Suzanne Taylor was found stabbed to death in her Brunswick, Ohio home, along with her daughters Taylor and Kylie Pifer. On Sunday, authorities discovered the sad scene and have named a suspect in the triple homicide. The suspect is George Brinkman, who has been arrested by authorities after a nine-hour police standoff on Monday night leading into Tuesday morning.
The 45-year-old Suzanne Taylor graduated from Valley Forge High School in 1990. She later attended Hiram College, and graduated with degrees in sociology, political science and psychology.
In 2013, Taylor began her job as a real estate appraiser for Forsythe Appraisals. The former mother of two has also been an administrator at REO Property Consultants since 2012.
Longtime friend Rhonda Whitelock is hurt by the sudden loss of Suzanne and her two young daughters.
“Forty years of friendship is hard, it’s hard to let go, it’s hard to wrap my head around all of this, that she’s gone and her children are gone,” Rhonda told WJW-TV. “I want to be able to remember her life and be able to talk and share some memories that are good, and I want people to know what a great person she was and how fun she was, always laughing, always positive.”
Brianna Wadsworth, a childhood friend of Taylor’s daughter, went on Facebook and wrote about how much Suzanne meant to her.
“Suzanne is over all an amazing lady and I’m glad I got to have her in my life growing. I love you guys with all my heart but know you’ll be missed dearly.”
