Missing Teacher Shot in the Head

Missing Teacher Shot in the Head”

Montgomery County police Chief Tom Manager said Wallen was shot in the back of the head and Tessier buried her in a shallow grave on property that belonged to one of his friends.

Tyler Tessier, 32, was arrested on Wednesday and charged with the murder of 31-year-old Lauren Wallen, a high school teacher at Wilde Lake High School in Columbia, Maryland.

Her boyfriend, Tyler Tessier, was charged with her death the same day. At a bond review Thursday afternoon, the judge deemed him a danger to the community and denied bond.

Members of the community handed out and posted paper fliers around Howard and Montgomery counties over the weekend showing the blond-haired, blue-eyed teacher with the words "MISSING" in red. "But we did it because... we were pretty sure it was Tyler but we didn't know where she was, and you can't put someone away on a missing person". She had been "super-excited" about the new school year, her father, Mark Wallen, told reporters Wednesday.

"Tessier stated that he had disposed of Wallen's license plate, iPhone and driver's license in order to "buy her time" to figure out what she was going to do about [redacted] being the baby's father", the warrant said. Detectives obtained a search warrant for the property, Manger said, and officers with cadaver dogs found the shallow grave.

Tessier made several visits to the area where Wallen's body was found, CBS affiliate WUSA-TV reports. "Their relationship was the only thing that Laura and her family ever fought about", Mark Wallen said. "Please keep Ms. Wallen's family in your thoughts". Police added that Tessier gave inconsistent stories about his interactions with Wallen before she'd gone missing. The last-known transaction in Wallen's financial accounts was a debit card purchase at a Safeway grocery store near her home in Olney Sept. 2 between 8:30 and 9:30 p.m. local time.

Investigators suspect she was killed the next day, according to Manger. Tessier was engaged to another woman while professing his love to Wallen and asking her father's permission to marry her. Wallen found out about the other woman and sent her a text message, asking to meet in person to discuss the situation. She then sent a picture of the large field with a tree line.

Investigators said Tessier had texted an acquaintance late on September 3 asking for a ride to Baltimore, saying he needed help to "clean up a mess". But the acquaintance declined to assist, Manger said.

Wallen's family received text messages from her cellphone September 4, according to Manger.

He also allegedly admitted to sending Kadi text messages from Wallen's phone. It's unclear what the messages contained.

Police say that Tessier drove Wallen's auto to the apartment complex in Columbia, where the vehicle was later located.

He was also engaged to another woman at the time of Wallen's death.

Mark Wallen also described how hard it was to sit by Tessier and pretend to support him during a press conference earlier this week.

Police say it was a "calculated decision" by detectives to allow him to participate in the press conference to see what Tessier would say.

The Howard County mobile crisis team will be at Wilde Lake High School Wednesday evening to provide support to the entire Wilde Lake community. Manger said Tessier's believed to have driven Wallen's auto to Columbia, and that Tessier admitted to disposing of the car's front tag, as well as Wallen's driver's license and iPhone. "It was done with the approval and knowledge of the victim's family".

As of Thursday, there was no record of an attorney on file for Tessier.
