A statement via Grove City Division of Police told of Brian Lee Golsby charged with aggravated murder, along with aggravated kidnapping and aggravated robbery. Goldsby faces charges of aggravated murder, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated robbery, police said in a statement.
She was last seen leaving work at a Columbus restaurant around 10 p.m. Wednesday.
Ironically, co-workers told police that the bartender normally had bouncers walk her to her vehicle, but did not on the evening of her abduction.
A naked body, later identified as that of Reagan Tokes, was found Thursday morning outside of Scioto Grove Metro Park in Grove City. Tokes had been shot, and police are investigating the death as a homicide.
This is a breaking news story. Golsby was arrested at 4:00 a.m. on Saturday after "several" items recovered from Tokes' vehicle matched his DNA. Police did not initially confirm if she was murdered outside the park or if she was murdered elsewhere and her body was moved there, but later stated that strong evidence suggested the crime took place at the park.
The Columbus Dispatch reported she had been shot twice in the head. Tokes auto was later located near Golsby's residence. He is a registered sex offender in Franklin County. Arraignment is scheduled for Monday at 9 a.m.
Tokes was a psychology major at Ohio State and from Maumee, Ohio.
Reagan's co-workers told Columbus police that a bartender usually walks her to her auto after her shift, but that she left alone on Wednesday night, the paper reports.
Golsby in 2010 was arrested for robbing a woman and then robbing and raping another two weeks later in an apartment complex parking lot.
"We extend our heartfelt sympathies to her family and friends", the statement reads.
The investigation is ongoing, and police will "maintain a visible presence in the campus area", the press release says. Sgt. Chris White, a Grove City detective, said authorities are awaiting results from a rape kit, but so far they have found no evidence of sexual assault.
On Thursday her sister, Makenzie Tokes, posted on Twitter that anyone with information on her whereabouts should let the family know immediately.
"Reagan would want us to remember her for all the laughter, joy, and love she brought to each and everyone of us".
