FARMINGTON, N.M. (KRQE) – Police in Farmington have named a person of interest in a 24-year-old cold case. Patsy Taylor, 52, was killed during a morning run on July 10th, 1991. She was beaten to death by a metal object.
Now police tell the Daily Times that Stephen Freeman may have known what happened. Freeman was a suspect in two rapes a week before Taylor’s death but he was never charged.
The unfortunate part in all this is we may never know if Freeman knew something about Taylor because he killed himself in December while being held at the San Juan County Detention Center on drug charges.
If you have any information about Taylor’s murder call police.
