It’s never a good thing to be the subject of a grand jury investigation. It’s much worse to be the subject of two of them.
Former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, who already has been indicted by a Bristol County grand jury for the June 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd, continues to be the focal point of a Suffolk County grand jury investigating the July 2012 murders of Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu.
Via the Associated Press, a pair of men connected to Hernandez have been ordered to testify before the grand jury.
Alexander Bradley, who has sued Hernandez in Florida for a February 2013 shooting, has failed to appear at a hearing regarding the question of whether he should testify, prompting a judge to issue an arrest warrant. Bradley testified earlier this year before the grand jury that was investigating Lloyd’s death.
The judge also ordered John Alcorn to appear Thursday before the grand jury. Per the AP, Alcorn is related to Thaddeus Singleton III, the late husband of Hernadez’s cousin, Tanya. Thaddeus died in a car accident in June, and Tanya continues to be held without bail after refusing to testify in the grand jury that was investigating Lloyd’s death.
Published reports have indicated that the Suffolk County grand jury is exploring whether Hernandez killed Furtado and Abreu. The judge’s orders regarding Bradley and Alcorn make the connection as clear as it could be.
