Help Find Taylor Samson

William Sadeson has been found guilty of 1st degree murder of Taylor Samsom.

Please help Taylor's mother and family find Taylor. 
Funds are being raised to deploy cadaver dogs, private investigators and search efforts.

 Taylor Samson went missing on August 15, 2015 and has not been seen since. His mom has never stopped looking for him. This bright young twenty two year old Dalhousie student was lured to the apartment of William Sandeson on that fateful night. He was shot in the back of the head or neck and was seen slumped over bled out, in Sandeson's apartment by eyewitnesses. Sandeson asked the eyewitnesses to bring his car around, which they claim they refused to do. Sandeson managed to remove Taylor from his apartment likely to the trunk of his car, and clean up the massive amount of blood. He tried to cover his tracks by sending text messages to Taylor's phone after he had already been murdered. Sandeson disappeared for three and a half hours from 6 am until 9:30 the morning after Taylor was killed. This is when he likely hid Taylor's body. He hid evidence at his brother's home and at his parents home to include drugs, blood soaked towels and a large black duffle bag. This black duffle bag is what police believe Sandeson transported Taylor's body in. It had hair, blood and scuff marks along the bottom as well as a ripped strap. Sandeson made up four different stories to police ranging from he had not seen Taylor at all, to someone else snuck into the apartment and shot him.

Police searched the Sandeson farm and other areas for almost a week without finding Taylor Samson, despite the evidence they found. Taylor's mom Linda Boutilier, has been searching for her son since the day he went missing. In the days immediately after August 15, Linda and Taylor's friends searched dumpsters for blocks and blocks around Sandeson's apartment looking for Taylor or at least a clue. She has searched tirelessly along the sides of the Trans Canada Hwy and many many other places. Her goal, to bring her son home and give him a proper resting place.

Taylor's mom is going to continue to search for her son until she finds him. You too can help search for Taylor.

“I’m not going to stop until I find Taylor,” says his mom.
"Samson's mother, Linda Boutilier, marked the one-year anniversary by writing on her son's Facebook page: "If it takes me til my last breath, I am bringing you home."

The police are very dedicated to finding Taylor Samson. However after two years, they cannot allocate their resources on a full time basis which is desperately needed. Linda Boutilier is in need of deploying her own cadaver dogs, private investigators, search teams and more. Cadaver dogs trained specifically to find human remains. These dogs can detect human remains up to 10 feet deep in the ground, and longer than 60 years after a person's death. There will be a lot of expenses associated with hiring these experts. An undertaking and nightmare that no parent ever wants to endure.

Please help in assisting Linda and her family being able to locate Taylor, and bringing him home to be put to rest.
