NEW ORLEANS -- For Sunday's story about Ray Lewis' involvement in a double-murder case 13 years ago, I wasn't able to ask the Baltimore Ravens linebacker any questions.
I reached out to the Ravens and was given a Lewis statement for the story:
"That was a sad, sad tragedy and we all have sympathy for the families who lost their loved ones. I hope the families eventually find peace."
Lewis faced those questions at Super Bowl XLVII media day here in the Superdome. Here is what he said:
"Nobody here is really qualified to ask those questions. I just truly feel that this is God’s time, and whatever His time is, you know, let it be His will, don't try to please everybody with your words, try to make everybody's story sound right.
"At this time, I would rather direct my questions in other places because I live with that every day. You maybe can take a break from it. I don't. I live with it every day of my life, and I would rather not talk about it today."
