On Sunday night, February 12th, no music could be heard at Bodega, the last site where Reagan Tokes was last seen alive. Even though the place was filled with customers, everything stood still for a long moment of solemn remembrance. All present were holding lit candles and brought so many flowers that both windows were covered from top to bottom.
On Wednesday, February 8th, Reagan Tokes was last seen alive here. The 21-year-old worked part-time at Bodega while studying at Ohio State University from where she was supposed to graduate in May. Many are still in shock after learning of her violent kidnapping and death, which occurred only a short while after she ended her shift that night.
Vara Pamidimukkala, an Ohio State senior described her as a nice person with a friendly personality who did not deserve any of what happened to her. She said everyone at Ohio State University is still dealing with Reagan Tokes’ passing.
The 21-yer-old student was from Monclova Township, though her family moved to Florida 4 years ago. Reagan Tokes used to play on the varsity lacrosse team and was a four-year varsity tennis player at Anthony Wayne. Furthermore, she was actively involved in mission trips organize by the Maumee United Methodist Church.
Local authorities are still investigating the prime suspect in Reagan Tokes’ murder case, Brian L. Golsby, a registered sex offender who supposedly kidnapped the 21-year-old on Wednesday. According to official court documents, the suspect is being held without bond, as Ron O’Brien, Franklin County Prosecutor is considering the death penalty for Tokes’ killer. On Saturday night, Grove City authorities filed a rape charge against the 29-year-old sex offender who also faces kidnapping, aggravated robbery, and aggravated murder charges.
Franklin County Prosecutor’s motion states that Brian Golsby has a lengthy juvenile record as well as adult record that landed him two prison commitments. Ron O’Brien deems him a danger for society, the main grounds on which the offender is required to be held without bond. At a later date, the prosecutor’s office will present the case to the Franklin County grand jury for felony charges. Per Ron O’Brien’s statement, the man could face the capital punishment for his crimes.
