Suspect Arrested for Child Molestation Charges – Detectives Seek Additional Persons with Information
Spokane Valley Sexual Assault Unit (SAU) Detectives arrested a suspect for sexually molesting a juvenile male at an apartment complex in Spokane Valley, booking him into jail for three felony charges.
Investigators believe there could be additional persons who live at the complex or frequent the location that may have information regarding the suspect’s interactions with juveniles or have information that could be helpful to this investigation.
On May 25, 2021, at approximately 3:20 pm., Spokane Valley Deputies responded to the Eagle Point Apartments located at 2718 N. Bowdish for the report of a young juvenile male who had been molested.
The mother of the boy provided information that “Kevin”, later identified as 23-year-old Kevin J. Taylor-Nunley, went with her son from the apartment complex’s playground into a vacant apartment where he molested the young child. This all occurred (within approximately 30 minutes) while the child played a short distance from their apartment.
Sexual Assault Unit Detectives and Forensic Unit Technicians were called to the scene to continue the investigation.
With the information learned at the scene, a search warrant to collect evidence from the vacant apartment, along with samples of DNA from Taylor-Nunley, was obtained.
SAU Detective Tom Keys contacted Taylor-Nunley and advised him of his rights and the search warrant authorizing the collection of DNA samples. Taylor-Nunley declined to answer questions, and DNA samples were collected for evidentiary testing.
On May 26, 2021, at approximately 2:30 pm., SAU Detectives and Deputies returned to the apartments and arrested Taylor-Nunley on three felony charges.
Taylor-Nunley was transported and booked into the Spokane County Jail for Rape of a Child 1st Degree, Child Molestation 1st Degree, and Kidnapping 1st Degree.
SAU Detective Keys would like to talk to anyone who lives at the complex or frequents the location, that may have information regarding Taylor-Nunley’s interactions with juveniles, or have information that could be helpful to this investigation. If you have information, you are asked to call SAU Detective Keys at 509-477-3474, reference #10066151.
Knowing Taylor-Nunley’s name may not be known to persons who could potentially provide valuable information regarding this investigation, the Sheriff’s Office is releasing these photos of the suspect.
