An otherwise cold case was 'heated up' by DNA evidence last year and has another North Carolina man fighting for his freedom and facing sex crimes charges. According to the police report a woman was sexually assaulted by two men after they first forced her into an unknown vehicle and taken to an unknown location.
A cold case unit from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police department recently arrested a man for a kidnapping and rape that allegedly took place 20 years ago. The suspect, Juan Taylor, now 45, has an existing criminal record. He was convicted of second degree murder for the death of an 82-year-old man that occurred six years before the alleged sexual assault.
