Investigators believe that the whole messy situation started with a fight at a club called Cure between Abreu, Furtado and a group of men including Hernandez. The two left the club with three other men in the early morning hours of July 16, 2012. Abreu was driving, and while he was stopped at a traffic light, an SUV pulled up next to their sedan and opened fire. Abreu and Furtado were killed. The slayings were since left unresolved. Investigators heard Hernandez was at the club the night of the murders, but was not a suspect at the time.
