Tabitha Perry, a Bristol, Mass. resident with ties to accused murderer and former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez, died on Monday.
Perry’s death is being investigated but is not considered suspicious.
Officials found Perry at a home in Southington, where she was visiting a friend, unconscious and not breathing.
Police told the Hartford Courant that the state medical examiner’s office is waiting for results of toxicology testing before ruling on a cause of death.
Perry was previously injured in a car accident on June 30 that killed Thaddeus Singleton III, the driver. Singleton had a child with Perry but was married to Tanya Singleton, a cousin of Hernandez.
Hernandez is in jail awaiting trial for murdering two men in a drive-by shooting.
Tanya Singleton faces an accessory charge in the case.
