Men visiting Miami Beach drugged and raped woman who later died, police say
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – Two men vacationing in South Beach for spring break are charged with drugging and raping a woman who was later found dead in a hotel.
Police arrested Dorian Taylor, 24, and Evoire Collier, 21, both from North Carolina.
Detectives obtained surveillance video showing them entering the Albion Hotel with the 24-year-old victim from Pennsylvania — and later leaving without her. Investigators say the woman was found partly nude and lifeless inside her room at the Albion on James Avenue on Thursday.
Investigators are trying to determine if she died of an overdose from a pill the men gave her.
If that is determined to be the case, the suspects could face a manslaughter or murder charge.
They’re also accused of stealing her credit cards and using them at several locations across Miami Beach. Detectives say they obtained surveillance video of one of the suspects using the woman’s credit cards at local shops.
