Upon authorities coming across the body of Turpin at the couple’s rented condo in the Caribbean resort city of Playa del Carmen, near Cancun, John Loveless was detained at the airport in Cancun as he was set to board a flight to Atlanta.

A forensic examination determined Tamra Turpon dying of asphyxia by strangulation.

From there, the boyfriend told Tamra had been released from hospital but still wasn’t right and that she had died on Wednesday at the resort.

The pair had been on other vacations together as evidenced by photos on Tamra Turpin’s facebook page and had known each other for about a year.

Turpin’s relatives do not know yet how they will bring her body back home. They estimate it will cost $8,000 without funeral costs and have set up a Go Fund Me page to cover the expenses.

Turpin’s mother Evalena Duncan told KSDK she wanted to know the truth, whatever it may be. 

Told the mother: ‘We’re just praying that the truth be known and trying to deal with comprehending that she’s gone,’ 

 ‘Prayers are needed for our family. Prayers are needed for the family of the companion also.’

The mother went on to tell that her daughter came to be disabled after a car crash when she was a teenager and could not work, had never married or had children. Duncan also relayed her daughter loved animals and had several pets.

Reiterated Turpin’s cousin, Julie Burr:

‘We were in shock,’

‘I never expected anything like this.’

Of note, according to his Linkedin page John Loveless runs a personal injury firm in Saint Clair, Missouri, with online court records cited by heavy showing the man had been previously divorced and having children.

Of question is if Loveless conspired to murder Tamrin, then if so, why or could one wonder if her death was possibly accidental, or in the heat of the moment?

At present the lawyer remains in custody in Playa del Carmen as authorities try to understand why the man may have come to murder his girlfriend.

    John Loveless goes to court in Dec, How do I come by this? and why? Imagine being young, single, working, sometimes 60 hours a week, Renting a house, from John, and very happy to be in your own place, One day you come home to find a rose on your door step, A week or so later, he stops in to see how you have settled in, A friendship developed, He moves to a house near by, things become more romantic. Then one day you are living at his house more then your own, Driving to the store, and you notice one of the men who works for John driving behind you. It’s a small town, that happens. You come to a yellow light and stop, but when it turns red, you run it, and oh look that guy behind you did the same, He is following you, no matter which way you turn he is still there. Well John has been betrayed before so you let it go. On your return you notice an old van parked behind his office. He is there working late. Back to his house, you step into a warm bath, while waiting for him to return, a cold draft sweep through the house chilling your damp skin. and the outside door has just closed. You call out hello, no response. You step out of the tub to find yourself in and empty house. Of course you have to call him, he is still at work, so you have no idea who was in the house. It’s exciting to go on trips and helping decorate, (it was his party room below his office for me) Days later you see the old van again at the tidal office in Union and a large man getting out. Days, weeks go by, again you see the van, only this time with a women driving it, and every time you are alone in his house something odd happens, you find a child’s mitten on the floor, when there are no little ones around. Things turn up missing, when you know where you kept them. One day you come in with him, and find your dog bleeding, shes been cut open, he doesn’t want you to call the police. Your more worried about taking care of the dog at this point, and cleaning up the blood. You go on a shopping trip with him, He puts a hand on the pocket with his phone, then tells you he has to use the bathroom. You wait outside the door, and you hear him talking sweet, you of course assume he is speaking with one of his children, but find yourself wandering why he went in the bathroom, to talk. Later you look at his phone and he has deleted the call. This is all really playing on your trust but there is that trip to Cancun planned and you are excited. It’s some thing you could never do on your own. If you express any doubt in him, to his friends they just laugh at you, and again some thing bad happens, the dog is cut again. You feel reluctant to board that plane, leaving the country with some one you are loosing trust in, isn’t as easy. The trip turned out ok. but you decide to go back to your own home, weeks later. Too many odd things happen at his house. He tells everyone your crazy, He has strong influence, do to his position in the community. So when you tell anyone what happened it is just laughed off. He visits, leaves his phone behind, so went it rings you decide to take it to him at his office. The old van is there, when you go in he slams the bathroom door shut, and you hear alot of bumping around. He won’t come out and tells you to just leave it and go, but where is the driver of the van? You walk out, but then decide to see who comes out. he and the wife of someone (not saying) both come rushing out jump in the van and take off. At this point it’s really over. But the games of keeping you to afraid to speak out, get serious, cruel, and your new dog also ends up being cut open, this time in need of stitches. Along with many other things. because crazy is his way out. Because the community will stand behind him, No one will believe you.
    He sent me a message on Face Book asking if I have any dogs. It was a threat. One to keep me Quiet. Well here it is John you don’t have a reason to terrify me. Crazy or not, There is so much more to this story. Fear is not controlling my life ever again. Wow that felt good. I have needed to do that for over ten years.
