Also, as far as Wayne's involvement goes, if you take out that incoherent statement he made about how "only the Lord could judge him" then his interview is very normal. As a matter of fact, I was on the fence about his involvement, leaning toward innocent until he made that statement. But, even with that statement, he doesn't say anything that incriminates him. He just sounds like a dumb a$$.

Wayne Hecker had a total of approximately two hours to travel to the strip club, cut Tara's belt, somehow time this perfectly to where he did all this right around the time she was allowed to leave early for the night (how he would know this, I have no idea), follow her, pick her up, kill her for reasons unknown, dump her body in a way that it's never been found to this day, and then make it back to the pool hall. I don't believe this is even remotely possible. I've always thought that Hecker left the pool hall to do something nefarious (buy drugs possibly) which is why he wasn't as forthcoming with his alibi at the time.

Yep exactly. Plus this is back when cell phones were a rarity. It's not like she called him on her way out to let him know. The area that she worked at and the area that he was at that night really aren't that far apart. Maybe a 10 minute drive with no traffic. But I do agree that he was probably doing something he shouldn't be. Hooker, drugs, etc..

You would really have to know this guy a little bit to understand him and you would have had to live in Houston to know what the night life was like in the early 90s. She often called to let Wayne know she was leaving.

I doubt he hid the body so well it has not been discovered but lets describe the area, from Downtown, on the top floor of the tallest building, you can not see any houses. Bayous, woods and ditches cut through every where. It is the edge of the Big Thicket. There are wooded areas that have not had any traffic in, well, Many Many Years. Houston is just now going through a boom has a ton of Unidentified women in the database. One very curious one is Case Number: ML92-6618 Harris County, Texas This girl fits the time line, size and weight. She was also found just miles from Fat Freddys. 6 miles to be exact and well within the old stomping grounds.

If you want an idea of how many Unidentified bodies have been found in Houston over the past years check out this article:

I know there have been a lot of bodies recovered recently in Arizona too. I think it *may* have something to do with bordering Mexico. Texas would be similar in that regard.

Do you know Wayne Heckert? Also, how would she call him if he wasn't home? If he had a cell phone, I would like to assume the police checked calls to his phone to see if she did alert him that she was leaving early. If so, then that points this case in a whole new direction.

Did the segment say Hecker received a phone call at the pool hall before leaving?

Good points that you and others that knew Tara and Wayne have made on here. It sounds like there are conflicting statements about her car, was the alternator belt actually missing, or was the car in operable condition when it was found?

The timeline is questionable, certainly not set in stone, and there are several hours unaccounted for, not just the period that Wayne and his friend left and returned to the pool hall. There are only Wayne's claims that he was looking for Tara between 5 - 7 am. From what I recall, there's been no independent verification of their statements about looking for Tara or locating the car at 7 am. If the alternator belt actually was removed or damaged, it could have been done after the car was parked on the side of the interstate. If Tara's car did break down, it's strange that she didn't take her mace nor turned her hazards or alarm on, even if she went off with someone she was acquainted with.

Tara easily could have called Wayne at the bar, since it was the place he seems to have usually patronized. Even if Wayne or his friend didn't have cell phones, plenty of people back then had pagers. It Tara was known by her acquaintances to routinely call Wayne when she was leaving, that night probably didn't vary that much from the norm. If Wayne and his friend actually asked the manager of Fat Freddie's to claim to police that they never left, that's suspicious as well.

No. That's why I asked that other person if they were aware of information like that that wasn't covered in the segment.

Wayne and Dennis asked me several times to tell police that he never left.
Being there and seeing they way the two acted it was not hard to come to the conclusion that Wayne was involved. It makes me sick that she has not been found. Later my wife (a waitress and my girlfriend at Freddie's back then) told me that she ran across Dennis Burns at which time they started discussing Tara and Wayne, suddenly told my wife that they kidnapped her and sold her into the sex slave business.
The person who posted that Wayne was a cocaine dealer is in fact correct. Dennis was one as well. Knowing that I do believe it maybe possible thats what happened. But I really doubt that.
Dennis has a brother named Chad. I don't believe Chad was involved. But I do think he was told by Dennis what really happened to her.
I have heard that Dennis died from a drug over dose years later. I do not know for sure that is true, when my wife and I researched it there was records of a Dennis Burns dying of a drug over dose.

I pray that the truth will come out about Tara. I truely pray that who ever is in fact to blame for her disappearance is found out and punished properly.

Keep here story alive by posting and reposting to bring more attention and maybe something will happen.

I want to believe you because you're posting names that weren't common knowledge or said on the Unsolved Mysteries broadcast. But, why would your girlfriend not go to the police and tell them what he told her?
