COLUMBUS, Ga. (WRBL) — The Coweta County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) is charging the fiancé of a Georgia mother of three, who disappeared in 2021, with malice murder.
Tiffany Foster has been missing since March 1, 2021. Her fiancé, Reginald Robertson, has been behind bars since April 2021 on unrelated charges.
Officials said Foster’s disappearance has been suspicious from the start.
Foster’s mother, Katrina Hill, was first notified about her daughter’s disappearance by Foster’s fiancé, Reginald Robertson, when Foster did not come home one night; Hill said she believed Robertson might have been involved in Foster’s disappearance, according to WRBL.
The family is relieved to see the case is moving forward, but their biggest question remains: where is Tiffany?
Kimberly Bryan, Foster’s sister, was at work on Monday, July 31, 2023, when she got a text message from her mother that changed her life.
CCSO was requesting to meet with Bryan and her family to discuss new developments in the disappearance of Foster.
After 2.5 years of search parties and holding out hope, investigators say they have evidence indicating Tiffany is deceased and that her fiancé is a prime suspect. Investigators are not sharing the new evidence they have in order to protect the case.
“It’s kind of like once we get our footing, we get hit with something else,” Byran said. “She’s been missing for two years and (we’re) having the anxiety of when the phone rings, we don’t know when we’re going to hear something.
“To finally hear something, and it’s not what we wanted to hear … and having to digest that and the realization that she’s not coming home – although we’ve held out hope this long – is kind of a surreal thing.”
Bryan said that her family had suspicions about Robertson all along. She has many questions about her sister’s death, but one sticks out the most.
“Where’s my sister’s body? I want to know,” Bryan said. “I want to know where her body is so that we can lay her to rest properly.
“I feel like he kind of just threw her away somewhere … And how dare someone treat anyone – but especially her, my sister – that way.”
Bryan has been the rock for her family throughout the years and said she never gave up on her sister.
“This is my way of being able to do something conducive for the situation,” Bryan said. “What is it going to help, me sitting at home in my bed with the windows closed.”
Bryan said her family doesn’t have the closure they’re seeking just yet, but they believe the truth will come out in the court hearings ahead.
The family was offering a reward of $35,000 to $60,000 for Foster’s safe return. Tiffany’s mother, Katrina Hill, now plans to use the reward towards a foundation in her daughter’s honor to help other families who have gone through the same thing.
