The case received widespread attention when the teacher, Laura Wallen, was reported missing early last week.

Her father Mark Wallen went to her condo but could not find her and became anxious for her safety.

Tyler Tessier was ordered held without bond Thursday after being charged with killing his girlfriend, a pregnant Howard County high school teacher who vanished last week.

Prosecutors said Tessier was a liar, whose statements to police in the days between when Wallen went missing and when her body was found were filled with "hundreds of inconsistencies".

Wallen encouraged Moore to pursue her goal of becoming a Navy pilot, even when the student doubted she could do it. "We just want her back". "Please keep Ms. Wallen's family in your thoughts".

Police said Tessier was the last person known to have been with Wallen.

Wallen's sister informed detectives that she was four-months pregnant with Tessier's child, according to the Montgomery County Police Department.

A search and rescue team found her body about noon Wednesday near Prices Distillery Road in Damascus, Maryland, Montgomery County Police Chief Tom Manger said during a news conference Wednesday night. It's unclear whether they lived together.

"Laura, if you're listening, it doesn't matter what's happened". It doesn't matter what type of trouble. "There's nothing we can't fix together", Tesser said Monday, facing the camera. Police do not know of a motive. "These are the kinds of cases where so often, they have an impact on the area where they occur".

He alleged that Tessier admitted to removing the front tag from Wallen's vehicle and disposing of it. "Tessier also texted an acquaintance asking for a ride to Baltimore late Sunday night, and said he needed help cleaning up a mess".

Manger said that Wallen sent a text message to either her sister or a friend on September 2, "saying that Tyler had taken her to an open field up in the Damascus area", Manger recalled.

Manger said that police determined those texts had been sent by Tessier.

"Tyler has me on an adventure in the country", one text read, according to information obtained by the Post.

"I'm probably going to lose my job over this", said another. "She made sure that I did what I had to do".

Tessier was living at three different locations during the week, and police said they have questioned the people he stayed with.

"She just turned it around", Jawan Taylor said of his time at Wilde Lake.

"How could you be possessed with so much hate to take a soul that means so much to people?" said an emotional Saquan Maxwell, who says Wallen was his mentor. "Cadaver dogs indicated on the area" and ultimately detectives found the body of Laura Wallen "in a shallow grave", said Manger. "It was done with the approval and knowledge of the victim's family".

Wallen then sent her sister a photo of a field in Demascus.

He knew she had been preparing her classroom for two weeks and had a "joy in her heart" for her job, Mark Wallen said.
