Richard Sharpstein Reacts To The Confessions
Richard Sharpstein, Taylor's family friend and lawyer, was trying to escape from the tragedy at the Miami Heat game. I just got off the phone with him.
He said that the word he received from police is that they were waiting to get multiple confessions before going forward on an announcement.
"They were looking for two or three confessions," Sharpstein said. "I don't know whether they got them, but it's horrific, horrible. And the fact that some family may have led them there -unwittingly or otherwise - it's terrifying."
Sharpstein said Sean's step sister stayed at this house from time to time and "had access to the house." Sharpstein said the sister left stuff in the bedroom and when Sean returned to the house this weekend he believed she had thrown a party there over Thanksgiving. "Whether these kids (the suspects) were there or
not, I don't know, but we're assuming one or more of them were."
"People always said Sean's life led him to this, saying he was violent," Sharpstein said. "But if anything here his openness and generosity led to this crime, which is shocking and horrific. I said all along it was a burglary and it was planned. There are 17, 19, 21-year old pathetic criminal wannabes and they carry a gun like every other dime a dozen jerk in the streets, and they happen to come upon someone they don't expect to be there and they fire the gun and run like cowards.
"This is a shame, but it's not over and this will be of no solace to the family. If anything it will only make it harder to swallow."
