At this time, Taylor's cause of death hasn't been released to the public. This may be because police are treating this as a potential homicide and there appear to be persons of interest involved in the case.

Teen Mom fans likely remember Taylor from Teen Mom 2, on which she was former cast member Jenelle's friend. However, they drifted apart a bit after the show. Taylor also had two small children of her own.

Jenelle shared with In Touch Weekly that she is helping Taylor's family, despite the fact that the two friends had grown apart in recent years. She explained that Taylor's death is "affecting the entire community" where Jenelle lives.

After the news broke of Taylor's sudden death, Jenelle took to Facebook to share her thoughts and prayers for her former friend's family.

"I wanted to see you eventually flourish as a woman from a distance, but was always rooting for you," Jenelle wrote. "I don’t know what happened but I am very saddened to hear this news and hope you’re resting easy. I’m so sorry and sending your family prayers."

Jenelle added that she feels "awful" for not responding to an apparent message from Taylor from March 2022. But, the former Teen Mom star added in her post, at the time she felt as though Taylor "wasn't doing her best."

While that's cryptic enough on its own, Taylor's unfortunate and unexpected death still remains a mystery for now.
