The Oakland Police Department is currently seeking Taylor Morris Teaford on a warrant charging him with the alleged 1969 murder of a woman at the St. Louis Hotel in Oakland. Detectives report that Teaford allegedly entered the hotel which was located at the current site of the North Alameda County Jail. While in room #15, he allegedly beat her beyond recognition and then strangled her to death with an article of her own clothing.
In 1967, Teaford was also accused of allegedly murdering his own grandmother, wounding his sister and shooting at a Madera County Deputy Sheriff during his escape. Madera County had a warrant for his arrest but it has since been recalled. The victim in the Oakland murder case has never been identified.
One photo is of Teaford about the time of the murder and the other photo has been age enhanced. The third sketch is of the unknown female victim.
