Cops: Florida man put prostitute in plastic bin, buried her in yard

Broward County Sheriff's Office

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) –  A man accused of killing a prostitute, putting her body in a plastic storage container and burying it in his backyard has been transferred to Florida after hiding out in Virginia, authorities say.

Broward Sheriff’s officials say 25-year-old Tyquan Pearson met 19-year-old Brittney Taylor at a South Florida motel in May after soliciting her online.

Authorities say hotel surveillance video showed Taylor enter the room.

Four hours later, the video shows Pearson leaving, pushing a stroller with a blue storage container.

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.
