The house belonging to the uncle of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez could hold many of the clues police seek regarding two separate cases.
Authorities believe that a blue home located in Bristol, Conn. could hold the answers to missing pieces involved in two separate homicide cases: one involving the death of Odin Lloyd, the second, a double homicide that occurred in 2012. Hernandez appears to have played a part in both.
The 114 Lake Ave. home belongs to a man named Andres "Tito" Valderamma, who is Hernandez's uncle by marriage. Valderamma lives in the home with his two daughters, Tanya Singleton and Jennifer "Gina" Thebarge. Singleton and Hernandez are cousins and belong to a group that also includes Ernest Wallace, Carlos Ortiz, and Singleton's husband, Thaddeus Singleton III.
Wallace and Ortiz are both currently being held on murder charges alongside Hernandez in relation to the death of Odin Lloyd. Wallace was also living at the home at the time of the murder and Ortiz had taken residency at the home in the past. While Hernandez never lived there, he did appear to spend occasional nights at the home, located not far from his mansion in Attleborough, Mass. police told the Associated Press.
Tanya Singleton was sent to jail after refusing to testify against Hernandez before the grand jury in the case that led to the former tight end being indicted on murder charges. Her husband was killed in June when the car he was driving went off a road in Farmington. Police ruled the death an accident, but he had a long criminal record, was currently facing charges on trafficking heroin and was a suspected drug dealer.
During a search at the home, police discovered a white SUV that is believed to be associated with a 2012 double homicide and 100 cartridges of .38-caliber ammunition. The .38-caliber gun used in the double homicide that led to the deaths of Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu was discovered this past June.
Police believe that evidence discovered in the home and links made to those who have lived or are currently living there could help to build both cases.
