If Heath Dykes was Tara's lover and a long time family friend, why did he leave a business card at her house?

Speaking of Tara’s house...does anyone still think she was actually killed in the house? I have driven by the house and even at night...I don’t see how someone could’ve carried her body out by themself without someone noticing something. Everything is so close. If they saw the black trucks I feel like they would’ve noticed someone carrying a body.

I still think it’s possible. But I believe her car was used to remove her body if so.

I think it’s very likely one or more was in her house when she arrived home. I think she didn’t know until after she’d plugged her cellphone in and removed the clothes she’d been wearing. The evidence doesn’t support that she was in the bed. It explains the lamp and alarm clock - they were on the same table with her house phone and cell phone. She was possibly trying to call the police when she was attacked and the disarray was possibly a result of her struggling to do so.

Oh and remember she also didn’t show up for church Sunday morning which was out of character for her

What’s the source for where heath was on Sunday? Payne was talking about it as if Heath was driving from home in perry

I also thought that he drove to her house from Perry.

Emphasisonlife - I completely see the scenario you are laying out, and perhaps ryan tried to stop her by grabbing at her necklace and it got ripped apart. I’m not sure about the bed not looking slept in though because Payne played testimonies of people saying the bed looked slept in and was unmade (it seems like Tara was a meticulous neat freak who would have kept the bed made). I’m also wondering if the cell was checked for prints other than tara’s (Perhaps she didn’t get to the phone if it was found still plugged in....she probably plugged it in to charge once she got home) but perhaps she did and Ryan had to stop her and then replace it. By the way, regarding why we’re talking about HD: I don’t think that just because charges have been filed in this case we need to ignore the questions and suspicions we have about the actions of people during this timeline.

Tara was not a neat freak. Her sister cleaned her house before Nancy Grace arrived. There is a 48 Hours video on YouTube that shows some of the police photos taken of Tara’s house. In the photos you can see that her bed was not made up neatly, but also did not look slept in. It appears the covers were just tossed up - likely when she got out of bed on Saturday morning.

To clarify, I wouldn’t say she was a slob or anything but her house was not meticulously clean, at least when the police took the photos that Monday morning. It was *slightly* messy.

From what I understand she was very particular about keeping her car clean, though. And she probably just hadn’t tidied up yet from her busy week at work and night classes. She’d been busy all day Saturday, too.

Yea all the pictures I’ve seen did not point to a beat freak. Every interview with NG talks about how her house was just perfect like a doll house but I didn’t get that impression. So many people came in before the police and I’m sure others touched her phone to try to see the last call or messages. The crime scene was not handled as a crime scene at all.

Well, I do believe NG was being sincere about the condition of Tara’s house when she was there...but it was because AG had cleaned it up.

Plus all the collectibles Tara had, and how tiny the house is.

What? Why would someone clean the home of their missing and potentially murdered sister - the scene of potentia clues, even if police had finished their work?! Just because Nancy Grace is coming to visit? Yes, she would not have driven her car through terrain that would get clay caked on her tires and marigold husks under her bumper from what I understand. That and the fact the seat was adjusted for someone taller.

🤷🏻‍♀️ But Tara sure didn’t do it between the police and NG visits. If I remember correctly AG herself said she cleaned when describing where things were that Monday morning to NG.

Well, I guess I should say Monday afternoon. It was later in the day when AG arrived from what I understand.

I’m not arguing that the sister didn’t clean, I’m just saying I’m shocked that she would

👌🏻 Was just clarifying that it is apparently a thing that happened, as unbelievable as it seems. Although, a few people in my family would’ve likely done the same.

I've had a thought about the business card left by Heath Dykes, and have been a little frustrated that in the scheme of things there has been little mention of his visit and calls in relation to Duke/Dukes involvement that has unfolded. Payne Lindsey, seems to often err on the side that the murder may have happened away from Tara's home and possibility that she may have driven to the destination of the real spot. I can imagine a scenario in that case, where Heath Dykes may have driven to check on her to find her house dark and her car not in the drive at that point. Ochams razor might suggest and it would make much more sense that when he was there, there was no sign of her including her car and maybe even her dog being in the back garden, prompting him to leave a business card to let her know he visited when she would return. Rather than him doing such an awful job of checking on her as was suggested in the earlier season 1 episodes , particularly with him being in law enforcement and all. The U&V team said it didn't make sense, but it does if it seemed from the outsi de it that she simply wasn't home. But this would certainly contradict the 'confession' version of the story. I feel this could be quite an important aspect if examined, but seems to have been kind of forgotten in the ensuing developments.
