WILLIAMSBURG, Brooklyn (PIX11) — Police are on the hunt for a man who authorities say is connected to two separate murders — just weeks apart.
The person of interest is believed to have been in a relationship with both the victims, authorities said. Timothy Taylor is wanted for questioning in the alleged murder of 37-year-old Theresa Gregg, police said. Gregg was a mom and officer with the city’s Department of Homeless Services.
Domestic violence advocates working with the family told PIX11 News she was in a relationship with the suspect and the two lived together.
Taylor, 35, is also a person of interest in another alleged murder. His ex-wife was found dead on Sunday, police said. An alleged domestic dispute between Taylor and 44-year-old Tishawn Folkes-Taylor happened in Schenectady, where Tishawn lived.
Tishawn was found with trauma to her body. Her cause of death will be determined after an autopsy.
