Circumstances of Disappearance:
|Unknown. Salena was reported missing by
her husband, Tyrone Tackett (photo at right) on January 30, 2003. They lived in the
100 block of Secretariat Place in Hendersonville, Tennessee at the
time. They had been married only a week prior to her disappearance.
Tyrone said he fell asleep with their small child in the evening and
when he woke up later that night, his wife was missing, along with a
large sum of money. Salena has never been seen or heard from
again. Neighbors of the Tackett family say Tyrone and Salena
had a troubled relationship, but police have not been able to prove
that she left him of her own accord. After her disappearance two
anonymous letters were sent to investigators insinuating that the
author may have information on Salena's disappearance and that foul
play may be involved in her case. The individual did not contact
authorities again and has never been identified. Salena's family says
she was afraid for her life in the days prior to her disappearance.
She did not tell them why. Tyrone Tackett was arrested in July 2011 after being indicted by a grand jury on charges of solicitation to commit murder of his wife. Her whereabouts remains unknown and foul play is suspected due to the circumstances involved..
