Police are currently investigating the death of a Connecticut woman with ties to former Patriots tight end and now accused murderer, Aaron Hernandez.
According to reports from the Hartford Courant, 27-year-old Tabitha Perry was visiting a friend in Southington, Conn., Monday night when police responded to a 911 call inside the house. Police found Perry unconscious and not breathing when they arrived. Toxicology results are currently pending. As of now, foul play is not suspected.
Interestingly enough, Perry, who lived in Hernandez’s hometown of Bristol, survived a car accident that killed another Hernandez associate, Thaddeus Singleton III, back in June. Police say Singleton and Perry had a child together. Singleton was also said to be married to Hernandez’s cousin, Tanya Singleton, who is facing an accessory charge in the June shooting death of Odin Lloyd.
Singleton is believed to have introduced Hernandez to Carlos Ortiz and Ernest Wallace, both of whom were with Hernandez the night of the murder.
Perry had been interviewed by Massachusetts law enforcement about the death of Lloyd. She is the third associate with connections to Hernandez to have passed away within in the last six months. An uncle of Hernandez died in a moped crash in August and Singleton died in a car crash in June. Both have been ruled accidents by police.
On a side note, Hernandez is also being sued by the family of Odin Lloyd. The family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the former star claiming Hernandez “maliciously, willfully, wantonly, recklessly or by gross negligence caused Odin Lloyd to suffer personal injuries that directly resulted in his death.” Hernadez has pleaded not guilty to the first-degree murder Lloyd.
