Fatal Accident Has Link To Hernandez Probe

BOSTON - A fatal weekend car crash in Connecticut has been linked to a murder investigation surrounding former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.

Police say 33-year-old Thaddeus Singleton III of Bristol was killed when the car he was driving slammed into the Farmington Country Club early Sunday.

Singleton is married to Hernandez's cousin. Police say the car was registered to a man, reportedly Hernandez's uncle, whose home has been searched several times, by Massachusetts police investigating a 2012 double homicide linked to the former NFL star.

Police seized a vehicle from that home on Friday. The home was searched again on Tuesday.

The cause of the accident has not been determined. Police said a woman in the car was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. Her name has not been released.
