Tammy was my best frind, TJ's, mother, she was beautiful years ago, she was loving, caring, and always did the best she could for TJ, and his step brother Braden, until she started with drugs, as i right this comment from juvi i can only help but worry about TJ. I last saw Tammy in the about year ago before i got locked up and i cant belive some-one would do such a thing to her. Ill miss you tammy, rest in peace

Why am I not seeing any recent developments in the investigation of Tammy's murder on Fox 4 news. Has anyone heard if a suspect has been found? I've heard rumors but there seems to be more speculation than fact. If Tammy was still married and hadn't gotten into the drug scene, if she still lived in Johnson County with her husband and children, still worked as one of the most talented hair stylists in the area, and was the quintessential soccer mom, would there be better coverage of her murder ? Has she been relegated to last week's news because of her recent problems? What does this say about the media? What does this say about the investigation?

maybe it was a mistaken id? killers could have thought she was the famous tammy cochran relalted to a publisher. just more music row hankie pankie. control of the arts has become important to the extreme the last few years not only the money but the politics. not known to many is another Olathe killer was close to one of these control freaks who wanted to shelve certain artists. Tammy Cochran is in no way controversial but maybe someone in that important family knows something they should not?

Tammy was my aunt..she always will be. I love her so much. she did not deserve this no matter what she did wrong in her life. People make mistakes and this should not of been the outcome. She left behind her loving family and her son Tj. I cant even imagine how he making it through all of this. I hope they find the person who did this. I love you aunt Tammy...

I no your still here with us i can feel it..you know its funny poppy and gma went to the store about a month ago and poppy waited in the car as usual (lol) and he said that he saw a women walking and he looked and he said it looked excatly like you and all he could do was stare and he said the women kept staring at him to and she looked back at him too and he said that was tammy i no it was and it was..! I no it was you aunt tammy..your still here with us and you always will be. And im really irratated with the way the news is just forgetting all about this if it was someone else famous or something they would have already found out who it was. Whether you did drugs or not i dont care it still shouldnt have happened you were so loving and you were the best aunt anyone could ask for. Im gonna try my hardest to find out who did this tammy we love you with all of our hearts..always and forever xoxo

Two murder victims from the area shared common relatives sort of. Kelsey Smith's aunt worked at Acuff Rose music publishing in Nashville until about 2003 when Sony took it over. Another Tammy Cochran who sings who looked a lot like Tammy who was killed in Olathe had an uncle who was a manager at Acuff Rose. Copuld there be some kind of blood feud going on?

Also interesting is that Edwin Hall had laid branches striped of leaves over Kelsey's body as if he was going to burn it. Tammy Cochran was burned. I think Hall was part of a larger group.

i don't know if your serious but good luck. I have reason to believe the murder is connected to the Kelsey Smith murder.
1. Kelsey had an aunt who had worked at Acuff Rose music publishers
2. another Tammy Cochran a country singer was related to the famous Hank Cochran.
3. It is well known that many mostly right wingers want to control all of entertainment and will do most anything to get their way. These right wingers fear an entertainer will use their fame to speak out against the intrestsn of the right. Dixie Chicked is the term for it.
4. Tammy Cochran was burned and Kelsey had sticks laid on her as if someone were going to burn her.
