Warren Taylor

A wrongful death lawsuit is filed against an Osage County man accused of a double homicide.

Warren Taylor, 62, is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of armed criminal action for allegedly murdering Leonard and Pauline Gerloff at their home in Chamois on July 23.

It was last Friday when three family members of the Gerloffs filed the lawsuit against Taylor. 

Investigators have previously stated they have both surveillance video and a witness that put Taylor at the scene.  On the night of the murders, officers located Taylor’s truck outside a local bar with blood on a fender. 

No motive for the murders has been released.
