Jailed Man Apologizes for Sean Taylor’s Murder

Venjah Hunte was one of five men arrested in connection with former Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor's murder. Hunte was a part of the botched robbery that took Taylor's life. In a letter to the Washington Times, Hunte offers condolences.

“To begin I would like to send my deepest apology to the family of Sean Taylor,” Hunte wrote in a letter to The Washington Times last month in response to several questions. “I know an apology won’t bring him back, but I hope one day they could find it in their hearts to forgive me.”

“My thought or intentions weren’t to hurt him or noone [sic] else, let alone murder, it was something I thought would never happen,” Hunte wrote. “Even though I didn’t pull the trigger I still have to take responsibility for my actions. Period.”

According to the lengthy letter, Hunte has spent 23 hours in solitary due to the high-profile nature of the case. He blames no one but himself.
