A gun found during a routine traffic accident investigation two months ago has been linked to a 2012 double homicide that police are investigating in connection with NFL football player Aaron Hernandez.  After a June 21 four-vehicle crash on Interstate 91 in Springfield, Massachusetts, Jailene Diaz-Ramos, 19, was taken to a hospital. During a search of her vehicle, which is routine when a car is towed, Massachusetts State Police found a firearm and several rounds of ammunition, according to the incident report.  The gun’s ballistics match the markings on the bullets found after two men were killed outside a Boston bar last year, according to police.  A grand jury is currently hearing details on the double homicide.  Diaz-Ramos was not licensed to carry the weapon and was charged with possession of a firearm without a license, possession of ammunition without a license and improper storage of a firearm.  When asked, the teenager told police the .38-caliber weapon belonged to her boyfriend and that “he was the last one to use the car to visit a football player,” according to an anonymous source.  Hernandez, a former New England patriot tight end, is being investigated in connection with the double killing.  In June, law enforcement sources said they believe Hernandez, 23, rented a silver SUV with Rhode Island registration that was linked to the scene of the double homicide. Police searched for the vehicle for almost a year before locating it.  Separately, Hernandez is accused with the killing of his friend Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old semipro football player.  He has pled not guilty.
