Even as former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was denied an appeal for bail Thursday, it was revealed that he is also being investigated for his possible connection to a 2012 double homicide in Boston.
Hernandez, 23, was charged with first-degree murder along with five other weapons charges Wednesday in connection with the shooting death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd.
In Fall River Superior Court Thursday, Massachusetts Superior Court Judge Renee P. Dupuis denied Hernandez's appeal to be released on bail.
It was also reported Thursday that Hernandez is being investigated for a possible connection to a 2012 double homicide in Boston. Investigators believe Lloyd may have had information about Hernandez's role in the 2012 slayings, which could be at the heart of Hernandez's motive for killing Lloyd, according to the Boston Globe.
Also, Connecticut officials confirmed Thursday the arrest of Carlos A. Ortiz of Bristol, where Hernandez grew up, in connection with the murder of Lloyd.
