Taylor was found dumped in an alleyway in St. Petersburg, by a man who was looking for cans to recycle. Her legs had been splayed open across the sandy ground underneath her.
She had been beaten, bruised, and stripped of nearly all of her clothes. The only thing she had on was a grey t-shirt that had been yanked up around her head, baring all of her.
Taylor had been bitten by bugs and run over with a car. There were tire tracks clearly imprinted into her lifeless body.
The scene inside was just as strange as the outside; Taylor had bruises, abrasions, and cuts all over the inside of her mouth.
The inside of her eyes had spots of color caused by bleeding, which the medical examiner later claimed was the worst case of petechiae he had come across in his career.
Taylor’s death was deemed a homicide. The medical examiner determined she had been asphyxiated to death.
How did Taylor end up like this?

Taylor just couldn’t kick her pill problem, even after her parents desperately tried to intervene and help her.
