    Not much on him here, is there?

    Did a thread about Marcus get deleted or something? He was apparently an important person in Tara's life for a long time, but not much is written about him here.

    Are there more photos of the 2 of them together? Sometimes, body language can be meaningful... Some people pick up things that others don't.. Just saying.

    Did they use any type of aircraft with heat sensors flying over the family's farm property soon after Tara went missing? If not, does anyone know why not?

    It has been a long time since the last post on here. There are 10-20 threads on other missing person pages here in WS. I realize it has been a long time but Tara is not forgotten. I am from small town GA & know many people who knew & love her. This case really only has 2 scenarios IMO. She left on her own or was murdered by someone she knew. I don't think she would not have put up a fight and/or screamed if it were a stranger inside her house. Where are you at Tara?

    That scenario—accidental killing—is plausible but unlikely. 1) Passion is what moves people to violence, and he was no longer passionate about Tara. 2) He would have had to get his "ride along" to give him a bogus alibi. That would be an awfully loyal friend.

    Now, if she had some dirt on him & threatened to expose it if he didn't take her back, then he'd have a motive for premeditated murder. If she was threatening to expose corruption in the police department, then anyone in that department could have been the perp. Was the ride-along MH's idea or the passenger's idea? Maybe MH made good and certain that he had an alibi because he knew someone else had plans for Tara.

    A more likely scenario, though, is that she had a stalker, and not some college kid—probably not someone inexperienced at abduction, either. It could have been someone she knew, but I would not assume that.

    I don't think he's a viable suspect. Is there a possibility he was involved? Sure, he can't be completely ruled out - but that possibility, IMHO, is very small. Whoever did this was someone with a motive, and I don't see a motive for MH at all.

    I have been listening to the podcast. I really hope it brings more attention to Tara's case. I can't stop thinking about the part of episode 2 where her sister mentions MH and the "18 year old" he was dating. Was this relationship confirmed? Or was that possibly what Tara told her sister, but it was actually HER (Tara) that was dating the 18 year old? According to the podcast she was dating AV...but, I have also came across other information, as well, about another former student.

    It all makes me wonder if MH had actually moved on (like he said). I know he has supposedly been interviewed numerous times, but I still believe he was somehow involved. His "alibi" is far too convenient - and possibly fabricated. I am curious about the absence of reports for Bennie that night... Payne mentions this at the very end of the third episode.

    Just some random thoughts. I hope this forum gets some more attention.

    I'm really confused about the meaning of the last lines of the email to Marcus' mother... What were the exact last words? Something about should something happen to me or even Marcus? She goes on to express concern about something happening just to her, but the fact she included something that indicated danger to him as well seemed odd. Might some other parties might be involved? A new boyfriend, perhaps?

    I agree. There is some other wording in that email that confuses me, as well.

    "If this were all about me, I would not want Marcus..."

    "This does not mean I'm a bad person. It means I have to put it first in my life, and I was happy having it that way..."

    Who is it all about? And what is IT there? It's very odd wording.

    did you find copies of the emails she sent MH's mother? seems like you know more about what's in the emails than was mentioned in the podcast. I'd like to read the emails if they are available. Also, has anyone ever interviewed MH's mother? if Tara was emailing her this stuff, obviously his mother was aware of what was going on. I find it extremely frustrating that there's a missing, presumably murdered, woman and these emails from her to a POI's mom basically get "thrown under the rug". It's obvious MH and his family have more information, at least on why Tara would email his mother she was possible in danger and so was her son.

    Maybe baby?

    "If this were all about me, I would not want Marcus..."

    "This does not mean I'm a bad person. It means I have to put it first in my life, and I was happy having it that way..."

    Is it possible within the time lines that Tara could be pregnant or thought she was pregnant with Marcus's child?

    I have always thought this; that Tara was insenuating that she was pregnant. Also would explain the large amount of cash in the car. Maybe she backed out of an abortion?

    Also, this. IMO it makes sense if you put it into that context BUT I personally think *if* there was a pregnancy it was likely NOT MH b/c he had only been home for 3 weeks- not enough time to get a positive pregnancy test and determine an abortion.Unless my time frame for him being home is off. IMO.

    Regarding your first question about the 18-year-old, I feel certain that was confirmed. Tara had "teacher friends" in Tifton, GA, who had taught this young girl and gave Tara the scoop. They are the ones who made her aware of the relationship to begin with, IIRC. As for the curious wording in her e-mail about something happening to her or even Marcus, my nosey self would loveee to know what the heck she was talking about, especially given that she disappeared shortly after making those comments. Was she a drama queen type? That might explain those comments. I've no doubt that Dr. Godwin knows, but I'm not sure how much of that info he can divulge. He has said several times that Tara was not pregnant. I'm sorry I couldn't be more helpful, but maybe I at least gave you some clarity on the 18-year-old.

    She may have been pregnant. She may have seen or knew of something she shouldn't have or threaten to divulge. I think Dr. Godwin has based his predictions on what he saw at the house. He says there weren't any pregnancy tests in the bathroom, which doesn't mean she wasn't pregnant. He saw other things too...birth control pills/tampons. Again, that doesn't mean she wasn't.
    I personally don't think she was and believe Dr. Godwin would know more than any other one of us.
    That being said, someone close has told me that some have said it was "known" she was pregnant. But I never know what to believe.
    It could be another part to this twisted story. She could have been. It could have been she didn't know who the father was and someone freaked.
    At this point I don't think it matters. I think she knew something she wasn't supposed to have known and someone got rid of the problem.

    Hi guys. Long time follower of this case. Quick question that arose while listening to the podcast...Tara's friend that called her at the BBQ...did I hear correctly that she called from the White Horse while MH was there? I'm sorry I can't remember if she saw something he was doing that prompted her to call Tara. Thanks!
