Stern was last seen in Neptune, New Jersey on the afternoon of December 2, 2016. She has never been heard from again. Her vehicle, a silver four-door 1994 Oldsmobile 88, with the New Jersey license plate number WA337S, was found abandoned on the Route 35 Bridge in Belmar, New Jersey at 2:45 a.m. on December 3. It was in working order and the keys were inside it.

In February 2017, Liam McAtasney and Preston Taylor were charged in Stern's case. Photos of them are posted below this case summary. Both of them had known Stern since childhood and were friends with her in high school; in fact, Taylor had been Stern's junior prom date. They both had participated in the search for her.

I don't even know how to start here; I watched the 20/20 episode on this case last week, and I'm still reeling. I feel like I need to re-watch it, but I just can't yet. I'd read about the case and the "confession tape", but avoided watching the tape- I'm not able to be as detached as I used to be when it comes to true crime, and maybe that's good. Watching that tape was one of the most horrifying, vile, heinous experiences I've ever had. I cried, yelled, and had to work hard not to throw up (and I'm not a puker). Those boys- God, I literally can't find words. How do you do that to ANYONE, let alone a friend? I can't begin to imagine how Sarah felt; again, I have no words for the horror of it. And for what- MONEY? Was the money worth it, you little <censored> monsters? All the loss and heartbreak Sarah and her father had experienced, and you have the unmitigated gall to hatch this plan and go through with it? WTH is wrong with people? I try to be very careful in re: karma, and wishing bad things on people, but I hope they suffer brutally for the rest of their worthless lives.
I will post more cohesive thoughts on the case when I've calmed down (if that's possible), but I had to vent.
💞Thank you @kdg411 for starting this thread, and to @Paradise & everyone for your help...

I just watched it yesterday and I think as bad and heinous as everything else they did was what they tried to do to her father--spread rumors rampant of how she wanted to get away from him and how awful he was... At least he had a chance on the stand to show some of his relationship with his daughter and that they cared about each other. Watching him break down throughout was hard as well. I wanted to go in and attack these "boys"--BRUTALLY myself.

And then this perp's mother who can't bring herself to believe he did this?? I guess when your son does something that evil on so many levels and the world knows it, she can either hide or deny...

The one female I think it was a detective or prosecutor said she had seen much in her career and terrible things but nothing like this and the absolute lack of anything human in this perp/the perps (paraphrasing on my part).

I agree with you in that there are not words for this one. I wanted to hurt them at the same time as I wanted to hug her father...
