From News 5 Cleveland:
The Cleveland Police Department has turned over documents to the NFL related to former Browns safety Jabrill Peppers, his stolen gun and the homicide of a 57-year-old woman. Peppers is not a suspect in the homicide, police say.
5 On Your Side Investigators learned Tuesday that CPD turned over two different reports to the NFL last week.
The first report is from Jan. 29 and is regarding an incident involving a stolen gun belonging to Peppers.
The report states that someone went into a parking garage on East 12thStreet, broke into Peppers’ 2014 Range Rover and took a bag with his jersey number on it, sunglasses and an iPad. The report also states that a Glock semi-automatic handgun was taken from the center console.
According to the report, a 57-year-old woman named Marsha Carroll was listed as a possible suspect. Court records show Carroll had a long history of arrests, but the report doesn’t indicate she was ever arrested in connection with the stolen property.
The second report the NFL requested was regarding Carroll’s homicide.
On Feb. 6, Carroll was found beaten, taken to a nearby hospital and later died. A 26-year-old man named Deointa Campbell was arrested and charged with murder and felonious assault for Carroll’s death.
Police say they found Campbell near the crime scene with blood on his hands and pants. When authorities found him, Campbell had a “strong odor of alcohol and appeared to be on some type of substance.”
Campbell told police the blood on his hands was from him biting himself, the report states.

Peppers was recently part of a trade that sent him from the Cleveland Browns to the New York Giants for Odell Beckham Jr.
