Wood County — On Tuesday, Investigators with the Collin County Sheriff’s Office obtained arrest warrants for Alonzo Grayson, Jr and Tina Ann Taylor for 1st degree murder. Both are accused of murdering Bobby Ray Taylor, the brother of Tina Taylor, 28 years ago.
On January 4, 1984, Bobby Taylor was reported missing to the Frisco Police Department. His body was found 3 days later at a rock pit near Preston Road and Eldorado Parkway in Collin County. He had been shot 5 times and hidden behind a large rock. Originally Grayson and Taylor were interviewed and claimed they witnessed Rogelio Elizondo commit the murder. Mr. Elizondo was arrested, but No Billed by the Grand Jury and the case went cold.
In October of last year the Sheriff’s Office received information about the murder that was not available during the initial investigation. An investigator was assigned the case, and with the new information, obtained additional information that led to the confessions of Grayson and Taylor. They also admitted to falsely accusing Rogelio Elizondo. Unfortunately, Mr. Elizondo died in March of this year prior to the arrest of his accusers.
Tina Taylor, 45 of Mineola Texas was arrested and is currently in Wood County jail.
Alonzo Grayson, Jr 45 of Dallas, Texas was arrested and is being held in the Collin County Detention Facility.
Both are held on $100,000 bond.
