NFL Star Had Girlfriend Killed. 17 Years Later, He Speaks

Carruth has spent the last 17 years in prison for orchestrating the murder of his pregnant girlfriend, Cherica Adams. Authorities say Carruth contracted with a hit man to kill the 24-year-old mother of his child, who was seven months pregnant at the time. She was shot four times in the vehicle she was driving as she was following Carruth home after a night at the movies.

The letter was addressed to Saundra Adams - Cherica Adams' mother and the grandmother of Carruth's son, Chancellor - who has raised the boy since his mother was killed in 1999. "Adams, I apologize, Ms. Adams, I take responsibility for what happened, ' that she can no longer get on television and do an interview and say Rae has never apologized to me".

Their son has been raised by a family member, but Carruth says he wants custody of his child once he's released.

After spending almost two decades in prison, Rae Carruth wrote a letter expressing an interesting wish he had for his release later in the year. "I feel like if I did it in the open, it would put an end to the lies", he said to WBTV. His mother, Adams, later died. Having had time to look back and ponder on how the events of that night unfolded, I want you to know that I take full responsibility for everything.

The regulator said this "raises significant doubts" that it would be able to monitor the exchange if the deal went through. The exchange said it needed the infusion of capital to invest in its operations and attract business.


"I should be raising my son", he said. Carruth has met his son, Chancellor Lee Adams, twice.

Fowler's report also notes the response from Saundra Adams, mother of Cherica and grandmother and current guardian to Chancellor.

"I'm apologizing for the loss of her daughter", Carruth said, WBTV reports.

"I let him down as he came into this world and the only way that I can make that right and the only way I can work out my relationship with my son is to be there for him", he said. "I'm apologizing for the impairment of my son". "I could have done a better job of keeping Cherica and Chancellor out of harms way". He hopes Chancellor can one day be a part of it and he wants Saundra Adams to know the ball is in her court. I don't hear any ownership of playing an active role, rather than feeling sorry for everything that resulted.

Carruth had not done an interview since 2001, when he spoke to CNN. "I feel like he might not ever have his mother in his life but he could still have me and I could still make a difference and I don't think that's anyone's responsibility when I'm still here". "I want the incident to never have happened at all", he said.

"And I know some people might smirk or laugh about that but I know now that I have a very real relationship with God and that's changed a lot of the ways that I see and view a lot of things". "And the number one answer that I had was I didn't have a relationship with God", he said.

Adams has said in past interviews she plans to be at the prison gates with Chancellor when Carruth is released.

Carruth also challenges the notion that they were in a relationship, and basically saying they had hooked up ("lust was the tie that bound us, not like or love").
