PLEASE REPORT THIS TO THE POLICE, AND/OR TARA'S FAMILY. At the very least, the family can hire a PI to further investigate.

Immediately after viewing this case, I suspected the boyfriend, from his demeanor, eye movements and statements. I do recall the segment also pointing out that he was very jealous and possessive, and their relationship being rocky.

As far as her car trouble, why would she abandon her car, not taking her mace or purse, with NO SIGNS OF A STRUGGLE? She was abducted by someone she KNEW.

Given your testimony, I must agree that it was the boyfriend. PLEASE, report your info to the police and Tara's family.
You will probably want to e-mail her if possible since she's not a regular poster here and probably doesn't read the forum every day or much at all.

Thanks, wiseguy182. Done, I emailed JOAT and another poster who seemed to have some info; gave them the Houston PD telephone # and the email address of a family member.

However, I read that Wayne Hecker is dead. Still, it would be good to possibly find out from a friend or relative of his, where Tara's remains can be found.

I really hope people with pertinent information on cases just call the police. They can always remain anonymous. So much better than posting on a message board.

Looks like (a very ill) him. Last activity was in 2011. Apparantly he died in October 2015 of cancer.

That does look like it could be him and the timeline would seem to fit since that Wayne Hecker graduated from high school in Houston in 1989.

This is the first I've ever heard about Wayne possibly being dead, but he does look pretty sickly in that photo. That would fit the narrative of him dying of cancer.

Those comments are interesting. One of them is from a guy claiming to be a former bartender at the club where Tara worked. He claims that Tara was having problems with a customer around the time of her disappearance. Others who have claimed to have worked there in the past claim that they were big into cocaine distribution, and that another female worker who worked there was murdered after Tara's disappearance.

I agree that it could be him. The eyebrows, nose, and mouth all appear similar.

Yeah, the comments are interesting. I believe someone on here mentioned that Wayne also sold cocaine.

Anyways, from what I've read on this forum and the other one, the general consensus from anyone who personally knew either Wayne or Tara or both....all feel that he killed her. That speaks volumes to me.

But there are a decent amount of people in those comments who defend him, and say that Hecker legitimately wanted to find Tara.

True, but there were specific comments by a few of Wayne's (alleged) associates about him acting very strange the night she disappeared; a significant period of time where he left the pool hall with his (now deceased) friend, and came back acting odd and aggressive. All the while, he failed to mention to the police that he left the pool hall that night for a few hours that night, in a time frame that correlated with Tara's disappearance.

Oddly enough, this morning Tara's episode was on. I hadn't seen it in years and Wayne's demeanor and comments were even more sketchy than I remember.

I re-watched the segment earlier just to dust off the cobwebs. A couple of things come to mind:

1. The manager of the club states that one of the bouncers walked Tara to her car. I've seen a few people theorize that someone jumped in her car and abducted her as she was leaving. This should put that to rest.

2. It is not mentioned whether or not Tara called or tried to call Wayne (presumably at the pool hall as this was a time before everyone had a cell phone) to let him know that she was leaving early. Wayne states in the segment that he did not know that she left early as he called her earlier in her shift and he was told she was busy and could not come to the phone.

3. Tara did not usually volunteer to leave early. Why was this night different? Maybe she had a headache or was tired. Who knows. But one thing that bugs me is this customer who wrote letters to her. The police stated that they questioned him and do not believe him to be involved. Fine. But one of those letters said "I am so glad you have agreed to marrie me." (notice the spelling error) People don't just say that to one another. Was this a serious relationship or some whacked out horny guy who frequented strips clubs? If he was the latter, then I doubt police would have cleared him so quickly. Could she have used her getting off work early as a reason to go and see this other guy?

4. Per the UM segment, Tara left the club at approximately 12:29am and Wayne left the pool hall (per the testimony of employees at the pool hall)between 12:00 - 12:30am and returned around 1:45am. The segment said Wayne's absence from the pool hall was for an hour and 45 minutes, but that's assuming that he left at midnight. The detective clearly states that the testimonies of those who worked in the pool hall gave times between 12 and 12:30. If you put his departure time at 12:30, then it would only give Wayne a little over an hour to kill Tara, dispose of her body and place her car on the freeway in the exact position it was found. Not to mention, he would have to walk/run/jog back to the pool hall.

5. The segment mentions that when they found Tara's car, her alternator belt was gone. Not cut or damaged, but gone. I'm not a car expert but your alternator belt doesn't just fall off. It sure does seem like someone tampered with her vehicle, hoping it would break down or have some kind of issue. Something that indicates someone other than Wayne, unless of course Wayne did this after killing Tara.

I used to think that, without a doubt, Wayne was the killer. But the more I think about it, the more I'm not so sure.

Based on the information I provided above, in my opinion the only scenario for Wayne to be the killer, that makes sense, is if Tara called Wayne (either at the pool hall or on a cell phone, assuming he had one) to tell him that she was leaving early and he decided to meet her at the apartment. Maybe they got into an argument and he killed her, either by accident or on purpose. Then, in a haste, he immediately gets rid of her body to a still yet to be discovered location. My guess is he dumped her body in a random dumpster. Then he takes her car from the apartment and parks it on the freeway, where he would later "find" it. For him to do this, it would mean that he had an accomplice. How else would he have been able to drop the car and get back to the pool hall without running/walking there? And if he did run/walk, he would have been covered in sweat since this was in the August heat in Texas.

I think it's just as likely that someone tampered with her vehicle and followed her until she had to pull over. A random serial killer is also possible. I just do not think it is as open and shut as I used to when it comes to Wayne's guilt. There are just too many things that do not make sense.
