Title: Missing/Suspicious- Scott Taylor, 23, last seen Dec. 2 at 9:30 a.m, Rothesay, NB
Post by: GSAR_Mbr on December 07, 2011, 06:43:38 AM
QUISPAMSIS - A 23-year-old man who was found not guilty of second-degree murder in 2008 has gone missing.

Scott Taylor, 23, was last seen Dec. 2 at 9:30 a.m. at his home, and seems to have disappeared without a trace.

"He's normally in close contact with family and friends an no one has heard from him," said Sgt. Craig MacDougall of the Rothesay Regional Police Force.

In December 2008, Taylor was found not guilty of second-degree murder.

Taylor was charged in the March 11, 2008 slaying of Darrell Eugene Upshaw, 33, of Cole Harbour, N.S. According to testimony from the trial, Upshaw was found in a pool of his own blood on Mecklenburg Street after fleeing from Taylor's apartment. Upshaw and two other men had burst into apartment 4 at 29 Mecklenburg in a bid to steal a bag of money that two strippers, who had befriended Taylor just days before, told the robbers was there. A youth was also in the apartment with Taylor and was found guilty of manslaughter in Upshaw's death. The youth served 11 months in jail.

During the trial, Taylor testified he chased after Upshaw with a sword and they scuffled at the bottom of the stairs of the apartment building. Taylor said he dropped the sword and Upshaw, who was carrying a sawed-off .22 calibre rifle, picked up the sword and swung it at him. Taylor said he blocked the blow with his left hand and the blade ripped through flesh, two nerves and four tendons. The wound required 68 stitches.

The two men then ran out into the darkness and the -10 C cold. In the middle of the street, the two continued to scuffle until Taylor said he retreated back into the apartment.

It was then that he saw the youth standing behind him, Taylor testified. Taylor said he didn't see what happened next to Upshaw.

The court record stated that Taylor's blood was found on the handle of the sword that was responsible for the death blow to Upshaw's skull. Upshaw's blood was also found on the blade.

Now police are asking for the public's help to find Taylor. They want to hear from anyone who knows him or might have information on where he may be.

MacDougall said it's "unlikely at this stage" that Taylor may have just went away on his own, or with friends.

Every missing persons case is different, with varying situations dictating when the case becomes more concerning, he said.

"It has nothing to do with how long they're gone. It has to do with their past history, their lifestyle, the contact they would normally have with family and friends, ties with the community and those kinds of things," he said.

"All those factors make us concerned he wasn't seen since Friday."

Members of the Rothesay Regional Police Force have been checking with relatives, friends and places where Taylor often goes, but nothing has come up.

Taylor, who lives with a roommate, was reported missing by a family member. He was last seen by a friend, MacDougall said.

He has no children. His family lives in the area.

Taylor has no known medical conditions, MacDougall said.

He is described as a white male, six-feet-one-inch tall, and weighs 179 pounds. He has short brown hair and blue eyes.

Police are concerned for his safety.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Rothesay Regional Police Force at 847-6300. They can also leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Well anything could have happened to Scott. I mean he seemed to be hanging around with pretty violent people in the past. What type of persons was he hanging out with now. He was free to go wherever he wished, because he was acquitted on a charge of SDM. Were there persons who would not be happy with the verdict in that case and that would be waiting for the day they could maybe harm Scott. Anyone that threatened him in the past should be checked out. This does not sound very good for Scott. And was he working at the time he disappeared? Hoping that some news comes up soon as to what has happened to Scott and that he returns safe to his family. :( :( :( :( :( :( :(

Cape he wasnt hanging arround with those guys it was a home invasion.  He supposedly befriended two stripper,  not all strippers are drug addicts or bad people.  I know two girl who worked there way through college and on the teachers college as dancers.  I do believe something has happened to him.  Wonder if the room mate was totally checked by the police as well as relatives of the guy convicted as well as of the guy who was killed.

There are many who believed it was Taylor and not the youth who was found guilty of manslaughter who actually committed the 2008 murder.  Neither do they believe the story about the "home invasion" although the jury seemed to buy it.

Subsequent violent actions by Mr. Taylor (in one case in particular he held a knife to a girlfriend's throat) would indicate he indeed may have had such tendencies.  If my memory serves me correctly a conviction was obtained on that one.

I would like to post this as it may be revelant here. While many of the examples are related to gangs, apparently it still follows who one chums around with in the end. I do hope that Scott is found and is returned to his family regardless of what he has been involved in the past.

This comes from a series on crime, which has been running lately in the Edmonton Journal
I have only posted part of the article, however I have provided the link.

Victims, perpetrators often share lifestyles
 
By Brent Wittmeier, edmontonjournal.comDecember 3, 2011

EDMONTON - Seven names stand out on the list of Edmonton’s 289 homicides and 209 accused killers between 2001 and 2010.

They’re the accused or convicted killers, or people implicated in another killing, who themselves became victims of homicide.

“Offenders and victims share similar characteristics,” Gulayets said. “They hang out in the same places, they associate with the same people, they engage in some of the same high risk behaviours.”From a statistical perspective, age, gender, proximity, and lifestyle are the major predictors on both sides of the crime ledger, Gulayets said. Young men aged 16 to 25 are most likely to kill or be killed, especially in high crime areas.

Doesn't look to promising for Scott Taylor, his car was located on a street in Saint John as with most young men of his age group he keeps in touch daily with friends and now nothing for a week.

It seems like some people might have a score or two to settle with Scott, due to his choices in life.  It doesn't look good for him, as some people feel they can serve 'justice' themselves, and I am afraid that is the case here.  I am sure there is more than one person involved.

I agree Jobo, and it may well have had nothing whatsoever to do with the previous murder and trial.  I believe there may also be other things in play here, too.

I do feel very sorry for his family.  They have already had very much to try and deal with and it's possible there may yet be worse to come.

RubyRose, thanks for the link to the latest news.
I would imagine the quick concern by police and search would stem for the most part on this young man's past history.
In the first post here by GSAR, the police state they are concerned for Scott's safety.
In the link you posted police state they don't believe foul play is suspected.
Seems somewhat contradictory statements by police.
I'm wondering if perhaps he has become despondent he has had his difficulties.
But yet, police found his car..and not located in the middle of nowhere.
I have no idea of the background between himself and the former g/f, however, I don't take too kindly to any man assaulting a woman regardless of the situation.
News articles state Scott Taylor as being 6 ft 1 in, 179 lbs.
One of the commenters on your link states the newspaper is wrong,
Scott Taylor is 6 ft. 3 in.
Likely the incorrect thing to say however I will; perhaps he ran into someone his own size.

From what I can gather amIam and debbie, I don't believe police are completely ruling out foul play but they don't believe they really have anything to indicate that, at least at this point.

He may yet turn up and be alright.

I thought that also, though police stated Scott has no medical issues..of course I thought with this statement depression was not an issue.

Ah yes, I felt the same with the police comment that anything could be possible.

Quote from the Telegraph Journal:

"More recently, Taylor had served three months, intermittently on weekends, for assaulting his former girlfriend in December of 2009.

Given Taylor's past, MacDougall wouldn't comment on any possible suspects but said "anything's possible."

He added that police would "definitely consider" Taylor's history in the missing persons file"

I just wanted to say , yes he has hung out with the wrong people, but what happened that night WAS a home invasion. Men broke into his apartment with rifles to steal money that thy knew was there because of those strippers. He acted out in self defense, he was scared for his life and in not the right state of mind. And you shouldn't say things like that especially if his family and friends are reading. How ever the assault on the girlfriend yes that was not right but she was as voiltile as him if not more. Regardless maybe he hung out in the wrong crowds, but there is more to this story. Personally I don't think what happened that night anything to do with his disappearance. I hope he is returned home safe and sound!

Welcome PrivateM_89!   So, if I am reading your post correctly, you think Scott Taylor disappeared on his own accord?   Nothing to do with his past lifestyle?   I suppose you could be right, but then should we take it that Scott has stopped hanging around the people that bring trouble?  Like strippers, and guys with rifles?

wow...I hope he does decide to return, and that you are right.

Hi there! No I don't think he took off on his own accord, I think there was foul play and he was abducted. I hope I'm wrong though. It just doesn't make since for him to take off on his own and not tell anyone , he was always in contact with his mother sisters and friends. From what I heard his car was found on the east side with his cell phone and keys still in there and no sign of him.

Post by: jobo on December 10, 2011, 10:18:37 AM
Just generally speaking, guys such as the home invasion kind, are planners and 'pay back' kind of people. They know what they are there for, and barge in when a victim is unsuspecting.  Usually they are in and out, but in this case there was major complications, the victims fought back with weapons.   It didn't end well.

If you think Scott was abducted, then there must be another group of undesirables that he knows, because normally a young man would not be abducted unless he had enemies, I am sorry to say. 

Is there any way he could be in a witness protection program?  I will answer my own question and say, probably not.

All of this is going on in Real time, and let us hope that the police can resolve it for the family and for Scott.

I am sure that Xmas is the last thing on his parents mind. Foremost is Scott. The police must have some idea, at last!
That might explain the road blocks. They may have someone in mind.

Let us pray that today is the day when headway is made into the disappearnce of Scott Taylor.

Just to let you know, that on this site, we do not care about a persons past.  We care when a person is missing and we believe that all deserve the same amount of care and  justice. This is foremost to all of we posters on unsolved canada.

Thanks for explaining that side keilah, I've known people with a past who to some were viewed as violent criminals but in reality were very solid straight up people. If you messed with them, you may have a problem though.

Anytime someone goes missing, unfortunately their past becomes relevant and personal perceptions get voiced. Glad you straightened it out. The police will no doubt have obtained a list of anyone with a possible beef or perceived score to settle. Sometimes you need to look at that side to figure out the possibilities and those "possibilities" are what may lead to finding him, maybe even saving him. Time is of the essence in this situation. IMO

We aren't writing a eulogy, any one with information pertaining to any of this  past and present needs to step up and get the information into the right hands right now.

Thanks for keeping the info straight and I do hope for you all that he will be found soon.

So what are LE doing with all these roadblocks on off ramps and did you say ferries as well? Are they stopping vehicles and searching?  If so why?
Seems far more than LE do in and around Saint John, NB..
Scott Taylor seems as if a low profile kinda guy, yes he was found not guilty of a murder, yes he was convicted of assaulting his g/f.  I did find it odd though re the assault conviction he was to serve 3 months on weekends but just sporadically.  Seems a very strange sentence but then again I am unfamiliar with backroom deals.
I wonder why only off ramps? Suggesting perhaps Mr. Taylor is being held captive in Saint John for some reason?  If so why?

Hi Keilah and welcome. First of all let me say that I am sorry about your friend Scott. I know that this is a  tough situation and not easy for anyone involved, especially those who are the closest to Scott. That having been said, I have to make the point here that no one is trying to be disrespectful, but rather trying to come up with scenarios of things that may have happened to Scott.

I wish all who are searching for Scott, success in finding him.

If Scott needs help all of the details past and present need to get to the right parties. Someone may have even seen something unusual but may not even realize the significance unless pointed out. If any of the players from any past or present activities were exhibiting unusual behaviour before or after, that should also be made known to the right people. Sometimes it is a combination or cumulation of seemingly insignificant tips that can make or break a missing person case. Often the more you give the more you get. Time is very important to chances of sucess. Any or all posts here can be deleted later as required. Meantime personally I would be encouraging as much to be said as possible right now depite what it may look like in the short run. just my opinion.

Not all the details names and such need be posted here as long as the info gets out. There are many reasons why people won't go to the Police. I won't go into detail but there is an entire thread with a discussion about that. Obviously by what has been said, no one should be going directly to the family. This is just another tool that can be useful under some circumstances to solicite and encourage information and tips.

No one is trying to demean anyone... best wishes

Mystery of missing man deepens
Published Thursday December 8th, 2011
C1April cunningham
Telegraph-Journal

 - Police have been inundated with anonymous tips in the case of a missing 23-year-old man who was found not guilty of second-degree murder in 2008.

Enlarge Photo Photo: Noel Chenier/Telegraph-Journal ArchiveScott Taylor, seen here leaving the courthouse in 2008, is missing. But there is still no sign of Scott Taylor, who was last seen by a friend Dec. 2 at 9:30 a.m. at his Rothesay home.

"We're still trying to track down leads to locate him," said Sgt. Craig MacDougall of the Rothesay Regional Police Force.

Police asked for the public's help in locating Taylor in a press release Tuesday. By Wednesday, police said they had been inundated with Crime Stoppers calls but had no positive results.

At this point, no foul play is suspected in Taylor's disappearance.

"If we start getting information that there's foul play involved or something like that, it would be a criminal investigation," MacDougall said. "We're just trying to locate this individual and ensure that he's safe."

Taylor was charged with second degree murder in the March 11, 2008 slaying of Darrell Eugene Upshaw, 33, of Cole Harbour, N.S. Upshaw was found in a pool of his own blood on Mecklenburg Street after fleeing from Taylor's apartment. A jury acquitted Taylor in a December 2008 trial.

In separate court cases, a youth was found guilty of manslaughter in Upshaw's death, and Parker Jacob Richards, a Dartmouth, N.S. man, was sentenced to six years in prison for armed robbery that led up to the slaying.

More recently, Taylor had served three months, intermittently on weekends, for assaulting his former girlfriend in December of 2009.

Given Taylor's past, MacDougall wouldn't comment on any possible suspects but said "anything's possible."

He added that police would "definitely consider" Taylor's history in the missing persons file.

Taylor is described as a white male, six-feet-one-inch tall, and weighs 179 pounds. He has short brown hair and blue eyes.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Rothesay Regional Police Force at 847-6300. They can also leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

The Police have provided a great deal of information enough to generate a huge amount of leads. Hopefully someone will have noticed something and the Police will be able to piece it all together.

If Scott is not employed, would he have had plans to go away to find work. But if he did not take a suitcase or something and a great deal of personal items, that kind of would put that to rest. I mean this is very cold weather we're having now. It is -12 wind chill here in the Cape, but I think it's colder in N.B. tonight, somewhere around -13 actual temp. I find it very odd that Scott has not phoned anyone, considering that he must know by now if he was okay, that he has been reported missing. My thoughts and prayers are with his family for his safe return. :( :( :( :(

April Cunningham, the journalist regarding this report has taken a bit of heat as a result from a poster/commenter on the newspapers site.
Seems the individual has a problem with the mention of Scott Taylor's past history with the Criminal Justice System..ie being accused of murder and the later conviction of the assault of his.. at that time girlfriend.
The individual seems to think that mentioning past history is unfair as they are trying to forget and put this behind them.
But April Cunningham's comments are a matter of public and criminal record and well publicized at the time and I might add with no retractions.
No matter really although I have always been of opinion..what is it re protests??
One " doth protest too much"

Hopefully Scott just took off to escape the heat at the current time and he will resurface when feeling safer.
Surprised though he has not kept in touch with his family.

QUOTE:   (From Sgt. Craig MacDougall...first post on this thread)    "It has nothing to do with how long they're gone.  It has to do with
               their past lifestyle, the contact they would normally have with family and friends, ties with the community and those kinds of
               things."  "All those factors make us concerned he wasn't seen since Friday".

That article is what I based my posts on.   Sorry if I offended friends of Scott, but I was stating the facts from the newspaper.   On the other hand, I see that the ex-girlfriend is being trashed.....and that was NOT in print.   Perhaps that is crossing the line....she too, has family and friends.

Whatever it is,  in order for the police to look, and the public to also be on the lookout for Scott, one should know something about him.

Where would one begin to look? Where  should the public be on the lookout for Scott -  his old neighbourhood, if known,  his friends and past places that he would go to?  Naturally. And to listen to the buzz on the street?   Absolutely!!

Nothing wrong with your posts as based on the newspaper article jobo. Sometimes people find things offensive and don't want others seeing a 'not so nice' side of someone they care about. Human nature, but facts are still facts. I do agree though, that Scott's ex-girlfriend shouldn't be trashed.

I can honestly say that I have not seen this on our local news yet!!!  There might have been a small part on somewhere, but no one is chatting about it at all like they usually do when someone does go missing.  This frustrates me so much.  This is a small area in the Maritimes and they should be saying the missing people here each night with a picture.  Our news programs here are pretty quiet usually anyway

I think in this case the police will have a lot of leads to follow up on, from family of the person who was killed or friends, and the same for the guy who did go to jail his family and friends, ex girl friend and friends just seems they will have a lot of places to start with before they get to the bottom of it.

There are a lot of background issues that may or may not have anything to do with this. The one thing they have is his car. Anyone know what this area where it was found is all about? Seem more a dump site or a destination?
Quote
His car was found on Ellerdale Street in east Saint John on Monday, but Taylor nowhere to be seen

Friends would or should know of his last known activities and contacts. During that window of opportunity, where all was he supposedly at? Any links between the car location and his known activities?

With reference to your question regarding Ellerdale Street, D1, it is a residential street in East Saint John.  It would actually be within walking distance, if one so chose, of McDonald Street, on which, as one newspaper account reports, he was last seen.  Another report had stated he was last seen by his roommate in Rothesay (about a ten minute drive from Saint John) that same morning so I'm not sure which is to be believed.

Interesting and confusing at the same time. Surprised that this was just a quiet residential area. Not meaning anything by this but, was it lower scale housing, multiple unit residential, apartments, or higher end upper scale single family type neighborhood? 

What is this street all about? residential also or something else?

Ellerdale Street seems to consist mostly of apartment buildings, D1, which appear to be well kept with attractive landscaping, etc  I would not describe these as lower scale housing.  From what I hear the rents are fairly hefty and the ones I have been in, at least, are really quite nice.

McDonald Street is just a small street which runs parallel to a former shopping mall which now consists for the most part of office space, a Bank of Montreal (soon to be moving to another location, a Tim Horton's, a restaurant and a few small businesses (all I would say on the respectable side at least as far as I know).

I am not sure why the papers all say he is 23, not that it really matters but he's actually 24. The place he was last seen on Macdonald St was in the Loch Lomand Dooleys. Police have obtained video footage from there showing him meet with an aquantaince but that's where everything goes cold as they also have video footage of that guy by himself shortly after in the Tim Horton's of the same mall. His SUV found a five minute walk from there. :(

If the newspaper accounts which state his keys and cell phone were found in his vehicle, it would indicate, I think, that he did drive to the mall.  I doubt he would leave these articles behind, particularly the keys, and then walk there? 

So it would seem then that the vehicle was either parked later on Ellerdale Street by Scott or someone else.

I also found it unusual that he had been serving his sentence for the assault on weekends since, again if the reports are correct and he was not employed, would it not have made more sense to simply serve the sentence and get it over with?  I'm assuming this was some sort of deal which had been worked out by his lawyer.  Perhaps he was enrolled in some sort of training course, etc during the week.  Maybe his friends could clarify.

That assault was a long time ago, like 2 years or so! And there is no way he would park a few minutes away and walk there, he would have drove right to the mall! I think it's just a rumour about the cell phone and keys.

Thank you, sadfriend.

It didn't make any sense to me that he would park that far away from the mall either unless he particularly enjoyed walking and was into fitness, etc

I hope you hear some news soon.  It's devastating at any time to have a friend or family member missing but would be especially cruel at this time of year.

It was never confirmed that his cell and keys were in the car?

Any idea who he met at the mall? Regular long time friend or new acquaintance?

Perhaps whoever parked it there had another vehicle parked at the mall?

Any surveilance camera's between the mall and the vehicle. Canvas the neighborhood along the route?

That dooleys is on mcadonald st. The person he had met gave a statment to police so the police looked for video footage to prove his story. not sure if he was in the car or not but it is very well possible.

The police should be checking all spots along that area for video surveillance, maybe at some gas stations or convenience stores or anything along that street. How could someone disappeare in the morning. Were there any buses or trains close to that area that were leaving at that hour??? Maybe he skipped town. If someone was going to do Scott harm, you would think they would pick another time to do anything, because this is in broad daylight.  :o :o :o :o :o :o :o

I think it is likely, Cape, that much of the area would not be covered by video surveillance.  With the exception of the former mall (and possibly not even all of that any more) and one or two other possible areas, it is largely just residential.  I think it could be possible to travel by a route that would not be picked up at all.

There is a Dooly's Sports Bar in the Loch Lomond Mall (McDonald Street location), amIam.  Most of the few businesses left in that mall do open at 10:00 AM, I believe.  Tim Horton's (which is also inside the mall) is open at six but certainly the mall itself is open well before 10:00 so anyone may go inside.  There are seating areas throughout the mall.  How much of this is covered by surveillance cameras, I would have no idea.

Finally the name Dooley's has clicked into my noggin, I know exactly where that mall is located. Thanks RubyRose!
I wonder if LE have any surveillance footage...assuming there is footage?

I know it's just coincidence but it's seems so odd that two Dooley's in two separate close by provinces, is the last place two people were last seen..and about two months apart.

I heard an interview this morning on the CBC with a member of the Rothesay Police force.  He seemed to be placing a great deal of emphasis on the description of the vehicle.  He was of the belief that it was quite distinctive for this area and there is a picture of it on the CBC web site with the above story.  Just my own opinion but I'm wondering if perhaps they may have received a recent tip of which they had been previously unaware?  He was still saying that the last known place Scott was seen was in East Saint John but he wouldn't be more specific.

I've posted a picture of Scott's vehicle from the link provided above by Ruby Rose.

Rothesay Regional Police are hoping someone remembers seeing Scott Taylor's car on the afternoon of Dec. 2.

Taylor, 23, has not been since about 12:30 p.m. that day.

Detective Sgt. Craig MacDougall said Taylor's vehicle — a light green 2004 Cadillac SRX — is a little bit unusual.

"[It’s] similar to a station wagon only a higher profile on the wheels. So, it is, I guess, considered a crossover SUV,” he said Tuesday.

His car was found on Ellerdale Street in east Saint John, but Taylor was nowhere to be seen. Police released a photo of the car Tuesday, showing it covered in dirt that obscures the licence plate.

Anyone who saw Taylor's Cadillac in east Saint John on the afternoon of Dec. 2 , or who has any information on the movement of the vehicle, is asked to call Rothesay Regional Police.

I strongly believe that Scott has met up with foul play. I believe that he either took someone in his vehicle that he trusted and they had plans that Scott would not be coming home. They dumped his vehicle, but why??? I mean the fact the licence number was made invisible by the mud is a clue for sure. I hope the police have dusted down this vehicle from top to bottom. Also, were the keys in it or was it locked without any keys around??? :o :o :o :o :o :o

Yes, I agree, for a guy that has had quite a streak of bad luck, how come he's driving a Caddy. Wow, what was he into?? Maybe he was dealing drugs and he was able to afford this expensive vehicle. It sure sounds like something was going on here. He has been missing for quite some time now. What about cell phone calls or anything like that, is there any record of the last phone call he received? There might be some clues there. :o :o :o :o :o

Just to jump in here.  His car was found with mud covering the license plate number.  This is often used as a ruse by those who deal in drugs, or something else. Just to let you know!! In addition, they will often park their cars i within other cars, such as shopping  malls, kentucky fried chicken, and even car lots, and garages, who are holding cars overnite to be serviced. Then another car will pull up, or a person  will walk to that parked vehicle,  and the "meeting will take place".

Just want to note that there are many many Cadillac SUV's around where I am living in NB and it is not as uncommon here as people seem to think.
I always wondered how young people can afford them also, but many do lease or rent them around here for "status" and to look cool.

Also, while driving around the past few months, I also noticed there are many cars/trucks that are plastered with mud and salt as it seems there is road construction on every corner around that time this happened, so that isn't as big of an issue to me IMO.

Sad friend FYI,
if your friend is found alive and well, which I sincerely hope he is, he can probably expect a visit from CRA in regards to your comment about his working onder the table in renos...JMHO

Scott Taylor is missing and there are family and friends who want him home.

Personally, anyone's past behavior does not matter much to me, now finding a missing person who has loved ones in pain while they gone that matters more. Scott deserves the same amount of effort to find him as anyone else who has gone missing IMO.
Although I did not know of Scott before this happened, the family and friends of Scott Taylor are in my thoughts this season, I hope he is found and the matter resolved.

I would also like to note that some people's attitude's towards the previous background and lifestyle of victims is why we are now having the Picton inquiry. Just something to think about..................

I've been dormant on this thread since I started it, mainly due to a busier work schedule. I would like to note a few local rumors as I am from the Quispamsis which neighbors Rothesay... For those that don't know you can drive right into the other without realizing they are that close to being a single municipality.

As per this allegation about check points/road blocks all over the city and at the ferry. I find that hilarious, show me the news article that notes it. The media would have been all over that if it occurred. The Rothesay Police were involved in a search on the Kingston Penninsula as I have heard but that could have been a rumor.

Police however would NOT have been searching cars at check points. Get with the times privacy laws do not allow this unless consent is given or probable grounds are present. Yes if a cop pulls you over and your car smells like weed you will be searched.

They would not have had a check point at the ferry it gets congested enough as it is, this would cause them to much hassle. The road blocks at the on off ramps happen here once a month. And are conducted by the RCMP on the off ramps catching people with out seatbelts, invalid registration, inspections and insurance.

The last rumor I would like to dispell before it finds it's way on here is that the remains found in Saint John around the 17th of December had nothing to do with this file. No I do not have an article about that find. However there were rumors that the remains found were those of Scott Taylor and I confirmed with a source who would know and they were not linked to his file.

The fact that didn't make the media should tell all these people that panic when 2 murders make the news, exactly what I keep trying to explain. Most missing persons and bodies don't make the news only those involved in these types of files hear the real numbers.

In response to a post on Dec. 30 2011. I too am from this small community and found it just as hilarious when I had read the post about road blocks!!!! Wow, that poster sure has their head in the sand. I didn't go through one road block!! As for the comment that same poster made about Cadillac SRX's being common in this area, sure they are, among the wealthy. Sorry to say but the truth about Dick Oland and Scott Taylor may never be known. Our police force are more like traffic patrol. I mean that with no disrespect but for many years that's pretty much all they were needed for. That being said I do hope for Scott's family's sake he has a safe return.

Im reading all the presumpous comments on why is he driving an expensive vehicle and people implying that because his license plate was covered in mud that he MUST be a drug dealer....well Im a single mom and more often than not when i was back home in saint john my vehicle was always gross and dirty at this time of year. So mayeb you should all look at your neighbors license plates!!! if they are dirty THEY MUST be drug dealers too!?? correct? no , of course not, how crazy does that sound. And I dont care who you are just because a portion of your life you may have associated with people on the wrong side of the fence doesnt mean your whole life will be that way, its rediculous that you people are passing judgment like that. I hope that you guys dont go missing and have a dirty car, or i hiope your car isnt sitting in a parking lot or at a garage getting work done when you go missing, because everyone will thing HE MUST HAVE BEEN A DRUG DEALER.... grow up and havbe some xxx xxxx dignity. this person has family!!!

calgarian, I believe it was indicated that mud was on the vehicle, because someone was trying to hide the licence plate. My feeling is that by obscuring the licence plate, that can keep the car from being identified for a period of time. I believe in this case it was obscured for some unknown reason. And because Mr. Taylor is still missing, I believe for sure it was covered up for a reason. Nobody really knows what happened to Scott Taylor, but we do know of a trial he was involved in previously. I don't know what to tell you, maybe you know Scott personally. I do believe Scott came to harm in some manner, because of the past criminal case he was involved in, that is my opinion. I feel very badly for Scott's family, not knowing where he is or what has happened to him. I don't know if a reward has been offered for any information or not. It would be good if there was, because maybe someone would come forward with information. My thoughts go out to his family and friends for his safe return. :o :o :o :o :o :o

i dont know him personally i just know alot of people who do know him. he was very family orientated from what i have heard. its a shame that people are saying things and rumours are spreading, im nearly acrossed the country and I heard a rumour a few weeks ago about this. Its just a shame, people should spend less timetalking about what he USE to do and concentrate on whats going on right now. the point is that he is a human being and he is missing, how would you all feel if your son was missing, or if you were a little girl and your favorite uncle was lost... i think it would be pretty heart breaking and thats how EVERYONE needs to look at it. because clearly thinking and doing what everyone has been thinking and doing isnt accomplishing ANYTHING. that news article is the same one i saw nearly 2 months ago. its rediculous. I bet if his dad was a cop or his uncle was a cop or a lawyer or anyone in the legal feild then the news would be ALL OVER this case!

yes, the plate does have to be clear which makes no sence that a drug dealer would cover thiers up on purpose because they tend to do things more legit than others when it comes to vehicles because they want less risk of being pulled over, and that would be a obvious reasn to pull someone over and then have just cause to search thier vehicle...

I'd be more inclined to think, calgariansaintjohner, that whoever parked his car on Ellerdale Street deliberately covered the licence plate in an attempt to delay the car being found.  I'm not sure exactly how long after he was reported missing until the car was located but I seem to recall it was not right away.

I noticed too on the Facebook page that a reward had been posted.  Hopefully, that will at least jog a memory or two and something may come out of it.  At this stage though it is certainly not looking good.  Still, I suppose, there is always hope.

you guys could be right. but i am very framiliar with ellerdale street, my best friends mom lives right across the road from where his suv was found...there is a police station pretty near by there just like 2 minute drive down off of bayside drive. i would think if they didnt want it found they would have drove it out to black river and parked it behind an old condemed house or something, not on a street filled with family apartment buildings where people would notice an out of the norm car parked for days,especially a cadilac......it doesnt make sence to me,alot of those buildings have subsidized housing, that car does not fit in, HOWEVER there are apartments at very costly prices there too as well...

Someone had to have parked the car there. Do you think there is any possibility that Scott parked it, and was taken right from that location? Could he have walked somewhere near by, and was taken from there? Now I'm curious as to whether he would have had a reason to go to that apartment building. That would bring us right back to the place where we have to wonder why the vehicle itself seemed relatively clean, and yet the plate was covered in mud.

This is the problem......all we have is speculation.

In the beginning, I had thought he probably parked the car on Ellerdale street himself, debbie (and he may have).   Since his last known sighting was at Dooly's in the former shopping mall, however,  I would have expected that when the car was located police would have questioned the apartment bldg residents to determine if anyone had noticed any suspicious activity, etc.  At that time, if he had a reason to be at that particular bldg, I would have thought it would come to light. 

You are right, though.  Sadly, it is all pure speculation.  In this particular case, at least until such time as he may be found, I believe any piece of information could be relevant.

Yes, any piece of information could be relevant. In this case there has been absolutely nothing to go on. It's as if Scott vanished into thin air.

There is a 10000 reward and his aunt added I believe 2000 to it today. As for the mud on the plate, a few days before he went missing we had some snow, that is the reason the plate was dirty I seen it myself just like many others.

I don't care about the mud on his plate, any longer.  The longer that this young man is away, the worse it looks!!

I hope he is in hiding, and will return home, or at least contact home.

But Sadfriend, the longer that he is away withought comminication to his family, the sadder it appears.

Keep the faith for answers.

Right now that is all that anyone can do!

That just may be what it is, rumours. How would anyone let someone be into them for that amount of money, it does not make sense. We never heard any of those rumours and we hope that it is just smoke and nothing to it, but who knows. Whatever, we do pray for Scott's safe return to his family. This is a long time for Scott to be missing, I mean we have gone through Christmas and New Year's and that is when family would contact each other. I don't think that Scott can contact anyone, because I believe he would have by now.  :o :o :o :o

AngelBear,

Scott would be on CPIC as with any missing person so essentially he is nation wide. Should he turn up in any way shape or form it will trigger in the database that his is listed as missing.

Im from Saint John, yes, but not living there anymore... Im not saying that I know what happened because clearly no body does however , things arent looking good. And from what I have heard Scotty is a very family orrientated person, so to think that hes gone to Montreal or something like that ...for 2 months.... I think is highly unlikely.... I highly doubt he would let his family worry like this...I hate to think of anything happening to anyones child as i also have children of my own...its a very sad thing just to think about. To be honest Im glad I have no personal tie to him other than common friends , because I dont thin k i could bare having one of my  close friends missing, it would be too hard...i think at this point it would be easier on the family to know honestly if he is dead or still alive ...atleast then they would know where he is!

If he has gone into hiding for whatever reason, calgariansaintjohner, the only reason I could think that he would not have contacted his family would be if he felt he would be placing them at risk.  If there is any truth at all to these rumours, these are very dangerous people.

Again, all pure speculation.  I continue to hope he may yet be alright.

My last post was deleted because I called calgariansaintjohner a name. A name I thought was deserved. But then I sign on to read another outrageous post by her!!! Without the name calling this time, you are wrong to say Scott was a nobody besides his family, you're wrong to go on and on about a BOGUS RUMOUR about such a large sum of money and you're wrong to ever think the Taylor's know what happened to their son/brother/nephew/uncle but are playing a 'game'!! I still can't believe you have said the things you have, really makes me think what kind of person are you?  If you knew the family at all you would know that his mother is one of if not the strongest women out there and has been put through a LOT in her lifetime with all her children leading up to this moment!! More then I could ever think was possible. If I knew your real name 'calgariansaintjohner' I'd post what you have said about the entire situation in the facebook group, especially about it being a game and have you removed from that group in a second, as they most definitely don't need you to be a part of it. Thanks.

Sad Friend, your points are valid but note that each member is entitled to their opinions. The Moderators/Admins cannot be blamed for removing your post if names were involved but I can certainly understand your frustrations.

On that note Calgarian, it is a valid point that you do make some very contraversial posts.

Let's keep this thread about Scott and the plausible facts/ theories.

In all fairness to calgariansaintjohner, I have never gotten the impression from any of her posts that she wishes anything but the best possible outcome for either Scott or his family, in other words that he will be soon be home safely.  I believe most, if not all, of the posters on this thread are hoping for the same thing.

Unfortunately, In the absence of any solid information, it is difficult to assess what may or may not be plausible.

  I also agree to all of the above.
 We all wish that Scott will come home. 

My opinion: , I had originaly  thought and hoped  that he may have gone into hiding, and now am wondering why he has not contacted his family whom he loves.

His Mom is frantic ---- so what is there really to say? What can be said to her?
She just wants her Scott to come home.
She sounds calm for her son's sake, in my opinion.

I hope for her sake that this will be resolved soon. I realize that we all do.


There are too many mother's on this site who also grieve for the loss of loss or the missing  of their child.
There are far too many with very sad outcomes.
My heart, as a Mom,  goes to out her.

As in any unsolved case, the town rumour mill is active. At this time we have no way of knowing what is true and what is not.

That having been said, if anyone feels they have information that may be relevent to this case, it should be turned over to LE. One can always phone Crimestoppers if they wish to remain anonymous.

I live in Saint John and this is my first time posting to the forum. I'm not a friend of Scotts or the family. I'm just a casual observer of the things that happen in the city that i live in. It's been months since he has gone missing and there are many questions in the community about what happened to him. And with all those questions, come rumors.

Is the large amount of drugs and cash that his older brother arrested with a possible connection? I mean seriously... being busted with that much product and cash must mean that his brother owed somebody?? Did they come after Scott for some sort of retribution? http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/new-brunswick/story/2011/03/24/nb-saint-john-drug-bust.html

I assume these connections have been followed up on.

Also, the rumors now are that the death of Joseph Real Doucet in KP recently had something to do with a deal gone bad  about the sale of a vehicle or something like that?

I sympathize with Scotts family and friends and hope for a safe return for their sake, but there are too many shady dealings that seem to have happened in Scotts life for this to be just a case of a guy going off the radar on his own. If people were holding him because of a debt owing, you would figure that somebody would have been contacted for a ransom or something. It just leads me to believe that something has happened that is keeping ST from talking or making contact with anybody.

I too sympathize with Scotts family, especially his mother. Am I right when I read that Scott's father was found dead?
Is this true - or did I read it incorrectly?
With Scott's brother involved in the drug trade, the chances are great that Scott was too, or that Scott knew too much.
There were too many "criminal elements" swirling around in this youg man's life, to vouch for his chances of personal safety.
Surely Scott would have made contact with his family by now - a text message, or a quick call.
The chance of finding him alive, in my mind, is pretty doubtful. However, one can always hope. Stranger things have happened in this life.

Hi there, have been lurking the board for awhile and decided to sign up and add my 2¢ today. I did do not know Scott but I live in the area where he was last seen and where his car was found. I'm sure the police have thought of this, but I haven't seen it suggested on this board as of yet.

Perhaps Scott was meeting a friend on Ellerdale St, and they decided together to walk to Dooly's? Since it's a pool hall and bar he may not have wanted to drive home and may have decided to leave his car at a friend's home rather than in a public parking lot? I know I've parked at a friend's house, walked to a bar, and then cabbed or walked home in my time. He may have been planning to stay at the friend's house or come back for his car in the morning when whatever fate befell him occurred; possibly during his inebriated trip home?

That all sounds great, but was he in that bar that evening??? They have video surveillance of that bar. If Scott was meeting someone, he could leave his car in that parking lot all night, people do that sometimes. I really think that Scott met up with someone, either a so called friend or an acquaintance that intended to do him harm. Nobody leaves their car for as long as Scott did, without something having happened to them. My prayers go out to his family and I hope they find out what has happened to him. :o :o :o :o :o :o

I just went looking on the web to see if there have been any news updates...I never found any.

But I did want to say something about all the fighting I've read on this thread... and this is all just MY opinion.

I tell my friends all the time...If you don't want to hear my opinion about your troubles, then don't bring your troubles in to my house...meaning ... if you tell me your problems, I'm going to give you an opinion.

My heart does truly go out to his family and friends and I will be keeping my fingers crossed that it isn't a bad outcome.
However, to the friends/family complaining about his past coming into play... sorry ... you and police asked for the public's help in finding this young man, anything written on here is either public knowledge via court records/news papers or by rumor, his past DOES enter into it. It makes a difference. Not in judging the young man but in FINDING the young man.
I and a lot of others could care less (are not judging a persons character by) what his profession or his friends professions are or what he was involved in, but it is relevant when someone goes missing.

Every missing persons case is different, with varying situations dictating when the case becomes more concerning, he said.

"It has nothing to do with how long they're gone. It has to do with their past history, their lifestyle, the contact they would normally have with family and friends, ties with the community and those kinds of things," he said.

"All those factors make us concerned he wasn't seen since Friday."

I do understand that it is hard for family members to see and read some of the  posts made on these kind of sites, but they don't have to read it. Turn it off if it's too much for you, it's understandable.

Like it or not he is now in the public eye along with all of his business personal or otherwise, and just because a poster posts something from his past does not mean they are judging his character.

I for one don't want to hear of harm coming to anyone. Not prostitutes, strippers, drug dealers/users and I don't believe in the death penalty.  I also don't believe in Vigilantism and think that the person who does is only making things worse, which will never fix whats been done.

I have never seen anyone on any part of this website hope for a bad outcome in any thread.

and again these are just the thoughts that crossed my mind as I FULLY read this thread.

Trabear, before quoting me please read my post fully. I stated a friend or acquaintances father was found deceased not Scott's father.

Not much seems to be being done. My friend lives in the building where his car was found and she says all the missing posters have been taken down. Every time I visit her I think about this, it has been 5 months now, I believe? Unless he has seriously gone into hiding I'd say we must expect the worst:

I don't wish to sound cold, but he may be found within a 10 minute driving radious.  Stats say it, generally speaking.
Approximately within a 9 mile radious.

Take care, and let's hope!!

 I would like to state that this is a sad reality for myself and my family. I would like to clear-up the rumor that "we" ST's family, know where he is. Because we don't. My Mother is a very strong woman, and we stand beside her always. I pray every day that we find him... He's been gone for close to ten months, and we deal with this every minute of every day. I dont wanna reprimand ANYONE on here for what has been posted. Rumors are just that... and despite of what ppl have heard, we just want answers and closure... No one should have to go one day with out knowing where their LOVED ones are. I hope that this site brings the right information to the right ppl.

MelTay:  Thank you for your post, and getting us all back on track here. The sad reality is that Scott is still missing.  The tragic reality is that it is one day at a time for his grieving family, who are shocked that he disappeared.

Getting the right information to the right people is difficult, since all that we have to go by is a few news articles, and it seems as though the press (as usual) have dropped Scott's disappearance and are now chasing after other Headlines.

I doubt that many of us ever believed for a moment that his parents know where he is. That rumour would be considered laughable, were  it not for the seriousness of the issue that this young man is still missing from his home and his loving family.

Whoever you are, if you have any information as to Scott's whereabouts, please call the tip line and let them know where he can be found. Use a pay phone.  I think there are still a few around.  You do not have to give your name .Do the right thing!!
Then, perhaps you can sleep better at night.

Meltay, I can relate to how you feel, my brother went missing in 1989 .  I pray you get resolution soon, the not knowing is the very worst, I know. All you can do is take one day at a time, keep pushing the police, and the media to keep it upmost in their minds.  I still call the police once a month and it has now been a lot of years, and my Dad passed then this summer my Mom passed they went to their graves not knowing what happened to their son so I can related to how your feeling.  Keep pushing , and pushing and pushing, dont let them forget, .

Amazing how so many are missing in N.B., especially men. It is astounding to me why nobody is ever found, remains or someone seeing them after they leave home. Is anyone really looking for those missing people up there. I mean are family members going out to check where the last place they were or anything. Obviously, people are getting away with a lot of crime in N.B. :( :( :( :( :(

Remains found in Saint John identified as man missing since 2011

Police say human remains found in Saint John last month are those of a Rothesay, N.B. man reported missing more than four years ago.

Scott Arthur Taylor was last seen on Dec. 2, 2011 in Saint John. The 24-year-old man was reported missing by his family two days later.

A mountain biker found human remains in a wooded area off the Old Black River Road, near Bayside Drive extension, on May 7.

An autopsy was conducted and police say the remains are those of Taylor.

They believe he has been deceased since December 2011 and they are investigating his death as suspicious.

The RCMP’s major crime unit, the Saint John Police Force and the Kennebecasis Regional Police Force have created a joint investigative team and are investigating Taylor's disappearance and death. 

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact police.

Thank you, debbie.

From the time these remains had been first found, I though there was a very good chance it was Scott.

At least now his family knows he is gone and I hope they will be able to at least find some comfort in that.  I seriously doubt we will ever know what actually happened that day and  I would be very surprised if an arrest is ever made in this case.

This area is not far away from where he was actually last seen.

I feel like this might be the push people need to actually say what they know ..... or at least I hope so.

If anyone knows (or thinks they may know) anything they need to call the Police rather than posting it on social media.

Taken from post #1

Quote
Taylor was charged in the March 11, 2008 slaying of Darrell Eugene Upshaw, 33, of Cole Harbour, N.S. According to testimony from the trial, Upshaw was found in a pool of his own blood on Mecklenburg Street after fleeing from Taylor's apartment. Upshaw and two other men had burst into apartment 4 at 29 Mecklenburg in a bid to steal a bag of money that two strippers, who had befriended Taylor just days before, told the robbers was there. A youth was also in the apartment with Taylor and was found guilty of manslaughter in Upshaw's death. The youth served 11 months in jail.

There is a $10,000 reward.  Perhaps someone out there knows, and could use the money.

I wonder if it was revenge killing - and they took the money that was there?

Now that his remains have been found, perhaps the police may have something to go on, and the killer will eventually be caught.

Scott was only 23, and for someone so young, he certainly got himself into more than fair share of trouble.  It is the family that suffers. My condolences go out to them.

Of course nothing can be ruled out, jellybean, but I've always believed that if Scott was murdered and, now it would seem that he very likely was, that he didn't even know his killers.  I believe they were probably not from NB, but were here for one reason only and once that was accomplished, they were long gone.  I would be surprised if anyone does come forward whether or not they believe they may know something.  This is all pure speculation on my part, of course.  I could very well be wrong.

I too feel very sorry for his family and friends.  It would appear he was very well liked by most who knew him.  I seems such a tragic waste of a young life.
