A law enforcement official told The Associated Press that the video of Ray Rice punching his fiancée, now wife, inside an elevator was sent to the attention of National Football League security chief Jeffrey Miller at NFL headquarters back in April.

The NFL has maintained that nobody within the organization ever saw the footage from February of Rice knocking Janay Palmer (now Rice) unconscious before it was released by TMZ Sports earlier this month. The official, who spoke to AP on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release details of the case, said that he does not know if Miller saw the footage or opened the package. But, he added, he did receive a voicemail on April 9 from a woman at the NFL headquarters, confirming that the package was received and saying: "You're right. It's terrible."
