The Hartford Courant is reporting that a 49 year-old CT man, Robert Valentine, the uncle of Aaron Hernandez, was killed in a moped accident over the weekend.

The victim was the brother of Hernandez's mother, Terri Hernandez. The newspaper reports that Mr. Valentine, who was not wearing a helmet, struck the curbing of the road, lost control and was thrown from the moped.

This is yet another tragic event for former Patriot's star Aaron Hernandez. Your thoughts?
