A woman died after being drugged and raped in her Miami hotel room by two men on spring break. The men allegedly admitted to giving the woman a green pill on the way to her room, but the connection between the drug and her death is unclear.
Evoire Collier, 21, and Dorian Taylor, 24, are behind bars facing charges of burglary with battery, petty theft, sexual battery, and credit card fraud. The men are accused of drugging, sexually assaulting, and stealing from 24-year-old Christine Englehardt, who was later found dead in her Miami Beach hotel room. Police allege the suspects from North Carolina stole the money to spend it on their spring break trip.
Surveillance footage captured the men entering the hotel with Englehardt at about 1 a.m. on March 18, 2021. At a bond hearing Monday, a detective testified that Englehardt appeared to be in no condition to give any kind of consent and at one point had to be held up by one of the men as they made their way to her room. Thirty minutes later, Collier and Taylor were allegedly captured on camera leaving the hotel alone.
If the drug they gave her is proven to have played a role in her death, they could also be facing a manslaughter or murder charge.
