My theory on what really happened the night Tara was murdered

Would it have been possible for Tara to have been at this party in the pecan orchard? She had previously had a relationship with Anthony Vickers so maybe hooking up with former students isn't exactly off the table, so she is invited to and attends a party which has Ryan and Bo in attendance. What I'm thinking is one of two things may have happened. Either maybe something had been slipped in her drink and either she had overdosed and died on whatever it was or she was sexually assaulted and murdered. The cover up began with Tara's body being left in the pecan orchard and someone driving her car back home with Ryan's truck following to pick up the person dropping off Tara's car. This would explain Tara's car's chair being pushed back. Does anyone agree with this theory at all as the burglary makes no sense to me at all.

doesn't seem plausible.... her clothes were at home and her phone at home plugged in... doubt they'd think to take the phone and plug it in and her clothes

I think Ryan got drunk and went in to her house with intentions to rape her.. After all, he thought his other teacher was "hot" and sent her a message to tell her.

It is possible that Tara was going to meet someone she didn't want anyone to know about tho. She did tell people at the BBQ that she was going home to watch a video of the pageant, when no video existed. As we know, RD didn't have a cell phone at the time and also didn't have a car. It makes the whole him planning on meeting her thing a little impossible for a guy like that to plan . When I first looked up pecan wood on google one of the first things that comes up is how hot the wood burns at, it pangs of someone who knew what they were doing. RD abd BD were used to covering for each other even in high school... it sounds like they pretty much stopped hanging out shortly after Tara went missing. All of the circumstantial evidence would suggest that RD couldn't have planned any of it.
