Sean Taylor's house
Crime Scene Location
18050 Old Cutler Road, Palmetto Bay, FL 33157
This is the house where NFL player Sean Taylor was murdered.
It is situated at 18050 Old Cutler Road in Palmetto Bay, Florida.
Taylor was an American football "free safety" who played for the Washington Redskins. His teammates nicknamed him "Meast" (half man, half beast) due to his hard-hitting tackling abilities.
On November 26th, 2007, he was recovering from a knee injury at his home in Palmetto Bay when a group of five burglars broke into the property.
The intruders did not expect Taylor to be home at the time, as they believed that he had taken part in an away game against Tampa Bay the night before.
At around 1.30 a.m., the 24-year-old was woken up by loud noises. After realizing that someone was in his house, he jumped out of bed and grabbed a machete that he kept for protection.
When he confronted the group at his bedroom door, one of the men fired two shots at him with a 9mm handgun.
One of the bullets missed Taylor. However, the other one struck him in the upper leg and severed his femoral artery.
Fortunately, his fiancée and one-year-old daughter were not harmed during the attack.
Although the NFL star survived the initial shooting and was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, he suffered heavy blood loss and passed away the following day.
The intruders were charged with first-degree murder and eventually found guilty of the crime. By April 2015, all five defendants had received lengthy prison sentences.
