COLUMBUS — A registered sex offender suspected in the slaying and alleged rape of an Ohio State University student is being held without bond.
A court granted that request from prosecutors Monday (Feb. 13) in the potential death penalty case against 29-year-old Brian Golsby, of Columbus. He is charged with aggravated murder, rape and other counts.
Police say they arrested Golsby after matching him to DNA evidence from Tokes’ car. Golsby was previously imprisoned in an attempted rape and aggravated robbery and was released from prison in November.
Twenty-one-year-old Reagan Tokes was reported missing after leaving her job at a restaurant Wednesday night (Feb. 8). Her nude body was found Thursday (Feb. 9) outside a Grove City park.
Ohio State University says Tokes was majoring in psychology. She was formerly from the Toledo area.
