Warrants: Missing teacher argued with boyfriend

Posted June 16, 2014

— 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.

    Boyfriend did all of this in front of a 3 year old child, not realizing the child was seeing and listening to all that was going on. Had he known all of this, he most likely would have done the same to the young boy as he did to his mother. Her own child is going to get justice for his mommy. I pray he is in a loving home surrounded with love for him.

    What is with all the violence against women?

    Women should not intimadate a man. Learn to leave him alone. Close your mouth for a change. Get out of the relationship. Learn what happens to others can certainly happen to you. Stop the nick picking. Never allow any man to text or call you when you have a man in your life living with you. If you are not married then stop living with a man you know know much about. Use common sense ladies. You know right from wrong. Follow you heart and not what the man is saying to you. If I said those same words to you, would you swallow my words. I don't think so. So wake up and protect your precious life. Better is on the other side of the fence.

    Why are the witnesses not telling the truth? What is it was them? Have they thought of this 3 year old who no longer has a mother. Such heartless people. They will never have peace not until they tell the police exactly what happen. Just wondering if any of those witness was involved in her disappearance or murder!

    I now believe the boyfriend took her life. I saw an article in my greenboro paper where the 3 year old talked. Its time for the boyfriend to man-up and tell the truth. He will be facing life in prison in the end. Young ladies, time and time again I have warn you about certain men entering your life. When are you going to wake up and see the kind of danger you are inviting into your life? With her kind of educational background, she should have never involved herself with this man in the first place. My prayers are with the family and friends and her son. I pray they find her asap.

    Hitting your girlfriend is illegal, however.

    Except her baby told police that her boyfriend hurt her in the face. That's not just arguing, that's domestic violence.

    There is nothing illegal about arguing, everyone has one from time to time.
