Unimaginable horror after ‘abundance of blood’ discovered in trunk before missing woman's remains found dumped in forest | The Sun

POLICE have tragically discovered the remains of a woman who has been missing since May 2022, after an "abundance of blood" was found in a truck.

The body of 37-year-old Tara Deaton was located inside Point Washington State Forest approximately one month after she was last seen by family and friends.

Deaton's body was discovered after 24-year-old Dagan Blake Boring, the man who allegedly admitted to killing the missing woman, led investigators to where he dumped her remains.

Florida's Walton County deputies said Boring confessed to beating Deaton, blacking out, and waking up to find he strangled the woman, Law and Crime reports.

The Walton County Sheriff's Office revealed on July 15 that Boring was arrested and charged with Deaton's murder.

Deaton was reported missing out of Kentucky two weeks after her gray Lexus coup was involved in a hit-and-run, deputies explained in a press release.

"The following day, May 24, the vehicle was found in a wooded area about two miles from the crash," the Sheriff's Office said.

"The car was impounded and brought to the Walton County Sheriff’s Office where a search warrant revealed blood in the trunk."

An extensive search ultimately led authorities to Boring, who is believed to have been in a relationship with the victim, on July 14 on Fort Walton Beach.

"The defendant admitted post-Miranda that he and the victim were in a physical altercation in Walton County, off of Sugar Drive, where he beat Tara with his fists,” deputies said, as per Oxygen.com.

"He loaded Tara in her car and started driving when a second altercation occurred," deputies added.

"The defendant stated he blacked out, but when he came to, he believed that he strangled her and she was deceased.”

Boring was arrested for homicide and booked into the Walton County Jail without bond, where he remains.

An arrest report, obtained by Oxygen.com, revealed phone records to show "constant communication" between Deaton and Boring up until May 22.

May 23 was reportedly the day friends and family last heard from the Deaton.

The vehicle was later found in a "secluded area approximately two miles from the location of the hit and run" two days later.

A search warrant led investigators to discover an "abundance of blood" in the car's trunk.

Boring also allegedly confessed to driving around with Deaton's body in the trunk for "approximately one day" prior to leaving her remains, which were put in a sleeping bag, in the forest.

Sheriff Michael Adkinson said: "This is not the ending we hoped for.

“But, with a successful prosecution, we hope to bring some closure to Tara’s loved ones.”

Following the discovery of Deaton's remains, a friend took to Facebook to urge others to "get help."

Jessica Caudill wrote: "Get HELP if you need it. Get out of abusive relationships! You CAN do it. There is light on the other side!!! You don’t have to do it alone.

"This is not okay and should never have gotten to this point. This sweet girl was one of my best friends growing up.

"We spent every day of seventh grade on a trampoline and countless sleepovers belting out Mariah Carey and laughing til we cried. She mattered. Tara did not (and NO one) deserve this."

Beth Atha, a cousin of Deaton's, also posted on Facebook to express her sadness and push for justice.
