Update Case Information

2/12/2000 This what I have heard so far. Tara was shot multiple times in the head. There will be a memorial service at the high school - Sunday at 3 p.m..The impression I got tonight was that the police feel lucky. Tara was found by accident, soon enough to provide good evidence. They believe the person knew the area, because she was taken down an obscure railroad access road. They seem to feel they have or will have enough evidence to start hunting..

2/5/2000 The only new item is that the FBI has joined the search.
The following information has been released from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office, concerning the case of 16-year-old Tara Munsey who disappeared on Tuesday, January 25, 2000 from Fairlawn, Virginia.
Detectives consider Tara’s disappearance suspicious. On 01/25/2000 around 7:00 PM, she finished work and walked outside the restaurant and has not been seen. Her car was found later in the parking lot, unlocked with a bag of food and her cap from her uniform on the driver's seat.
