Police are asking for help to solve the death of Darrell Taylor, an Elkhart man whose body was discovered in the St. Joseph River five years ago.

On July 31, 2008, the body of Taylor, 42, was discovered on the bank of the river at McNaughton Park. He had last been seen alive four days earlier.

During the investigation, police recovered a green 1996 Chevy Blazer near the McNaughton Park boat ramp they believe to be linked to Taylor’s case.

Crime Stoppers is asking for any information on the death of Taylor. Information that leads to an arrest could lead to a cash reward of up to $1,000.

 A 15-year-old boy, seen sitting on a stretcher center, who stowed away in the wheel well of a flight from San Jose, Calif., to Maui is loaded into an ambulance at Kahului Airport in Kahului, Maui, Hawaii Sunday afternoon, April 20, 2014. The boy survived the trip halfway across the Pacific Ocean unharmed despite frigid temperatures at 38,000 feet and a lack of oxygen, FBI and airline officials said. FBI spokesman Tom Simon in Honolulu told The Associated Press on Sunday night that the boy was questioned by the FBI after being discovered on the tarmac at the Maui airport with no identification.
