Man Charged in Missing Dover Woman's Death

Posted: Updated:

Delaware State Police charged a 21 year old Leipsic, Delaware man in connection with the death of Taylor M. Owens, 19 of Dover.

Owens had been the center of a missing person's investigation since Wednesday, September 4, 2013 after family members contacted State Police when she disappeared. She had not been seen or heard from since August 31.

Yesterday Troopers were notified of the discovery of possible charred human remains located by area residents in a wooded area along the 200 block of Denny Street, Leipsic.

Detectives say they were able to connect Tony Mozick Jr. to the death of Owens, which occurred on August 31, 2013 after a fight in a home that they shared in the 200 block of Denny Street. Police say Mozick then moved the body to the wooded area where he tried to dispose of the remains by burning.

Mozick was arrested earlier this morning and charged with the death of Owens. He was charged with Murder First Degree and Abusing a Corpse. He was remanded to James T. Vaughn Correctional Center without bail.
