TX - Tara Suzette Breckenridge, 23, Houston, 4 August 1992
tara.jpg Tara Suzette Breckenridge
This case is memorable for me because her and I are almost the same age, so that big hair of hers takes me back to the good old days of middle school. Big hair...mullets..and my peach fuzz of a mustache...good times... Anyway, as I was reading this it brought to mind the case of Brandi Wells who's been missing since 06. I also read that the boyfriend is a suspect in this case. Apparently the alternator belt is missing. That's got to be an inside job or something planned. You can take the belt off and the car will run fine until the battery dies, so whomever did this, intended for the car to break down. So who would have access to her car in that way? The significant other.
Has there been any updates about her case?
Previous thread mentioned..http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...=153596&page=2
Breckenridge was last seen leaving The Men's Clubin the 3300 block of Sage in southwest Houston, Texas at 1:00 a.m. on August 4, 1992. She was employed at the club as a server at the time. It was a slow night and the management decided to send two servers home early. Breckenridge volunteered to go, which is uncharacteristic of her behavior. A security guard escorted her to her car and she drove away without incident.
Breckenridge was returning to her apartment on Houston's northwest side at the time she disappeared. Her red 1986 Pontiac Fiero was discovered abandoned and locked in the 1200 block of West Loop North near 12th Street, along her normal route home, at 2:30 a.m. The car alarm and the flashers were off, and a can of mace Breckenridge carried for protection was inside. There was no indication of a struggle, but the vehicle's alternator belt was missing. She has never been seen again.
Breckenridge's live-in boyfriend is considered a possible suspect in her case. Their relationship was troubled and Breckenridge often spoke of leaving him. The boyfriend says he was at a pool hall at the time Breckenridge disappeared, and he didn't realize she was missing until he came home at 5:00 a.m. and she wasn't there. Her car was located only about three miles from the pool hall, and witnesses at the establishment said the boyfriend left at 1:45 a.m. and was gone for approximately an hour and forty-five minutes before returning to the pool hall. He maintains her innocence in her disappearance.
Foul play is suspected in Breckenridge's case. There were several abductions of young women in the Houston area in the early 1990's. Authorities do not know if Breckenridge's case is related to the other incidents. She grew up in a religious family in Del Rio, Texas and has four siblings. She moved to Houston after high school to pursue a photography career. Her case remains unsolved.

I like going way back and pulling out old Unsolved Mysteries cases to see if there are any current updates or discussions, but I don't see many of them here. I guess maybe the folks here a just too young to remember. I don't know, but I do try.

Just saw this episode on Unsolved Mysteries, and I was struck by the boyfriend's statement, "I loved that girl, I loved her to death". In addition, he never actually comes out and says "I didn't kill her"; he says something like "I haven't been charged with a crime because I didn't commit a crime"...as if he couldn't quite bring himself to say "I didn't do it, I didn't kill her".
I thought the fact that he even appeared on the show spoke to his possible innocence (how often do we see perps avoid media), but a few things he said really stood out to me.
Can't believe Tara has been gone over 20 years with no clue to her whereabouts. I hope she comes home soon.
