Police: Gun found in woman's car linked to double murder, Aaron Hernandez probe

Tuesday, August 20, 2013 - 7:23am

A gun found during a June traffic accident investigation has been linked to a 2012 murder that police are investigating in connection with Aaron Hernandez, law enforcement sources said Tuesday.

Following a four-vehicle crash, Jailene Diaz-Ramos, 19, of Bristol, Connecticut, was taken to a hospital, and during a search of her vehicle -- which is customary when a car is towed from a crash scene -- Massachusetts State Police found a firearm and several rounds of ammunition, according to the incident report.

Diaz-Ramos was not licensed to carry the weapon and was charged with possession of a firearm without a license, possession of ammunition without a license and improper storage of a firearm, the report said.

The gun has been linked to a double murder outside a Boston bar, and the former New England Patriot is being in investigated in connection with the crime, law enforcement sources said.

Diaz-Ramos' connection to Hernandez is unclear, police say.

Separately, Hernandez has been charged with Odin Lloyd's murder in Massachusetts last June and has pleaded not guilty.
