For the longest time i have been a fence sitter on ryans guilt or partial involvement i have friends and acquaintances on both sides ,but can not commit to one side. for the sake of taras loved ones i wish the judge would just speed up the process and get it over for them and with this latest twist it has not made thier job any easier! With this now being published in the media as well as online its called out peoples agendas for the leak and the way it was done . What is everyones thoughts? has the confession swayed your mind one way or the other or has it made you backflip on your innitial reactions to the podcast and the way it was presented ?

*GBI site —“Missing persons” Case solved. I understand that as the remains were found. Could be mistaken

More secrets ?? Really thinking it’s past time for that all to end.

My feelings on the confessions are that BD's girlfriend Brooke got scared and told her Mom and this set off a chain of events. She even changed her story about her Mom telling her to go to the police, from her convincing BD to turn himself in. Which, if you were truely scared of someone, you wouldn't even try to convince them to turn themselves in... you'd go straight to the cops. Her saying she could reason with him is only a sad excuse to make it look like she could reason with him. He didn't sound remorseful when talking about burning the body, I find it hard to believe he'd turn himself in without any plan to get the best deal for himself. This pushed BD to go confess before her Mom beat him to it, but he thought he'd throw Ryan under the bus while he was at it. Which I believe was his plan all along if this ever got out in the first place. I do think that RD was at TG's house that night, and I believe that BD went to her house too because they both knew where she lived. Brooke said that BD showed her where TG's house was after he told her what happened. BD's account of how RD got into the house makes no sense. I don't think RD is blameless, but I also don't think we have the full story in any shape or form.

I'm just wondering how long some of these accounts will be around after Bo goes to prison🤷🏻‍♂️

@nacho the narrative told by Bo and Ryan does not make sense. It just doesn’t. I suspect Ryan may have had the first interaction with Tara that night/morning - which led to a horrible downward spiral of events (her death). He may have in turn held himself responsible....too ashamed to tell what he really did and what really happened. Would rather die than do so - self punishment. One punch, she’s dead? Well, that’s what he said so it must be true, right? Send him to prison for life because that’s what he said and that’s what Bo said. No. I think there are threads of truth in their collaborated story. But it does not add up and I won’t list the numerous ways it doesn’t add up but glad we all discuss those elements here. I think in some small way it helps Tara. Some may think Ryan is telling the complete truth in that ‘leak’ but I don’t think he is. Nevertheless, he is charged with murder, that document is an important part of the prosecution’scase - and someone/s is hellbent to tip the table of justice against Ryan (not unlike ‘ok we’re gonna say you hit her - an accid ent....THEN says she looked like she was strangled.... uhhh maybe I strangled her). Ryan will get a fair trial outside of IC. The leaked document was deemed admissible because it is an important piece of information. The jury can accept some or all of it as truth. I really hope the jury gets to meet Ryan’s pal Bo. I’m pretty sure they will.

Something like this.Pretend I’m Bo: We’re gonna say it was an accident - you hit her and she died. I mean you’ re the one that got us all in this mess. If not for you, this never would have happened. I would say it was me but my grandfather has done a lot for this town ...blah blah (insert any other names and the more there may have been the more persuaded Ryan becomes) .... and listen I AM TRYING TO HELP YOU. you’re on drugs and need money - you broke in.... we’ll toss her purse (supports burglary) ....And I HAD to burn her or we’re screwed for sure - you and me (insert anyone else) both. JUST LISTEN TO ME!!!! And sure enough with Bo directing - by luck or by corruption, no one did anything. Even when friends were told straight up they had destroyed Tara’s life and body while having a few beers and yapping about themselves. I’m not saying this is what happened but how it could happen. And Bo is now adding sexual suggestions and strangulation -wasn’t part of the story. Ryan seemed consistent he did not take anything from her, she was clothed, we notice he was unabl e to identify the burning location (how in the world would he NOT know that spot blind???). @slick has commented above Ryan told slick during questioning Ryan said ‘ask bo’. That’s not in the leak - could be in other documents, could be a lie. Who knows.

Just watched the segment on WSBTV. A few brief recordings were played. One of the recordings played was of Ryan saying Bo had told him he had done it and Ryan didn’t believe it. Tony Thomas also reported 2 motions were filed this week. One for the state to pay for an expert witness on false testimony, the other was for the defense to obtain out of state subpoena power in order to help them track down the leaker of the confessions.

I thought the "out of state" part was intriguing.

I did also @georgia. Could be helpful for reaching individuals they might need for other aspects of the case. For example, two LE agents who were involved in the case mentioned on here as no longer being in the state of GA.

Ga and Sandie, I didn’t catch that. Do you remember which article or recording you saw that about out of state? Thx.

It was on the news but is also now online....Merchant has filed several new motions this week, including asking the state to pay for a defense expert to talk about false confessions. Duke's defense team is also asking the judge for out-of-state subpoena powers so it can do its own investigation into who might have leaked the GBI documents.

Not sure how this post wound up on wrong thread - I didn’t do it 😏 @buster the motions information was at the end of the television segment. Tony appeared to have a copy of the motions and pointed out there are 2 from this week and he briefly highlighted the subject of each on

This post also went on wrong thread :/ Oh well - @Os....I motion a new thread be started! This one’s getting tough to navigate. But I’m placing it here as it relates to a segment of this discussion. FYI noticed the Reddit timeline has removed the time of the 411 call from the timeline. The person who creates the timeline was asked about the time and said he/she thought they’d seen that time mentioned on the board but unable to locate that mention so removed the time.
