    Teresa seems to have been abducted and murdered by an individual named RM Richards, who confessed to killing her, and also confessed to abducting and murdering Martha 'Leanne' Green (who has her own thread here on WS), but the suspect was murdered in jail before either body could be found.

    Teresa disappeared in November 1986 and Leanne vanished in April 1987. The two crimes are very similar: each victim vanished from the vehicle they were in, both disappeared at night, on rural roads, in heavy rain. RMR probably impersonated a police officer to quickly get them into his vehicle, a ruse he used to rape several other victims.

    Found a timeline with two extra pieces of information.

    RM Richards took part in the search for Teresa Butler in the week after her disappearance, typical serial killer behaviour:

    Apparently Richards had access to a remote cabin, which he used to repeatedly rape a different victim on August 7th 1987. Police likely knew nothing of the cabin at the time of Teresa's disappearance in 1986, but it seems like the area near the cabin would be an excellent location to search for the remains of Teresa Butler and Leanne Green.

    Sorry, August 2nd 1987.

    Also interesting to note that instead of his police uniform, RMR in this instance was disguised as a pilot.
