A month after a home invasion in which she was beaten and robbed, the former girlfriend of Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy issued a statement, believed to be her first public comments since the attack, on Instagram Friday offering gratitude to those who have supported her and saying that she continues to fight "for justice to be served."
"I want to take a moment to express my sincerest appreciation to every last one of you that prayed for me during the last month!" Delicia Cordon wrote. "Every positive post, text, call, & direct message meant a lot to me! Tx to everyone who sent flowers (even strangers), thoughtful gifts & encouraging words. Also those of u who even lost a few brain cells from arguing in my defense with the most ignorant individuals ever. Trust me, I know how frustrating that can be."
An investigation by police in Milton, Ga., has yet to result in the naming of any suspects in the July 10 incident, which took place at the suburban Atlanta home owned by McCoy. Police did not respond to a request for an update on the case Friday.
On July 26, before the first practice of the Bills' training camp at St. John Fisher College, General Manager Brandon Beane made it clear to reporters the team was satisfied from what it had heard at that point from police and NFL investigators that McCoy should be allowed to be part of the team and "we don't see that changing."
The same day, McCoy wouldn't address any details about the case but told reporters he was "very confident" about playing this season and that Beane and McDermott were "110 percent" behind him. At the time, Cordon's lawyer, Tanya Mitchell Graham said, "I have no comments to Mr. McCoy's remarks."
Graham has said her client described the robber as a short black man wearing a mask and dressed in black. He demanded cash and specific items of jewelry that McCoy gave Cordon as birthday presents, the lawyer said. Then the intruder hit her in the face with a handgun several times, she said. Graham said two Cartier bracelets were taken.
Graham did not return an email Friday.
"Just to update those who expressed concern, physically I seem to be healing properly, however mentally is still a battle!" Cordon said Friday in her Instagram post. "I wont question God, & I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. Tx to my amazing support system cause only Lord knows where I'd be without them! Continued prayers are much needed as I, One of Gods TOUGHEST Soldiers, fights for justice to be served, because NO ONE deserves what my cousin & I endured! Love All!"
McCoy was in uniform, but did not play in Thursday night's preseason opener against the Carolina Panthers at New Era Field.
