I'm not talking about RM but TJ. In TJ MyCase (see below post I made a day or so ago) it mentions a warrant. I will have to go back and see what it says now, it could have been a mistake.

Replying to my own post for clarity.
It is still shown as warrant for the body of a person.
Is it possible the warrant was in order to get his fingerprints and DNA? It is listed as order signed then order issued for each of those items so that may be the answer for TJ's warrant IMO.

No contact. Phone calls emails, etc. all
possible from jail.

The protective orders would be against them if they were prohibited from contacting him.
@Boxer not sure that is odd. I don't know what to think anymore. But everything I have read and after seeing RM criminal history. Things really seems to be more odd.

@Boxer I'm not sure. Just seems odd all of it. Normally someone doesn't report someone missing when they are just a little late. Was SR upset that RM didn't tell TJ or other they were together? I still keep going back to if she was scared of TJ and got a PO why move so close to him and date his coworker?


MOO I think it is most likely she saw TJ in Ryan's house and called 911 at 8:05am.

I bet that is why it says warrent. I'm sure its standard to get those in this kind of case.

RM has lived there for some time, so SR has only moved in recently IMO. TJ may have moved there after SR did, it's difficult to know the exact timings. TJ's address was still listed as Delphi in his September traffic citation.

@tresir2012
How do you know RM has lived there for a long time? Are you friends with him or just seen it on court cases

Did SR meet RM through TJ while she and TJ were dating?

I agree, I think it's weird to report someone missing if they're a little late coming home from work.

I think there's more to this (we've not been privy to) that might help pull it all together into something that makes sense. o_O

This?

“Warrant or Writ of Attmnt for the Body of a Person Issued”

Attemnt = Attachment

Maybe someone with legal experience can chime in but that appears to refer to an Arrest Warrant whereby one is held in custody awaiting an appearance before a Judge. However in this particular case TJ was not granted bail.

There’s also a separate Order granted to obtain TJs DNA and fingerprints, indicative of a paper trail similar to all evidence legally obtained IMO.

MOO true. Though not strange if she saw TJ in RMs house.

From what I have gathered, TJ drove Ryans car to Ryan’s house. SR was alerted by the garage door opening, and his opener would most likely be in his car. I assume he opened the garage door and let himself in that way.
Again, these are all assumptions. I haven’t talked to SR about any of it, I don’t know her like I knew him.
I do know that, despite TJ being who he was in relation to Ryan’s girlfriend, AND fighting with him at work, it says a LOT about both of their caliber of character that Ryan even gave him a ride to begin with, but that is just the type of guy Ryan was, and for TJ to take advantage of that. That doesn’t sound like mental illness or even drugs. That sounds cold and calculated. It sounds straight up evil.

BBM. From an earlier post

If this is accurate, it makes the most sense, IMO

How do you know they fought at work? Did you hear them? O never read anything about TJ driving RM car home other then SR saying she heard him. It seems like there are so many he said she said. I just feel like something is off. Thats my opinion. Ryan having a criminal past makes me wonder. It's not like he was only in trouble for a few things. He has multiple things. Strangulation in front of child, battery in front of a child, drug charges, dealing drugs, dui, residential entry.
Seems odd that RM would date someone his coworker was with? Why move her in if TJ was so violent towards her? <modsnip - blaming someone not named as a POI> It's all such a twist

MOO no doubt RM was a lawbreaker.
Though to me it looks like was settling down. RM's shady past no doubt will be part of TJs defense.
MOO Right now RM is a victim, man that went into another mans apartment and was murdered.

If SR was truly afraid of TJ and RM was a supportive partner, if TJ was dealing RM could’ve easily reported him to get him busted and arrested and out of SRs life. That leads me to believe it wasn’t TJ who was dealing, if that was involved. Hypothetically then, if RM was the dealer, as he apparently didn’t go home according to SR, then he’d be toting drugs in his vehicle along with possibly driving with his Specialized Driving Permit revoked. That’d be way beyond high risk activity IMO. So I don’t know but other than a mutual binging or using connection, I can’t imagine a logical scenario where either one was actually dealing. Which is why I still can’t get my head around the Protection Order filed by SR, which under normal circumstances would’ve stood between RM and TJ even hanging out together.
RM looks like he has dealing charge. Was he possibly using TJ place to make a deal? Maybe SR noticed he wasnt home and was upset that he was at TJ and SR called saying she seen TJ that way he would be in trouble. Who knows at this point.

Lafayette man killed, found in suspect's apartment

This is from page 1 of the thread. From the article -

"Skyler Renn reported at 8:05 a.m. Thursday that Jasper, her ex-boyfriend, was inside Martin's home at 10 Kenosha Court. Renn had a protective order that barred Jasper from contacting her, according to Lafayette police.

Jasper was not at the house when police arrived, according to police.

During that investigation, Renn told police she had not heard from Martin, her boyfriend, that day and had expected him home from work that morning. Her calls to Martin's phone were going to voicemail, according to a probable cause affidavit.

While police investigated a missing persons report on Martin, they learned that he had been seen in Jasper's apartment earlier that day, according to the affidavit."

DEFENDANT COMPLETED VIP ON JULY 10, 2012.

I suppose anything’s possible. Most times drug dealers are associated with gangs as their supplier which could then add another element.

But I’m totally lacking in any one theory that feels to me as if it fits. RMs murder would make the most sense if he and TJ just happened to cross paths in some bar after a night of drinking and then a vicious fight broke out between the two in a back alley.

After both spent the entire night shift working together, that RM would go into TJs apartment instead of heading home...why is the big question mark. As TJ already had a new girlfriend I’m not convinced jealousy was the motive if SR and TJ had already broken up months ago. Typically the risk for domestic violence diminishes as time passes. My only thought is if RM expected his parole to be revoked during his upcoming hearing on May 28th and he was preparing to spend six months in jail, so he set out to engage in one big bender and TJ was a willing, able and convenient drinking partner, at the onset at least.

According to below, RMs visit to the apartment the following morning was anticipated by TJ the night before.

“When Jasper, 19, went to work the third-shift at Arconic late May 22, he told two women — one of whom is identified in the affidavit as his girlfriend —staying the night at his Pheasant Run Apartment to be gone by 7 a.m. the next morning, according to the affidavit. He told them he would get a ride home from work from Martin.”
