The video of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancée Janay Palmer inside a casino elevator was sent to NFL headquarters to the attention of league security chief Jeffrey Miller in April, a law-enforcement official told the Associated Press. The NFL has insisted no one with the league saw the violent images until TMZ Sports released the video this month. The law-enforcement official told the AP he doesn’t know if Miller ever saw the DVD or opened the package. He said his only communication with the NFL was a 12-second voicemail on April 9 from league offices confirming receipt of the package, in which a woman says, “You’re right. It’s terrible.” Miller said Thursday through a spokesman that he never received the video. In a statement to the AP, he said: “I unequivocally deny that I received at any time a copy of the video and I had not watched it until it was made public on September 8.” It remains unclear what happened to the video once it arrived at league offices. Rice, who has since married Palmer, was cut from the Baltimore Ravens and suspended indefinitely by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell after the video was released.
