Thaddeus Singleton III, of Bristol Connecticut, was considered a person on interest in the Aaron Hernandez murder investigation and investigators planned to interview him prior to his death in a car accident this past Sunday.
As reported by the Harford Courant:
Multiple law enforcement sources said Thaddeus Singleton III, 33, was associated with Hernandez and of interest to investigators. Singleton was killed when the car he was driving flew off the road, split a pole in half and careened into Farmington Country Club. Police said the car was registered to Aaron Hernandez’s uncle, who is Singleton’s father-in-law.
His death was ruled an accident, and it is unclear whether he knew of investigators’ interest in his connection to the former New England Patriot star tight end, a Bristol native.
Singleton had been previously convicted on a number of drug charges and sources say investigators were interested in talking to him due to the similarities between the shooting of Alexander Bradley, who Hernandez allegedly shot in the eye, and murder of Odin Lloyd.
