You will see it on other blogs and Wikepedia later, they always wait for me to do the research and they repost it. lol. Remember, you read it here first.
I have finally found and confirmed the basis for this movie. The Killing Secret also known as The Secret is based on the story of Emily Jeanette Garcia. Emily was brutally murdered in 1993 in Texas.
In my opinion, the movie is only "inspired by actual events" because there are so many facts that have been changed. Oddly though, the producers chose to keep the first name "Emily" the same which is so rare. There was not a lot of coverage on the case. There were some initial articles when the body was found, but not much about the case after that. Unlike in the movie, there was never a conviction in the case. This case is still open. I am glad the producers did not leave us hanging on at the end, but at the same time I am extremely disappointed to learn that this case has not been solved. There are so many theories flying around about this case. Some of which the family has chosen to keep private. There are many facts in the case that I am not able to reprint according to the family because they do not want it to hinder the investigation further. I have decided instead to direct you to the family website. The information there is extensive. Please read through the case load. Perhaps someone out there will know something. I will say this. The movie as you see it is what the family feels happened in the real case, except for the conviction. The family had no idea there had been a movie made about the case at all. The mother (at the time) does not have internet access or cable and had not spoken to anyone about the case except for a few psychics, police, and family. Someone very very close to the case released some very intimate clues, which you will find in the movie. I was hoping I could bring you more info without having to just direct you to the site, but since the case is still open it is better just to post a link.
So here is the link to the family's website

As you can see the movie changed the race of the person. The real Emily was mixed. Her mother is White and the father is Mexican. Here are a few pics of Emily. Also included is a link to the youtube video featuring the show Paranormal (Emily and Savannah episode). The girl Savannah lived in Las Vegas and reported that Emily had visited her many times. The show tried to help her locate the real story of Emily.

When I first started researching this movie. This case kept popping up, and for a long time I thought maybe it could be the basis because it sounded so much like this true story. The dates were not correct so I knew that this one was not the basis, and had it not been for the email that I received as to the true basis of the story above, I would never have found it. This homicide case is that of Becky Stowe aka Rebecca Lynn Stowe. The show Unusual Suspects just profiled her case recently. Here is a picture of Becky. I thought you might be interested in comparing the two cases. The two stories are eerily similar. In fact, a psychic was instrumental in solving this case as well.
This case featured an all American football player who killed his pregnant girlfriend Becky Stowe. Becky Stowe was considered the girl from the other side of the tracks. Rob was dating another blonde cheerleader at the time. He was considered the boy next door. He was polite and mature for his age. When he found out that Becky was pregnant, he devised a plan to have her killed. Becki was missing for a couple of years before her body was found. He passed the polygraph test, and he even fooled police detectives. But, the help of a psychic helped reveal that Becki was murdered by a person with the name L. That man turned out to be Robbie Leaman. He finally confessed to murdering Becki. He was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life in prison.
ROBERT EUGENE LEAMON is still in prison. Here is a recent photo of him along with some inmate info. And to think he was so close to getting away with murder....wow.
