    NBC Connecticut has learned there is a connection between a fatal car crash in Farmington this weekend and the uncle of former New England Patriots tight end and Bristol native Aaron Hernandez.

    The car, driven by Thaddeus L. Singleton III, 33, of Bristol, is registered to Andres Valderamma, the uncle of the former Patriots star.

    Singleton is married to Valderamma’s daughter and the couple lived with him on Lake Avenue in Bristol.

    Investigators spent at least two days last week collecting evidence and towing a silver SUV away from the residence.

    Law Enforcement sources confirmed that the search warrants executed at the Lake Avenue home are in connection to the investigation of the murder of Odin Lloyd in North Attleboro, Massachusetts last month and a 2012 double murder outside a Boston nightclub.

    Singleton died after crashing into the Farmington Country Club at 806 Farmington Avenue around 3:30 a.m. Sunday morning.

    A friend of Singleton's, 27-year-old Tabitha Perry, was in the passenger seat and is recovering in the hospital, authorities said.

    Perry’s mother said her daughter and Singleton have been friends for around eight years.

    Police are continuing to investigate the cause of the Farmington crash.
