Just thinking about this case and trying to understand what was going on in Tammy's life back in 1983. She was quite accomplished and certainly extremely beautiful. Tammy's experience in modeling and acting was far beyond the "still waiting to be discovered' stage. She had the connections (through her Mom's agency) to get the best auditions, I would imagine. I don't think that she would have fallen for Wilder's tactics or needed his involvement in her career to be successful-I could be wrong, since her mom stated that Tammy and Wilder had met on a movie set. So there maybe a previous association that made Tammy comfortable with this monster. Once KR left her that day near the beach, she could have accepted a ride from Wilder (when she couldn't reach her aunt by phone) and never expected his motives.
I do wonder what she and KR argued about that day - they were good friends, and friends have disputes, but what would have escalated to the degree that made a young man leave an 18 year old girl on the side of the road that day? What was KR's explanation? He left her on July 5th- she was reported missing on July 11th. What was going on during those 6 days - where did her family think she was? I have read in other on line sites that Tammy was seen with KR after July 5th. Is there any truth to that?
If these questions have been answered before, please forgive me. I hope this case is solved and Tammy's whereabouts are discovered for this family.
