Kalamazoo Woman/Wenke’s Employee Viciously Murdered By Ex-Boyfriend
There is some awful news to report from Saturday as reports are confirming the death of a 28-year-old Kalamazoo woman Taylor Dragicevich, who was brutally murdered by her ex-boyfriend on Saturday, May 20th.
Her mother released a short statement which was written by Taylor's employer after saying that the family is brokenhearted and still in shock over this senseless act of evil and the loss of a beautiful soul:
What Led Up To This Act
Taylor had recently ended a long term relationship . She was concerned for her safety and had a restraining order against her ex-boyfriend that he violated on more than one occasion. She reported these violations and did all that she could to protect herself but THE SYSTEM FAILED HER.
The employer went into detail about what occurred leading to her passing:
After going to garage sales and a movie with her mother and twin brother on Saturday, she was bringing the items in from the car when he attacked. She received CPR from her mother and EMT's on scene but couldn't be saved. In line with Taylor's generous spirit, she was an organ donor. It gives her family comfort that this tragedy may help others to live. Her ex-boyfriend has been arrested and is currently in jail.
There aren't any words that make up for the loss of someone in such a senseless act. The only hope for the family is that they have the support of the community and that the suspect is locked up for the remainder of their life. We here at Townsquare Media extend our deepest sympathies to the family.
