The Reagan Tokes Story


On February 8, 2017 Reagan Tokes was abducted by Brian Golsby shortly after she left her work shift at a Columbus bar. Forcing Reagan to withdraw $60 from an ATM, then making her drive them in her car to Scioto Grove Metro Park in Grove City.

Golsby then raped Reagan before shooting her twice in the head, killing her. Reagan’s body was found the next day in the park. 21 year old Ohio State University Student Reagan Tokes life was brutally taken. Her last words, I just want to live. A very bright, talented young girl with an infectious smile and personality. Leaving a beautiful, and loving family who will forever mourn her loss. And question how and why?

The murderer Brian Golsby had been released from prison without being properly monitored on his whereabouts through his GPS ankle bracelet. The man convicted of killing Reagan Tokes pleaded guilty to robberies and attacks in German Village and south Columbus. Charged in connection with six armed robberies that occurred before Reagan’s death. On February 8 He had been trolling through the neighborhood around 9 p.m. looking for potential victims. Golsby was sentenced to 66 years in prison for the attacks. He was sentenced to life in prison for the robbery, kidnapping, rape and murder of Reagan Tokes.

Lisa and Toby Tokes were both surprised and shocked to find how the system has failed in such epic proportion. Through sheer strength and courage they recognized that a change must be made in the system. With great support and efforts they moved forward. Their drive and motivation comes from believing, as I quote lisa Tokes. “this is what Reagan would want us to do”. To prevent this horrible tragedy from happening to someone else.

Lisa and Toby Tokes forcefully addressed the serious issue of how and why. Through their efforts The Ohio Senate passed one of the provisions of the Reagan Tokes Act.

Senate Bill 201 allows the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections greater discretion to retain violent offenders based on behavior in prison. It also gives incentives for offenders to participate in programming and good behavior during their time in prison.


The bill was sponsored by Kevin Bacon (R-Westerville).


The Senate-passed bill does not address GPS monitoring of released inmates. Those provisions are being considered separately in Senate Bill 202, also introduced by Kevin Bacon. The Ohio House of Representatives will now consider the sentencing bill.

Together we will make a difference.
Together we will save lives”

“It’s truly sad and horrible circumstances that bring us here together for this bill and the need for it. It’s a clear breakdown of the judicial system.
We have to have this bill”

Much needs to be done in regard to fixing the existing laws, and policies of violent criminals. Additionally, educational programs reinforcing Self Defense. Safety. Prevention and Awareness. All women and teen age girls should have the basic knowledge and skills of how to fight back. Where and how to strike.

It's time to stand up and Fight Back! Addressing the serious issues of crime against women; rape, sexual assault, domestic violence, child sex trafficking, college campus crime, kidnapping and murder.

The Solutions: The Tokes family now motivated to take action and Fight Back. Doing this through Education. Together we are launching our national campaign beginning June 7th in Grove City, Ohio along with the Grove City Police Department. Lieutenant Brian Davidson, Sergeant Kevin Holmstrom and the Grove city police Dept implementing the sdi7 Safety. Prevention. Awareness Program combined with the sdi7 HIIT workouts. A workout I created which combines mixed martial arts, kickboxing, may thai, strength and conditioning, core and abdominal work. This workout enhances and reinforces fighting skills while torching fat. A series of 7 minute intervals.

National seminars, presentations and programs. Presentations and seminars include self defense, safety, prevention and awareness followed by the actual sdi7 HIIT workouts. Reinforcing fighting skills and self defense techniques. 6 week programs will be offered to high schools, colleges and universities, and through special events.
