Another Uncle of Aaron Hernandez Dies

hernandez-2BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — The brother of a Bristol, Conn., man who was killed in a moped crash says he was the uncle of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.

Bristol police identified the victim of the early Saturday morning crash as Robert Valentine.

In an interview with The Boston Globe, Patrick Valentine said his brother also was a brother of Terri Hernandez, Aaron Hernandez’s mother.

It was the second recent fatal accident involving a Hernandez relative. Thaddeus Singleton III of Bristol was killed when the car he was driving slammed into a country club on June 30. He was married to Hernandez’s cousin.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder in the death of Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player whose body was found June 17 about a mile from Hernandez’s home in North Attleborough, Mass.
