Father of 24 found dead inside Detroit building
WJBK Fox ^ | July 29, 2013 | Andrea Isom

DETROIT (WJBK) - The bad news came in broad daylight that 45-year-old Deon Taylor of Detroit was dead inside a building.

"He was a very loving, strong man," said daughter Deleesha Taylor.

"His children are devastated. His grandchildren are devastated, and all I can say is we're trying to deal with this. It's hard," said sister-in-law Ramona Harper.

"I don't know what's going to happen now. He had 24 kids," said sister Jacqueline Taylor.

24 children are waiting to find out who or what took their father from them far too soon. Deon's cause of death is currently a mystery.

"I'm going to miss him a lot, and I know that he's in a better place. It just sucks that he can't be here with us," Deleesha said.

"My father meant the world to me. There's not a person in this world that didn't like my dad. He got along with everybody. That's why I don't understand how this could happen," said son Dwane Taylor.

That is what DPD is trying to determine. Homicide was called out because how Deon took his last breath was not obvious or clear. Cops crowded the corner of Colfax and Warren in Detroit Monday searching for evidence and any possible clues.

Sources said Deon was last seen inside the building around midnight. Although there is no signage outside, there are often signs of life inside. We learned the building is frequently used as a night club or party spot. Family and friends said Deon was last seen there getting ready to celebrate the success of one of his sons.

"Getting the place ready for his son's graduation party, which his open house was supposed to be this weekend," Harper said.

When no one had seen or heard from Deon, they had a feeling something was wrong, and sadly they were right.

"I know deep down in my heart he served his purpose here on earth," Deleesha Taylor said.

We learned Deon was found by his brother.

Meanwhile, police will determine how their investigation should proceed after they receive the medical examiner's report.

You're darn right he was.

Holy mackerel! What did he die of, exhaustion? Somebody should have neutered him long ago.

But, you folks just keep on working and watching your own budgets to support all those children whose parents keep producing children they can’t afford to raise themselves.

Now, now—how do you know he was on the public dole. I’m sure that he was married to the mother of all these children, and was working hard to support them./sarc

They story didn’t say how many different mothers there were.

Is Karma involved? A week after Detroit dies, a man whose extreme behavior symbolizes Detroit’s problems also dies.

From idiocracy.  Note the two family trees.  These two, it's in the top left corner.

A guy sounding like the man in this story, has his family tree on the bottom.

Hey, at least this guy actually knows and loves his kids. How many men are there who have no idea how many children they have fathered, much less who they are or how they are doing?

He’s probably no saint, but there are plenty of worse fathers out there.

It was the third of September.
That day I’ll always remember, yes I will.
‘Cause that was the day that my daddy died.
I never got a chance to see him.
Never heard nothing but bad things about him.
Mama, I’m depending on you, tell me the truth.

And Mama just hung her head and said,
“Son, Papa was a rolling stone.
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was ALONE.”
“Papa was a rolling stone, my son.
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was ALONE.”

The least intelligent and most government dependent citizens in America often have a multitude of children. Meanwhile, many of the most intelligent citizens were convinced in college to have very few kids so that they could instead concentrate on their career. Now protract those figures out over the coming generations and you can see where America is headed.

Reminds me of Steve Martin in "The Jerk". When he told his momma "I found out what my special purpose is for!" and when he said he could send extra money home because he was promised a blow job. Yep, this guys "purpose" served him well.

Was thinking the same damn thing. My wife and I are trying our damnedest to have just one child with little luck. Meanwhile, this pustule on the ass of humanity has 24.
