The eviction case involving Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy and his ex-girlfriend who was robbed and beaten during a home invasion at McCoy’s home last month is scheduled to be back in court Tuesday.
However, there is apparently no need for the presence of McCoy, who has been at pre-season training with the Bills, or his former girlfriend, Delicia Cordon. Cordon has moved out of the Atlanta-area home since the July 10 robbery. McCoy’s lawyer, Michael LaScala, said he will still appear in court Tuesday but the eviction issue is now largely moot since Cordon has left McCoy’s home. LaScala said papers will likely be signed confirming that she cannot reside in the house.
The criminal investigation into the robbery-assault continues. McCoy and Cordon shared a home in the pricey Atlanta suburb of Milton. On July 10, as McCoy was in Florida, the home was broken into — there was no forced entry, police say and Cordon was pistol-whipped. On social media, friends of Cordon alleged that McCoy was behind the crime, and Cordon’s lawyer, Tanya Mitchell Graham, said the robber specifically tried to wrest jewelry from Cordon that McCoy had been wanting returned to him.
McCoy has denied involvement, and the NFL is investigating. The couple had a volatile relationship, with McCoy twice initiating proceedings to have her evicted from the home. The current proceeding was underway at the time of the robbery. Milton, Ga. police have also described the crime as “targeted” and not random, and the investigation is continuing.
