Two North Carolina vacationing in South Florida during this year’s spring break season have been charged with drugging and raping a woman who later died. Evoire Collier, 21, and Dorian Taylor, 24, both of Greensboro, N.C., were arrested Sunday after using the victim’s credit cards at a Miami Beach liquor store, authorities said. Charges against the men could be upgraded to manslaughter or murder if it is determined the woman died as a result of an overdose.
According to a police report, Collier and Taylor were charged in Miami Beach, Fla. with stealing credit cards belonging to the victim, identified as 24-year-old woman visiting from Pennsylvania. Police said Collier admitted he and Taylor had sex with the woman in a room at the Albion Hotel after she had been administered “a green pill” believed to be a powerful painkiller. She was later found dead on the room’s bed, the report said.
On Sunday, Miami officials extended the Thursday-through-Sunday 8 p.m. curfew to April 12 — the official end of the spring break season. Miami Beach Interim City Manager Raul Aguila said more than 1,000 arrests have been made since February, including 350 on felony charges, and more than 80 firearms seized.
