A memorial service has been held for Taylor Robinson, the 19 year-old who went missing from her home health care job, and whose remains were discovered earlier this month in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
Hundreds of family members, friends and supporters attended the service Saturday afternoon at Mount Calvary Baptist Church on Akron's near West Side.
Many of those people were wearing purple, Taylor's favorite color.
Rev. Melvin Brown is Taylor's cousin, and said she had a positive attitude that lasted even when things weren't going well for her.
"Taylor always brought laughter, happiness to everybody that she was around," Rev. Brown, of Campbell's Gospel Temple Baptist Church, told reporters after Saturday's service. "It's just her resilient smile, even in the midst of going through things...even as a young person, she went through things also."
Rev. Brown says his cousin would always say "you know, it's not that bad", and "she'd always have a smile for everybody." He says he wants to make sure people know that Taylor was "a very loving individual...she loved people, and she loved sharing."
Akron Police and the FBI are trying to find out what happened to Taylor Robinson.
They're getting help from two private investigators, Tim Dimoff of SACS Consulting, and Thomas Fields of Accurate Investigations, who have added their own money to make the reward for information leading to an arrest in the case a total of $7,000.
Dimoff and Fields say they've narrowed down the number of people possibly involved in Taylor's death to two.
Dimoff says he believes Taylor's death was an accident involving someone she knew well.
"I believe they started out in a very good conversation, casual conversation," Dimoff told reporters on Saturday. "I think that conversation got out of hand, it got physical, and I believe still that she was killed accidentally, at that location, and I think she was moved."
Dimoff says thus, he believes there is likely at least one other person involved.
"As a person that maybe committed the crime, needed help to move the body," Dimoff says. "I find it very hard to take a body in a car, out of a car, up a trail, off the side of the trail, and dump it in the woods by yourself."
Investigator Fields says anyone who helped move Taylor's body needs to talk now.
"We're coming for you, we have very good leads," Fields says. "Now is the time for that person or persons who assisted in moving Taylor's body to come forward."
Dimoff and Fields stressed that the information comes from their own investigation, and they're helping law enforcement with what could potentially be important information to help the probe.
Police and FBI investigators have not released information about the progress of their investigation.
