When I was a senior in high school, there was a freshman who died crossing the road...wearing a Walkman. Never heard the truck that barreled through him. I went to his funeral. It was quite sad.
The headphones would have been risky but the location was the biggest factor that helped the boys to so easily discard the evidence. From what I've seen, that's a very lonely stretch of highway with no homes, gas stations or exits in view. It's basically nothing more than a desert and a road. I don't know if that area of New Mexico didn't have traditional bike paths or not but I guess she preferred to bike on that highway anyway. Tara was insanely active. Her plans that day, after doing 30 miles on her bike, was to eat lunch and then play tennis with her boyfriend.

Those boys don't get away with this if she had biked in a neighborhood or a park where witnesses are sure to be. If you strike someone off their bike in a neighborhood, you can't clean up the blood off the pavement in a matter of seconds and then drag the body and bike in your van. But on that desert highway, you simply kick some dirt to cover the evidence with no problem.

In a news segment from this past November from the forbidden site, the lead investigator says they are still gathering more and more evidence every month.

Tara disappeared from Belen, New Mexico on September 20, 1988.

The Polaroid was found in Port St. Joe, Florida, in June, 1989. It was taken on film not available until May 1989.

This article gives a good overview of everything.

http://missing87975.yuku.com/topic/3392#.U5MjOSimXgI

It does not explain how Tara's parents found out about the photo, but goes in to some detail about why they think it is Tara.

I would surmise the photo was linked to Tara because of the similarities the parents pointed out. I seem to recall reading somewhere (though I can't pinpoint where) that Tara's favorite author was V.C. Andrews - author of the "My Sweet Audrina" novel also depicted in the Polaroid.

I still think the connection is pretty tenuous. Henley's parents seemed just as sure that was him in the Polaroid and we know how that turned out.

I don't disagree with you about serial killers taking pictures and videos of their victims. Dahmer did it, as did others (e.g., Homolka and Bernardo, Lake and Ng).

The difference here for me is a few things. First, as you said, few allow their stuff to be seen. The pictures are usually taken for self gratification. Thus, leaving a photo like this in such a public place (assuming it wasn't accidentally dropped), seems out of character for the profile.

Second, if we assume that such a perp exists we have to also assume the following...

1. He targets children.
2. He targets boys and girls.
3. He targets boys and girls of different ages.
4. He has no problem keeping multiple victims alive simultaneously.

Given what we know about pedophiles, this doesn't jibe because most have gender and age preferences, most don't harbor multiple victims at the same time, and most child abductions are committed for sexual purposes and the children are killed very soon after they are abducted - this is why recovering a missing child within the first 48 hours is considered so crucial by LE.

On top of all of the other inconsistencies, we would have to believe that the guy likes an audience.

While it's not impossible, the offender in this instance would be pretty "atypical" to say the least, and I can't help but find the whole thing questionable.

Therefore, I still maintain that a pornography/abuse type deal is going on, or its some kind of bizarre hoax or joke. Perhaps a group of kids wanted it to look like a "being held captive for ransom" type deal was going on as part of some "cops and robbers" type scenario. Weren't similar scenarios part of films that were popular at the time and that young adults would have thought were "cool" (e.g., "Die Hard", the "Dirty Harry" movies)?

I'm glad you responded.

Do you have any thoughts on the bruising on the boy's neck as discovered by posters on WS?

Its the one issue that is preventing me from completely writing the whole thing off as a hoax. It could be indicative of strangulation, choking, or some other type of restraint.

While we're on the subject of child abductions, I recently found out that abducted/abused children tend to HATE things associated with their captors (this is very understandable).

I don't know how many of you are familiar with the Clayton Moss story. It was on Oprah once. His father would do such things as lock him in a closet and urinate on him. His mother did nothing to assist her son. Well, he hates oldies music because they would crank that up all the time to drown out his cries for help.

There was also a girl, can't remember her name but she was profiled with Jacob Wetterling on a recent 20/20 episode on ID. She said she hates coffee because her abductor would drink it all the time.

I remember someone mentioning on the forum that V.C. Andrews was a very popular author with young girls of Tara's generation back then and it would not necessarily be a surprise to see an Andrews book in the possession of any number of girls back then.

For me personally, once I began looking into the case a bit and comparing the photos, I didn't come to the conclusion that the girl in the photograph was Tara Calico. For me, the Calico disappearance speaks of a sexually motivated crime/homicide and combined with the vast landscape available to the abductor in which to dispose a body is likely the reason why her remains have never been located.

I've tried to find the photo (or a larger more clear version) but the only ones I've seen, I cannot make out any bruising on the boy. I don't even think they were tied up, IMO. Because if this were in fact 2 abducted children, and whoever was taking the photo was doing this for some sort of sick pleasure, wouldn't he have wanted it displayed prominently that both were bound and gagged? Shouldn't they have had their hands tied and laying in front of them instead of behind? Tack on the fact that the kids both looked groomed and somewhat neat in appearance (the girl's legs are shaved), it makes me think it's less likely that it's an actual abduction photo. I just think the kids put some tape on their mouths and acted like they were tied up. At least that's what I hope for anyway...that this was just a joke that got out of hand.

I do think it's interesting (and something I overlooked before) that people claim to have seen the girl in the polaroid being lead around by adult men on a beach near where the photo was found.

Not say it is or isn't real....however just because they are neat and well groomed means nothing. Perps do who this will often want their victims like this as part of the abuse process, without getting graphic. It's not unheard of. It does not matter which way the hands are tired...perp personal preference for whatever activities they want. I do find it interesting about the people witnessing the girl being led....and then when the van left the picture of what appeared to be the girl was left behind. I wonder if those eyewitness reports were corroborated.

The only place I have ever read this was on the CharleyProject website. I'm not sure where these details originated from. They have never been mentioned elsewhere, so far as I know. My gut feeling is these events, if they even occurred, are unrelated to the photo.

I would hope so, anyway. But, since I believe the photo to be a joke/hoax, I would say that either the witnesses were mistaken to what they saw, or perhaps they did see the girl in the photo, but it was just the girl who was on the beach at the time. I did read in another forum that someone had a theory that the photo was a joke amongst siblings, and that since the photo was discovered sometime in June, in a resort/vacation town, that in all probability the children in the photo were there on vacation with their family. That would make sense as to why people claim to have seen the girl on the beach.

I don't mean to get fixated on minutia, but I think it's best to look at this from all angles.

Does it bother you at all that the photo was taken where it was - in the back of a windowless van?

I think DarkDante mentioned in another thread on the case that there was a stereotype that these windowless cargo vans were "child abductor" vans. It's a stereotype I remember hearing as a child as well.

I honestly didn't know that it was determined to be the back of a van. I thought it was taken on a bed. I've only seen small resolution photos of it, so that's probably why I thought it was a bed. But if it is indeed a windowless van, that would cause some concern. But then again I've read that law enforcement were able to determine that besides the book there was also a squirt gun, among other trivial things found in the photo. And, although Tara's family believes the girl in the photo is her, law enforcement apparently does not. After all of these years, and the publicity the photo has gotten, I find it strange that the two children were never positively identified (if they were the victims of abduction). I wouldn't say I'm 100% sold on this being a joke or a prank.

ETA: I may be wrong on this, but it has never been conclusively proven that the mustachioed man who was driving the white van (parked in the spot where the photo was found) was responsible for the photo being dropped, correct? Couldn't the guy just have pulled up and covered where the photo lay, and then when he pulled out, the woman just put 2 and 2 together and assumed it came from him?

Quoted from this article...

http://missing87975.yuku.com/topic/3392#.U5jW0iimXgJ

"Extensive analysis performed by experts from Arizona to Los Alamos National Laboratory indicated that the woman's hairline and ear were consistent with Tara's, the Doels said. They are sure a wispy mark on the woman's right calf is the scar Tara received in a car crash.

The photo was taken in the windowless back of a white Toyota cargo van manufactured in the late 1980s, they said.

And, they said, a phone number, some of its digits indecipherable, is scratched on the spine of the novel.

Because some numbers are missing, Patty Doel said more than 300 listings are possible. Of those, only 57 are valid numbers, she said.

None has led to Tara.

In August 1989, the FBI concluded it was unable to say for sure that the people in the photo were Tara and Henley.

Patty Doel, whose disdain for the FBI is as obvious as the cigarettes she chain smokes, said an agent told her the woman's legs were shaved, thus she could not be a kidnapping victim."

IIRC, the Unsolved Mysteries broadcast indicated that the woman who found the photo pulled up to the convenience store and parked next to a white, windowless van. She went inside the store. When she came back out the van was gone and the photo was laying on the ground in the parking space where the van had been parked previously. To the best of my knowledge, no one reported seeing the driver.

Below is the highest quality copy of the photo I have been able to find. I even used Google Image Search feature and this is the best it can do...

Apologies in advance, but I think this is necessary to further the discussion.

One thing I've never noticed before about the photograph is that the young woman appears to be wearing a garment resembling a tennis skirt. If you study the fabric on the underside of her legs closely, the fabric appears to be pleated. It could be an optical illusion, but it is interesting in light of the fact that Tara's next appointment was a tennis game. Some sources do state she left her tennis clothes behind, however.

What do you guys think of the Polaroid?

I should say I'm a huge believer in Occam's Razor, and using plausible deductions and inferences to lead to the most likely explanation. I like trying to "profile" who the most likely culprit is. I think that applying these axioms is a good way of disentangling some of the more "out there" theories, which UM certainly gave us a dose of....

That being said, I'm having a hard time figuring the angle on this one...

In terms of explaining the Polaroid, lets examine the possibilities...

First, I think it's necessary to point out that the photo was found face up in the parking lot of a gas station in Port St. Joe, Florida. Considering the nature of the photo, to me, this indicates that the person who "dropped" it...

A. wanted it to be found.
B. was going for "shock value" - really, two young kids bound with tape on their mouths. Its pretty "out there"...it reminds me of a case recently where a photo of a dead and mutilated woman was found at a gas station. Upon further investigation, it turned out it was a photo from Afghanistan and depicted a war atrocity.

That being said, there are a few directions to go with the Polaroid from 1989...

1. A criminal mastermind who gets his (women rarely commit these crimes) kicks abducting children and left behind a photo to taunt authorities.

Unlikely. Most stranger abductions of children are for sexual purposes. The perp is usually an adult male, and the children are typically dead and disposed within 48 hours. In addition, most pedophiles have a sex and age preference. Yet, the Polaroid depicts a girl and a boy. Age is up for grabs, but suffice to say there is a pretty significant age gap between the two...kinda unique for a pedophile. Two sexes..different ages...
Not to mention the people who commit these types of crimes are usually solitary and act alone, and typically don't advertise their crimes in this fashion...the whole thing seems highly unlikely to me.

2. The photographer is a parent or guardian of these children, has sexually abused them and the photo was taken either for self gratification, or for resale.

Unlikely. While the scenario is plausible, these types of offenders typically don't advertise their crimes in public (i.e., photos left face up in a gas station). Also, any buyer of the photos is unlikely to leave them in a similar state.

3. Human trafficking, The photo is a remnant of that.

Unlikely. Organized crime is involved here. They don't advertise either.

Ultimate conclusion, - the photo is a hoax perpetuated by kids, and they have feared to come forward over the years due to the publicity generated by the Polaroid.

Thoughts?
I was always under the impression that the 2 kids in the photo were abducted and that they were crimes of opportunity, which would explain the differences in gender and age. A good portion of child abductions are crimes of opportunity, and that's what I think this is. Since kids spent the majority of time in school or with family and friends, some perps may snatch one when the opportunity arises and they see one alone.

And it is on that note, the odds of the girl being Tara Calico increase: she disappeared biking, for all intents and purposes, out in the middle of nowhere. She was alone. The perp or perps happened upon her, there were no witnesses around, and snatched her.

And it is on *that* note that the odds of it being Michael Henley increase somewhat. While I still personally don't think the photo looks like him (though he may have gotten a haircut), he did disappear from the same state as Tara -- New Mexico. So that makes me think someone was abducting children in New Mexico around 1989. I don't think it's impossible Henley was abducted and later returned to that site. The photo was found in FL, but we have no idea where it was taken.

Personally, I don't think the boy looks like Antreas Cantrell or David Michael Borer either.
