    Regarding the body found in Lagrange, Here is her NamUs report. Still unidentified.

    She was African- American so that rules her out.
    Sad she's never been identified!!!

    Were these details confirmed true/false?

    1. Stove was scheduled to be replaced on the following Monday?
    2. House owner(s) due to return around that time?
    3. ML did not have any caretaking role for the house?
    4. ML wife help was enlisted but only for an occasional house cleaning?
    5. There was an unusually long response time for fire crew to arrive?

    TIA

    I think the "swoosh" is Nike's trademarked logo on athletic apparel.

    It's different than the Nike logo. I want to say Aeropostale or something like that. It's almost like a white ribbon shape.

    What about Abercrombie? American Eagle?

    It could be, but I can't find that particular shirt design for those brands either. It looks like this but it doesn't say "salsera," and the name might not matter anyway. Maybe this logo is like a local business's or something. It seems important.

    I figured that's what it looked like...I googled local clothing stores in that area trying to get a vibe of where it might've came from

    Wowza.....I hope that info can be verified. I am very suspicious of the fire & would like to know more about the 3 DEA cadaver dogs hitting in the same place. The ones done by Underwood & Hanley have been mentioned in the podcast.

    Does anyone know how long MLwas employed as a police officer

    I also had a dream last night, where someone was yelling, "It's Joe Fortier." I did NOT know the neighbor's last name was Portier! Of course, I must have heard it at some point following this case. Interesting!

    The neighbor definitely did some suspicious things after Tara disappeared... but what is his motive? Maybe he lusted after her but he was unstable enough to hurt her? I just don't think his motive is as strong as MH or HD.

    Sundrop, do you have a list of those recent calls on the night of her disappearance? The person had to know she was going to be home. To be this elaborate it sounds pretty obvious they knew where she was.

    In most situations like this I take age out of the equation.
    It could be a lust situation possibly. But I also remember that a person's emotions are so deep and complex.
    Including Tara's.
    So is it possible that he quietly had a thing for her without her knowledge and doing things for her he felt would win her over?
    When she was only looking at things he did for her as a fatherly role?
    Or let's flip the coin and say she used his possible feelings for her to her advantage and he had enough or finally wanted his award for all the things he did?
    Would she have been afraid of him enough to tell someone she felt unsafe or was she in denial that he could actually harm her?
    Did he get jealous of her male friends he saw coming and going and finally confront her?
    Is it possible that even the wife got tired of it and confronted her leading to a altercation that the husband had to cover up to protect his wife?
    Do they possibly own land somewhere that hasn't been searched?
    I am only asking these questions to look at other motives or POI than the obvious.
    I understand completely that many others are more suspicious.
    And it's quite possible that the neighbors are totally innocent of any crime.
    I just feel it should be totally looked into and all motives and possibilities covered and ruled out. Only then will the suspect that did this crime be left holding the bag sorta speak.
    I do agree on the others motives being more compelling though. Just don't want to look over any possibilities.

    If you could narrow it down to 2 possible suspects, who do you think it would be most likely? HD and JP?

    Hmmm.
    Good question. Both had means and opportunity. I'd probably say yes those would be my two.
    (Although I'm taking JP to be the neighbor right? So many initials in so many cases gets my head confused lol!)

    I just have this deep feeling that this case is not what we think it is. That it's highly possible it's someone we haven't really considered as a strong suspect. Maybe that is why it seems the case is stalled. LE might not be looking in the right direction possibly.
    I'd be looking into whether any of the potentials had farm land or a hunting club membership or even their own country property. See who allows their land to be searched and who doesn't. Who is upfront and who is shady when put on the spot.
    I'd love to know why the neighbor thought the car needed to be washed considering she was missing.
    The neighbors would know her every move and know when she was supposedly home.
    Also a question keeps coming to my mind too. About that lamp.
    Did she keep that lamp on even when she had a boyfriend over?
    The lamp seems very important to the whole flow of things that happened that night and weekend.
