This family has been through a lot.
Aaron Hernandez is busy writing letters in jail, but outside, life goes on.
The former NFLer’s uncle Robert Valentine was out riding his moped in Connecticut at 1a.m. on Saturday morning when he crashed into a curb and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The cause of death was a head injury because he allegedly was not wearing a helmet.
Valentine was the brother of Aaron’s mom Terri Hernandez.
You may also remember that Aaron’s cousin-by-marriage was also recently killed in an accident back on June 30.
A loss of life is tragic, and we’re sure this will only increase the load on the accused murderer's already heavy heart.
