BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – (WFTV) – The family of a Cocoa mother who police said was shot and killed by a man accused of trying to sexually batter her last year said that suspect threatened her before her disappearance.

Joshua Taylor, 30, was arrested Tuesday in connection with the murder of 31-year-old Tashaun Jackson, whose body was found in a rural area in Osceola County earlier this month.

Jackson disappeared Feb. 9 and was last seen on surveillance video in a Cocoa McDonald’s.

Police said Taylor committed the kidnapping and murder in order to avoid a possible life sentence for the attempted sexual battery case.

“We believe that she was killed because of the prior case,” Cocoa police Chief Mike Cantaloupe said.
