Laura Wallen, 31, of Olney, Maryland, was last heard from on Sept. 4. She was a beloved high school teacher who was four months pregnant. Suspicion immediately fell upon her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Tyler Tessier, 32, of Damascus Maryland.
With the agreement of Wallen’s family, Montgomery County Police invited Tessier to speak at a news conference about the case. They wanted to hear what Tessier had to say. Tessier gave a command performance, pleading for Wallen to return. He neglected to mention that he allegedly already killed her.
Wallen’s body was discovered in a shallow grave on Sept. 13. She had been shot in the back of the head.
Tessier, who was involved with other women and could not keep his story straight, has been arrested and charged with her murder.
From the time she disappeared, her family suspected her boyfriend. Now he’s charged with murder, on WashingtonPost.com.
