Theory

In one of the episodes there was an interview with someone that stated Tara may have gone to the Pecan orchard and overdosed. Payne said he thought it was weird because Tara didn't do drugs or drink, but what if she did that night? I cant shake the feeling that this story would align better with the facts of the case. What if Tara did know Ryan and she met up with him for a bonfire after she got back from the BBQ. I am curious about this theory because it would seem to explain why there was mud on her tires, why her door was locked, and why her dog was left outside. Maybe she knew Ryan as this has been stated as a possibility in another episode. She met up with Ryan and Bo at the orchard for a party. She wasn't in the best state because she was grieving about her breakup with Marcus and was talked into either taking drugs or maybe she could have been drugged by Ryan or Bo. People have stated that Tara wouldn't do that, but she did act out of character at the BBQ by eating meat when she doesn't eat meat. So there is some evidence for acting out of character. Also the f act that she expressly stated she was going home after the BBQ to watch a pageant video is odd because of how specific it was. Usually people don't do that unless its not true. Also the pageant video was never found. Maybe she was devastated from the breakup with Marcus and went to this party to get it off her mind. Tried some sort of drug or maybe was drugged and ended up overdosing. Ryan and Bo panicked and believed her to be dead. Instead of reporting it and getting in trouble for drugs and possibly looking like they killed a woman, they decided to cover it up. So they drove her car back to her house so it wouldn't look like that Ryan and Bo were involved. Dumped her keys and purse because there were fingerprints on them and then came back to the orchard to burn the body. That would explain the muddy tires and why Brooke said they took "her car". I guess this wouldn't explain the broken lamp in the house, but when you are going through a breakup things are hard. Maybe that was broken a different way and Tara just had not replaced it yet. A lamp is the last thing you are concerned with when you are depressed. And it sounded like she was having a really hard time given the emails to Marcus' mom. I am sure there are many flaws with this theory, but thought I would share. People act out of character when they are grieving from a break up or other loss and she may have not been herself and gotten into a bad situation. Thoughts??

Okay...this is actually a pretty good theory!! It doesn't explain the mess inside but if Ryan and Bo had anything to do with it, this would make a good story.

I’d always thought this as a potential theory too. What if Ryan and/or Bo followed her from the theatre/bbq to home then broke in and drugged/injected her w heroin AT her house hence broken lamp and necklace THEN they took her to the pecan orchard where they potentially assaulted her and she OD’d. The truth Could be a combination of these theories.

I think this could be a plausible theory. They could have just staged her house to look like there appeared to be a break in. Seems like Bo has turned out to be quite the mastermind of a criminal. I truly believe there is so much more to what really happened to her than we will ever know.

I definitely do not believe she was sleeping in bed and he startled her. Her dog would not have been outside if she came home and went to bed. She would have had the dog inside the house with her before she settled in for the night. Women are creatures of habit...

I have ALWAYS been a firm believer in the fact that Tara had something going on with Ryan. Maybe that night was the first time they had met up, maybe not. I think they had something cooking before then. I don't think it was anything serious, I just think Tara was being a single woman who was enjoying the company of an array of men. Maybe she was doing this bc of the breakup, lashing out, getting crazy, trying new things, partying. Or maybe she just enjoyed the company of a man enjoyed sex. Who cares? Nothing wrong with that right? That being said, I think she went to party with them somewhere, whether it be the orchard or not, and I think she was there bc of Ryan. And then I think Bo, being the despicable sickening excuse of a human being that he is, tried something or did something, it went wrong, and Bo used Ryan and made him help with disposal, therefore making him take part in it. I think Ryan was the weaker one of the two and Bo has scared him and threatened him all the way into takimg the fall for everything. I think his confession was false. And I do not t hink Tara was at all murdered in her house. None of it adds up for me. And they have nothing on Ryan. Or sadly, Bo for that matter. We will never know what exactly happened. And that's sad.

I actually believe a combination of a few of these theories. I don't think Tara was hurt at her home but I think her home was staged to look like she had been there and there was a struggle. I don't know, though, how she would have met anyone without setting up the meeting on her phone which would have shown up in the records... unless she ran into one of them at the gas station or something and was told about a "get together" at the pecan orchard.

Has anyone ever considered the short but possible gap in Marcus harpers alibi, the lack of motive by Ryan, the emails to mrs. Harper, Bo having considered being a soldier of fortune, and the possibility that there was some collusion between the PD and these guys to commit and cover Tara’s murder? I’m behind so I could have completely missed this being addressed...
