Earlier today, around 12:15 p.m.m Steven Elliot Laffin, 38, led investigators to a site off Highway 7 where human remains were located.
The site is in the woods off Inletview Drive in East Chezzetcook.
The Halifax Regional Police/RCMP Integrated Major Crime Unit as well as the medical examiner are currently on the scene.
Taylor disappeared July 31, 2010.
In a seperate case, Laffin pleaded guilty to kidnapping, aggravated assault, uttering threats to cause bodily harm and unlawful confinement last October at Nova Scotia Supreme Court in Halifax.
Those charges stem from an incident on Aug. 16, 2010, when a prostitute escaped from the trunk of a moving car on Old Sambro Road in Halifax.
The woman — who told CBC News she has since quit the sex-trade business — told a harrowing story about how she got into Laffin's car and he drove her to a parking lot.
The woman said Laffin grabbed her throat and choked her. She said when she regained consciousness, her mouth was covered in duct tape and her ankles and wrists were bound.
She said she was sexually assaulted, that Laffin slammed her face into the ground and said he would kill her.
The woman said she was stuffed into the trunk of the Laffin's car, but managed to escape and run to a nearby house to call 911.Laffin is currently in custody for Taylor's homicide and is scheduled to appear in Halifax Provincial Court on March 7.
