Here’s a roundup of the latest on the situation surrounding Bills running back LeSean McCoy, courtesy of ESPN.com’s Mike Rodak (all links to go Twitter):
Tanya Mitchell Graham, the attorney for Delicia Cordon, told WRNB radio on Thursday that neither she nor her client has “said directly” that McCoy was involved in the home invasion (link). “That could be factual [that McCoy was in Miami and not involved],” Graham said in the interview, which took place before records of Cordon’s comments to police were revealed. “The only thing I’ve said are factual things, for instance furniture was being moved on June 1. Mr. McCoy was not in Atlanta then. An eviction was filed on his behalf. He was not in Atlanta. Security cameras were changed at his residence. He was not in Atlanta then. So the fact that he was not in Atlanta doesn’t mean anything, really. But I have not – neither has my client – said directly that he was involved. I believe that the criminal investigation will play out and we will find out who the perpetrator or any accessories are.”
- Graham tells Rodak that there has been “no backtracking” of her client’s story. Graham says her client “suspects” McCoy had “something to do with it,” though Cordon is not directly blaming McCoy without further evidence (link).
Graham says the piece of jewelry that was stolen from Cordon was given to her as a gift in 2016 and was not loaned by a jeweler, contradictory to what McCoy told police in 2017 (link).
- It has been reported that McCoy was in the process of trying to evict Cordon from the home, but Graham disputes that version of events (link). Graham said McCoy has “never asked [Cordon] to leave. … She does not have a text message, a phone or an email or a phone record that can show my client that he asked her to relocate.” McCoy took Cordon to court this year to have her removed from the property, so this could be a matter of semantics.
Graham says neither her nor Cordon knew that Cordon’s friend would post the graphic hospital photo or make accusations against McCoy on Instagram (link).
