Report: Cops Get Ray Lewis’ Clothing

March 9, 2000

BALTIMORE (AP) _ A witness to the brawl that led to murder and assault charges against Ray Lewis has given police clothing that Lewis was wearing when two men were stabbed to death outside an Atlanta nightclub, a newspaper reported today.

Jessica Robertson had stored the clothing, which police had been seeking since the day of the killings in Atlanta, The (Baltimore) Sun reported, quoting unidentified sources.

Robertson turned the clothing over to Fulton County District Attorney’s investigators Monday after receiving a grant of immunity shielding her from charges, such as evidence tampering, that she might have faced for having kept or transported the clothes, The Sun reported.

Her lawyer, Akil K. Secret of Atlanta, declined comment.

Lewis and two co-defendants have been charged with assault and murder stemming from a Jan. 31 fight that broke out about 3 a.m. after a Super Bowl party outside an Atlanta nightclub. Jacinth Baker, 21, and Richard Lollar, 24, both of Decatur, Ga., were both fatally stabbed in the heart.

The Sun did not describe the clothing Robertson gave investigators. Lewis reportedly had worn a full-length, white fur coat and white cowboy hat to the nightclub.

Investigators are expected to test the clothing for evidence of blood, which could indicate whether the Baltimore linebacker came into contact with either victim during the fight, the newspaper reported.

Meanwhile, one witness, Kwame King, is awaiting word on whether he, too, will be given immunity. King, who came to Atlanta with Lewis in a 37-foot-long limousine, was contacted by investigators, said his lawyer, Bruce H. Morris.

King, 26, grew up in Lewis’ hometown of Lakeland, Fla., and is a student at Florida A&M. He was one of two people Lewis identified in a statement to police on the day of the killings as riding with him in the limo. Lewis also told them that King had his clothes.
