"And, I actually got a call from my office while we were on break. And, um, there's something in the story we need to correct.
My office has been analyzing the tapes, even as I have been on air. And I know that the version we heard tonight, it appears that the words "f--ing"--the terms "f--ing coons" were used.
But the official version that we have from the police department, uh, you don't hear those expletives.
Um, so where the version stating "f--ing coons" comes from, we don't know. So at this time, until we can verify that is an original copy from the Sanford Police Department, the family cannot stand by those terms because we don't know where that version came from."
