VALDOSTA, Ga. – The sister of Chargers linebacker Randall Godfrey was found fatally shot in her car Tuesday after a wreck following a chase by her former boyfriend, police said.

Deidre Miller, 29, may have been shot prior to the chase, which ended when her car ran into a clump of trees two houses from her home in northern Lowndes County, sheriff's detective Wanda Edwards said.

Authorities were searching for Julonda Lecedrick Clayton, 28, of Jacksonville, Fla.

Edwards said Clayton dropped off Miller's 4-year-old son at his daycare center, and the child told daycare workers that Clayton shot his mother.

Godfrey, who played at the University of Georgia, was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in 1996. He also has played for the Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans and is in his second year with the Chargers.

Chargers spokesman Bill Johnston said Godfrey had been informed. "He's aware and he has gone to be with his family," Johnston told The Associated Press.

Miller picked up her son from her mother's house Tuesday morning to take him to daycare. The child was in the car during the chase.

Edwards said it appeared Miller sped out of her driveway and Clayton followed. She could have been trying to drive through a clearing in a neighbor's yard, the detective said.
