COLUMBUS, Ohio — A South Florida family is determined to see changes made after their daughter was kidnapped, raped, and murdered in 2017.
21-year-old Reagan Tokes, whose parents live in Parkland, was a student at Ohio State University when police said Brian Golsby attacked and killed her.
Golsby had been recently released from prison on attempted rape and robbery charges, and was wearing a GPS monitor. According to detectives, he robbed at least six people before killing Tokes.
Because Golsby was a registered sex offender, halfway houses turned him away and he became homeless.
On Wednesday, state lawmakers in Ohio will look at a new bill created in Tokes' honor.
Senate Bill 133 would improve GPS monitoring for criminals released from prison, and would reduce the caseload for parole officers, which would allow those officers to keep better track of convicts.
The bill would also create a re-entry program for offenders who are turned away from halfway houses.
