Gun Used In Boston Double Murder Linked To Hernandez Found

SPRINGFIELD (CBS) - A gun that was used in a 2012 double murder in Boston allegedly linked to Aaron Hernandez was found in a car in June according to CBS 3 Springfield.

According to a state police report, Jailene Diaz-Ramos, of Bristol, Connecticut, was involved in an accident on June 21 on I-91 in Springfield. A .38 caliber Smith and Wesson revolver was found in the car.

Sources confirm the gun was sent for ballistics testing and it was the weapon used in the killing of two men outside a Boston bar in 2012. Boston Police have been investigating Hernandez in connection with the murders.

Diaz-Ramos was arraigned in Springfield District Court for illegal possession of a gun and ammunition.

A vehicle towed from Aaron Hernandez's uncle's home in Bristol, Connecticut matches the description of a car Boston Police have been looking for in the fatal shooting in Boston's South End last July.

Hernandez, a former Patriots tight end, is currently charged with murder in the shooting death of Odin Lloyd.

Sources tell WBZ Lloyd may have been executed because he had information about Hernandez's possible involvement in the double homicide, angering the former Patriot because he was talking about it, sources say, in the days before Lloyd was gunned down.

According to the police report, Diaz-Ramos claimed a friend named "Chicago" and some football players she drove to work put the briefcase in the trunk.

It's unclear if Hernandez and Diaz-Ramos are connected in any way other than ties to Bristol, Connecticut.
