A house linked to the shooting of a 15-year-old girl in Pine Hills last year has ties to current and recent National Football League athletes, newly available records in the case obtained by the Orlando Sentinel show.
One of the players, former University of Central Florida and Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Mike Sims-Walker, was directly involved in the investigation, records show, at one point entering an Orange County Sheriff's Office interview room to talk with his cousin, a victim in the case who authorities suspected was lying.
Prosecutors have described the home on Robbins Avenue as a nondescript setting where pro athletes could hang out and bring women while visiting Orlando -away from the view of the media.
Gunfire erupted after a burglary there July 29, and a stray bullet struck Danielle Sampson as she rode in her parents' minivan, rendering the Apopka High athlete severely brain-damaged.
The football players were not suspected of any crime or involvement in the burglary or shooting. Indeed, video evidence shows Sims-Walker was helpful to the Sheriff's Office.
