Investigators in the Aaron Hernandez murder case were prepared to interview a Bristol man who was killed early Sunday when he crashed a car registered to his father-in-law, the former New England Patriot tight end’s uncle.
Multiple law enforcement sources said Massachusetts investigators were interested in speaking with Thaddeus Singleton III, 33, because he was associated with Hernandez.
Singleton, who records show has served time in state prisons on various drug-related convictions dating to the mid-1990s, was killed when the car he was driving shot 100 through the air and hit the Farmington Country Club 6 feet off the ground.
The Nissan Maxima was registered to Andres Valderrama, Hernandez’s uncle, law enforcement sources said. Police said that in the course of their investigation into the crash they learned that Singleton was married to Tanya Valderrama of 114 Lake Ave. in Bristol. Tanya Valderrama is Hernandez’s cousin.
