It's past a day late to point out how bad Aaron Hernandez's legal situation is after being charged with murder Wednesday. Now the Fox affiliate in Boston is reporting that Hernandez is being investigated in connection to a double murder in Boston last year.
The case concerning the death of Odin Lloyd is compelling enough to dominate the news cycle. The double homicide leaving the victims dead in a vehicle sways things completely in one direction. There's talk of Hernandez being part of the gang in Bristol, Conn., as the tabloids continue to foam at the mouth over this story.
Turns out, city data shows Bristol averaged 1.2 murders a year between 1999 and 2011. It's not a particularly violent city of 60,000-plus, despite the narrative of gang affliation. But Hernandez, at this point, is suspected to be a dangerous man himself.
