Taylor’s body was found in the backyard of a home on the 800 block of Hill Avenue in Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania on November 24, officials said.

19 News has learned that Taylor’s body was found inside a large bag that was placed in a large construction bag.

Investigators also confirmed that Taylor died from a gunshot wound to the head, and the arrest warrant suggests the murder took place in Cleveland.

Cleveland police said Kennedy and Taylor lived together in the 3200 block of West 98th Street before she disappeared.

Kennedy will appear in court on January 3, 2023 at 8:30 am.
