“The video of Ray Rice punching his fiancee inside a casino elevator was sent to NFL headquarters to the attention of league security chief Jeffrey Miller in April, a law enforcement official says,” reports the Associated Press.
The story reports: “The NFL has repeatedly said no one with the league saw the violent images until TMZ Sports released the video earlier this month. Miller said [yesterday, Thursday, Sept. 25, 2014] through an NFL spokesman that he never received the video.
“The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to release details of the case, said he doesn’t know if Miller ever saw the DVD or opened the package. His only communication with the NFL was a 12-second voicemail on April 9 from league offices confirming receipt of the package, in which a woman says, ‘You’re right. It’s terrible.’ “
The AP quotes the law enforcement official telling the news organization: “No one from the NFL ever asked me for the inside-elevator video. I mailed it anonymously to Jeff Miller because he’s their head of security. I attached a note saying: ‘Ray Rice elevator video. You have to see it. It’s terrible.’ I provided a number for a disposable cellphone and asked for confirmation that it was received. I knew there was a possibility Mr. Miller may not get the video, but I hoped it would land in the right hands.”
