Man accused of killing missing Cleveland woman found dead in Wilkinsburg turns himself in to police

WILKINSBURG — After a several-day search from Ohio to Pittsburgh, a man accused of killing a woman and burying her body in Wilkinsburg turned himself in to Allegheny County police with his attorney on Wednesday.

Investigators say Anthony Kennedy shot and killed Adrianna Taylor. Kennedy is represented by local defense attorney, Blaine Jones.

More than 100 miles away, and a month and a half after she disappeared, police found Taylor’s body buried at a home in Wilkinsburg on Thanksgiving night.

Sources tell Channel 11 that around 9:30 p.m., police found her body in a trash bag covered in cement and dumped in a hole in the backyard.

Surveillance video shows a man pulling up to the home, getting something out of the trunk and going to the backyard several times.

Hours later, police arrived and dug up her body.

Taylor was missing out of Cleveland, where she lived with her boyfriend, Kennedy.

Sources say Cleveland investigators believe Kennedy shot and killed her there, then brought her body to his sister’s home in Wilkinsburg in October, where he’s accused of burying her.

They believe that on Thanksgiving, he returned to the burial site. That same night, police in Cleveland issued a warrant for his arrest on an aggravated murder charge.
