The ex-girlfriend of Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy is offering a $40,000 reward for information in the violent July robbery and beating attack on her in the Milton home she once shared with the football star.
Delicia Cordon and her lawyer announced the award during a press conference Friday for anyone who can help police arrest the man who beat her in the face with a gun and stole jewelry that McCoy had given her.
Cordon also said during the media event streamed on social media by Channel 2 Action News, that she believes McCoy was “involved” in in the robbery and beating.
McCoy has previously denied any involvement in the attack.
For the reward, Cordon is offering $20,000 of her own money, and Cordon’s lawyer Tanya Mitchell Graham donated another $20,000 to the fund, Graham said.
Cordon and McCoy had shared the Milton home since 2016, but McCoy had tried to evict her from the home multiple times over the course of a year, beginning in July 2017. By June 2018, McCoy had moved out of the house and put it up for sale, allowing Cordon to stay until it was sold, McCoy’s mother told police. McCoy had asked Cordon to return specific pieces of jewelry as a part of their romantic relationship ending.
“Never did I think LeSean would go as far as having me beat up to retrieve jewelry that he had given to me,” Cordon said.
On the evening of July 9, a man entered the home, went to Cordon’s bedroom and demanded pieces of jewelry that McCoy had given Cordon, according to police. The man indicated he knew McCoy and asked specifically for items that McCoy had given Cordon for her birthday in 2016, Graham said. The man beat Cordon in the face with a handgun and cut a bracelet off her arm with wirecutters when Cordon was having a difficult time removing it, Graham said.
After the attack, more of McCoy’s ex-girlfriends reached out to Cordon and said McCoy had been physically abusive to them, Cordon said. McCoy denied allegations of physical abuse against romantic partners shortly after the attack against Cordon.
Cordon now lives in fear, experiencing panic attacks and finding it difficult to do normal things like grocery shopping, she said.
“We have a violent criminal who is still at large and we need the public’s help,” Graham said. “We know this is not an accident. We know that this was targeted, and we know that someone knows something about it.”
Graham and Robin Martinelli, Cordon’s private investigator, also criticized the Milton Police department for not doing enough to solve the case. The department responded point by point to their criticisms in a statement provided to Channel 2, saying obstacles to the investigation have been created by “all sides” and detectives have been “stonewalled” by some people involved in the case.
Graham asked anyone with information related to the attack to call Martinelli Investigations, a Lawrenceville private investigation firm that Cordon has hired, at 770-337-3999. The Milton Police Department is also investigating the case and can be reached at 678-242-2570.
