The Coed Call Girl Murder, written by Fannie Weinstein and Melinda Wilson, is your basic murder story involving 23 year old Tina Biggar and her double life as a prositute. Published on May 21, 2001.

It wasn't until Tina's murder that her family found out about her double life. I can't imagine the horror, pain, and humiliation they must have suffered. And deep regret because I'm sure they'll always feel that if they had known, they would have done everything in their power to stop her from entering a world that would destroy her life. The thing I liked about this book is the honest look at the victim. I understand one of her friends has said she didn't think the book showed a fair representation of Tina, but according to the author, the quotes and actions of Tina before her murder came from sources like her live-in boyfriend, close friends and coworkers.

THE CO-ED CALL GIRL MURDER is a true crime retelling of the life and death of Tina Biggar, college student by day and call girl by night, who was murdered by a delusional john.

Fannie Weinstein, Melinda Wilson . Only with her tragic murder did the twisted story of Tina's shocking double life emerge before the horrified eyes of those who knew and loved he. .Also, since they spend so much time talking about how much it hurt the victim's father when the media dragged his daughter's name through the mud, writing a book about the case and calling it "The Coed Call Girl Murder" wasn't the most sensitive choice. Those closest to the victim didn't realize she was working for an escort service until after she was murdered. Some still find it hard to believe.

Co-ed Call Girl is a 1996 American television film, starring Tori Spelling. It was directed by Michael Ray Rhodes and was first aired at CBS in February 1996 Tori Spelling as Joanna. Susan Blakely as Teri Halbert. Scott Plank as Ron Tamblin. Carmen Argenziano as Henry Binder. Jeri Ryan as Kimberly.

Bright and magnetic, Tina Biggar was an all-American girl from a picture-perfect family. She studied hard and played hard, and when a subject interested her, she couldn't let it go. At college, Tina worked on a research project, interviewing prostitutes about AIDS awareness. Later, she explored on her own the seedy world of the high-class call girl, and walked into a nightmare she's never return from.Living off-campus with her boyfriend, Todd, Tina's interest has taken a dangerous turn. One of her family and friends suspected that the twenty-three-year-old blonde was secretly working as a call girl for three shadowy escort services, providing sexual favors to strangers for one hundred dollars an hour.Then one day Tina was gone. Four weeks later, police found her decomposed body behind a vacant house--hidden there by a forty-one-year-old treacherous ex-con and regular client who would be charged with her violent death. Only with her tragic murder did the twisted story of Tina's shocking double life emerge before the horrified eyes of those who knew and loved her.

I usually avoid writing reviews on true crime stories because a friend or family member of the victim may not like what I have written and I get bad comments. But, I feel this story is different because the victim was not a drug addict who turned to prostitution to feed her habit, It's about Tina Biggar, a young college student who picked prostitution as a class assignment in order to educate prostitutes on the dangers of AIDS and other STD's. Unfortunately, she got too caught up in what she was doing, especially when she found out she could make more money in one night that would take her 6 months to earn at the restaurant she worked at, and that's what got her caught up in the dangerous world of prostitution.

I saw Tina's story on a TV show and the prosecutor who put her killer behind bars, seems to think that Tina may have seen the movie, "Pretty Woman," a story about a prostitute who finds love with a rich man, and was looking for a similar life. When her killer told her he was rich, she thought she found her Richard Gere. When she found out he was nothing but a sleaze, she got angry, so did he, and he brutally ended her life.

It wasn't until Tina's murder that her family found out about her double life. I can't imagine the horror, pain, and humiliation they must have suffered. And deep regret because I'm sure they'll always feel that if they had known, they would have done everything in their power to stop her from entering a world that would destroy her life. I think Tina knew that, too, that's why she never told anyone.

The thing I liked about this book is the honest look at the victim. I understand one of her friends has said she didn't think the book showed a fair representation of Tina, but according to the author, the quotes and actions of Tina before her murder came from sources like her live-in boyfriend, close friends and coworkers. She did some things that were immoral and she didnt seem very mature, but she was very young and she deserved a life. What I hate about the media's coverage of this case is the almost flippant attitude towards tina's murder, as if she deserved it being in that line of work. Everyone makes mistakes, some bigger than others, but Tina didn't sound like a bad person- just a confused, immature young girl who was holding a lot of anger about her boyfriend's infidelities. Ms Weinstein didn't express any opinions about Tina- she simply quoted her and detailed her actions. I see an honest view of a sad case, not a twisting of events to sell a book. Even close friends sometimes have no idea of what goes on behind closed doors or in a person's mind.

After doing a paper about prostitution, a college student became curious about the escort services, and decided it would be a reasonable way to resolve her financial problems.

Yes, this book was far MORE than I ever expected! You see I KNEW the young woman that was written about in this book. We met in college. She was in a few of my classes and we used to study together in the social area in the college.
I was sadden over what I read but it does not affect the wonderful memories of her as a person. I will never forget her!!!
crazy mashine
I actually knew Tina. She was a good friend and a great conversationalist. Rest in peace pal.

This small town college girl really surprised me and this book is a real page turner only took me a few days to finish in between work and sleep. There are many people in the world that can't be trusted and this killer was one. Being in the wrong place at the wrong time and money isn't everything are the moral of this story. Again Gregg Olsen has written a winner.
