Warrants: Missing teacher argued with boyfriend
Posted June 16, 2014
Charlotte, N.C. — A search warrant released in the search for a missing Charlotte-area teacher says she argued with her boyfriend before her disappearance.
The boyfriend reported Bianca Tanner missing June 8, saying she was intoxicated when she left their shared Charlotte home.
A search turned up a belt, cellphones and evidence of blood at the apartment. Tanner's three-year-old son also told detectives that his mother's boyfriend hurt her in the face, the warrants said.
Police Chief Rodney Monroe said last week that his officers are treating Tanner's case as a homicide investigation, and that he believes not all of the witnesses are telling the truth.
Tanner, 31, grew up in Garner and lived in Greensboro before moving to Charlotte, where she had been hired to work on a special project to improve educational opportunities for eight schools.
