NEW BOSTON, Texas — A pregnant 22-year-old woman has died after an assailant cut her baby from her womb sometime Friday morning at a residence in New Boston, according to Bowie County officials.
The woman was approximately seven-and-a-half months pregnant and the infant did not survive. A female suspect was taken into custody today in Oklahoma.
Multiple agencies are investigating including New Boston Police Department, Bowie County Sheriff’s Office, Texas Department of Public Safety and Texarkana, Texas, Police Department
Suspect: Taylor Morton
Victim- Reagan Hancock
Taylor and Reagan were friends on Facebook.
Even though the names of the victim and killer have not been released publicly, they are slowly emerging through social media.
People are also stating that there is no way Taylor could have been pregnant:
Taylor posted often about her pregnancy on social media:
It seems like a few people may have been doubting Taylor’s pregnancy:
People are now discussing the involvement of Wade, Taylor’s boyfriend in the case:
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.

October 14 – Some new mugshots for Taylor were released, along with information about the charges against her
On October 15, the probable cause affidavit was released:
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.

Hello…I am sure by now you have more information on the story you wrote today about girl who was cut open for her baby..Women who did the crime was named Taylor Morton…she grew up here in Mount Pleasant…she was caught when she stopped at the hospital in Idabel okla. because the baby was not breathing..the staff could tell she had not just had this baby and called the police…Monday we had a bomb threat at Titus Regional Hospital…it is believed that she made that call in an attempt to steal a baby from the maturity ward…if you have this information please disregard…thank you
She grew up in Mt pleasant? I grew up in sulphur springs…is she related to Mason Morton?
I grew up in Sulphur Springs and wondered if she was related to Mandy Morton.
Judging by her fb it shows they communicate so i think so
This site is so well formatted. Thank you.
This website has a good 2 mins to take down the images I took of Taylor and the information or I’m contacting my lawyer. You didn’t ask for permission and they are protected under copyright laws. 2 mins.
Jesus, relax… Which photos?
I removed the photos I think you’re referring to.
Were the photos taken from the internet? Did you give the photographer proper credit for the pictures? If so, I believe that you followed the Fair Use laws and did not infringe on her copyrights. I am not a lawyer and this is not legal advice. I just don’t think you did anything wrong.
I agree that we didn’t do anything wrong – but I was feeling nice, considering the photos weren’t overly exciting ones to begin with. Lol
Drama drama drama… you could have asked nicely.
They were screenshots Shanna calm down
Copy right laws don’t exist with images that are shared in a public forum – such as Facebook, or Twitter, or Instagram. Let me know how that works out for you though! 😂😂😂
The girl is a murderer and she stole a baby you shouldn’t mind if they used the pictures so maybe this won’t happen to anyone eles. I know not by her but something like this in general. Something must be wrong with you if you don’t won’t them to put her picture out there. Its not your fault she lied and acted like she was pregnant. She is sick and needs help and now she will get the help.
What a bitch. You enabled a MURDERER to keep up a charade. Don’t get indignant now.
Scott – the pics were just screenshots from the photographer’s public page. All credited to her.
