ALBANY, GA (WALB) - It's been more than three years since Ocilla school teacher Tara Grinstead vanished. Theories about what happened to her abound. And now, a man has posted a video on the Internet claiming responsibility for her disappearance.
In the video, he claimed to be a serial killer; even though he's since said it was a just a game, the GBI is still checking him out.
His face is blurred, his voice distorted, yet his message is clear. "If you want to play the game you'll find everything you want to find. All the clues will be right there you just have to play the game."
"Catchmekiller", as the man in this video calls himself, wants to play a game, giving clues that he says will lead to the bodies of the 16 people he claims to have murdered.
"In the middle of the second wet spot, you'll find your second clue," he said.
"It was just a horrible, horrible thing for him to do and the way that he did it, just so graphic in his details," said Anita Gattis, Tara Grinstead's big sister.
She says "catchmekiller" makes her sick, but some of his clues also intrigue her... like one involving a ring. "He did have some interesting details to me, because there is a ring missing of Tara's and that's not something, I don't think, was public knowledge."
So is "catchmekiller" responsible for Tara Grinstead's disappearance? When asked, "Do you think he killed Tara?" Gattis replied, "No I don't."
Rather, Gattis believes Tara died at the hands of someone she knew. "I don't think he had anything to do with this, but this is someone's family that this guy's screwing around with. This is not just some obscure game as he's wanting to call it."
And the search for Tara isn't over. Gattis says she won't stop looking until she finds Tara. She said, "I don't know that there's ever going to be closure because of the horrendous act that's happened, but we want answers and we definitely need accountability for someone that's done this. We definitely want her found and we want to know who did it and what happened."
And even though she doesn't believe "catchmekiller" is responsible for her sister's death, she wants him held accountable for his actions too, and his game, brought to an end.
After a report of the Catchmekiller aired in Orlando, the man posting videos called that TV station and told them it was a murder mystery clue game and that he's never killed anyone.
Even though the man in the video said he did nothing wrong, law enforcement agencies in Georgia and Florida are still investigating to make sure. They want to know if Catchmekiller is a psychopath or if he's just got a twisted sense of humor.
