Accused killer added to Crime Stoppers 10 Most Wanted list
Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help tracking down a man Charlotte County deputies say was involved with the 2001 murder of 19 year old Tara Sidarovich. Phillip Barr, DOB 7/26/69, faces the charge of first degree murder in Sidarovich’s death. Earlier today, the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office announced the arrest of 39 year old David Ray McMannis, who has been taken into custody in Cumberland, Maryland, on the murder charge. Barr, however, remains on the run.
On September 14, 2012, at approximately 8:00 p.m. the Punta Gorda Police Department responded to the parking lot of the Charlotte High School in reference to a strong armed robbery.
The victim reported that a white male, described as wearing khaki shorts, black t-shirt, possibly between the ages of 15 and 20 attempted to forcibly grab her purse from her while she was walking towards her vehicle. The victim reported that the suspect was unsuccessful in taking her purse.
