Four arrests were made in the Sean Taylor murder case Friday. That is a good thing, especially compared to the Darrent Williams case which is 11 months old and still unsolved in Denver. The police say they have at least one confession from the suspects, and potentially more to come. New information has come out, including the fact that two of the arrested men had ties to Taylor — one did household chores at the house, and the other had a relative dating Taylor’s sister. I still have a few issues here.
One of the main points the police department is making is that the suspects were strictly looking to rob Taylor, unaware Sean was even in the home. This is important because it separates the degree of murder for which they will be tried. Secondly, the police are still trying to figure out whether or not this incident was related to the break-in the previous week at Taylor’s home. It’s quite obvious that the suspects wouldn’t admit to either of the charges and make themselves look worse (no matter how dumb they are).
So if the information that was revealed late on Friday holds true, does that mean the people who blamed the death on Taylor’s sketchy past are wrong? It sure looks that way, though I won’t jump to any conclusions. Also, the four men are relatively young and do not have extensive, nor seriousÂ crimesÂ on theirÂ records.Â Connecting those dots, it seems quite possible that they were just there for money. I’m still left wondering though, who the heck left that knife behind?Â How are the two not related?
