    Update: Investigators Find Remains of Missing Alberta Woman Buried in Her Backyard


    STEVENS COUNTY, Minn. (KSAX) - The bodily remains of Tamara Mason were found buried in the backyard of her Alberta home.

    A Mason had been missing since December 27, 2010, according to Stevens County Sheriff Randy Willis.

    Willis confirmed to KSAX Friday morning that authorities began digging up the body sometime Thursday in the backyard of missing woman Tamara Mason.

    Sheriff Willis said that the Stevens County Sheriff's Office has actively been searching for Mason since she was reported missing on December 27.

    The Steven's County Sheriff's Office had no leads in the case until sometime in May when information led authorities to believe foul play was involved. The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension was then called to assist in the investigation.

    Willis would not yet say how authorities had learned of the buried body in Mason's backyard.

    Sons Kill Mom on Christmas Over Yahtzee Dispute – Body Discovered
    By James Sheldon on July 18th, 2011


    For seven months, Tamara Mason had been missing from her Alberta, Minnesota, community. Feared dead by her closest friends, police searched and searched for clues and followed leads offered by her sons.

    The three sons Jacob and Andrew Cobb, and Dylan Clemens, led police to believe that they had last seen their mother on December 26, 2010, before she had gone out with someone who was possibly driving a dark blue pickup truck.

    In truth, the three sons had a little dispute with mom on Christmas day–she wanted to play Yahtzee–they didn’t. Apparently, the request and subsequent argument so frustrated 17 year-old Jacob, that he wrapped a plastic bag around his mother’s head, then choked her to death with a belt. Mason was all of 5′3″, 120 pounds

    This has got to be one of the dumbest reasons ever to murder someone.
    "No , I don't want to play" would have been sufficient.
    Way to make Christmas memorable.

    Rest in peace, Tamara, despite your sons.

    RIP Tamara - what a betrayal.

    I can't wait to hear these young men explain exactly what happened; could it really be only about a Yahtzee game? If so, Jacob must be a psychopath, imo, and the other two sons must not have valued their mom much to cover for such a senseless killing and obstruct the investigation...

    Imo, there's probably more to this sad story. The boys might have been involved in criminal activity and/or on drugs. Wonder if they had an ongoing dispute with their mother. Speculating. It's almost incomprehensible that a simply Yahtzee game would be the only trigger causing a 17 year old boy to brutally snuff out his mom's life on Christmas Day. But, "incomprehensible" brutality by family members (and their associates) is the running theme on two other cases I'm following, so maybe Tamara really did have the life choked out of her simply for requesting that her children play a game with her on Christmas. Madness...

    From September 2012:

    http://www.kmrskkok.com/2012/09/17/t...mothers-death/

    It wasn’t the sentence that was expected, but it was the sentence Stevens County Judge Gerald Seibel handed down: for Andrew Quinton Cobb, a sentence of 22 months and 15 days...

    On Christmas Eve, they say, the four were gathered at Tamara Lee Mason’s Alberta home to play games. After a disagreement, Jacob Cobb began to strangle his mother. At some point, Andrew admits, he got a plastic bag. Who put the bag over her head and who put a belt around her neck has been left undetermined... After Mason had died, the brothers drove her body away from Mason’s home, first to South Dakota, then to Glenwood, MN, attempting to bury their mother. In the dead of winter, they were unable to bury her, so they stored Mason’s body in a shed at her home until the two elder brothers buried her in the spring...

    Following their arrest, Dylan Clemens and Andrew Cobb pled guilty to “Aiding an Offender—Accomplice After the Fact”... Jacob Cobb... pled guilty to “Murder—2nd Degree—Without Intent—While Committing a Felony”... Judge Seibel sentenced Dylan Clemens to 93 months in prison, a sentence that is slightly less than 9 years... Judge Seibel sentenced Jacob Cobb to 180 months, or 15 years, in prison.
