Investigators have not indicated a possible motive for the killings.
Taylor and Kylie Pifer were attending local colleges and living at home with their mother. The women were last heard from Saturday afternoon. On the 911 call released today Suzanne Taylor’s boyfriend is heard saying he had stopped by the house Saturday to drop off flowers. He thought it odd when no one answered the door, though the victims’ cars were at the house.
The 911 call recording indicates Taylor’s boyfriend, Dale, went to the house and when he did not get an answer or hear dogs barking he became suspicious. It is unclear how he gained access to the home, but when he did he opened the door to a back bedroom and saw a body.
Apparently, he called Suzanne Taylor’s boyfriend who is the one who made the emergency call.
Taylor Pifer was a senior at Kent State University where she studied fashion. Kiley Pifer attended Bowling Green State University where she recently made Dean’s List.
