piece of the puzzle together.
Do you think Aaron Hernandez is guilty of murder and possibly multiple murders?
