I'm going to take her out,' Mc Atasney allegedly told Taylor.All three attended Neptune High School together and Taylor even took Stern to junior prom as his date. Mc Atasney reportedly later called back saying 'Dude, I did it'.He then asked Taylor to help him out by going over to Stern's house to hide her body and find his cellphone, which he left behind.Taylor reportedly followed his roommate's orders, and Doyle says he hid the victim's body in some bushes in her backyard and searched for the phone but couldn't find it.
