The New York Times Gets the Story

Leach and James agree that on Dec. 17, James was placed in the equipment shed — in some places in the deposition it is referred to as a garage — by the head trainer, Steve Pincock. Leach testified that he did not specifically instruct James to go there but said he had no problem with it as James needed to be in a dark place because of his sensitivity to light. (The space is big enough that the offensive linemen go there during special-teams drills to eat ice.) While Adam James said he did not recall anyone locking the closet door, or even if there was a lock, he said several times in the deposition that he was locked in the electrical closet specifically by Leach. He said he characterized it that way because he felt locked in, not because he was actually locked in.
