Maybe it wasn't a "hug murder".... maybe the killer pointed the gun at him and told him to put his hands up and turn around, because the killer couldn't look him in the face and pull the trigger.. idk

I love that Ryan accuses Shane of taking "the easy way out" when it comes to explanations. He thinks his wind theory is the easy way out for ghosts and Shane shut him down. Not the season for it!

So he was facing up when he was found..... ok so then the hugging then shot makes sense cause then he’s fallen back or helped down but the arms raised (back towards the shooter) doesn’t make sense other wise he’d be faced down.....

The Minter lady could have very well been involved, who ordered the murder of Taylor. So it would make sense (in a way) if the actual killer was heard in the back yard, smoking.

What if Taylor was hugging someone, but not the person who shot him? Like if someone walked in, saw him with another person and shot Taylor from behind? It would explain him being on his back as the person hugging him might have panicked and let him fall backwards.
