A Connecticut house may hold important clues in the murder case of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez

The house, which is located at 114 Lake Avenue and is owned by Hernandez's uncle, "was home to many people close to him (Hernandez) who have since come under intense police scrutiny," per the Associated Press

Two of the men implicated and charged in relation to the June 17 slaying of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz, reportedly lived in the house at one point in time. 

Court filings reveal both Wallace and Ortiz returned to the house after Lloyd was found dead. 

The house's owner is Andres "Tito" Valderamma. His late wife, Ruth, is the sister of Hernandez's father Dennis. Valderamma lives in the house with his daughter Tanya, who "was indicted on a criminal contempt charge after prosecutors say she refused to testify before the grand jury hearing evidence in the case that led to a murder indictment against Hernandez," according to the report. 

Another daughter plus Jennifer "Gina" Thebarge live in the house together with their families. 

Authorities were able to seize 100 cartridges of .38-caliber ammunition and the SUV which have ties to a July 2012 shooting that saw two men getting killed near a Boston nightclub. 

Meanwhile, Alexander Bradley, the man who is suing Hernandez for allegedly shooting him in the face inside a limo after they argued in a Miami strip club, says there is no reason to delay his case, per CNN

Hernandez made a request to delay it until his murder charges in Massachusetts are resolved. Bradley isn't buying, as his camp is claiming the two incidents are unrelated. 

 

Furthermore, his attorneys say "delaying the case, for what could be years, would be extremely prejudicial to Mr. Bradley in terms of seeking compensation for the very severe injuries he suffered as a result of being shot in the eye."
