According to the Broward Sheriff’soffice, Tyquan Pearson was placed in police custody Wednesday for murdering 19-year-old Taylor whom he solicited online for sex at a Tamarac hotel, in May.
Brittney Taylor, was driven by a man described as her boyfriend to the Comfort Suites on May 25, at around 11 a.m. However, that was the last time she was seen alive.
When Taylor’s boyfriend got worried, he called her brother, James, who then contacted Broward Sheriff’s Officers to file a missing person’s report.
Investigators then showed James a prostitution website with Taylor’s picture on it.
“They said, ‘Is this your sister?’ I said, ‘Yeah, that’s her.’ I didn’t know she was doing that. I didn’t want to believe that,” James said.
Pearson, who is a fiancé and a father, got a hold of Taylor through the website.

Detectives said Pearson’s unsuspecting girlfriend picked him up from the hotel. Investigators said Pearson told her that he needed to go to a storage unit to drop off some clothes and other items that he planned to give away.
