It looks like the authorities are getting closer to nailing a double murder that went down in Boston last year, to former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.
According to the Boston Globe, prosecutors have started to make their case to a grand jury that Hernandez was the person who killed two men in last year’s double murder in Boston.
“The case against Hernandez appears to be strengthening,” one of the officials said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss the case publicly.
The proceedings are conducted behind closed doors so details of the case against Hernandez are unknown. But the very fact that the case has gone to a grand jury indicates that the investigation of the killing of two Cape Verdean immigrants is now more narrowly focused on Hernandez. Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu were shot early on July 16, 2012, in the South End when someone in a sport utility vehicle with Rhode Island license plates pulled up next to their car and began firing.
Hernandez continues to wait in jail for his day in court without bail after allegedly killing Odin Lloyd this summer.
