Taylor has his own attorney, Judge Scott Long said, and does not qualify for a public defender.

The alleged victim's mother had a heart attack as they were returning home from a vacation in Myrtle Beach due to the stress the incident has caused the family, according to testimony in Myrtle Beach Municipal Court this morning.
The mother is now in intensive care, according to the testimony.

When he said he wasn't from there, I assumed he meant Myrtle Beach because they proceeded to ask when he was last in MB etc.....Note on the arrest warrant though, wording to the effect 'further investigation shows suspect WAS in the area at the time of the attempted kidnapping' (this recent event with the girl from Tennessee.) So they have either phone records to prove he was in the area or something else.
If he has money (and can claim it legally) then he could be the owner/one of the owners of that Plastering Company. His dress and speaking makes me think he could fit in with a construction business. He didn't come across as someone with a thug appearance.
This may be far-fetched but maybe one of his relatives that was charged with SM's kidnapping and murder looks a lot like him (didn't one of our posters mention that the sketch didn't look a whole lot like ST?). Maybe he turned himself in because he's going to give info to LE on the relative and their involvement with with Britt's disappearance. Doubt it, but it's an idea.
This man possesses an aura of arrogance and smugness. Maybe he is a narcissistic b'tard or he feels a veil of protection from LEA's in the area, for whatever reason.
I really hoped his bond would be a higher amt. I also hope Ms Randa takes security precautions to protect herself, not just right now but in the months to come. People like ST don't take kindly to complications/being picked out of a lineup and I feel sure he has minions who would gladly do some of his dirty work to gain his favor. (that's if this is some type of mafioso gang of thugs.)
Lot's to think about here...... MOO

Well they said they looked for him for a couple of days before he turned himself in, so I just don't think it was an in-person line up. I think it HAD to be a photo lineup. JMO.
Ive went back pulled news records on RM and ST she did pick him from a line up at MB police dept
Police say Massey picked Shaun Taylor out of lineup, and police continue to seek information about the two additional men
i want say im sorry for mixup on how rm picked the guy it was from photo not in person,,((Im Sorry)

I don't know now RoseC...guess the question would be what day did she pick him out? The 21st when it was reported? And if it was in person can they just go and pick someone up to come participate in a line up? If he was there in person, why didnt they question him then and continue on to an arrest right there? Maybe they had to let him go until they could verify somehow he was in MB that exact time of the offense...They get that and then it is enough for probable cause for a search/arrest warrant and they go to his house on Monday the 26th, he's not there...two days later he turns himself in...? Phone records should tell where he went during that time, in fact ALL the time between the 21st and turning himself in...follow that and maybe we'll find that van too. It's no doubt been dumped/burned by now.
$7,000 and he can walk the streets again. Free to go around as many young tourist as he wants. It's not like he has a history, nor does his family members have a history. Then we don't hear from him again until Septemeber. I hope Dawn takes this story back to the national media again and I am sure she will. People need to be aware of what's going on down there.
Well All Hail The, ahem, grand strand! I just have a feeling that this is all being downplayed. I am upset at the, IMO 'low' bond amount!....in spite of the fact that this man (and his minions) are a potential danger to unsuspecting tourists. I hope DD does go national with this!
Makes me wish that I could create a flyer with an illustration of the 'rape van', the composite photo, ST's mug shot, and photos of the vehicle found to be connected to a murder in CC, and a photo of the vehicle registered to ST, etc, etc........then.......
.....stand on a street corner in MB and pass them out to tourists. (I would probably be arrested for such, is what i expect)
Sorry, I am just mad and venting.....Am logging off for awhile to take a deep breath...
Prayers for Britt and the Drexel family at this time.
...and be sure your sin will find you out.
I can tell you right now, that based on how I have seen the Drexel case handled, I will never, ever allow *any* of my children to go to MB, and I myself no longer have any interest going there. I've had my fill of "cover ups" to last a lifetime, I'm not going to choose to go to a place that puts money before safety (though I know MB is not alone in this practice). Just my opinion -- but -- truly, I am disheartened by the handling of BD's case and others in that area.
p.s. before anyone jumps me, I'm not saying Britannee's case was/is a "cover up," but I think there has been a pattern of minimizing and somewhat hiding crime issues in this area. Peace out.
A-freakin-men!!!!! I had to sign in to respond to this WM since I feel exactly the same way. And ITA with you too Doc. I don't have a good feeling about this that it will lead to or resolve anything. I am of the opinion that LE down there doesn't want this resolved! Sweep it under the rug....ignore it....maybe people will forget and it will go away. That sounds cynical, I know, but at the same time..........it sorta has "gone away" recently hasn't it? IMO And if these guys are the POI that LE referred to in BD case, then I guess not naming them or pressuring them didn't work out so well since they tried to abduct another girl!!! Thank God she got away!! Can you imagine if she didn't and she disappeared too? I think that makes me sicker than anything. I hope she, and DD, SCREAM from the rooftops about this!! IMHO, MOO, and all that stuff.
RocNYchick, thank you! I am glad that I'm not the only one who is upset right now. I think the only way Britt will ever get justice is if we all continue to scream from the rooftops! National awareness would certainly put some pressure on LE to get this solved.
The info we have learned from newsmedia since just yesterday regarding these missing/murdered young women and the potential ties to this perp is mind boggling.
I am waiting with my breath held in horror to learn that ST has bonded out by the end of business today.
All MOO. BBL..
...and be sure your sin will find you out.
O/T - Thanks for quoting me Rose...I thought my post was "lost in space" WS was acting funny when I was posting it!
I was wondering something: did the girl who was almost abducted last week know anything about BD missing?
The reporter that gave the breaking story has added a post to the comment section on photo of temp kidnapper:::: read below

I'd like to clear something up that has apparently caused some confusion. Police released only one sketch after last week's attempted abduction. There were a total of three men, according to police, so the sketch released may be of one of the other suspects. In fact, police have not purported that Shaun Taylor is the man in the sketch that was made public. According to them, the woman picked Taylor out of a photo lineup. To the best of my knowledge, no one identified Shaun Taylor based on the sketch. Graeme Moore WPDE NewsChannel 15
This is going to be a bit long so bear with me...my comments are my opinion only.
1.The reporter asks him if he has heard Brittanee's name, he responds "I see it a lot on TV"....DD says she has heard his name during the initial investigation, a woman close to Taylor says he was questioned about Brittenee, but there was no evidence. That statement, if untrue, may put the heat on him during questioning...
2. The reporter asks him if he was in MB last week, he says "Not exactly MB" is what I heard him say. Yet, the victim picked him out of a photo lineup. Do we know what his aliby is?
3. He turns himself in...LE confiscates a stolen truck, which they believe was used in a murder.
4. He has his own lawyer...do we know exactly what he does for a living? I would be curious is there is a paper trail of his paychecks...
5. DD and the reporters state that he is associated with the other men that are POI's in Brittanee's disapperance.
6. He has a lawyer...and his lawyer allowed him to talk to reporters?!?!
7. The blue van and the 2 other men have not been located. What else do we know about the van?
8. Searches for Brittanee were conducted very close to his home.
9. The guy's got a rap sheet a mile long.
There are some very bizarre coincidences here.
Rose...who warned you about posting on this site? I want to contribute to ideas, etc., but I don't want to break any rules...
