Alleged victim ends silence after Sarah Goode’s death

Nicole Lukas, 21, recently told police that Dante Taylor beat her and tried to rape her three years ago. Lukas had thought she'd keep this a secret her whole life, but then Sarah Goode was raped and killed on June 7, 2014. Suffolk police and U.S. Marshals arrested Taylor in Florida on July 10 on a warrant in connection with Lukas' attempted knifepoint rape. He was brought back to LI and was charged with her attempted rape and Goode?s slaying, according to court records. On July 24, 2014, Lukas discussed what she said happened.
