Hernandez denied second request of bail

FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) There could be more legal trouble in the immediate future of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.

On Thursday morning, it was reported that Hernandez was being investigated as a possible suspect in a July 2012 double homicide.

Now, CNN.com is reporting that the Boston Police Department has located and impounded an SUV that they believe is tied to that case. According to CNN, authorities believe Hernandez was renting the SUV at the time of the killings.

According to the Boston Globe, here's what authorities believe happened on July 16, 2012, the night of the killings:

Investigators believe a fight broke out at Cure, a club in the South End, between two men and a group that included Hernandez.

The two men, Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado, friends who grew up in Cape Verde, left the club with three other men in a BMW sedan.

Abreu, who was driving, stopped at a traffic light on Shawmut Avenue, about to make a left onto Herald Street, when a silver or gray SUV with Rhode Island license plates pulled alongside the sedan. Someone from the SUV opened fire, killing Abreu, 29, and Furtado, 28.

Police had been unable to track down the mysterious SUV until Thursday.

Authorities believe the 2012 killings and the recent death of Odin Lloyd could be related. The working theory is that Lloyd -- the man whom Hernandez is charged with killing -- might have had information about Hernandez's role in the double slaying.
