NBC Connecticut has learned there is a connection between a fatal car crash in Farmington this weekend and the uncle of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.
The car, driven by Thaddeus L. Singleton III, 33, of Bristol, is registered to Andres Valderamma, the uncle of the former Patriots star.
Singleton is married to Valderamma’s daughter and the couple lived with him together on Lake Avenue in Bristol.
Investigators spent atleast two days last week collecting evidence and towing away a silver SUV.
Law Enforcment sources confirmed that the search warrants executed at the Lake Avenue home are in connection to the investigations of Odin Llyod in North Attleboro, Massachusetts and a 2012 double murder outside a Boston night club.
Singleton died after crashing into the Farmington Country Club at 806 Farmington Avenue around 3:30 a.m. Sunday morning.
A friend of Singleton's, 27-year-old Tabitha Perry, was in the passenger seat. Perry is recovering in the hospital, authorities said.
Perry’s mother says that her daughter and Singleton have been friends for around eight years.
Police are continuing to investigate the cause of the Farmington crash.
