And, now with physical evidence from the crime scene to guide them, investigators are moving ahead in the search for her killer. ((CHRISTIE NIXON/FRIEND: I THINK IT WAS SOMEBODY SHE KNEW BECAUSE SHE WOULD HAVE PUT UP A FIGHT IF SOMEBODY SHE DIDN'T KNOW WANTED TO TAKE HER.)) Tara Rose Munsey's funeral had plenty of personal touches.... like the roses carried by mourners.
