The Codiac Regional RCMP say that "foul play is not suspected at this time" in the death of a 21 year old Moncton woman. Police say they responded to a complaint that a woman had been found unconscious, at approximately 3:40 p.m. on July 1, 2017, at 401 Elmwood Drive. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. The investigation continues.
If you're on social media it's possible that you heard the woman's name in the last couple of days...The Times & Transcript is reporting that the woman was 21 year old Taylor Estabrooks...they did an interview with her mom who says Taylor just recently completed a 10 month program at the Portage Atlantic addiction rehabilitation centre in Fredericton...and she says the family believes that Taylor had a relapse with tragic results. Krista MacKinnon wants their tragedy to serve as a warning to other parents about the dangers of drug addiction. The family is asking anyone who knew Taylor or wants to make a donation to do so in her memory to Portage Atlantic.
