TROY, Mich. -- The death of porn actress Taylor Summers has brought out a number of old-stock photo and DVD collections of when she was alive.

Several websites hawking her images have been activated since her death after authorities confirmed finding her decomposing corpse in a ravine in White Marsh, Penn., on Tuesday.

JadedVideo.com is selling a DVD of her in “Naughty College Couples 6.” And Busty-amateurs.us started selling a gallery of photos through the paid-site portion of Google.

“We know that Taylor would have wanted to have been remembered for her art and her beauty, and would be pleased with our decision to celebrate her legacy,” Busty-amateurs site read Friday.

But one website owner who operates aquariusphotos.com chose not to exploit the death of Summers, whose real name was Natel King.

The owner, who goes by the name of Bill, told XBiz on Friday that he has pulled the site, which now reads: “Not available, in respect for her memory.” At the site, he once sold mpeg streaming media and photos of the porn actress.

Bill also co-owns Girlsofsamba.com and said that he met the 5’8”, 138 lb., blonde actress last October when a friend brought her by his photography studio.

“She showed up at my door one day, and it was a quick shoe-fetish shoot,” Bill said."At the end of the session we talked a bit. She seemed like she was self-confident, very business-like. She was into bondage.”

Bill, who operates his business from Troy, Mich., said he shut down the site because he didn’t want to participate in a morbid run for a buck.

“I have two pieces of advice for young models: know who you are shooting with and travel with somebody,” Bill said.

Montgomery County District Attorney’s office has charged a photographer with the death of the 23-year-old Canadian porn actress, who was missing for nearly a month.

District Attorney Bruce Castor said Anthony Frederick of Eagleville, Pa., was arrested about midnight Tuesday night and charged with first- and third-degree murder, possession of an instrument of crime, unsworn falsification to authorities and abuse of a corpse.

Frederick was arraigned Wednesday afternoon and ordered held without bail.

Castor said Frederick was last seen with the actress and model on Feb. 29. He said that based on evidence presented in an affidavit, he wouldn't discount that Summers’ death was caught on camera.

"The murder took place as part of a sexual bondage fantasy," Castor said. He also said that Summers may have been at a “snuff shoot,” where a person's death is simulated on film.

Summers had gone to Conshohocken, Penn., for a late February photo shoot. Her car was found parked on a local street a few days later.

Summers’ body was found with a bondage ball in her mouth. She was found wearing bondage gear.
