“I still have to regularly get my concussion checked… I have bolts, and steel, and a steel plate I’m gonna have forever in my arm… I’m gonna have…gonna have to deal with this the rest of my life,” she said.
Photos of Taylor’s injuries were leaked and made national headlines. She said she was injured after Wheeler, her then-boyfriend, attacked her. Taylor said the pair dated for six months with barely an argument.
According to Taylor, that all changed on January 22—starting with a text from Wheeler that he’d shaved his head.
“He loved, just loved his long hair. Refused to cut it. And it surprised me, and it worried me,” Taylor recalled.

“I came home. And Chad was trying to play it off as if he just kinda cut his hair. But then, as time went on throughout the day, he started going downhill emotionally.”
Taylor later told police it was the beginning of a “manic episode,” adding she knew Wheeler suffered from bipolar disorder. Taylor said Wheeler then “snapped into a dark place.”
“He, he stood up. He told me to bow down. And I asked him why. And he didn’t respond. He just told me to bow down again. And I told him no. She said and he immediately grabbed my neck. And that’s when things began,” she tearfully said.
“Do you recall what happened after that?” Duncan asked.
Wheeler was arrested on Jan. 23 after King County police received a call from Taylor. According to police reports, it took three officers and two sets of handcuffs to restrain Wheeler. Authorities said Wheeler kept apologizing as he was arrested.
Wheeler released a statement on Twitter the same day, saying he was “deeply sorry for the pain and suffering that I have caused.
King County court ordered Wheeler to remain in the area while on electronic home detention until his trial, which is set for April 6.
