Lawyers representing Aaron Hernandez in his two murder cases are continuing to challenge evidence seized from the former New England Patriots star’s home last June.
The victim was found unconscious early in the morning of May 23 outside Roggies on Chestnut Hill Avenue.
Boston police write in the June 28 affidavit there is probable cause to believe that Hernandez was driving a vehicle used in the shooting and “may have been the shooter.”
According to the warrant, police suspect Hernandez was driving a SUV that was involved in the murders of two men in the South End in July 2012.
Search warrants in the murder case against former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez reveal the breadth of the investigation, with authorities scouring through everything from his house to the contents of his team locker.
