Police in his hometown of Bristol, Conn., said Tuesday that Boston police asked for their help with a double homicide investigation linked to the former NFL star.

Bristol Police Lt. Kevin Morrell said the request was based on evidence developed through the investigation of Lloyd’s slaying. He said police were asked to search the same home in Bristol for both investigations, and they seized a vehicle at the address Friday.

Two men died in the shooting in Boston’s South End on July 15, 2012, and another was wounded. Witnesses reported seeing gunfire coming from a gray SUV with Rhode Island license plates. Authorities said 29-year-old Daniel Jorge Correia de Abreu and 28-year-old Safiro Teixeira Furtado were killed, but police didn’t identify the third victim.

Boston police have declined to comment on whether Hernandez is being looked at as a possible suspect in that case.

Over the weekend, a man who is reportedly married to Hernandez’s cousin was killed in a car crash in Connecticut.

Thaddeus Singleton III, 33, of Bristol, was driving the car when it went airborne early Sunday and crashed into the wall of the Farmington Country Club, becoming lodged 5 feet above the ground, police said. They said the car was registered to a man, reportedly Hernandez’s uncle, whose home has been searched several times, most recently on Tuesday, and from which the vehicle was seized on Friday. A 27-year-old female passenger was injured.

Authorities said the investigation into the crash would take a significant amount of time, but Farmington police said they had no knowledge that is was linked to the Hernandez case.

Hernandez has been connected to still more incidents involving guns, although none has resulted in criminal charges against him.

A man who claims Hernandez shot him in the face in February after an argument at a Florida strip club filed a civil lawsuit days before police arrested Hernandez.
