From the beginning-- Roanoke prosecutor Don Caldwell felt Tara Munsey would NOT turn up safe and sound.
Over the years-- Caldwell has been involved in two similar cases in the New River Valley.

Caldwell, who worked the case as a special prosecutor, would eventually win a murder conviction against John David Lafon.
But the other case Caldwell has worked on as a consultant has NOT been solved.
It's that of Andrea Walnes (Wall-Ness).... a Virginia Tech student who vanished while tubing at McCoy falls in 1991.
Her body was later discovered in the Jefferson National Forest.
At one point-- Lafon was named as a suspect but the case was never brought to trial because of a lack of physical evidence.
