More details emerge about investigation of Aaron Hernandez in 2012 double homicide

Details about the investigation of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez became more clear Tuesday when a search warrant application in Hernandez’s hometown of Bristol, Conn., was released.
As reported by the Hartford Courant, the warrant reveals information about police’s investigation into Hernandez’s involvement in a double homicide in Boston in July 2012. Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado were killed at an intersection after driving away from Cure Lounge in the South End.
Earlier in the night, surveillance cameras at the club showed Hernandez and Alexander Bradley, an acquaintance who later accused Hernandez of shooting him in the eye last February.
Bradley, who has a long police record, was held at the Hartford Correctional Center last fall, and police obtained a warrant to access recordings of his phone calls after a prison official told a Bristol detective that Bradley was discussing details of the Boston homicide investigation.
Police noted in the warrant that they received an anonymous tip about Hernandez’s alleged involvement. Investigators suspect that Hernandez was in an SUV that circled the block waiting for the victims outside the club before the occupants pulled alongside and fired five or six shots.
No charges have been filed in the double homicide. Hernandez remains in jail after being accused of killing Odin Lloyd in June. He also faces weapons charges.
