A 19-year-old Mastic man has been charged with murder of a Medford woman who was found dead in a wooded area in her hometown last month, Suffolk County police said.

Dante Taylor was arrested July 10 in Florida by Suffolk County police detectives and the United States Marshals for an unrelated arrest warrant. He was transferred to Suffolk police headquarters where he was charged on Saturday with second-degree murder, police said.

Taylor will be held at the Sixth Precinct until his arraignment at First District Court in Central Islip on Saturday.

The woman, Sarah Goode, had been reported missing by her sister in early June and was found in a thickly wooded area on June 12. Police were called to the area after a search group of about 45 people found Goode’s body near Camden Court.

Goode’s BMW was found about a mile from where her body was discovered.
