NFL Almanac – July 2

Law & Disorder

New England – A member of former Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez‘s extended family died in an auto accident on Sunday. Thaddeus Singleton III was killed when the car he was driving left the road in Connecticut, split a utility pole and bounced into Farmington Country Club. He was the son-in-law of Hernandez’s uncle and was driving a car owned by the uncle. Police have ruled the death accidental. Police had been seeking to question Singleton to see what he may know about the murder of Odin Lloyd. He’s previously been convicted of multiple drug charges. It’s unknown whether Singleton knew the police were interested in speaking to him at the time of the accident.

Also on Tuesday, the man that has filed a civil lawsuit against Hernandez in Florida for shooting him in the eye was served with a subpoena to appear before a grand jury in Massachusetts investigating the Lloyd murder.

The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that a police report from 2007 indicates Hernandez was involved in a previously unknown incident before he was even officially enrolled at the University of Florida. The report alleged that Hernandez punched an employee of a Gainesville restaurant, bursting his eardrum. Hernandez was 17 years old at the time and was not arrested for the incident. Also, former Florida QB Tim Tebow witnessed the scene according to The Orlando Sentinel, and tried to break up the fight.

And, the North Attleboro Police and the Massachusetts State Police detectives have asked again for the public’s help in locating the broken driver’s side rearview mirror of a silver/grey 2013 Nissan Altima.
