Seems like there'd be a log-in trail or paper trail from the case file to whomever published it. Probably not a direct trail, but one that could provide some answers.
I have a theory but it’s based on a lot of ifs so I don’t want to run with it just yet...I was just curious what employees would have access to it. I will say I feel strongly someone was getting nervous about other people being identified so they want to make sure it seems very clear cut so they or their family wouldn’t get drug into it.
# Justice for Tara
It appears the lid is coming off the top of this case. Whatever the individual/s’ intention in leaking Ryan’s initial interview / confession, pandora’s box is open. Magnifying the case, the people under suspicion, and reasons for concern over how this case (CONTINUES) to be handled.
Yes it seems that way. I think it’s awful it was released on here and I think it’s even worse it was published on the front page of the local paper. This isn’t justice for Tara imo. All sides need a fair trial to avoid appeals down the road which can only add further hurt to Tara’s family and friends.
@georgia I agree with you, it is not justice. I have not read the paper and curious if the writer for the paper paraphrased and quoted the document , or provided the entire document (or both)? I feel terrible for Tara’s loved ones.
No , she and her family has not gotten justice . I’m just hoping they do 🙏🏻,also hope the lid and all the big pile of crooks get their just punishment.
Oops sorry hope the lids all get blown apart. No it should not have been published but if brings the scum to the surface so be it
I’ll change it too “Hoping for Justice for Tara ! “ Its my new mantra, 🤞 I have to say it everyday when I think of it. I’m tired of talking about cat litter , what store was where , etc etc . I just think we are beyond all that. They did it , what degree who did what we will see when it goes to trial. If it even makes it that far , I’m assuming there could still be a plea bargain. Still nothing from the judge, he’s way late from his 24-48 hours. I think his questionnaire will be pretty useless since the entire county got it on the front page of the Star.
Did they publish the same thing that was deleted from here and reddit? Just curious I didn’t get to see the one here before it was gone.
@sandie I skimmed over a copy. Looked like a lot of it was exact. He said “girlfriend” instead of her exact name like the GBI version had. I’m still so shocked they published it at all. I can’t imagine Dusty would be pleased.
Thank you @georgia💔 I don’t think Dusty would be either. He held ethics in high regard. I know what you mean, I am shocked too - speechless. The only good I can see resulting from this are the questions that arise in the mind of the discerning reader. The mockery made of the justice system. And for what reason? Not Tara. And not Ryan. Anyone thinking this hurt Ryan, needs to think again.
Fairly certain the The Ocilla Star's mail/PO Box is going to be overflowing with Letters to the Editor in the coming days..... 😬
I found the Ocilla Star website but it was too blurry to read. How did it say it got the confession information? Did the person that posted on here mail it to them or did the see it on here?
They probably won't give up their source. Doing so is like journalistic suicide.
Although they could admit they got it from a public platform like here if that was the case. But if an individual specifically sent it to them, they won't disclose who that was.
Going back over the confession there is alot of grammatical errors in there the big one is when they say ryan duke was interviewed 1001 years ago and it reads all over the place as if it was chopped and changed i wonder how the recorded transcript plays against it _
Why is the Ocilla Star the only news source reporting this? Is it maybe because no other reputable news source can verify its authenticity or the legitimacy of the source? So, if that's the case, then why did the Star publish it?
I wouldn’t expect them to give up their souce but it’s one thing if they found it on here and another if someone mailed it to them without them requesting it.
