Jailene Diaz-Ramos of Bristol, Connecticut was involved in an car accident June 21st in Springfield, Massachusetts and taken to a local hospital. Police inventoried her car and found a Smith and Wesson .38 in a black briefcase in the trunk of her car.
The gun was sent for testing and state police confirmed it was the weapon used in the killing of two men outside a Boston bar in 2012. That murder has been linked to former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.
Diaz-Ramos told police the gun belonged to a friend she referred to as "Chicago." She told police she drove "Chicago" and his friends to work, and that they are football players- for whom and for what level of football wasn't disclosed. She also said that the people she drove to work wanted to leave the briefcase in the trunk so they wouldn't have to bring it into work.
Diaz-Ramos was arraigned in Springfield district court for illegal possession of a gun and ammunition and released on $1,000 bail.
