Now, a Boston FOX affiliate is saying that police are investigating a possible connection to Hernandez in another murder that happened back in July of 2012.

From MyFoxBoston.com:

FOX 25 has learned exclusively that investigators are looking into Aaron Hernandez as a possible suspect in a double murder that happened on July 16, 2012 in downtown Boston.
 
According to the Boston Police blog from that date, officers responded to the intersection of Shawmut Avenue and Herald Street just after 2 a.m. When they arrived, they found three people had been shot, two fatally, as they sat in a car at a traffic light.
 
The men were identified as Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu. The FOX 25 source said the men, who worked at a cleaning company in Dorchester, had just left a bar in the area.
 
Furtado and Abreu were sitting in the front seat of the vehicle when witnesses said the occupants of a gray or silver SUV with Rhode Island plates opened fire on it. The surviving victim was in the back seat. Investigators believed two others in the car fled the scene.
 
The source said that investigators were looking into Aaron Hernandez's connection to the killing.

If Hernandez actually pulled the trigger in these murders as well as the Lloyd killing, he would actually fit the definition of a serial killer. This investigation is still in its infancy, so we probably won't find out anything definitive for a while, but this certainly doesn't look good for Hernandez... much like everything else we've seen lately.

There's a stat floating around the internet that says there have been 29 arrests of NFL players this offseason. That's ridiculous.

And yet the NFL continues to be immune to any type of public perception that casts a bad light on the sport.  It's almost like the public expects football players to get into trouble in the off season

Is there any other sport that sees more damage to their image then the NFL when their off season rolls around?  Goodell and company have to cringe at the amount of time the elapses between the Super Bowl and when training camp comes around.
