Man killed prostitute, buried her body in yard, police say
Tyquan Pearson arrested in Virginia
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – A man hired a prostitute to meet him at a hotel, killed her, put her body in a plastic container and buried it in his backyard, according to authorities.
Broward sheriff's officials said Tyquan Pearson, 25, met Brittney Taylor, 19, at a South Florida motel in May after soliciting her online.
Authorities said hotel surveillance video showed Taylor enter the room. Four hours later, the video shows Pearson leaving, pushing a stroller with a blue storage container, officials said.
The Sun Sentinel reports the investigation led detectives to a home where they found Taylor's remains inside the container and buried in the backyard.
Pearson was arrested on a warrant in Norfolk, Virginia and was transferred on Tuesday to South Florida, where he is being held without bond on a murder charge.
It's unclear whether he'd retained an attorney who could comment on the latest charge.
