MIAMI (AP) -Police have detained at least three people in the Fort Myers area for questioning in the death of Washington Redskins football star Sean Taylor, a newspaper reported Friday.
The Miami Herald said on its Web site that investigators believe the suspects learned of Taylor's house through someone who unwittingly set up the burglary by bragging about his wealth.
The suspects include a teenager and two men in their 20s from the Fort Myers area, the paper reported.
But Miami-Dade County police Detective Carlos Maura told The Associated Press he was not aware of anyone in custody. He said only that detectives were in the Fort Myers area for a case, but declined to say which one.
Taylor was shot at his home in the Miami area early Monday during what police called a random burglary. He died a day later from his injuries.
