We all want an answer. An explanation for the unexplained, like a lot of people, have been pretty obsessive, podcast Cereal and the Netflix Series making a murderer. I thought to myself what I made one of those So I literally just went to Google and started searching I'm from Atlanta, so I wanted to find a case that was local that I can actually investigate. I eventually ended up on the website for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, the top ten list of unsolved crimes in Georgia. The first one I saw was a missing persons case. A girl named Tara Grinstead have been missing for over ten years now, and they had no suspects and they had no leads. Needless to say, I was instantly fascinated, so I read tons of articles about the case and threw my amateur internet investigation.

Did you see quota of one of the locals near comes me, it's millennial, podcaster. Trying to solve the mystery. I thought to myself off to one day the girl, who was friends with terror back in two thousand five feel comfortable, saying her name right now, so call her Susan Susan the phone and I introduce myself before.
And finish terrorist name. She had hung up on me. about ten minutes later I got a call from a block number answered it I was trying to figure out my phone or quarter at that point. Unfortunately, I was not able to record the call which I immediately regretted stern man's voice. On the other lie. When I answered he said why You ask me about Tier Grinstead, it was almost like he was investigating me now. I told you about high costs in the documentary and his tone changed a bit. Then he said Did you call Susan. Didn't we have an answer for him. Then he said do not all her again. Click just like that. I wish I had the audio to play back for you, but there is something really odd about they call the person sound like a police officer or someone in law enforcement, trying to figure out what I knew call me just say, don't call her again. The first thing he wanted to know was why,
was calling that particular person here she is living gentleman, not gallery Royal Highness, because I think it is a very terror. Grinstead hurried mischief to get ready to go over to Columbus, representing over there already excited.

I just completed my first year teaching and allocating at any that's a local news interview for ninety ninety nine. When tear when the treaty pageant for Miss Tipton, the biggest city, Nero Scylla and she was moving on to compete for Miss Georgia, she seemed to have everything going for she was popular among students, all the teachers loved her, but in October two thousand five. She would disappear without a trace and never be seen again. Who would want to hurt? Terror was recap the night of October twenty second, when tear it is completely vanished on my friend Rob described the scene Saturday October. Twenty second, two thousand five Tara went to a beauty pageant during the day, and then she attended a friend's barbecue later that night. Just a couple blocks away from her home. She arrived around eight p m and stayed for a few hours. Friends at the party said she was acting normal, nothing out of the ordinary. Around eleven p M terror told a friend at the party. She was going home to watch the video tape from the pageant that day she said her goodbyes drove off. She was never seen again. Monday came in terror, didn't show up for work. When the Bell rang for class to start in terror, wasn't there, students inform the faculty and they called the local police department. The chief of Syllables Bill Hancock was the first to arrive on the scene. Her car was parked in her driveway and the front door was locked ass. He approached her front door. Hancock discovered a blue latex glove just feet from her doorstep. Even more puzzling. He found a business card wedged in the front door. The neighbours and elderly couple had a spare key to terrorists house. They were really close to terror and they kept watch on her house at night. They had a little system going every night when terror came home. She turned on the land by the window in a room facing their house. That night terrorist lamp was never turned on. Hancock use the neighbors key to gain entry to terrorists home. The house was a mere perfect condition, but there were a few subtle things: they seemed a little off. The lampshade on her bed was knocked askew tilted in an odd position as if maybe it had been knocked over the clock. Normally on her nightstand was found on the floor by her bed. Her cell phone was found sitting at its charges on the night. Stand. Hancock quickly realized the severity of this case. He made a call to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation for backup and official investigation is under way.

There is not than ever come of anything. and this case is cold as Alaska to terrorist sister, Anita higher Maurice to help with the investigation, and he wasn't involved until March two thousand six, almost five whole months after she went missing. one of the things that obvious when I was there is, how do the local law, people clambered and went out so much more than other no talk in this case. Oh yeah, and still today, Here there are two
GPS up some others that were there appear to be a struggle. There's. No one GB asked me that when anything well, this is what I found since she had the old time we wouldn't floors were did get. in between them. So I got on my knees.
