Oakland County Sheriff's investigators say they have evidence linking a convicted drug dealing ex-con to the crime. Bobby Lee Taylor, 42, now faces charges for murder and criminal sexual conduct.

Lane had just visited her sister the day before she was murdered. Investigators say Rosalind did not know Bobby Lee Taylor, they believe he simply saw her and suddenly decided to attacker her. Rosalind was raising her 3 children, a 13-year-old boy, a 6-year-old boy and a 9-month-old baby girl. The family is working on setting up a fund to help the children.
