Police Seek Two U of M Students in Taylor Slaying

Posted By on Thu, Oct 4, 2007 at 4:00 AM

From the U of M Daily Helmsman's Nevin Batiwalla:

Two University of Memphis students are being sought by police for information in connection with the murder of Taylor Bradford, including one woman who Bradford had filed a restraining order against last year.

It is unclear whether they are being sought as witnesses or suspects.

According to Shelby County court records, Bradford petitioned a judge to issue an order of protection to protect him from Erica Bell, a U of M education major. A temporary order of protection was granted. However, at a hearing on Nov. 28, 2006, the petition was denied.

Bell's address on the court documents was listed as "University of Memphis Complex" and her permanent address as Nashville. In the most recent student directory her address is listed as Antioch, Tenn., a suburb of Nashville. Bradford graduated from Antioch High School where he lettered in three sports.

Police were also seeking Devin Jefferson, a psychology major, for information. On June 25, Jefferson was arrested for second-degree murder, according to Shelby County court records. However, he was released without charge later that day.

There's much more on the story at the Helmsman website.
