DNA Tests Performed

Recent technological enhancements in DNA extraction methods have enabled the Springfield Police Department's most recent tests to yield a DNA Standard from evidence collected at the crime scene.

We are encouraged by this latest bit of news and are expecting further updates from the Springfield PD.

Taylorcase.com featured on Springfield Fire Journal

Today marks what would have been Anita Taylor's 63rd birthday, and on this day we were offered a couple possible leads by a Washington D.C. news reporter.

Reporter Vinny Del Giudice maintains a blog called the Springfield Fire Journal, where he posted an article featuring Taylorcase.com. Mr. Giudice worked the Springfield, Ohio fire beat during his Wittenberg University days in the 1970s.

Giudice graciously offered possible Taylor murder leads today: he discovered there'd been at least two similar murders in the Ohio/Kentucky area during the week of Halloween, 1966. One of these murders has apparently been solved. Are the nature of the crimes a coincidence? Perhaps, but his efforts open up another door we're compelled to walk through. If nothing else, the fact that at least one 42-year-old murder case can be solved brings us hope for finding Anita's killer.

The two cases:
Linda Kohlmeier, killed October 30, 1966
Margret Warner, found dead September 8, 1966

Welcome to the Taylor Case blog

I want to thank our sister, Leslie Jones, for designing and building this blog. Her efforts will help family members easily post updates on the Anita Taylor case.

In 2002, Aaron Taylor established TaylorCase.com, a website devoted to solving his mother's murder. While more than 42 years have passed since that fateful day in late October, 1966, there are precious few leads to show for it. With the public's help and that of the Springfield Police Department, we aim to help Aaron and Anita's family find peace and closure.

For complete details about the case, please read Aaron's explanation of what happened. Also be sure to watch his two TV interviews, which are available on this blog and at TaylorCase.com. Transcripts of the interviews are also available there.

A $50,000 reward is offered for information that solves this crime. If you have information you feel may help solve this case, please contact us.
