According to court documents, deputies responding to a panic alarm at Taylor's home found her dead of gunshot wounds in her bed. In questioning her neighbors, they learned that one neighbor failed to report that her son, James, was living at her home at the time of Taylor's slaying. Eight months later, a local man called police when he bought a used vehicle and found a bandana, a shirt, a cap and a gun in the spare tire compartment. Detectives learned the vehicle had belonged to the father of James' girlfriend, and ballistics tests revealed the gun was the weapon used to shoot Taylor.
Additional forensic testing found James' DNA on a toothbrush in Taylor's home, on the t-shirt used to wrap up the gun, on the cap found with the gun, on the bandana and on the gun.
