Taylor Nathan Talmage

Age 14

Grand Forks, North Dakota

Siblings without their bookworm brother

He lived in a quiet neighborhood with his mom and two siblings. His family’s home was on 12th Street, close to elementary school his younger siblings attended.

A bookworm, he loved reading about animals, especially dinosaurs and snakes. He enjoyed his pet guinea pigs and playing video games.  

Tyler Nathan Talmage, just a month from his 15th birthday, was shot and killed, along with his siblings, allegedly by their mother on May 3, 2018, in Grand Forks, North Dakota.
