Collinsville Police continue to investigate the suspicious death of a man in the city last week. 68-year-old Daniel Taylor was found dead in his home last Wednesday just days after having lunch with family members. Investigators say evidence points them to a likely homicide in the case.
The Major Case Squad was called in to help with the investigation, but it was disbanded on Sunday with Collinsville Police detectives continuing the case. Authorities say Taylor suffered forced trauma but would not release how they believe Taylor died. They also believe the victim knew his killer and police continue to speak to those who knew Taylor. The victim had lunch with family members on December 6, and police believe he died sometime between the 6th and 7th. Anyone with information on the case can still call Collinsville Police at 344-2131 or Crimestoppers at 1-866-371-8477.
