Love Should Not Be Possessive
Love should be gentle and kind. It should not be jealous or possessive. For when it violates these rules, the results can be fatal. Just ask those who were close to Thomas Watson, 43, and his former girlfriend Tara Shermerhorn, 31. Tara is the Arizona woman who was apparently kidnapped from her home by her former boy friend, Thomas Watson. The couple were recently found in what is believed to be a murder- suicide in Watson's truck. Goodyear police spokesman Ralph McLaughlin told the press that Watson left a suicide note behind. According to McLaughlin, "We're 99 percent sure that it's them based on our descriptions and what not."
Watson and Shermerhorn broke up in December, but were still involved in some sort of business venture together. A missing-person report for Watson was sent out at 5 a.m. Thursday. Police apparently found a suicide note authored by Watson at the scene. Shermerhorn's car was still in her own driveway. Family had previously notified police that they were unable to locate her.
Police hinted that Watson may have had a history of violence toward women or some type of domestic violence but no details were provided. Watson has an ex-wife in South Dakota who ironically was also named Tara. She may be a wealth of knowledge concerning Watson's past conduct with women.
Legal Pubs thoughts and sympathy is extended to the families of both of the victims. And as always, all allegations are just speculation unless proven in a court of law.
