RememberTara, you may over-complicating it a bit. I bet a person could cruise through Ocilla this weekend, going from garbage can to garbage can behind many businesses, and find a used latex glove. Cleaning ladies, janitors, etc. throw them out all the time and don't think twice about it. Now, in the cases of lab techs, their gloves are considered hazardous waste due to blood contamination, so getting one of theirs might be a little tougher. But everyone else's would be in a regular big metal trash can waiting to be picked up with all the other trash. By the way, the criminal wouldn't have to plant a fingerprint--latex gloves save the user's prints on the inside and on the outside due to their chemical makeup. And 80-some percent of people aren't in any DNA or fingerprint database, so the odds are quite good the criminal could pick a glove out of a garbage can and be quite sure the print and DNA would not be able to be identified. You also must be remember: Nothing says the criminal picked up the glove that night--he could've picked it up in the days prior to Tara's disappearance in preparation for his crime. I know, I know, it seems like a stretch. But we have to look at the only other possibility: In a town of 3,200 people, 100 of Tara's friends who knew her best have been interviewed, tested, and excluded. All of the known men in Tara's life--ex-bf's, cops, etc.--were interviewed, tested, and excluded. So the only choice is a stranger--maybe not to Tara but to all of those people most embedded in Tara's life. So somehow in this tiny little town where everyone knows everyone (I grew up in a town that size so I know) a stranger slipped under the radar of everyone who knew Tara best and committed this crime. Just my opinion but . . . that seems like more of a stretch than my glove theory. Once again, my opinion. As I've stated elsewhere: If a woman meets some kind of harm, it is usually done by a man she knows. And it's usually at night. And it's usually a man who wants something from her and she won't give it (if you know what I mean). Random acts of violence are rare, no matter what the news may say. And they become rarer and rarer as you get farther and farther from major population areas. So, RememberTara, I guess you believe Tara was harmed by a stranger, unless you're saying after all these years that there was some man in Tara's life who nobody knew about, and still nobody knows about almost 9 years later. If it was a stranger, was it random? Did Tara ever complain about being followed or stalked by some mysterious man? Did she get any anonymous letters? Any secret notes on her car? I'm willing to listen to anything you have to say about that side of the argument.
