Four Men Arrested in the Sean Taylor Murder Case

Miami-Dade County Police Director Robert Parker talks to reporters during a news conference in Miami, Friday, Nov. 30, 2007. Four suspects, Venjah K. Hunte, 20; Eric Rivera Jr., 17; Jason Scott Mitchell, 17; and Charles Kendrick Lee Wardlow, 18, were arrested Friday in connection with the shooting death of Washington Redskins football player Sean Taylor.

Four people have been arrested in connection with the Sean Taylor death on Tuesday, and while charges against the four men have yet to be filed, it looks like they could be in some serious trouble. The four men are Venjah K. Hunte, 20; Eric Rivera Jr., 17; Jason Scott Mitchell, 17; and Charles Kendrick Lee Wardlow, 18. They were arrested on Friday about 100 miles from Miami. They will be booked into the Lee County Jail and then be returned to Miami.

“They were certainly not looking to go there and kill anyone,” police director Robert Parker said. Reports say that there has already been more than one confession in the case. investigators believe the men knew about Taylor being rich through someone who was bragging about Taylor’s fortune. “We’re looking into whether or not one or more of the individuals had been at the residence before,” Parker said.

Obviously if these men have confessed, it will be a bitter start to what is sure to be a hot-button case for the four men. From the word go the police felt that Taylor had nothing to do with being murdered, and that it was a “random act.” It looks as if that theory is close to being true, as it seems like Taylor did not know these men or as to why they would have been in his home at the time of the shooting.
