Former Nampa Police Officer Accused Of Brutally Murdering Parents
50-year-old William Taylor who served on the Pocatello Police Force from 1991 to 1996 and the Nampa Police Force from 1990 to 1991 is behind bars at the Canyon County Jail waiting for trial in a case that has a HUGE amount of evidence against him pertaining to the murders of his mother and father 77-year-old Mary Jane Taylor and 76-year-old Paul Robert Taylor.
According to KTVB, the murders took place in the month of September in 2017 at William's parent's home at the 1900 block of West Flamingo Avenue in Nampa, Idaho. Their bodies were brutally beaten and I'll leave out the specifics and details because they're too gruesome and probably not necessary to share.
Ultimately the whole thing went down like this. William says he found his parents dead and didn't know what to do so he jumped into his dad's truck and took off. He was later found in Oregon, sleeping in the truck.
Although we do not have information as to all the evidence prosecutors have against William, we do know that he bought a lot of cleaning supplies and trash bags from two separate stores that have him on video on September 11th and September 12th, 2017, which is immediately after the death of his parents.
Like I said before, there are mountains of evidence that have been found including saw blades, blood, and more so I would imagine that prosecutors will get this one right.
William has been behind bars for the past couple of years waiting for this trial. The evidence is currently being presented to jurors and the trial should begin immediately following. We'll keep you posted.
