Rest in Peace, Sean Taylor

Washington Redskin safety Sean Taylor died this morning from a gunshot wound he received from an intruder early Monday morning. Taylor was a talented young player who by all accounts had made very positive changes in his life of late. My thoughts and prayers to his family and friends.

Police have not said much about this case as of yet. The common media narrative to this point has been that this was a burglary gone bad. That is based almost purely on conjecture. Based on what is known about this case so far, as outlined in the link above, it does not seem like a simple case of a home burglary gone wrong. In a previous break in the weekend prior, the intruder had left a kitchen knife on a bed, and in this break made an aggressive move into Taylor's bedroom prior to shooting him. It will be interesting to see what the Miami-Dade police investigation turns up.
