Aaron Hernandez was hit with two new civil wrongful death lawsuits in Suffolk Superior Court in Boston on Wednesday by families of Daniel DeAbreu and Safiro Furtado, the two men murdered in Boston while they sat in their car on July 16, 2012.

A Suffolk County grand jury is investigating Hernandez for involvement in the double murder but have not brought any charges yet. Never the less, the families have chosen to bring forth the two $6 million lawsuits at this time.
The investigation remains very active, and court records indicate investigators believe Hernandez was involved in the killings.
An attorney for the family's lawsuit, William Kennedy, was unavailable for comment Wednesday night, according to Travis Andersen of the Boston Globe.
Hernandez is currently being held without bail for the murder of Odin L. Lloyd of Dorchester last June.
Lloyd's family has also previously brought a civil wrongful death lawsuit in Bristol County against Hernandez.
Aaron Hernandez is also being sued in a Florida civil case brought by Alexander Bradley, a former Hernandez associate, claims Hernandez shot him in the eye last February. Travis Andersen reports in the Boston Globe article:
“On Tuesday, lawyers for Bradley and Hernandez requested that the Florida suit be placed on hold for at least 120 days since both men are currently incarcerated.
At this juncture, there would seem to be no reason to spend time and resources of the Court when no constructive progress can be made based upon the unavailability of both parties,” the attorneys said in a joint legal filing.
Bradley was arrested earlier this month in Hartford after he allegedly sprayed a night club with gunfire in retaliation for being shot in the leg.”
Legal problems for Aaron Hernandez continue to mount now with four civil lawsuits plus the investigations in two separate murder cases. The latest fight at the Bristol County House of Correction in Dartmouth, MA reported in the news yesterday is just a minor issue at this case.
