Miami Police Release 911 Tapes from Colin Kaepernick Sexual Assault Investigation (Audio)
The Colin Kaepernick sexual assault investigation just took an interesting turn. Miami Police have released the 911 tapes from the night of April 1, when the assault was alleged to have occurred, and the calls definitely makes things more complicated.
Here’s what we knew about the allegations already: on April 1, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, 49ers receiver Quinton Patton, and Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette were partying with an unnamed woman at Lockette’s apartment at the Viceroy Hotel in Miami. According to the woman, they were drinking and smoking marijuana. Then she and Kaepernick, with whom she’d previously “had relations,” retired to a bedroom (or perhaps another room in the hotel), started kissing, and eventually got naked. He left the bedroom, Patton and Lockette “peeked” in, and she told them to get out. After that, the next thing she remembers is waking up in a hospital, where a rape kit was administered.
We don’t know the results of the rape kit, obviously, and police have not come out and said they are investigating a possible sexual assault. They say they’re looking into “a suspicious incident.” But everyone knows it’s an alleged sexual assault, or else the Special Victims Unit (which is a real thing) wouldn’t be investigating.
Here is where things get interesting. Apparently there were two 911 calls placed from Lockette’s apartment the night of April 1—one from a man who identified himself as a security guard and another from a man believed to be Lockette. Both of them say a black female is lying naked on a bed and refuses to leave until she sees somebody—presumably Kaepernick. One of them says the woman’s name is Jesus.
Have a listen:
Now that’s interesting, isn’t it? Do rapists usually call the police and tell them to come pick up their victims? Because that seems like a pretty risky move.
Then again, maybe Kaepernick, Patton, and Lockette are geniuses who realized no one would believe there was a sexual assault if they called the police.
For the sake of everyone involved, as well as all future sexual assault victims, I certainly hope that is not the case.
