SPRINGFIELD, MA (WFSB) -

Massachusetts police have recovered a gun that may have been used during a double murder in Boston last year - a case that Aaron Hernandez may be connected to.

According to our affiliates WSHM in Springfield and WBZ in Boston, a gun was recovered from a car after a car accident in Springfield in June.

The gun was discovered by police after the driver of the car, 19-year-old Jailene Diaz-Ramos of Bristol, CT, was involved in a crash on Interstate 91.

Police took inventory of the Diaz-Ramos car before towing it when they discovered the gun, a .38 caliber Smith and Wesson revolver.

Police sources told WBZ the gun was sent for ballistic testing that linked it to a July 2012 double homicide outside a South Boston bar.

Investigators believe Hernandez may have been connected to that double murder, but he has not been charged in the case.

Diaz-Ramos has been charged with illegal possession of a firearm after the gun was discovered in her car. She has been released on bond. 

Diaz-Ramos told police she gave a ride to a friend name "Chicago" and his buddies, that they were football players and she believes they put the gun in the car.

Hernandez remains behind bars, held without bail in connection to the murder of Odin Lloyd. Police have not located the murder weapon in that case.
