Lex, what you laid out is reasonable and possible. However, (shelving the issues with LE not finding out about this alleged relationship of sorts between Tara and Ryan - because seriously, these are the same people who had Bo and Ryan’s names all this time and contacted Ryan BEFORE having Bo reach out. @$*!) Ryan himself admits involvement in concealing Tara’s death - at least his attorney said as much: that Ryan admits he was involved, just not with what he is currently charged. But, why would Bo and Ben need Ryan’s help to begin with? There would be two of them, both of whom owned trucks, and Ryan claims he was asleep...so why would they take such an unnecessary risk by involving Ryan? That would be another person, who allegedly had a relationship with the victim, with knowledge of the crime. It just honestly doesn’t make sense. I think Ryan had to have been involved the whole time, whether he was alone or not. Still keeping an open mind for what the defense presents at trial, but that’s where I stand with what we know at this point.
They needed Ryan to be the fall guy. Blame it on the guy who blacks out. Tell him he did it.
Sometimes I wonder if the truth is sprinkled like glitter in this case. BD claims he was told by RD on Sunday afternoon that TG was dead, he had killed her. I wonder if the three boys plus Tara or whoever were all out there. RD did black out, but in the orchard. He wakes up to find that she's dead. If he and BM were left out there how would RD know if BD knew she was dead?? Maybe RD and BM were the two who drove her car back home. RD would need a ride from someone to get back to the house b/c he didn't have a car. BD has been consistent with his story over the years. Maybe RD did go home to tell him that she had died. It's likely BD already knew that but let RD think he had no idea that she had died. It also makes sense as to why BD always said that RD wouldn't tell him WHY he killed her. BD knows how and why she died, he just can't come up with that much detail for a lie. I remember RD brother's (SD) testimony when he stated that BD told him that his brother had killed TG. They were at a party, and BD was with BM when he told him. Then he threw in "just kidding...don't tell anyone". I feel like BD went around running his mouth so freely b/c he felt like he could minimize his involvement. Obviously he's guilty of more than what he's admitting to b/c no innocent person would involve themselves in a serious crime like the one at hand.
I think a simple answer for her cell phone being left on charge is she came home and the battery was low from using it all day and then she decided to leave and left it because she knew it wasn't charged yet.
Bee, I agree but I can’t figure out how BD ex-wife knew about TG last text message that said “I’m cold”. I too believe that she returned home to change clothes and charge her phone. I believe it was left in her home while she went to the orchard (willingly or not). JM first statement said that BD told him that a boyfriend of TG came to him saying “I fucked up”. If you think that RD and TG had some sort of relationship, it sort of fits JM testimony about BD friend coming to him saying I fucked up. However, this looks bad for RD. If he was inside her home and he’s the one who saw the text message to another man “I’m cold” and that’s what lead to him attacking and killing her. Idk I’m just trying to figure out how ED (she would know through BD) would have the knowledge of TG text that said I’m cold. Maybe her post was unrelated but we have to keep in mind that she dressed as a dead beauty queen for Halloween. Oh, and that she was married to BD and knew that happened to Tara.
Hypothetical 1: The tweet doesn’t actually have anything to do with Tara, and ED was really just cold. Hypothetical 2: The tweet is in reference to Tara’s last text because Bo heard about it through the grapevine of people discussing Tara’s disappearance. Or maybe a news clip and/or article. This will probably be one of the details we’ll never have a concrete explanation for.
You’re probably right...we will never know. It seems like her post plus Halloween costume were slaps in the face. DV was likely right. At least a dozen people knew about her murder 💔
Is Bo still married to ED?
I have always found ED's posts very disturbing. I think it is highly likely that she may know more of the story than BD has told to others. I remember BD said she blackmailed him. Does anyone have her costume photo?
Disturbing for sure! Especially since 4/30/09 at 7:30 am it was almost 80 degrees. Also BD told JS that he told ED in 08 or 09. She likely posted that to send a message to BD. What’s weird, though, is ED and BD ended up splitting up after all and she never came forward.
ED’s “I’m cold” tweet was at 8:26am EST. It surely wasn’t as cold as it was at 9:30pm in South Korea where the temperatures range from 40’s to low 50’s so there’s that.
They were in Korea?
I think this along w the costume are things we probably won’t know if they are relevant or not. I truly doubt she will cop to these on the stand. Maybe I’m wrong.
@Sea , interesting , learned something new today. Thought people attracted to criminals were just creepy as hell. Now I learn they might actually get sexual arousal and pleasure from dating rapist and murderers. Still creepy
There is a lid for every pot.
Amen! Both ED and BS are special, for sure!!
You should be using the season one discussion board. Not season 2. it gets confusing.
It was a mistake
