It's not the Odin Lloyd murder weapon, but police found the gun used in a Boston double murder that has allegedly been linked to Aaron Hernandez.

According to CBS 3 in Springfield, the .38-caliber Smith and Wesson revolver was found in the trunk of a car involved in a crash on Interstate 91 on June 21.

The car belongs to Jailene Diaz-Ramos, according to the report, a Bristol, Conn. native.

Two weeks after the gun was sent for ballistics testing, Mass. State Police confirmed it was the weapon used to kill two men in Boston in the summer of 2012.

Police reportedly began to look into Hernandez's involvement in the double murder following Odin Lloyd's death in June.

Diaz-Ramos was arraigned in Springfield district court for illegal possession of a gun and ammunition and was released on $1000 bail.

From CBS 3 in Springfield:
According to court documents, 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.

She went on to say they wanted to leave the black briefcase in the trunk so they wouldn't have to bring it into work.

Police are now continuing to investigate Hernandez's possible connection to those murders.
