Missing Woman Found Fatally Shot, Buried in Backyard; Boyfriend Wanted for Murder

An Ohio woman who was reported missing earlier this month was reportedly found fatally shot in Pennsylvania last week.

WOIO reported that an arrest warrant has been issued for Anthony Kennedy, 43, for the murder of Adrianna Taylor, 23. Kennedy was found fatally shot in the head in the backyard of a Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania, home on November 24, according to officials.

Kennedy’s family told KDKA that they last heard from her on October 8, though police in Cleveland, Ohio, did not classify her as a missing person until November 13. Police said she was living with her boyfriend in Cleveland at the time of her disappearance.

According to WKYC, Kennedy is Taylor’s live-in boyfriend. Taylor’s body was reportedly found buried in the backyard — where Kennedy was said to have been seen around the same time.

It is unclear what led authorities to the residence or how Taylor ended up in Pennsylvania. Investigators also have not disclosed where or when Taylor was fatally shot.
