Great Deceptions

Updated: Oct 1


On Valentines Day 2007, a man walked into Macomb County Sherrifs office to report his wife missing. He hadn’t seen or heard from her for 5 days. She hadn’t turned up for work in Puerto Rico and no one knew where she was. On the night she disappeared the couple had argued and his wife left in a black sedan.


It was snowing heavily in Michigan; the wind was blowing at speeds of 30mph and Tara Grant was nowhere to be found.
