I hope that piece of trash Tara pays for what she has done too! In my eyes (and maybe God's eyes) she is just as guilty as Coleman.

A couple of quick questions to clarify your position.
1. What has she done that she needs to pay for?
2. What is she guilty of?
I guess that is one question, with two different ways of asking it.

To answer your first stupid question...Carrying on an affair with her BEST friends' creepy husband, and helping with the cause of her murder...she must have been doing "tricks" for him to have to kill his wife and two beautiful boys, who "thnak God" looked just like her...to answer your second stupid question...she is an accomplice that enticed him, the Slug, to murder, or get rid of them anyway possible...he has destroyed so many people, in his coward selfish act...the family of Sherry, should go after the two of these Slimebags, and to hear that she, the whore is serving cocktails at a racetrack, with a big fat smile on her face like NOTHING has happened or she is disconnected from it all...well, bullshit, she is just as GUILTY as he..NO REMORSE, or anything for her friend...LOWLIFE, the two of them...next question, JON??????????
Tara, you are a real piece of crap..lower than the low..couldn't you get him to just run off with you, which would be bad enough, scumming around with your friends husband and father of two boys..what the hell is wrong with you...you couldn't get someone else..you're a piece of crap for sure, and I hope you NEVER sleep at night..and I hope he ROTS, and gets what he deserves in PRISON...from the boys....TARA,PLEASE READ THIS!!!!

I think TARA LINTZ is scum. But I don't get the impression she help planned any murders and likely she will never go to jail. It has been reported that she turned over the email Chris sent her the day of the murders. She's washing her hands of him it appears. HOWEVER, here's how she should pay: shame, guilt, remorse FOREVER to carry forward in her life. If ya'll read Post-Dispatch in St Louis who is very close to the investigation, they reported that Tara was keeping in contact with Sherri and KNEW she was being deceiptful and sleeping with her friend's husband behind her back. Here are the facts to prove that. She sent him a xmas card to a PO Box that she knew Sherri didn't have knowledge of. She was receiving calls from him from a prepaid cell phone -- not his home phone or regular phone. ALL signs of a man who has NOT told his wife of any divorce. These are textbook telltale signs of a man who is cheating on his spouse and Tara ignored the red flags for her own selfish purposes. Since she was one of Sheri's MySpace friends she could OBVIOUSLY....OBVIOUSLY see that Sheri was still posting photos of her family online as if she's the very happy wife & mother. She was still posting family xmas photos to her MySpace account as if she had no idea any divorce was ever happening let alone an affair. So no matter what ...Tara Lintz KNEW she was having an affair with a man whose wife knew nothing about any divorce. And for THAT ALONE she is scum for being so cowardly and deceitful and SELFISH to those poor little children. Did she think her actions would hurt his kids knowing she was taking their father away??? NO! She should pay with a guilty conscience for the rest of her life. Does anyone realize that Tara Lintz, as of this month was STILL living with her ex-husband in a condo they both bought after their divorce only a year ago??? Anyone read that? That's nuts! What a freeloading whack job.

Former Fl, I agree with you..and I hope Tara, NEVER knows happiness in her life again...to cheat with someone's husband/father, is the lowest of all..she may not have had a hand in the murders, but her doing whatever for him, caused their deaths...truly how I feel...anyone that knows her, STAY AWAY..she's a heartless FOOL...

I think if she had an "IDEA" of something happening to her, or her children, she would have gotten out of there, or got help, or SOMETHING...NO ONE KNEW ANYTHING WAS WRONG..SHE DIDN'T EITHER..EXCEPT HIM, THE SCUM, AND MAYBE THE MISTRESS..BOTH GUILTY, HIM FOR MURDER OF THREE, AND HER FOR CONTRIBUTING TO HIM WANTING THEM OUT OF HIS LIFE...THE END.

So if I understand you, Shari who had more contact with CC leading up to her murder didn't have any idea it what was about to happen. Tara, on the other hand, had to have known everything and encouraged him to do it, even though this is in direct conflict with what the investigators have said.
Your logic is just impeccable (sarcasm intended in case you didn't get that). People on here are trying and convicting Tara on information that is coming from completely unreliable sources, other posters or their own minds. People need to step back and look at the facts as presented by the people who are closest to this, the investigators. If they did they would not be accusing Tara of contributing to the murder.
Yes tara should be ashamed of her relationship with CC. He probably used it in his own mind as justification for committing this heinous crime but that does not put any of the responsibility for the deaths on Tara's shoulders.

To use your own sarcasm against you.. your counter-logic is equally unintuitive. it's obvious Sherri (who as you pointed out had the most "contact" with CC) had no idea what was going to happen to her or she wouldn't have stayed in the house with him. duh. But that does not in any way prove that because Tara lived in a different state and in a different home that she 1) had the least amount of contact with CC and 2) had no idea this could happen. I'm not saying she did, I'm only saying your argument doesn't support that she didn't. When in fact she likely had the *most* contact with CC via emails at work/home, texts & conversations over the phone. I've had several friend who lived with husbands who barely spoke 3 words to them when they were home, only to find out they had some lover on the side who they spilled their guts to on a regular basis instead.

And with regard to "that does not put any responsibility on Tara" maybe not in a court of law criminally, but psychologically it possibly had almoste *everything* to do with it. If there were no Tara (or someone like Tara) there was no reason for CC to stray from the home. Men don't just walk out the door from a family to go live alone in seclusion. Reports show that 99.9% of the time they do so because they already have someone (like Tara) to go to. If Tara had said "NO" and kept her thongs on, then she wouldn't have been involved in all this, but she is. There is ABSOLUTELY responsibility there of some kind she should bear in all of this and we as a society need to reinforce that or else everyone can just run around like idiots doing what ever the heck they want no matter who it hurts and there will be zero accountability for it. When we start protecting people like CC and Tara, we start losing our own ability to reinforce responsible behavior in people. Everyone deserves the right not to be hurt just as much you think Tara deserves the right to be left alone with zero responsibility. Sherri and her 2 sons deserved the right to not have their lives torn apart by Tara and CC and I uphold that right over all others. What do you stand for?

Unless it was taken off the books, there's some kind of law that a spouse can sue a "3rd party" for having an affair in Illinois.
Still HARD to believe he didn't confide in her. Kept ALL this to himself?? He was fishy from secone one and so is she.

I never said Tara didn't know what was going on. I don't know what Tara knew or didn't know. What I said was that the evidence we have to go on says that Tara didn't know. The police say that one person was responsible, Cris Coleman.
I also didn't say that Tara had no responsibity for the relationship, she does. I said that the evidence we have to go on says Tara has no responsibility for the murders.
My problem with many of the people who post here is with no supporting evidence they are saying that Tara is just as guilty of the murders as CC, that she encouraged him to commit the murders, or that she knew about the murders and didn't do anything to stop him.
As I have said before, posters need to step back and look at the released evidence before spouting off about whether someone did something or not.

I do not disagree with your logic there. I cannot speak to other bloggers line of thought. I can only guess that when people say Tara is as responsible as the murderer himself, that while they do not mean criminally, possibly they mean that her affair with him encouraged him to do what he did, whether it was implicit or subconscious (ie, she gave him an ultimatum and he responded to her ultimatum in a twisted way she never expected).

True, people need to look at all the dynamic pieces, but all these posts are just evidence that this story has produced a heated passion in people. A vehement disdain on so many levels 1) Murder 2) Adultery 3) Deceit 4) Degredation of women (ie., working in strip clubs) and 5) Hypocracy (ie., hiding behind a bible) just to name a few...

Again, Former Fl, I agree with you and what you are saying....'Interested' should try to understand where we are coming from, which is that, MAYBE, TARA didn't have anything, or any knowledge of what the Scumbag was going to do, but she was Sheri's BEST Friend, even a good friend to Sheri's family...WHY DID SHE ALLOW HERSELF TO BE IN A SITUATION THAT WOULD DESTROY AND HURT ALOT OF LIVES..SHE ONLY CARED ABOUT 'HER', AND NOT A CARE ABOUT SHERI OR HER BOYS...SO, YES, SHE IS SOMEWHAT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE 'ELIMINATION OF SHERI AND GARRET AND GAVIN'...AGAIN, MAY SHE "NEVER", EVER HAVE A HAPPY DAY IN HER SELFISH LIFE AGAIN...WITH 'NO' SLEEP TO GO WITH IT...

I don't for a minute believe that Tara had anything to do with this triple murder. However, I do believe that she should have known better than to have an affair with a friend's husband. What kind of person does that? Not one who has any character or morals.

Totally agree with you that messing with a friend's husband (all the while KNOWING her friend had no knowledge of any pending divorce) is pure trash. You're right it DOES say a LOT about her character right there. So....given that right now she could be doing nothing but back-peddling and saving her own @ss by cooperating with the police...how can we know for sure she didn't conspire with CC?? I'm just throwing that out there for pure debate.

And- think of this. The email that CC sent Tara the morning of the murders simply said "I DIDN'T DO IT, I HAVE AN ALIBI". How did HE know that SHE would know what "IT" referred to? He obviously didn't mention the murders in his email, don't you think it's odd to send someone an email saying you have an alibi and you don't even preface it by what you're referring to? How would she have known what he was talking about in advance???

More conjecture, but is it so far off base to wonder if he had said something to Tara about how much better for them it would be if his former family were just out of the picture? Remember how Scott Peterson told Amber that his wife died a few months prior, when in fact she wasn't? Just thoughts to consider.

I'm not saying Tara had a part --I'm saying no one here knows for sure what she knew or didn't know and so we can as easily blame her as dismiss her. Know one has more info than anyone else to base either position on. She could be simply singing like a canary to eliminate suspicion toward herself.

We live in a world today that more and more people are straying outside of their marriage more than most people realize. It's a real shame, but it happens in every city at any given time. Temptation is everywhere. Yes, it happens even to best friends. It shouldn't happen but it does. These people want both sides of the fence and some will stop at nothing to have their selfish desires fulfilled. Some are so insecure they don't want people to blame them for the breakdown of a marriage. This is such a case. He can say, "they were murdered", my marriage was fine until this happened. This lets him walk away feeling so good about himself. In due time his conscience will eat him alive, if he has one, some don't. For some cheating is a way of life that they crave to make them feel wanted because he feels unwanted. They deem it exciting that someone could want them. After the excitment wears off they go on to the next one for that same thrill. The sad reality of all this is he sucked Tara up in his web of deceit. She possibly felt the same way, someone wanted her also. Once an affair begins it is the most difficult thing to end. It's like a drug, the sneaking around, thinking up lies, the meeting, and oh yes, the sex. It's like a spy movie where people meet in the shadows for excitment. In the end IT NEVER works out. That is all their is to this type of relationship. They almost never work out and they soon part. Lives are ruined, children destroyed, and all for what, 6 months of excitment. Not worth it, so if you think you might want to do it, go home and be thankful you have what you have. The grass is not green on the other side, it is flat dry and brown.
