yes there IS EVIDENCE that Tara had a bruised and 'bloody' body - I've seen the ME Report and the photographs taken of the apartment. You are obviously friends with that scumbag Shawn.

Maria Sganga sent Harris County prosecutor Connie Spence a similar letter in January 2009. She said she never heard back from Holm or Spence.
Sganga's close friend Maha also got the impression that HPD wasn't taking the case seriously. When Maha was told of Sganga's death, she flashed on all the things she had attributed to crystal meth, and her sadness was compounded by a wave of guilt. That's the mind-set she was in, she told the Press, when she got a call from an HPD investigator who "was very rude, crass and he told me, 'Anyways, this is a drug murder situation. And usually when we do [a] drug murder situation like that, we just write it off as a drug case...If there's a murder involving drugs...it's obvious that it's because they were all on drugs..."
According to Maha, the officer believed that the presence of sex toys found on the bed — as opposed to a knife in the bathroom sink, shattered glass on the floor, a blood-smeared bathroom door and bloody clothing — was the real key to the case.
"He didn't care about it," Maha said. "He's like, 'Yeah, well, you should've seen all the sex toys and all that'....He told me, 'Did you see the size of the vibrator she had on her bed?'"
Maha wondered if this wasn't due, in some part, to the sway that Roberts seemed to have over some people; a conniving charm that, she said, never worked on her. After all, one of her first thoughts upon meeting Roberts was, "Oh my God, this guy's a master manipulator. He's a piece of shit."
The only person Sganga's family believed was in their corner was Jim Carroll, a researcher for private investigators, who had been handed a copy of Sganga's autopsy report in early 2009. The private investigator who gave him the report said the Sgangas couldn't afford his services, but he figured Carroll might find it interesting. And Carroll did. What jumped out at him was the conflicting statements over who pulled Sganga from the tub. To him, the HFD account was plain as day: Roberts didn't even bother to take his girlfriend out of the water and administer CPR. What kind of person does that?
That's when, Carroll said, he "decided to open up a can of worms that ended up getting the case reopened."
While Brazoria County reporters had been aware of Roberts for some time, Carroll reached out to Houston media, and Fox's Randy Wallace was the first journalist to put Roberts under a microscope.
Meanwhile, Roberts was cracking. Although he had managed to get the State Bar to drop the Harris County disbarment proceedings, he was not doing well in Brazoria County.
On March 7, 2009, four days after moving into Roberts's Manvel home, a recovering alcoholic named Steven Blake Blackshear died of a drug overdose.
Blackshear had met Roberts during one of the latter's failed rehab stints; he'd been kicked out of his home, and Roberts invited him to move in.
Although Adkisson told the Alvin Sun-Advertiser that "things looked suspicious," the death had been ruled accidental, and "he had no evidence of anything more sinister." However, Adkisson had been bothered by Linscomb's statement, in which she "contradicted herself and appeared to be on drugs."
Three weeks later, an Angleton police officer, responding to a call about a man passed out in a vehicle, found Roberts in a Walgreens parking lot, slumped over the wheel of a black Jeep Wrangler borrowed from a local dealership. The officer discovered that Roberts was in possession of Soma and OxyContin, although he had prescriptions for neither.
According to the officer's report, "Defendant was having trouble speaking; slurred speech. He was having trouble getting his words out. Defendant could not stand straight up; he swayed and could not walk normally."
Roberts was charged with public intoxication and possession of a dangerous drug.
Three days later, Brazoria County DA Jeri Yenne sent a letter to the State Bar of Texas.
"I am close to begging, pleading and imploring you...to address the situation with Shawn Roland Roberts for the safety of other human beings," she wrote. "He is not a competent lawyer at the present time and cannot perform his functions due to substance abuse. He should not be driving back and forth to any courthouse on the road due to substance abuse....There have been efforts to address this with rehabilitation. Now, however, it is [as] bad as it has ever been. I am asking you to prioritize this and expedite this situation for the safety of Shawn Roberts' clients, and society, or there will be a death which could have been prevented."
Six days later, Yenne ordered her prosecutors not to make any deals with any attorney they believed to be impaired, specifically naming Roberts. (Roberts was disbarred in May 2009 but successfully appealed the ruling and may resume practicing law — on an initial probationary basis — in January 2012.)
To Yenne, it didn't help matters at all that Roberts was trying to defend Linscomb, who was on her way to rehab, on an old DWI charge when he was found passed out at Walgreens. Yenne said she discussed this with Roberts's old friend Steve Gonzalez, who had taken over Linscomb's DWI case.

I agree with Amber. After reading the article then the comments and esp Roberts' inclusion of the actual interview it is clear the author slandered his name and took things out of context. It's his responsibility to confirm whether his sources are accurate and not to fill in the blanks with his own brand of fiction. Thats libel and slander which hurts him professionally personally and financially. This story makes him sound like a murderer and is a combo of a conspiracy theory nuts, lies, esp re actual evidence. I attended the trial and to think that Taras sister happens to walk in and find a bag full of evidence complete with blood and knives!! Really? But the police missed it? While Roberts mother was destroying evidence? Sick! She died of drowning and had coke in her system that kept her up 3 days and was supplied by her bother! She wasnt stabbed or beaten. She overdosed and drowned. Homicide had Roberts in the apt from beginning to end. He never left. He couldnt bc he was handcuffed and detectives combed every inch of that apartment before leaving. An implied conspiracy theory that Roberts influenced the detectives, had them destroy evidence they never had or left at the scene for the sister to find, had someone od while he was behind bars, Ridicilous!! Bless their ignorant hearts. Its a tragedy but the villian isnt Roberts, its the two drug dealers, her brother and the guy that testified against Roberts the same one with 16 felonies looking to please the state so he can make parole. He may have had addiction issues too but he wasnt the dealer and didnt force Tara to do any drugs. Did he snort the coke, pop the pills and somehow transfer all these substances to Tara? Obviously not, the jury found him not guilty. He is innocent yet the author distorts everything in an effort to try and make Roberts look guilty when he should have been a professional. Roberts gave him permission to get the transcripts. There was NO EVIDENCE that Tara had a bruised bloody broken body. That is such a lie. I hope he is fired and Roberts is awarded a lot of $ bc this article is a huge injustice. I should know, I was there. I was on the jury and no one thought Roberts was guilty, we were sad bc we felt like the state prosecuted the wrong guy (the atty) instead of the drug dealers..Malislow is a disgrace who clearly sensationalized an issue at an innocent mans expense all in an effort to try and make a name off someone far more gifted than himself.
Good thing he was found not guilty everyone knew they went after him bc he is a great lawyer and the families wanted a fall guy he should sue this publication
I am disgusted by the the BLIND JUSTICE/HPD/DA OFFICE and all those that are supposed to serve and protect us and this is a sample of the twisted and corrupted system we have yeah I will trust my life to HPD.....
Dear Mr. Criminal Defense Trial Attorney, (Shawn)
It disgusts me to even have to type your name. It makes me cringe. But I do have a few questions for you.
Do you have an answer for the fresh blood-stained clothing (Tara's camisole and your t-shirt) that was found hidden in Tara's bedroom and bloody bed sheets that your mother was washing later that day? Do you have an explaination for supposidly discovering her in the tub and not bothering to pull her out or administer CPR? Do you have an answer for fleeing the scene and taking all of Tara's valuables and credit cards with you? Do you have an answer for returning to her apartment with your drug buddy to rob everything else she owned? Do you have an answer for not contacting any of her family members to tell them she was deceased when you clearly had her cell phone in your posession with everyone's number? Do you have an answer for not attending her furneral service or sending flowers, a card....anything...when you claim to be such a smart man yet not savvy enough to look up her funeral date in the paper???
You degraded Tara to homicide detectives and people in the courtroom by claiming that the reason you were falling asleep while being interviewed by detectives was because you were tired from being up all night supposidly being "intimate" (I'll use a nicer term than you chose) with Tara. Everyone knew that you were impotent. Tara told me herself.
Do you remember telling a certain person (who shall remain nameless for her own protection against you) in a hotel room the night Tara passed when she asked about the scratch marks on your neck? Your response was -"That B*tch" will never speak to me that way again. I held her under the water until the bubbles came up". Do you remember that conversation, Shawn???
You know damn well what you did. You will burn in hell for what you have done to people's lives. Keep trying to tell yourself your innocent. If that's what keeps you goinig everyday, then so be it. But you are the lowest scum of the earth and will rot in hell one fine day.
Angel for Tara
p.s. Every word that comes out of your mouth is nothing but a lie and everyone knows it. So why would anyone believe you are telling the truth about anything in these posts, neverthess being responsible for Tara' death?
Show's what most of us in Houston have always known. If you want to commit crime in Harris county, get a law degree and pass the bar. They'll look the other way and drop charges. Been that way since at least the 60's.
Can we please keep these comments civil, and not just a shouting match between two or three individuals? That's not what this space is for.
Shawn you and Randy are going to die the way you both deserve...slow and hard. Dont quit your day job,oh thats right youre a BIG FUCKING LOOSER!!!!!!! ONE MORE THING WATCH YOUR FUCKING BACK!!!!!!!!!
NO there IS NOT and WAS NOT any such evidence. I can't help the fact that certain individuals cannot read or interpret a report, be it autopsy or other. The ME testified at the trial. No pics were introduced and there was testimony that Tara had NO blood coming from her head, there were no signs of struggle, nothing under her fingernails, and none, I repeat not a single shred of testimony or evidence that Tara had been struck, abused, nothing bc I never hit her no matter how many times she hit or scratched me(which she did several times) which was a first for me regarding relationships yet I never retaliated and to this day have never struck a woman with a fist or open hand. All I have ever done when attacked was to protect myself by leaving or restraining her from striking me. I challenge anyone I have ever dated or any of their friends that they may have confided in or had an opportunity to witness anything remotely re violence to come forward with any allegations of physical abuse or violence. Period. All this made up bullshit makes me sick. I have always said that men who abuse women are cowards and I have no friends that beat women. The implication that Tara was bruised or battered or bleeding is complete slander. They are lies, malicious outright devious misrepresentations, put forth for one reason. To attack my character and hurt me and my family. I have a daughter that is old enough to understand the implications, a profession that is damaged extremely by these false allegations, because the bigger the lie, the easier to believe. This whole article and subsequent pieces are veiled and implied lies constructed in such a way to make me look like an abuser, a violent person, and plants the seeds that I am a murderer, a scumbag, with amazing, almost supernatural powers to control the police, the DA's, that I collect guns and knives,( I do not own a single one) that somehow I had something to do with my mothers suicide, although my love and our bond was incredibly unique, that I somehow had a hand in my wife's death regardless of the fact that we never fought except for issues re her drug use ( I was the one who sent her to rehab). I was the only relationship she had where she was not physically abused and had no reason to wish her harm. I loved her as a life partner and NEVER laid a hand on her. No one can say otherwise. As for my supposed "roomate", after reading this slanderous bs, (he had only stayed at our house for 2 nights and was told he HAD to leave the next morning and go home to his daughters birthday or find another place to stay because he was adversely effecting Amanda with his drinking and had been kicked out of his own home for passing out naked in his yard and garage, respectively, in front of his 3 daughters. Obviously he needed help and was advised to check in rehab by his wife, friends, and by me. Yet Malislow implies that I had something to do with all their tragedies. He even suggests that "Jennie" was moved out of state for her safety, that somehow while incarcerated I posed a threat. Yet she consistently came to visit, wrote letters, and put $ on my commissary. She testified truthfully at the bond hearing that she had never seen me inject my wife or shoot up personally. She also testified that she never witnessed anyone injecting drugs at her home. Her testimony re my drug usage was that she "guessed" I was taking pills because "everyone was"..Why in the world would I want harm to come to any of the people Malislow implies and states that they all had one thing in common-me. Obviously law enforcement did thorough investigations considering how publicized it was that the Texas Rangers were involved, yet not a single person involved with the tragedies working for law enforcement has ever mentioned or found one thing vital to a supposed murderer-INTENT. Because you can't find what doesn't exist. And one thing is crystal clear. I loved all of them, wished ill will on none of them, and never acted in a violent manner towards anyone that Malislow and Tara's lying, drug supplying, thieving family mentioned. In conclusion, I want this trash removed from the internet, for Tara's mother, sister, friends, etc. to face up to reality. To admit trashing destroying my diplomas, law license, to stealing all my belongings out of storage and furniture from our apartment. That they threatened me and my mother. The fact her mother has used this situation to compensate for her guilt in not being around while we were dating, that for some sick reason she wants this media attention. But Sharon Russell aka Sharon Sganga, aka, Sharon Contino, aka cocktail waitress at certain clubs, IDK how many names she has used... sat though the entire trial, knows there was no testimony re physical abuse or altercation, is in denial re her beloved son Johnny Contino's contribution of cocaine to Tara behind my back, knows she almost died before of an overdose by abusing roofies or other benzos like xanax, battled depression, knows I had put almost $8,000 in Tara's account shortly before her passing, knows Tara and Maha broke in my storage, took a $5000 persian rug and a framed Ronnie Lott jersey, storing it at Jackson's (she felt guilty and confessed she had done it bc she was jealous and afraid i would leave her) that she was in my storage with my law desk, all my files, all my memorabilia, 2 persian rugs worth over $10,000, my leather couches, my coffee and end tables, my table and chairs, my computers, my flatscreen, my suits (over $60,000) worth, my other clothes, all my personal effects including my bible, all my photos, my framed Flag, framed Elway jersey, lifetime NACDL crystal, several other Waterford crystals given to me by my mother, all furniture from my law office, all my book keeping, client accounts, files, motions, 15 years worth of accumulated books and guides re the profession of law and many many crucial documents related to my practice. Further she knows that I was purposefully kept out of the loop re her funeral, that either she, Johnny, or Marie had,, or still have or destroyed or sold all the aforementioned belongings. I am tired of holding my tongue, trying to treat them with respect while lies and misrepresentations are constantly spewed from their mouths. I have tried to take the high road and look where its gotten me. Manufactured and bullshit charges being filed knowing there was no chance of a conviction but taking satisfaction in destroying my name, keeping me incarcerated with a no bond for almost six months while the case (over three years old then ) kept getting reset and reset. There is an old saying in the legal community. "You can beat the rap, but you cannot beat the ride". That is exactly what happened to me. Everything was front page news or on tv until I was found not guilty. Then there was no tv coverage, no chance to tell my side of the story, a newspaper article much smaller announcing the acquittal on page 2-3, and no requests for interviews afterwards. Then they find this pathetic journalist who buys into their delusions, or doesn't care and sees an opportunity for a sensationalized article, not giving a damn what the truth is, not using any diligence pursuing the truth, hardly uses any of the interview I granted and refused to listen to any other issues, consistently and with malice makes up a story replete with insidious insinuations, outright lies and misrepresentations, apologizes for several errors in the first paragraphs and prints a correction no one sees(while making even more errors during the supposed correction), I was born in 1969, not married, continues defamation in a recent blog trying to connect knives, blood, (which after reading results in people envisioning an apartment strewn with so much blood it was written to portay a war zone a crazed , bloodthirsty killer on a rampage), yet she died of drowning with hardly a blemish on her body, that the State lost evidence crucial to the case which never existed or had anything to do with the case or cases which the DA got forced into trying because of her running to the media, and after soundly being defeated in the manufactured and "novel and unusual" cases which were brought against me. Then she blames the DA, who actually did a good job prosecuting the case, despite the fact that had it not been for the circumstances would never have seen the inside of a courtroom and if it had should have been brought against the actual drug dealers in the case, her brother( former client) and the State's key witness also a former client, but no one ever asked me my version as it pertained to those two. Their records speak for themselves. Why they decided to focus all their energies on publicly and privately prosecuting me, using every possible opportunity to get her mug on TV, denouncing me when all she need have done is ask her son what happened in the days preceding and asking him if I in fact did run off some of his friends for being bad influences. But her most despicable acts, besides the threats, is the cleansing, looting of the storage not a day or 2 after her daughters death, the theft and destruction of my personal and private property which I will pursue charges now if I am able because I have, until this point in time, refused to engage and/or tell the truth because I know Tara wouldn't want her mom's assorted history and actions, or her brothers, or possibly her sisters actions to be revealed. However, I have reached my breaking point and can no longer sit idly by, exercising forgiveness and silence while I am lied about, have had to deal with a malicious reporter with no desire for the truth, only sensational allegations filling in the blanks with speculation, printing spoon fed morsels of dark lies and spinning them for the public, portraying me as a villain parlaying his malice into the 5th most popular, rather notorious, article of the year in our fair city. In conclusion, I want my personal property back, including my 2 laptops she is suing the city for, my platinum and diamond cross that Tara had along with my furniture, my money, my clothing, my Range Rover, my flat screens, my photos,my rugs, and everything my law office contained that her mother stole out of our storage. Further I want Mr. Malislow held accountable and this story withdrawn from the internet. While I can never recoup in money the damages caused by the author and his publication in printing a story so full of supposition, out right lies, malice, and personal, private, public, and professional harm, I will pursue it from this point forward. Should law enforcement care to hear the truth re what happened to Tara, and follow the information up with indictments and prosecution, I will testify truthfully against all of them, even though I know that's not what Tara would have wanted. However, if her family cannot act like she would have asked them to act had she had an opportunity to do so, like maybe she did after almost dying in the hospital from abuse of a certain drug her brother told me about years before I knew her, if her friend Maha can make statements on the record re me and her feelings while coming over all the time to partake with Tara, if no one interviewed can tell the truth that Tara was not withdrawn, but rather had people over almost daily and certainly all weekend every weekend, if her mom cannot be upfront re her one visit during "this time of terrible transformation", which of course was caused by me and only me, then I must set the record straight and do what she urged of me. Don't waste any time going forward while not forgetting I am a "badass", using my gifts to set the record straight once and for all.RIP Tara, you know the truth, and know the love given you by my mother, myself, my brother, my grandparents and the rest of my family. I wish you could have stayed around and experienced more of the love my family gave to you with out stretched arms, unconditional and without judgement of you or your family
No you didn't..bc they never existed. You think homicide would miss evidence like that when they combed the apt with a fine tooth comb & I was never allowed to leave? No. She drowned. She was not physically abused nor was there any evidence of abuse or fighting. All would be cleared up had these naysayers attended the trial and heard the testimony of the ME and investigating officers.
Oh how blind you are, perhaps he has scrambled your brains too. You better watch out if you are hanging around him. Its hard to defend him when you become one of his victims. One day your eyes will be opened after he gets his next victim....
I'll refer you to the reply posted by me several says ago. I am not going to dignify those ridiculous comments with a response. The physical evidence didn't lie, and doesn't lie. Period. If there had been any of the evidence that untrained, highly emotional, people claim there was, the homicide detectives that locked down the scene and stayed for several hours would have documented, photographed, and tagged the evidence. Obviously, the truth has no effect on people that already have their minds made up, as to what, I don't even think they know. I have offered numerous times to sit down with any of her friends and family and discuss this tragedy in the hopes that there may be closure, but denial is a powerful thing, and all these responses are irrational, and clearly a sympton of denial and the fact that they can not come to grips with reality. Tara was a wonderful person, but she had faults like all of us .Everyone close to the situation knows that I did not introduce Tara to drugs. I never claimed "helicopters" were following us, that's sad. Really. I did not take her to the doctor and make her get prescriptions for drugs she had already been taking. Nor did I force those medications down her throat. She had been hospitalized before bc of addiction to rohyphinol or" roofies", long before she met me. Again I forgive those that have wrongly and falsely slandered my name, intentionally mischaracterized the nature of our relationship and how I treated her; (would she have written a letter like the one published in the article if I did all the ridiculous things that have been alleged or stayed with me for so long)'? , and continue to hold on to these irrational thoughts bc they are in denial. And I ask for your forgiveness as well, however misguided or unwarranted your blame and actions have been. I wish you all peace, love, forgiveness, and healing. I know, God knows and Tara knows what happened (and I have no fear of my judgement day with God) Further I know Tara would not approve of all these attacks. I have said all I am going to say unless someone would like to visit in person. My remarks made several days ago which include the entire interview cover it all. Sincerely, SRR
Where are the comments I made with the entire interview? THE COMMENTS ON DISQIS UNDER TXSHERIFF97????? Have those been deleted? I've wanted people to know the truth. So can you post it first. Put it back up if u took it off? And yes u do owe an apology, to me. Skipping bail? Give me a break. That's when u don't show up for court and your bondsmen drops the bond and its a felony failure to appear. That never happened. I have explained this over and over. There was a warrant issued bc someone "said" they saw me using drugs. Normally there would be a hearing before a bond was revoked on hearsay. there wasn't a hearing till after I was in custody, and when I offered to take a drug test, was denied the opportunity, then held with no bond before being found innocent.
absolutely Craig I just wanted to get an important point to the people who needed to think about this situation and also this man has absolutely altered 3 families lives that he doesnt even know,thats how devestating drug addiction is and by the grace of God he will be forgiven but by no man he can be forgiven @ this time.
sorry Craig, just venting a little on some one i really dislike.. sorry about the language.. i will watch my month...
As for u, I pray you find Jesus and I hope u learn how to forgive. If u already have, then I would hope you wouldn't make threats or wish pain and suffering on anyone. Post your number and I'll be happy to make contact with you. But to tell someone to watch your back, and wish them death isn't very Christ like. I forgive you and ask for your forgiveness as well, however misplaced your blame may be. Really what exactly is it that u think I did to Tara. And Randy? What's he got to do with it? Nonetheless I'm here and not going anywhere. Take care and God bless. Shawn R.
Shawn not only did you destroyed so many lives with your lies and deceptions but you took a life that was incredible and turned her into an addict someone with insecurities and you played and manipulated to your convenience, tara was an incredible person, I met her when we where very young and we turned out to be incredible friends for more than 20 years. The Tara I saw in that casket wasn't the Tara I knew, you took that away. see I knew her better than anyone and I knew the good and the bad I knew her fears and what made her happy, but you took all that away from her family and friends her real friends not the people she was hanging out with at the end. See Shawn G-D has this perverse and sinister plan for you and I will be there to spit in your grave. May you rot in hell........
as i sit here, i was thinking.. u said Tara was washing out her dye to her hair.. why was she taking a BATH?? why would she take a BATH (not a shower) and wash out her hair.. wouldn't that make the bath water brown.. why would u take a bath in dye water??? (u wouldn't u would take a shower) so what that lie to cover up??? & u cant drown in the shower!!! so what really happen???
Really Shawn? Did you not forget what you wrote in your journal when you were in Rehab? About how you would get women high to get them to do what you want? Your scribble is hard to read but nonetheless, readable. Pretty interesting stuff you wrote....
More lies. Funny how you talk about denial. Cleary, you are the ONLY one in denial, Shawn. As for the cops and them not securing the scene, evidence, etc... Just like there are crooked lawyers....there are also crooked cops who cover for them.
hey I agree he needs to put it back up!!!!! Everyone needs to be given a chance i hope you stay clean I understand .....Shawn I been there done that !!!!! (Jenny) called me shes doing much better and I want you to know she did not want to testify against you I believe some certain rangers told her she would get her kids back ....however they lied and she went down quick in guilt and the loss of her kids she ia an alcoholic and addict and by the grace of God she survived she is one of my dearest friends. You met me years ago off hwy 6 and satsuma you know where.... well mabey we will see each other again I hope its on good terms and we are sober GOD BLESS
meet us @ wilcrest babtist church march 6th sunday we can pray ....we can really get all this off our hearts God Bless...hope u respond. The morning service starts around 9:30
Shawn- how dare you play the Christ card. When was the last time you attended Church? If I recall, per my sister, she tried to get you to go to Church many times. In fact, she pleaded with you to do the right thing...for your sake and hers. Instead, you lead her down the devil's path of deep, dark, destruction. You will face God one day if you're lucky and all of this nonsense you speak will mean nothing. My sister and 3 other people are desceased and you are using this article to promote your law practice?!?! You are truly sicker than I initially thought. The only person you need to pray for is yourself. Oh, and your attorney, since cleary he's just as twisted as you are. Do not speak my beautiful sister's name ever again. You don't deserve to ever have even know her. Maria.
Yes you are here and thats a fact,however God is on your side so you have another chance.Dont hurt yourself or influence anymore young distraught women into becoming or staying into a life of drugs and pain so by the grace of God may he help you through this time and give you the strength to really change because as humans we tend to disbelieve in each other so God really has his work cut out for him in you. Randy,well lets just say he already is suffering so why dont you go visit him and have a prayer meeting being the reborn christian that you are.
Why don't you and i meet so we can have a man to man discussion? Specifically in regards to what i need to be worried about, and why you would think you have "my journal" interesting stuff. What kind of a person would read another persons journal? How would you come into contact with something that belongs to me? Who are you people? I've seen your posts on the Chronicle as well. In any event if I have in any way harmed you, or offended you, I apologize. I understand emotions can run high. But i forgive you as well, Sincerely,
BTW this is a good time to inject (and I use that term loosely here) a statement from Outlaw Josey Wales.."dont piss down my back and tell me its rainin".
SR, did you not see the the autopsy photos? I did, and the injuries she sustained on her face and back of her head were not from falling down 5 times. I also challenge anyone to go to the Harris County ME's office and get one for yourself. They are under 5 dollars. The photos can be bought as well. There wasn't enough "drugs" in her system to kill a dog. Some of the drugs found in her system were from the emergency room treatment. You can also obtain a copy of the Ambulance report from the HFD. "A86" (Ambulance 86) arrived and found a submerged female in the bathtub". Also it was noted that SR shirt was bone dry when HFD and HPD arrived. All this is available on public record and you can obtain it. As for transcripts of the trial, that was all expunged at Shawn's request (attorney) mainly because they didnt want anyone seeing it. However, some documentation was obtained and copied legally before the case was expunged. Legally SR is not suppose to have a gun because of his mental instability and that is an issue being worked on. There are several people lets just say that are in the "legal field" that are not going to let this case fade away and be forgotten. These people are doing this on their own time, not getting paid.
go blow smoke up some one else ass.. i dont believe u.. i knew Tara!! & her faults.. i know what happen, as well as u do.. so stop with the lies already.. i dont believe u or ever will.. I AM TARA FRIEND, NOT YOURS...
Pammie, If i could bring her back i would. I'm sorry for your loss. I'm sorry for everyone's loss. I have written several times re: forgiveness. I forgive you for the comments re my mother. Nothing was further from the truth. My mom was the least judgmental person you could have ever met. In fact her and Tara were close. Tara spent Christmas with my family. My mom and her exchanged several gifts. She actually erased almost a whole roll of film with her and my family members bc "she didn't like the way she looked in the pics." While tweaking. I was upset about that, but it didn't matter bc the police got that camera anyway. They spoke often, as much as my mom and I did in fact. The day she passed she had been talking to my mother for at least an hour. Phone records show that. The other thing i would like to say is that I did not like Tara on uppers. The only numbers I may have ever erased were those of her meth dealers. So if your sisters number got erased or yours (I guess accidentally bc I thought u were one and the same u will know why). For the record Tara didn't have meth in her system when she died. I had done everything possible to keep her off that stuff bc it was really bad for her. She did have cocaine. I wondered why she hadn't slept for several days and found out when I received the autopsy, one of the reasons I made the comment "I had no idea she had so many drugs in her system", the person who provided that substance knows who he is, but will have to deal with that. Hopefully he isn't a hypocrite. Also there will be a lawsuit filed for the lies in this article. Specifically as it pertains to Craig's erroneous report of the autopsy. There was never a "bruised and battered face, or gash in the back of her head with blood flowing out. Severe mistake on his part. I know you have done interviews Craig, but have you ever done a deposition? As for separating her from her friends? Ridiculous. There were people over all the time. Almost everyday of the week. Your "sister" was over quite a few times. Her brother was practically living with us. I am not now and have never been a controlling or jealous boyfriend or husband. BTW I like Johnny, Always did. I'm sorry that the "great miscommunication" ever happened. As I told Maria.I truly wish for you to let go of the hate, to practice the art of forgiveness, even if the hate or blame is misplaced, I really hope that you can begin to heal. Truly. Sincerely,Shawn
Thank you. I would like to meet up with you,mabey some time soon. We could do lunch,however I dont want all these people having my info, so I will go buy a track phone and leave a number tommorow. God Bless you too.

I WANT TARA BACK.. CAN U BRING HER BACK.. U TOOK HER AWAY.. NOW BRING HER BACK... WELL I GUESS UR BELONG R GONE LIKE SHE IS.. AND HER STUFF TOO..
Maria, I'm sorry we never got to talk. I truly believe if there had not been the misunderstanding between my mom and you all, things would have turned out a lot differently. However, I would like to know who tore up my diplomas, where all my belongings are from my law office that your mom took out of storage, and who has my furniture, couch, coffee table, rugs, memorabilia, suits, computer, printer, etc. Bc I didnt have Taras tv, mine was gone too, or her laptop. But i want my belongings back, the table, the chairs, all of it. Who has it Maria? Do you, your mom, Johnny? Did you tear up my law license, my diplomas? Please, tell me. I swear on my moms grave I never got any of it. I talked to Jackson, Tara and Maha had taken my rug and signed Ronnie Lott jersey over there. So please tell me where it is and how I can get it all back. I had a lot of important files, my desk, my whole law office that your mom went and took the day after Tara died. She tried to get in my other storage as well but Tara's name wasn't on the account.
It is not normal for me to leave postings but for this one story I cannot seem to refrain, 1) because it involves someone I knew (Shawn) and 2) because all the positings I read are so one sided with virtually no one holding any other party involved, even the slightest bit responsible for the outcome. It appears a jury agreed.
Shawn, please know that you do have supporters out there who belive in the person you once were and the person you can still become. I wish you well in your future endeavors and hope that someday soon you too will be living the good life, surrounded by family and good friends.
My condolences to you on the death of your Mother.

SR, It was a page that was sent to me anon, allegedly in your writing from your journal, of course I'm not tacky enough to post it everywhere. You've "offended" me and many others not related to Tara or any of your other victims by your manipulation of the law. You said the evidence speaks for itself. Like the OJ trial, it wasn't a brilliant defense that won your case, it was a shoddy presentation from the DA. Be glad it wasn't Kelly Siegler who wasn't the ADA. You can pray and talk about God and all that, but HE and you know the truth, along with those that are dead. A true christian would admit to what they have done.
YEAH LETS HOPE SO!!! he is sooo missed up right now, becuz he has got me mixed up with some other girl, i never danced were he Treasures.. and i never would have gotten Tara meth... OKKKKKKKKKKKKKK SHAWN pull ur head out of your ass for two min.. & think about what u r saying b4 u say it... JUST SAYING MORON!!!
