According to ABC News, Former Carolina Panther wide receiver Rae Carruth has wrote a letter to the victim’s mother after spending the past 17 years in prison for the murder of his then 8 month pregnant girlfriend.
It is reported that Rae wrote a 15-page letter to Saundra Adams, the mother of Cherica Adams, that was sent to Charlotte television station WBTV. We also are finding out that he even spoke on the phone with the station accepting responsibility for the 1999 Murder and expressed an interest of gaining custody of their son? What type of Sh*?
Carruth told WBTV, “I’m apologizing for the loss of her daughter. I’m apologizing for the impairment of my son. I feel responsible for everything that happened. And I just want her to know that truly I am sorry for everything.”
Cherica Adams died a month after being shot multiple times by Van Brett Watkins, who was hired by Carruth. It is reported Carruth set up Adams to be murdered because he wanted her to have an abortion. Their son was born prematurely and as a result has cerebral palsy due to lack of oxygen when Adams was killed.
“I should be raising my son. His mother should be raising her son,” Carruth said. “Ms. Adams should not be doing this and I want that responsibility back.
“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.”
Now in a recent report from ESPN, we are finding out Carruth has given up plans to pursue a relationship with his son after release. He wrote a letter to the Charlotte Observer just weeks later stating that he will not pursue custody.
Carruth is scheduled to be released from Sampson Correctional Institution in Clinton, North Carolina, on Oct. 22.
