I made one of those 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.

A lot of advice were to start who to talk to advice. If you got somebody, Wales? We do now, Did you go to Ocilla town where I lived and was last seen, make sure you bring somebody with you? Maybe I was reading into that too much either way I planned on taking his advice. It was time for me to start talking to people. I want it inside from people who knew her people who talk to her that we can before she disappeared. I picked up a long list of names,

the phone and I introduce myself before. about ten minutes later I got a call from a block number answered it Unfortunately, I was not able to record the call which I immediately regretted You ask me about Tier Grinstead, high costs in the documentary and his tone changed a bit. Then he said Didn't we have an answer for him. Then he said do not I wish I had the audio to play back for you, but there is something really odd about they call the person sound call me just say, don't call her again.
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.

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.
