The uncle of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez died in an accident Saturday, according to the Hartford Courant.
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.
