By means of a random stroke of luck born of a car crash police were able to find the murder weapon in the double slaying of Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado.
The 38-caliber pistol that was found in a briefcase in the trunk of 19-year old Jailene Diaz-Ramos’ car is the same as that that killed Abreu and Furtado, according to ballistics tests. Abreu and Furtado were shot to death while in their car as they were leaving a south Boston nightclub where they had had a fight with Aaron Hernandez and his entourage.
Though direct connections between Diaz-Ramos and Aaron Hernandez have yet to be established, both are from Bristol, Connecticut, and according to Heavy.com she and Hernandez’s brother, DJ are Facebook friends.
When questioned Diaz-Ramos said that the gun belongs to a football friend named “Chicago.”
This development comes after it was discovered that a silver SUV with Rhode Island license plates that police believe may have been connected to the double-homicide was found at Aaron Hernandez’s uncle’s home in Bristol, Connecticut.
