A law enforcement official told the Associated Press that he sent the National Football League the full Ray Rice videotape months ago, and that a woman at the league official confirmed receipt.
The official played the AP's a 12-second voicemail from an NFL office number on April 9 confirming the video's arrival. On the voicemail, a woman expresses thanks and says, "You're right. It's terrible."
That was the extent of his conversation with the league, the law enforcement official told the wire service. He included his contact info along with the DVD of the security camera footage.
He told the AP that he was not authorized to actually release the video, but shared it anyway, because his wanted the NFL to have it before deciding on Rice's punishment.
He added that he sent a DVD copy of the security camera video to an NFL office and included his contact information. He asked the AP not to release the name of the NFL executive, for fear that the information would identify the law enforcement official as the source.
For their part, the NFL has steadfastly insisted that no one from the office had viewed the February domestic violence incident until it was leaked by TMZ Sports earlier this week.
On the latest allegation, the NFL told TheWrap, "We have no knowledge of this. We are not aware of anyone in our office who possessed or saw the video before it was made public on Monday. We will look into it."
