Fatal accident has link to Hernandez case

Posted: Updated:

BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) -- A fatal weekend car accident in Connecticut has been linked to a murder investigation surrounding former Patriot's 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 morning.

Singleton is married to Hernandez's cousin, and police say the car involved was registered to Hernandez's uncle. Their 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 in the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Her name has not been released.
