There was an article in the paper I remember
reading about a boy she was dating/talking to
that was in high school.

Something about her walking home from school
and this boy picked her up....I think.
It's been so many yrs ago.

Was he questioned and cleared in her disappearance?

I guess I watch too much TV and need to realize that in the real world here in Oak Hill there are no investigations, forensic science and so on that actually can give a person much needed JUSTICE!

It has been told to folks I know by the local real estate broker named Tom Koontz that his homosexual ex-lover John Davis confessed to him that he killed Theresa all those years ago.
coincidently it was John Davis who discovered her decomposed body in loop creek several months later.

I do not know if this is true but it is plausible and should be investigated if it has not been already.
I have nothing personal against either of the above named individuals or homosexuals in general but I would like to see justice served on a killer.

Hi - I recently learned of this involving your friend. I am so sorry. I tried to click on the article and research more, but I see these comments are from years ago.

Any other information?

A final thought today on the comments. PLEASE if you have information contact the police. Facts or rumors could be the break this case needs. You could be holding the final answer to justice for Theresa and her family. Someone out there knows something. I have never expected the killer to come forward. I do think someone close to him knows. PLEASE I'm begging you to contact the investigating officers in this case. This could have been anyones child. I have children of my own now. Seven of them to be exact. Help protect others from this monster. If you have information and you don't come forward, you are guilty of everything this monster does now. You could have stopped him. You will never rest easy to carry such a heavy load. If this monster kills again, you will be just as accountable to us for having done nothing to stop him. Justice is swift for child killers when they are caught, can you help bring in to justice? PLEASE come forward.

This is so tragic... all these years and no justice. This needs to be looked into. The advanced tests they have now could bring peace to a family. Justice needs to be served. I remember hearing of this years ago, but I never knew a person was still out there roaming free.
