The Shady McCoy physical abuse story keeps getting curiouser and curiouser!
The woman who called 911 after being beaten and robbed of jewelry in a Georgia home invasion told police she believed her ex-boyfriend, thought to be ex-Eagles running back McCoy, “set [her] up” for the attack.
Police in Milton, Georgia, redacted the woman’s name from audio released yesterday of her conversation with an emergency dispatcher. However, attorneys for McCoy’s former girlfriend, Delicia Cordon, have previously identified her as the victim of the home invasion.
The 911 caller initially told the dispatcher she believed the attack had “something to do with my ex-boyfriend.” She later told the dispatcher the lone intruder left through the front of the house on what she believed was advice from McCoy.
“I’m telling you, I’m telling you, that guy is [redacted],” the caller said in the 911 audio. “He must have known the camera system. LeSean must have told him. There’s no camera in the front.”
When police arrived at the scene, the caller told the dispatcher she did not want to leave the home because she was afraid McCoy was watching on cameras.
“My boyfriend, who I feel like did this, who set me up, is going to see us on the cameras outside,” she said. “We’re breaking up, and he wants all his jewelry back.”
Attorneys for Cordon said in a statement Tuesday that she was struck in the head with a firearm during the home invasion and also suffered injuries to her wrist during an attempt by the suspect to remove her jewelry. In the call, the woman tells the 911 dispatcher that she is bleeding and her “face is demolished.”
from Cordon and saying she could be robbed because the jewelry was expensive.
McCoy, who has been training in Miami this summer, denied accusations made on social media Tuesday by a friend of the victim that he was responsible for Cordon’s injuries, as well as allegations that he beat his son and his dog and used “illegal steroids.” McCoy said he has not had direct contact with the victim in months.
The investigations by police and the league come as the Bills prepare to report to training camp July 25 at St. John Fisher College in Pittsford, New York.
The NFL’s personal conduct policy could allow the league to place McCoy on the commissioner’s exempt list while he is being investigated by the league and police. That designation would prevent McCoy from practicing or playing in any games. The exempt list requires either a player to have been formally charged with a crime of violence, including “having engaged in other conduct that poses a genuine danger to the safety or well-being of another person,” or for the league to suspect a violation but still be investigating.
