I don't fully buy his confession either but believe he has relayed most of the truth I don't see how he had any benefits in lying now and feel he displayed the right amount of sincerity I guess 5 years behind bars will whip your priorities into line I'm not saying this but if I was being blackmailed by bo ( following his narrative eg keep my name out your mouth , and love seat )if it's true the old saying keep friends close keep enemies even closer rings true but that is why I'm sitting hear and these arsehats are on trial for her disappearance
Yes @osmosis that’s exactly the saying that came to my mind about the relationship…keep friends close and enemies closer. I mean Bo already added him in the scenario in the “we” killed her. Then he told the love seat boys Ryan killed her. It’s a dangerous relationship for sure. I think Bo did it and I wish like everyone that law enforcement had done the right thing years ago. I honestly cannot fathom how these two towns have gone on with most knowing the real story and still no justice for Tara until a podcast with a bunch of strangers came together! 🤯
I agree. I do not completely believe his story. I believe there's more to it. I think he knows more than he's saying. I do believe he was scared of Bo. I think he was a non confrontational person and just went with whatever Bo said. It is very sad that the LE slacked on their part but also I wish Ryan would have came forward years ago. All around its a sad situation for Tara's parents bc there's still not going to be justice for her
Wishing comfort and peace to Tara’s family and loved ones. I do not believe Ryan told the truth under oath on the stand about what exactly happened to Tara and his role in her murder and concealment with Bo. What was it he said, something like ‘I didn’t have to ask’ Bo when he reportedly saw Tara’s lifeless body. Why wasn’t that response explored?? What do you mean you knew? What could you tell just from looking at her?? Don’t come after me with what you think. This is what I think. Peace to Tara’s family. He knows exactly what happened and so does Bo.
@sandie I believe they both know too
I think they said his work hours were from 7am to 7pm, so he wouldn't have been sleeping 20+ hours
@meddle it was definitely 7pm-7am from Ryan’s mouth. Started in September 2005, 12 hour shifts Mon-Fri https://youtu.be/Q-VMvKhZNg8 @ 1 hour and 32 minutes if you need a refresher
Touching on this did ryan take any days off work the following week after this if so wouldn't this of made their bosses more suspicious of the tip from garland or did ryan go to work on Monday at 7pm as if nothing happened
Osmosis I wondered the same. As far as his testimony about sleeping odd, but consistent hours, I found it a little excessive to be sleeping for almost 20 out of the 24 hours in a day. Even if he was drinling tequilla and beer, I feel like he would have woke after a few hours of being passed out. I wonder if Bo and/or Ben came back to get Ryan at some point in the middle of the night (when he's used to being awake).
Maybe they should call in the cops that were on duty that night and stopped a black truck at the EMC on Vo Tech road. They could tell us who was in the back truck with the redacted license plate.
I thought it was weird, too, to wake up around 5 or 6 (after sleeping for around 8 hours) and pass out again around 9 or 10 and sleep until 8 ish the next morning. I wondered if Bo and/or Ben came back during the night to get Ryan. If they did and Ryan was involved in Tara's murder, I find it odd that Bo hasn't disclosed those details since he can't shut the f**k up! Ryan has been silent. We know what we know b/c of Bo (that was painful to type). I seriously doubt he would protect Ryan and I doubt even further that he would partake in something without question. Ryan had the chance to blow the whistle and he didn't. He has to live with that failure for the rest of his life.
