Police say that Florida man Tyquan Pearson murdered a teen girl that he solicited online for sex, later burying her body in his backyard, according to NBC Miami

Brittany Taylor was last seen entering a hotel room. About four hours later, Pearson was allegedly seen leaving the hotel room with a large large stroller and a blue container.

"Detectives believe Taylor’s lifeless body was inside that container," Broward Sheriff's Office officials said.

Pearson's girlfriend picked him up from the hotel, where she was told that he needed to head to a storage unit to place the various items. Police interviewed Pearson after Taylor's brother reported her missing. Pearson admitted to soliciting Taylor and claimed that Taylor remained in the hotel room after he left.

Detectives searched Pearson's home and found blue plastic coming out of the ground. They dug up the blue container and allegedly discovered Taylor's decomposing corpse inside.

The motive for the murder remains unclear, but he has been officially charged in the case. According to CBS Miami, Pearson will be extradited Broward County in the near future.
