Default Lets talk about Tammy Leppert again

I know this is a popular case for discussion around here but since it was aired today I would like to bring it up again. For those unfamiliar with the case Tammy Leppert, was a beautiful young girl from Cocoa Beach, Florida who was a successful model and was beginning to appear in bit roles in films such as "Scarface". However shorly after filming a movie called "Spring Break" Tammy began to behave very strangely to her mother acting very paranoid and stating that somebody was trying to kill her because she "heard/saw" something she shouldn't have. Robert Stack mentioned that Tammy might have had some information about money laundering that was occuring in Florida at the time. On July 6, 1983 Tammy got into a heated arguement with a friend of hers who dropped her off at a local bank and from there Tammy simply vanished - never to be seen again.

Several theories have arisen about what happened to Ms. Leppert, among them

1) She was murdered by either Christopher Wilder or John Crutchley both notorious murders who police suspect may have been involved in the disappearance of Tammy.

2) Tammy fears about the money laundering incident might have lead to her death. She might have come in contact with some criminal activity due to her film career and saw something she shouldn't have

3) From Tammy's sister Suzanne "Tammy apparently wanted some money back that someone owed her and Tammy said if this person did not pay her back she would tell on this person.Maybe she did.This person threatened to kill her.I feel and think we will find out what happened to Tammy and hopefully where she is through this last lead.I think this person should be the # 1 suspect in Tammy's disappearance."

4) It could be possible that this whole disappearance was staged by Leppert herself in a way as her mother put it "to go into hiding"

5) It is possible that Tammy Leppert was suffering from some type of untreated and undiagnosed mental illness (perhaps schizophrenia) which usually shows up for the first time in young people around Tammy's age. While the exact causes of this illness are unknown there are hundreds of cases that can be cited. If left untreated this disease can basically paralyze its victim with fear and lead to dillusions and mental breakdowns.

Any theories on what occured here? - I'd probably side with point #5 but anything is possible with this one.

I was hoping to catch this story and record it sometime but I got up intime to see the opening credits finish and did not see the brief overview of the cases that would be shown. Echoes of Fear, is this one of the stories you are hoping to add to your d/l section?

I have another theory about her dissapearance. She was always in the spot light from a very young age, by her teen years she had been in over 200 beauty pageants. The avarge person who takes part in such things usually never even takes part in a notable fraction of that number. As RS staed, she was "unusually beautiful". Despite all the obvious good things to come from taking part in so many of those contests, there could very well have been a very hidden negative aspect to all of it that only Tammy knew about, something she felt she could not let onto anyone else becuase so many knew her as the winning beauty queen, whom she maybe did not want to be. The ordeal could have been a means to escape all the pressure to please others. A chance to show a new side, that she was more than than just a teen with amazing looks, and wanted people to see somethig else in her.

This segment was recently aired so I doubt I'll add it to the files section although I do have it for the future.

I think the friend that she got in a heated argument with and was last seen with should be considered a suspect. I just find it hard to believe that he just dropped her off (at a gas station parking lot?) in broad daylight and nobody saw her. Unless she got into a car with somebody she knew AFTERwards, it seems unlikely that she could have went into hiding with no money on her and in bare feet no less.

Yeah. I did not mean add it right away. It's good that you have it to add later though.

Anyway I just tried to d/l one and than I got a message saying that windows media player could not open the file. What are the requirements to d/l and play these clips?

Unhappy

22 years ago tomorrow(7/6/83)...

I wonder if the fact that she was 3 months pregnant has anything to do with her disappearance? (An illegal abortion gone wrong ala Judy Himes, perhaps?) Obviously she talked to someone about her pregnancy, I wonder if her friends or family knew who the father was? She might have wanted to have the baby but was warned that doing so would ruin her career, so she chose to run away. Of course, as dynoguy pointed out, there is always the possibility that the guy she was last seen with didn't really drop her off at the bank like he says...no one but him reported seeing her there. I hope her sister Suzanne finds out an answer to this mystery soon 'cuz it must be horribly frustrating!

I would like to see it eventually. I don't get Lifetime, being in Canada, and it's been many years since I've seen it.

Do they? I'll have to investigate. They showed UM (only the 2001/2 seasons, but still..) on Prime until last year.

When I was in the service stationed in San Diego I was dating a young women who was manic depressive. I was driving north on I-5 and she started to "act" crazy. I pulled over on the inside shoulder just south of Carlsbad and dropped her off. Not my proudest moment, but at the time I felt it would be better to dump her. She got picked up by someone who saw me drop her off and taken to Mountain View CA. She went willingly. Her parents freaked out and accused me at first of doing something terrible. She resurfaced 2 weeks later bubbly and alright. I stayed on base for a long time.

Desparate For Takeoff, where the guy jumped onto the moving plane and then fell off at a high altitude. Maybe I need to update my version of Windows Media.

I have to agree with DarkDante's # 5 theory. I think she might of had some kind of undiagnosed mental illness. And probably after getting dropped off by the friend, someone came by and picked her up. One thing that stuck in my mind was that when Tami left for the last time, the mother was on the phone! If it was my daughter and I knew she had been having breakdowns, you can bet your @$$ that I would of hung up the phone to find out where she was going, with who, etc...but she just let her go!

I tried it and it played fine. I'm using Windows Media Player 10 series so you may need to upgrade.

Wait a minute, when was it ever said that she was 3 months pregnant when she vanished? I don't remember hearing that.
