Sean Taylor, 24, passed away early this morning from injuries sustained when someone cut his phone lines, broke into his house, and shot him in his bedroom yesterday.
This was a murder. This was no random home invasion or attempted robbery.
What a shame - Taylor was a young man whose life was on a major upswing - he was engaged, had a young daughter (18 months old), and was essentially the star player on the Redskins' roster.
Now he's lying on a cold metal tray in a morgue, all of that intensity and vitality drained away.
Rest in peace, Sean. To the Taylor family, and the UM and 'Skins family - my prayers are with you as you navigate this grief.
