Taylor Van Diest Murder
On Halloween 2011, Taylor Van Diest was leaving a party in the small town of Armstrong, Canada. She never came home, and was found beaten to death near a set of railroad tracks. Her death traumatized the town, especially after it was revealed that she’d sent a text to her boyfriend before the attack saying she was being “creeped on.”
Police eventually used DNA found under Taylor’s fingernails to arrest Matthew Foerster for carrying out the murder, and his father, Stephen, for helping him cover it up.
