    Canada - Nadine Taylor, 29, Halifax NS, 28 July 2010


    Police believe a Halifax woman who hasn’t been seen since July was murdered.

    There has been no trace of Nadine Taylor, 29, since she left her Convoy Avenue apartment in Fairview to use a pay phone to call a friend at about 11:30 p.m. on July 28.

    Halifax Regional Police were informed of her absence on July 31 and have called it a missing-person case until now.

    "There’s information that officers have learned through their investigation that leads them to believe that Nadine has met with foul play and it’s unlikely that she’s going to be found alive," Const. Brian Palmeter said Thursday afternoon.

    Taylor’s boyfriend, Gene Hape, said Taylor had a crack cocaine habit and worked as a prostitute, walking the local strolls. He said she had encountered violence before — she was attacked last fall by a man who put a belt around her neck, and a man with a gun threatened her before that.

    UPDATE

    A suspect in the recent disappearance of Halifax prostitute Nadine Anne Taylor was questioned for several hours Tuesday by investigators, sources told The Chronicle Herald.

    Steven Elliot Laffin — in jail for allegedly sexually assaulting, unlawfully confining and threatening to kill another Halifax prostitute this summer — was picked up Tuesday morning from his cell at the Central Nova Scotia Correctional Facility in Dartmouth, where he’s on remand.

    The questioning about Taylor’s disappearance went on for several hours, the sources said. It wasn’t clear whether charges were imminent late Wednesday.

    Taylor, of Convoy Avenue in Fairview, was last seen July 28 when she told her boyfriend she was going to phone "an old friend" to ask that person to pick her up at the apartment. She was reported missing July 31.

    Laffin faces a charge of second-degree murder in the disappearance of Nadine Taylor, who also worked as a prostitute in the Halifax area.

    Taylor, 29, was reported missing on July 31. Her fiancé said she went out to make a phone call because she didn't have a phone at home, and never returned.

    Accused in murder pleads not guilty to inmate assault

    A jailhouse dispute between two murder suspects will go to trial next fall.

    Steven Elliot Laffin, 37, is charged with assault causing bodily harm to Clarence Michael McLeod, 57.

    [snip]

    Police then began investigating the Dartmouth man in relation to Nadine Taylor, who went missing after leaving her apartment on the night of July 28, 2010, to make a phone call.

    Police haven’t located the 29-year-old woman’s body and say it might never be found, but they charged Laffin with murder in October 2010. A preliminary inquiry is scheduled for January in Dartmouth court.

    Laffin also has a jury trial set for Nova Scotia Supreme Court in October 2012 on five charges stemming from the attack on the other woman, who escaped from the trunk of a moving car.
