3 Detained In Sean Taylor Slaying

Police have detained at least three people in the Fort Myers area for questioning in the death of Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor. Investigators believe the suspects learned of Taylor's house through someone who unwittingly set up the burglary by bragging about his wealth. The suspects include two teenagers and a man in his 20s, all from the Fort Myers area. Richard Sharpstein, a former Taylor lawyer and family friend, confirmed the law enforcement report. "It's my understanding that three individuals are in custody. A house is being searched," Sharpstein said, without disclosing who had given him the information. He repeated previous statements that the burglary did not appear to be random and that the 24-year-old's house had been targeted.
