10/10 update from the McCurtain Gazette-News:
Taylor was on her way to the hospital when she was pulled over and said she had just given birth and her baby wasn’t breathing. The trooper did CPR on the baby and called for an ambulance and when they got to the hospital, a doctor treated her and knew she hadn’t given birth.
Police in New Boston were called for a deceased pregnant female. Reagan allegedly had been beaten to death and stabbed and the baby was cut from the womb.
Police then went back to contact Taylor and she admitted to murdering and kidnapping the infant. She claims she only knew the deceased by her first name.

UPDATE- 10th December 2020
“Taylor Parker, aka Taylor Morton and Taylor Wacasey, was indicted by a Bowie County grand jury Thursday on charges of capital murder and kidnapping in the deaths of Reagan Michelle Simmons Hancock and her unborn daughter, Braxlynn Sage Hancock. The capital murder charge involves the mother’s death while the kidnapping charge involves the abduction of the unborn infant. An information charging Parker with murder in the baby’s death filed earlier this year by First Assistant District Attorney Kelley Crisp remains pending.”
Bowie County District Attorney Jerry Rochelle announced Friday at a hearing in New Boston that his office will seek the death penalty for Taylor Rene Parker in the death of Reagan Simmons Hancock.
Texarkana attorney Jeff Harrelson entered pleas of not guilty on Parker’s behalf to capital murder and kidnapping. First Assistant District Attorney Kelley Crisp asked 202nd District Judge John Tidwell to revoke Taylor’s current $5 million in bail due to the charges and possible death sentence.
Harrelson said it is unlikely Parker can make the $5 million bond but objected to her having no bond set at all. Tidwell scheduled a hearing for March 5.
