Nashville Fugitive, Corey Taylor, Arrested by Chicago Police

Chicago police Wednesday night apprehended a fugitive from Nashville who was wanted for terrorizing a family inside their Glenrose Avenue apartment on Monday evening in Nashville.
       
Corey Taylor, 26, was spotted by a Chicago officer inside the victim’s 2005 Chevrolet Malibu.  He was taken into custody without incident and is being held on Nashville warrants charging five counts of aggravated kidnapping and one count of aggravated robbery.
       
The 71-year-old victim reported that he met a man, known to him only as Corey (subsequently identified as Corey Taylor) at a bus station downtown a few weeks prior.  He had allowed Taylor to sleep on his couch for a few days prior to a fight breaking out Monday.  During the fight, Taylor was alleged to have pulled a knife, threatened to kill the 71-year-old and his family and prevented them from leaving the apartment.  Taylor ultimately took several watches, a cell phone, cash and the victim’s car keys before fleeing.
       
Follow up investigation by Detectives Dennis Shepherd and Rick Heiman led to the positive identification of Corey Taylor as the suspect.  It was learned that Taylor had ties to Chicago, which prompted an alert being sent to Illinois authorities.
       
Taylor’s return to Nashville is pending.
