During the interview, Walker reveals how he learned of his girlfriend’s death. He says the police never told him that Taylor had been pronounced dead and instead had learned of the news while sitting in jail watching the local newscast.
“I never really got told directly. I saw it on the news,” Walker said. “I was in the cell and it was on the news and it said, “One female dead” they confirmed it. I didn’t know what condition she was in when I left.”
Walker went on to explain what other witnesses in the apartment complex have repeatedly said, that police never identified themselves before breaking down Taylor’s door and unleashing a hail of gunfire.
