In April 2019, The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office began an investigation into child abuse allegations regarding Patricia Taylor, age 63, of Placerville, CA.  Taylor was an adoptive parent of four juvenile females who had lived in her residence from young ages and are now between the ages of 11-16.  Taylor fostered and adopted several other children in the past who have since become adults and moved out of Taylor’s home.
