Does anyone know this woman Tara Lintz, that was the stripper who was involved with Chris Coleman of Columbia Ill who strangled his two little boys and wife. Apparently according to the media, Chris Coleman who is in jail now for first degree murder of his wife and two small children {he strangled them in thier beds while they slept, he is sick and evil} he was having an affair with tara lintz of florida somewhere in the brandon, largo, st pete or tampa area. She works at a strip bar in the tampa area and knew he was married at the time. she of course was not involved in the killings but Chris Coleman was having an affair with her. Its a very sad shameful story, three people are dead and this man was an ex-marine and worked as a security guard for joyce meyers ministries! wow! cant beleive it. If you want to read about it you can google in "Columbia ILL killings" or "chris coleman arrested for killing family" we are curious about the mistress through, does anyone know her personally? and why will she not come forward and cooperate? this is a savage crime!

I am also very curious to hear about this woman.
These are some things I have heard from our local news.(Columbia, IL is about 20 minutes from me).

1. A greeting card from Tara Lintz was found in Chris Coleman's glove box when they searched his car.

2. There is a rumor she had made wedding invites for her and Chris.??

I am curious to know if she knew he was still married or did he lie to her.
I have seen both of their pictures and Sheri Coleman was WAY more attractive than Tara.

Good Post! Not only did she know he was married she pretended to befriend the wife sherri!! they met thru the church and she started an affair with him full knowing he was married and had two little boys. Sherri did not know her husband and this woman were having an affair. The woman Tara Lintz works as a stripper in one of those ranky skanky germ infested strip joints here in Tampa, she tried to sugar coat it by telling reporters and cops she was "a hostess in a gentlemans club" translation; "stripper in a strip joint" and as we know some strippers are also prostitutes.

This is a sad sick story. This man Coleman entered an affair with the stripper then killed his lovely wife and two adorable little boys so he could be with the stripper. You heard right the stripper DID make out wedding invitations knowing he was still legally married? that makes no sense unless she knew he would soon NOT be married to Sheri due to divorce or death? also Coleman took his sheri's name off the deed and title of thier home, and he refused to spend the money on a decent burial he did not want a funeral for the family, because "too much money" they have filed a suit for the bodies. Its so sad and terrible. The Nancy Grace show has shown this case quite a bit and its shocking and unbelievable! People are really angry about this.

This man actually strangled his family in thier beds wear they lay sleeping because of some naked dancing hooker he met in a strip joint, its awful! How a man could strangle the life out of his own flesh and blood is beyond belief. This man must be some unhuman savage beast and his mistress needs to come out of hiding and help the cops, if for NO other reason those poor little boys killed in thier own little beds.

one more thing Annie you are so right about sheri being much more attractive than the stripper, I saw a picture of her she is unattractive, overweight, and looks used and weary and unhealthy, very sleazy looking and not pretty, sheri was gorgeous. Coleman is/was crazy, who kills over some scummy stripper?

I went to school with both Sheri and Tara. Gracie had most information incorrect in her post, and rambles on without knowing the facts that are out there. Sheri and Tara were in high school together, 1 year apart. I believe they knew each other through cheerleading, but they definitely were friends outside of school and knew each other's families. They have kept in touch over the years, so they were just old friends from high school, they maintained their friendship, though I am not sure how often they were in contact. It is known that Sheri had contacted Tara's mother in 2007 and on Mother's Day in 2008 via her mom's myspace page. Tara did formerly work at a "strip club", but she was a hostess and was never a stripper. Making the connection that she is a stripper is like saying because you were a waitress at a restaurant, you must have also been a chef, they are totally different jobs. I do not fault people for questioning the character of someone who would even work at a place like that, but please be accurate, she was NOT a stripper.

As for the relationship with CC, again, I don't know any specifics so it's only conjecture, but I can guarantee that she met CC through Sheri, she was Sheri's friend first and foremost. I have no idea when the affair happened, I'm sure those details will be released. Was CC telling her that a divorce was imminent? My guess is yes, especially if the wedding invites rumor is true. I do not believe that she had any knowledge of premeditation of the murders. Another error in Gracie's posts, she has been cooperative with police from Day 1! If the rumor is true that CC called her that morning, you can bet the police contacted her by that afternoon. She has not spoken to reporters, but that does not mean that she isn't cooperating with police. I suspect part of her silence is due to the fact that she will be a major witness for the prosecution. Remember Amber Frey, you didn't hear her story until after she testified.

Anyway, please try to be more accurate and stop spreading rumors here. As much as I think it's disgusting to have an affair with a married man, and even more disgusting that it is with your friend's husband, you have to remember that this stuff happens all the time. That's not to excuse it, but most of the time these affairs don't end in a gruesome act of murder. I think due the the extreme nature of this, Tara is being treated by some that she herself committed the murders. Affairs are ugly and harmful to all those involved, but I don't think it's fair to string her up with the same rope used for CC. The MCS blatantly said they believe one person was responsible, and with them being so tight-lipped, they would not release that without believing she was not involved. If it's proven otherwise, then go at her.
Thank you

She is still a POS TRAMP with no morals and knew VERY WELL what she was getting into. Her reputation will continue to be tarnished and her name will always be associated with Chris Coleman...

I think that this whole thing has most likely ruined her name and maybe her life. I also believe that she had no idea this would happen, no one knew how crazy Chris Coleman really was.

ok, we get it - she wasn't a stripper. Not hard to believe - i mean, she's only the size of a small buffalo...mooooo! Who beside Chris would want to see her with her clothes off?

And from credible posters here who knew them both, it's evident she did know he was married and WORSE than that, she was in regular contact with his wife and disguised herself as a "friend" -- yeah right, a friend who wants to steal her husband. She coveted what her friend had and she wanted it for herself. Despite what anyone thinks about the affair, the bottom line and ONLY fact is this: that was PURELY SELFISH on her part to insert herself in front of the lives of those two small boys. Did she once ever consider how messed up those kids would be knowing the woman that took their dad away was a good friend of their mother's??? How selfish for a woman to put herself in front of the well-being of children. PURE SELFISHNESS. She wanted it, she didn't care what it cost or how it hurt the children. Whether or not he would have just picked a different woman - she still CHOSE to make that conscious choice and she chose poorly and SELFISHLY. She deserves to take this shame with her for life. Sheri and her kids lost her life over this woman, the least this woman can do is bear the ACCOUNTABILITY of her actions. Tara Lintz, I hope you realize what your shelfishness has done to the lives of 3 human beings.

Former FL-
I don't disagree with you that choosing to have an affair with anyone, even worse, the husband of a friend, is absolutely disgusting, feel free to make judgments on that. I just wanted to make the point that this would be very common if it weren't for CC murdering his entire family. I have a family member who had an affair with her friend's husband, was found out, they divorced and she ended up marrying him. They have now been married for 40 years, have 3 children, 4 grandchildren and his children from his first marriage consider her a 2nd mom. The first wife and her now have a good relationship (despite the former affair) and get together often. Now, of course, I know this is not what normally happens in this situation, and I have only known them in my life post-affair, but I do not think it's fair for me to judge her (or him) so harshly for a mistake they made when they were younger. Do I condone it, no, but just keep it into perspective that this happens everyday and does not ruin a person's reputation for life, nor do people constantly call for them to be put behind bars.

Secondly, whether or not you find her attractive, I would not classify her in any way as a "buffalo". Yes, she has large breasts (natural, I believe, they we large in high school), but she is definitely a normal/thin sized person.

The Big Bloody: Coleman Told Girlfriend They'd Marry Next Year
By Chad Garrison in Follow That Story, The Big BloodyFriday, May. 29 2009 @ 12:56PM
Christopher Coleman
The Post-Dispatch is reporting that Christopher Coleman told his Florida girlfriend that they'd marry in 2010. The woman's name is Tara Lintz and went to high school in Largo, Florida with Coleman's wife, Sheri.

Last week Coleman was charged with murdering Sheri and the couple's two sons, Garett and Gavin, on May 5 in the family's Columbia, Illinois, home.

The daily recently obtained search warrants in the case that state that St. Petersburg police interviewed Lintz in the days following the murder and that she admitted that she and Coleman sent sexually explicit messages to each other via cell phones, e-mail and social networking sites. The two also spoke by phone the night of May 4 -- hours before the murders.

Per the Post-Dispatch:

In the emails, Christopher talks about his extramarital relationship with Lintz," according to an affidavit filed by a detective. "He also sent emails to Lintz about plans to marry her in January, 2010, and their upcoming trip this summer."

The documents further say that Coleman created a new email account after the murders, and used it to send the girlfriend a message.

"He discussed the interview he had with the investigators concerning the death of his family. He told her, he did not commit the murders and had an alibi," an affidavit states.

Like CC couldn't have divorced Sheri instead of killing her & the boys to make way for a new marriage. Makes sense why he had her name removed from the deed to the house in Nov. 08 - the same month he met up with Tara while working in FLA for JMM. He wanted the property so he could keep the asset in his new marriage. What an evil man, just pure evil.
