Three Detained in Taylor Investigation

Postby Fios » Fri Nov 30, 2007 12:26 pm

A developing story:

Miami-Dade detectives have detained at least three people in Lee County for questioning in the death of Washington Redskins football star Sean Taylor.

Investigators believe the young men learned of Taylor's house through someone who unwittingly set up the burglary by bragging about the football star's wealth.

The suspects include a teenager and two men in their 20s who hail from the Fort Myers area.

The former University of Miami star was not supposed to be home. While the Redskins played in Tampa, he had come home to get a second medical opinion on his injured knee.

Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents and Miami-Dade homicide detectives picked up the young men Friday morning.

Taylor was shot early Monday by an intruder who surprised him in the bedroom of his Palmetto Bay home. He wielded a machete as he tried to protect his fiancee, Jackie Garcia, and their 18-month-old baby girl. The two were hiding under the covers as Taylor was shot. One bullet pierced the wall. The other struck Taylor in the groin, severing his femoral artery and causing massive blood loss. He died later at Jackson Memorial Hospital.

I'll hold reservation until there is some confirmation of having the correct individuals in custody.

Dag, if it's true, you know they're gonna snitch quick. I'd love for this to be over with ya know, some kind of closure for ST and his family. Also, if it was a botched burglary attempt, I hope the media will correct there assumptions.

"bragging about the football star's wealth"

Granted ST had far more than I, but by NFL standards he was paid modestly. Wasn't he original contract 7 year/$18 mil. Let's face it, his next signing bonus would have been that much. It's like Portis said in an article, NFL players don't keep money in their house. Sad, just sad

I hope this is true.

If it is, these guys will turn on each other faster than Vicks buddys did!

I really hope we can see justice done.

The sentence should be 15 minutes locked in the 'Skins locker room with Mike Sellers, followed by 15 years as their tackling dummies.

I'm thinking 21 minutes and 21 years would be more appropriate.

True enough, but that's still presupposing that they survive the time with Sellers. :shock:
