Another sad story

This story has been all over the front pages of the newspapers and on all of the news channels for three weeks, and has made it on Fox News Channel as well as Nancy Grace and was to be profiled on America's Most Wanted tonight. Now, it has come to a sad conclusion.

Tara Grant, a 34 year old mom from the same county as me, disappeared on February 9 after arguring with her husband about the number of business trips she had to take. He said someone called her, and she left. When she didn't show up for work, he finally reported her missing on Valentines Day. Telephone records have shown that no one called Tara, and the day after reporting her missing, her husband hired an attorney, wouldn't take a lie detector test, would not turn over computers, would not let them look in the house, and would only communicate with the police through his attorney. Then, like the Laci Petterson case, an ex-girlfriend came out with emails that Stephen Grant sent to her 2 weeks before Tara went missing trying to start up an affair with her, calling marriage vows liek speed limits, that sometimes they need to be broken.

Police were finally able to obtain a search warrant for their house and the gruesome discovery of Tara's torso was found in the garage. They then searched a nearby park and recently found more body parts suspected to be Tara's. Stephen is now missing, and two children are going to be without their mother, and as it looks, their father as well.

I know this is a long shot, but you never know. Though only a few people read this blog, I want to get this info out there. Stephen is suspected of driving a 2006 yellow Dodge Ram truck with Michigan license plates 9FL-R57. Maybe just keep an eye out. He has been gone since late last night, so he could be far gone by now. Justice needs to be done for this young mother, and I just want to get the word out there. I am not sure if America's Most Wanted is still going to be airing the case, but I will be watching!

Next time, I promise not so much depressing news.

I'm getting here a bit late, but didn't they find him later? And it really is a very sad story for her family! It's even closer isn't it when something like this happens so close to you.

Yes they did, up north in the lower pennisula. He has supposedly confessed, but you would think instead of putting his family (ie kids) through all of this, he plead not guilty.
