Chileeeeeeeeee…this is messsyyyy right here.
A man from Dunn, North Carolina, who was reportedly missing for nearly two months until his body was discovered in Harnett County on November 20, has been identified this week. According to an anonymous source, he was previously involved in a secret dating relationship with his alleged killer.
A source close to the victim, 23-year-old Tyrone Taylor, told The North Carolina Beat that the circulating story about Tyrone sleeping with his sister’s boyfriend, 26-year-old Daquan Seandre Thomas, behind her back is false.
According to the source, Tyrone and Daquan first started dating in 2016 after reportedly meeting on social media.
During that time, the source said the two men would occasionally meet up and engage in their activities, but Daquan was allegedly downlow and did not want anyone to know that he was attracted to Tyrone. The source said that Tyrone confided in several people about his fling with Daquan and Daquan’s fling with him.
The anonymous source informed us that during the time when Daquan and Tyrone were allegedly messing around, the following year in 2017, Daquan had got into some issues with a girl he was involved with in Spring Lake.
According to the source, Daquan and the girl were arguing in Spring Lake and something happened. The source said that Daquan kidnapped both of the children in the home, her daughter and his son. Daquan then left, took his son home, and then left the woman’s daughter in an abandoned mobile home.
The source said that Daquan had to serve a prison sentence, but when he reportedly returned home in 2021, he began a relationship with Tynesha Taylor, who is Tyrone’s sister.
During Tynesha’s and Daquan’s relationship, she alleged that he bound her to a chair and burned her. In a domestic violence report dated September 14, she informed the authorities that the incident occurred on August 30. She further stated that Daquan had threatened to “blow her up.”
On October 10th, Daquan was arrested in connection with the incident. He was charged with second-degree kidnapping, as well as misdemeanor counts of a*sault on a female and communicating threats.
The source informed us that they were unaware of the recent events that led to Daquan’s alleged act of violence, which resulted in the loss of Tyrone’s life.
