Police describe her phone call as frantic.  Officers responded and were on the scene for several hours, knocking on neighbors doors and painstakingly searching Taylor's home.

Police say they are looking into robbery as one possible motive.

Family members say Taylor had returned to St. Louis recently after living in Iowa for several years.  They say he had been in the home on Valley Drive for just a couple of weeks.
