Theresa Phillips of Drive Away Motors says she knew Taylor for five years and never noticed anything suspicious. He washed cars on the lot and also worked as her personal assistant.

"He was a nice guy. We never suspected anything, we didn't know anything. We never had any reason. He was around my kids on a regular basis," Phillips said.

According to Phillips, Taylor was also up-front about his criminal past. She says she knew about his arson charge and wanted to give him a second chance.
