Authorities found on a year-old surveillance video that Aaron Hernandez and two victims of a double homicide, a crime authorities have been investigating Hernandez for, were in the same Boston nightclub on the night the double homicide took place, the Hartford Courant reported.
That bit of news doesn't make Hernandez guilty by any stretch, but at least authorities can put the victims and Hernandez in the same place on the night the victims were killed.
Hernandez is being held on first-degree murder charge in connection with the killing of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd on June 17. As police investigated that crime, they also started looking into any possible involvement Hernandez had in an unsolved double homicide in Boston on July 16, 2012.
Daniel Abreu, 29, and Safiro Furtado, 28, were shot and killed in their car in the early-morning hours after leaving a club. A third person was injured but survived. The Courant said police were searching for a gray SUV with Rhode Island plates in connection with that crime. In June, police impounded a silver Toyota 4Runner with Rhode Island plates when they searched the Bristol, Conn. home of Hernandez's uncle.
The Hartford Courant reported the surveillance video showed Hernandez and the two victims "at the same establishment hours before they died," according to the Courant's unnamed law enforcement sources.
No charges have been filed in that double homicide. Police have located the gun used in that crime.
