Who is Sativa Transue's boyfriend? Taylor Allen who beat her to bloody pulp was abusive
SPOKANE, WASHINGTON: Police in Spokane, Washington arrested 31-year-old Taylor Allen in connection with the murder of his girlfriend Sativa Transue in a hotel in Cancun, Mexico. According to reports, Allen beat Transue "to a bloody pulp" after the two got into a drunken argument on November 26. He was arrested briefly by Mexican police but managed to return to the US, where he was detained by local police.
Details about the incident are scarce at the moment, with some contradictory reports emerging. We do know that the couple got drunk and into a violent argument at the All Ritmo Resort. At some point, Allen then threatened to jump from the balcony of their room. Then at some point, the fight got physical and she ended up being brutally beaten to death. Later that afternoon, Transue's body was foundby authorities, leading shortly afterward to the arrest of Allen.
It's unclear how he managed to return to the US, and if he was charged after his arrest in Cancun, but it appears this isn't Allen's first time. Here's everything we know about him, and how he ended up allegedly killing Transue.
Who is Taylor Allen?
Little is known about the 31-year-old, who dated Transue for around three years. We couldn't find a LinkedIn or Facebook profile linked to him, so it's unclear where he works, or what his history is. All we know is that he was arrested for fourth-degree assault in 2012. Further details could not be obtained, so it's unclear if he was convicted. But it appears he continued to display violent behavior in his three years with Transue.
An Instagram profile in Allen's name shows a March 2016 photo of a totaled car, and from the comments, it seems he was involved in the accident. The account also seems to indicate Allen worked in construction, with several photos at sites with the hashtags #work and #worklife. It also appears he had an affinity for alcohol, with several photos of bottles. It's an issue that he appeared to have in his relationship with Transue as well.
"He would drink so much that she called it like a different personality. She would call it (his) ‘Beast'," Traunsue's sister Mykayla told The Daily Beast. The girl's mother, Jayme, also acknowledged Allen had issues in the past. "He was very emotionally abusive. He checked her phone, and we couldn’t text her because it went to her computer and he would check that," she added.
But despite that, Allen and Transue remained a couple for three years, until the fateful night in Cancun. On November 27, a maid found Transue's body in the room, which led to the arrest of Allen. It's unclear when and where he was arrested, but on November 29, Cancun police tweeted a photo of him in their station wearing a hotel robe. "Elements of the Quintana Roo Benito Juárez Police, managed to arrest Taylor "N", for the crime of femicide," they tweeted along with a photo of Allen, blurring out his face.

It's unclear what happened next, but reportedly Allen was allowed to fly back to the US. The Sun reported on December 2 that he was arrested by police in Spokane, Washington, but did not elaborate on why. It's unclear if he will be extradited to Mexico, as of now further details have not been revealed by either Cancun police or the State Department. In a statement to The Beast, the department said, "We are closely monitoring local authorities’ investigation into the cause of death and are providing the family all appropriate consular assistance."
