Boston police believe Aaron Hernandez, the former New England Patriots tight end already in custody and charged in the murder of semi-professional football player and friend Odin Lloyd, may have pulled the trigger in an unsolved 2012 double homicide.

Police requested permission to search and analyze a seized silver SUV at the home of Hernandez's uncle in Bristol, Conn. They believe it was used in the July 16, 2012, drive-by shooting of Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado.

According to a search warrant affidavit unsealed Thursday, there is "probable cause to believe that Aaron Hernandez was operating the suspect vehicle used in the shooting homicides of Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado, and may have been the shooter," reports the Boston Globe.

Hernandez has not been charged with the double murder which occurred in Boston's South End, but it raises the possibility that he may have played football games after committing a murder.

Days after Hernandez was linked to Lloyd's death, police received a tip linking him to Lloyd's killing and the unsolved 2012 shootings.

Hernandez, 24, pleaded not guilty last year to murder and weapons-related charges and is being held in Bristol County Jail while awaiting trial.
