Case 198

Tami Reay

When Kmart employee Tami Reay failed to show up at work in Pierre, South Dakota on the morning of Wednesday, February 8 2006, her co-worker Brian Clark called the police to report her missing. Brian had reason to suspect that Tami might have fallen victim of foul play. He and Tami had been having an affair, and her husband had just found out. 

Tami’s husband Brad Reay was immediately put under the spotlight, but as the case progressed, more and more questions rose to the surface. Had a vengeful Brad killed his wife out of jealousy, or did her lover have something to hide?
