This marks the second time that a member of Hernandez's family has died in a recent accident.

Hernandez is accused of murdering Odin Lloyd and is in jail without bail after being arrested and charged with first-degree murder.

According to the report, Robert J. Valentine died of a head injury following a moped crash where he hit a curb and wasn't wearing a helmet.

Valentine was the brother of Terri Hernandez, Aaron Hernandez's mother.

Law enforcement officials continue to investigate Aaron Hernandez's alleged involvement in other unsolved homicides.
