On February 12, 2015, 44-year-old Tammy Meyers took her 15-year-old daughter Kristal Meyers for her first driving lesson. On their way home from the lesson (Tammy was behind the wheel), Kristal says a silver car started riding their bumper and then sideswiped their 1993 Buick. The driver got out and started threatening them. “I’m going to kill you and your daughter,” Kristal said the driver said. Later, the silver car appeared at their house and, according to police, released 22 rounds from a .45 caliber Ruger. Tammy Meyers died two days later from a gunshot wound. 19-year-old Erich Nowsch Jr., who lived a block away from the Meyers family, was charged with murder. Prosecutors allege 26-year-old Derrick Andrews was the driver when Nowsch was shooting. Nowsch and Andrews are facing murder charges.
It’s been almost a year since Tammy Meyers’ death and her husband Bob Meyers has yet to lay his wife’s ashes to rest. (Her body was cremated: some ashes will be scattered and others interred at the family plot.) Bob Meyers says he’s waiting until after Nowsch’s trial starts in March. “Because everything that was said about my wife, when I put my wife in the ground, I want all the truth out. And I think the only way we’re going to get that out is from a trial, ’cause I know there’s a whole bunch more evidence about that night,” said Bob Meyers. ABC 20/20 airs Fridays at 10pm on ABC.
