Spring breakers arrested for allegedly drugging, raping woman who later died

Two Miami Spring Breakers Arrested for Drugging Raping Woman Who Later Died

Evoire Colier, 21, and Dorian Taylor, 24, have also been accused of stealing victim Christine Englehardt's credit cards to spend money during their trip to South Beach.

Police responded to a South Beach hotel where the victim, a 24-year-old who was visiting from Pennsylvania, was found dead and partially unclothed on a bed, the Herald reported.

"He couldn't even pick up the phone to call police or 911 after they did whatever it is they did to her", Glazer said.

When detectives pulled up surveillance footage, they saw two men early on Thursday morning leading the obviously incapacitated woman into the hotel.

The men, both from Greensboro, N.C., are facing charges including burglary, sexual battery and the fraudulent use of a credit card.

Both men have been arrested and charged.

The men left less than an hour later, police said. Collier was apprehended on Ocean Drive, wearing the same trousers as seen in the hotel security recording.

While no cause of death has been confirmed, the Miami-Dade Medical Examiner's Office said Monday it was conducting tests to determine if Englehardt's death resulted from a "green pill" the men provided, NBC says. Collier and Taylor will face an arraignment in about three weeks. At the time of writing, authorities are trying to figure out if the woman overdosed on a pill given to her by the suspects. Prosecutor Ayana Harris claimed at a bail hearing the next day that the men should be kept in custody until their trial and, depending on the cause of death, they could face more serious charges.

He allegedly said "that he went along with [Taylor] as they planned to have sex with the victim", the report said.

Once at the woman's hotel room, the men had to hold up Englehardt, as Miami Beach Detective Luis Alsina testified in court on Monday (March 22), stating, "The defendant was holding her from behind, holding her by the neck so she could stand". He still had the woman's phone and some green pills in his possession.
