Teen Ex-Marine Charged With Killing Young Mother

A 19-year-old ex-marine has been arrested and charged with murdering a young mother from New York, whose body was discovered dumped in a wooded area near her home one week after her disappearance last month.

Dante Taylor was arrested in Florida and faces second-degree murder charged for reportedly killing Sarah Goode, 21, who was a single mom with a 4-year-old daughter named Jocelyn. And, adding yet another horrible level of crazy to this story, Taylor was arrested because cops suspect he committed a different heinous crime.

The teen was initially apprehended because there was a warrant out for his arrest for allegedly attempting to rape a woman in Long Island, N.Y. It’s unclear how police were then able to link Taylor to the mom’s murder.

Goode was last seen at about 1 a.m. on June 7 at a friend’s house. After an extensive search that included more than 40 family members and friends, the medical technician’s car was found on June 12 about a mile from her home. Goode’s body was uncovered in the woods.

There isn’t a whole lot of info out there yet about what motivated the teen to possibly commit homicide, but one of Goode’s friends has suggested the two were romantically involved at some point.

Taylor served in the U.S. Marine Corps from September 2013 until April 2014, when his active service ended. Military officials are prohibited from revealing the reason he was discharged.

Assuming he is found guilty, why do you think this man would do something like this?
