Evidence that Aaron Hernandez, the former New England Patriots star tight end, was involved in a Boston double murder in 2012 "appears to be strengthening," sources told the Boston Globe.

Prosecutors have started to present that evidence to the Suffolk County grand jury this week, the Globe reported, quoting law enforcement authorities in a story appearing in online on Wednesday.

Hernandez remained in the Bristol County House of Corrections Wednesday in connection with the June 17 death of Odin Lloyd, according to the Globe. He has pleaded not guilty in Lloyd's shooting death.

Authorities said investigators believe Hernandez drove Lloyd to an industrial park in North Attleborough, Mass., then shot him because he was worried Lloyd had information about an alleged link between Hernandez and the 2012 double homicide and might talk.

Grand jury proceedings are closed and details of the 2012 case against Hernandez are unknown, the Globe reported. Two immigrants, Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu, were shot early on July 16, 2012, in south Boston when someone in a sport utility vehicle with Rhode Island license plates pulled up next to their car and began firing, the Globe reported.

WHDH-TV reported that authorities found the vehicle suspected in the Furtado and Abreu shooting in larte June at Hernandez's uncle's home in Bristol, Conn., while investigating the Lloyd shooting. The vehicle was towed back to Boston to be processed by local police, WHDH reported.

Hernandez was scheduled to appear in court for a probable cause hearing in the Lloyd case on Wednesday, according to ESPN Boston.

ESPN reported that a judge unsealed three Connecticut search warrants from the Lloyd investigation used to search Hernandez's uncle's home in Bristol, an apartment and a rental car.  Police said the car was used by Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz the day after Lloyd's shooting.

Wallace and Ortiz are in jail, accused as accomplices to Lloyd's death, ESPN reported.
Authorities found at the home correction department documents linked to Ortiz and Wallace, a plastic gun box, and two boxes of .38-caliber ammunition, according to ESPN.
