A Bristol woman who survived the crash that killed one of former NFL player Aaron Hernandez’s family members was found dead in Southington early Monday morning.
Tabitha Perry, 27, was in the crash in Farmington in July that killed Thaddeus L. Singleton III, 33, of Bristol.
Singleton was married to Hernandez’s cousin and lived with Hernandez’s uncle, Andres Valderamma, in Bristol, according to authorities.
The car that Perry and Singleton were in during the Farmington crash was also registered in Valderamma’s name.
Police previously identified Perry as one of Singleton’s friends and her mother said the two had been friends for around eight years.
Southington police found Perry just before 3 a.m. on Monday after receiving a 911 medical call at 25 Darling Street reporting that a woman was unconscious and not breathing.
Perry had been visiting a friend when she was found, according to police.
An ambulance transported her from the scene to the Hospital of Central Connecticut, Bradley campus, where she was pronounced dead.
Police said they found no suspicious circumstances and detectives are waiting on autopsy results and a toxicology report.
Hernandez, a Bristol native and former New England Patriot, has been indicted in the killing of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old Massachusetts man who was dating the sister of Hernandez's girlfriend.
Hernandez has pleaded not guilty.
