The inmate slain last weekend at Stony Mountain Institution was a child killer who’d been behind bars for more than three decades.
Duane Edward Taylor, 53, has been identified by the Correctional Service of Canada as the victim. He was found unresponsive in his cell Saturday evening. Stonewall RCMP said they received a call around 10:15 p.m.
Staff members who found Taylor immediately began performing CPR, but he could not be resuscitated.
RCMP have confirmed a homicide investigation is now underway at the medium-security prison. No arrests have been made.
Taylor was found guilty of first-degree murder for the 1981 abduction, rape and killing of two-year-old April Marie Morrison in Kingston, Ont. He was given an indeterminate sentence in 1982 and had previously lost bids for parole. He was living at a halfway house just down the street from the little girl’s home.
Taylor had several previous convictions involving sexual assaults on children and had been released from jail only days before the deadly attack.
