Tara Ord-Sidarovich, 19, went missing and was later found dead in a shallow grave in Punta Gorda, Florida. Dateline NBC's Keith Morrison will take a look at the case. Tara disappeared from her rural home 16 years ago. Police always had two men on their radar: David McMannis and Phillip Barr, two septic tank workers who were charged and convicted in the teen's death. Tara's sister, Veronica Ord, will tell Dateline NBC what she found when she arrived home from school to discover her sister was missing.
Tara Ord-Sidarovich was just 19-years-old when she disappeared from her Westwood Drive home. Her sister and brother, Veronica and Paul Ord, were surprised to see that she was not there after they stepped off the school bus. Tara's car was sitting in the driveway and her lipstick was still at the house, according to the Herald Tribune.
When Tara failed to show up at home, her worried mother notified police. Tara, who was just one month away from her birthday, told co-workers at the Golden Isle Jewelry store that she was headed to pick up her paycheck. She never showed up. For weeks and months, there was no movement in the case.
