CHEROKEE COUNTY, Ga. - Milton Police are still investigating the home invasion, robbery, and assault of two women who were inside the home of NFL running back LeSean McCoy early Tuesday morning.
No one would come to the door to speak to FOX 5 News about the crime Wednesday, although several people did enter the home through garage doors. Several people left bouquets of flowers at the front porch of the home on Hickory Pass.
Attorney Tanya Mitchell Graham declined FOX 5's request for an interview, but in a statement issued hours after the 3 a.m. attack, she identified McCoy's estranged girlfriend, Delicia Cordon, as the victim of the assault. She said her client was hit several times in the face with a firearm by a male assailant who entered the home with no signs of forced entry. She said the assailant demanded specific items of jewelry that have been previously gifted to Miss Cordon by Mr. McCoy. The attorney said after Miss Cordon refused to return her jewelry gifts to Mr. McCoy, he would often suggest to Miss Cordon that she could be robbed because the jewelry was expensive.
On Instagram, McCoy responded to claims on social media that he was somehow connected to the crime calling those allegations "totally baseless and completely false." NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told FOX 5 Portia Bruner "We are reviewing the matter."
Fulton County Magistrate Court records show Atlanta attorney Jacoby Hudson filed eviction proceedings on McCoy's behalf in July 2017. Cordon's attorney claims Cordon was allowed to remain in the home with her two children.
McCoy has hired high-profile Atlanta defense attorney Don Samuel, although no charges have been filed against the Buffalo Bills running back. McCoy is reportedly flying back to Atlanta from Miami where he was involved in official team activities to meet with his new attorney. Neither Samuel nor Cordon's attorney would comment on camera about the ongoing police investigation.
