SHS grad has featured role in new indie horror flick

Actress Tiffany Browne-Tavarez, a 2000 graduate of Salem High School, has a role in the soon-to-be-released feature film “Messenger of Wrath,” a horror/thriller about a neglected 12-year-old girl, Charlotte, who faces masked invaders breaking into her home late one night. While trying to escape, she learns of a far more dangerous threat lurking outside.

The independent film will be released Friday, Oct. 27, on Amazon Prime. It premiered Sept. 7 at Bow Tie Cinemas in Red Bank, N.J. Browne-Tavarez, 35, plays Det. Kana Miyoshi, a tough, wise, diligent law enforcement agent who has had her share of heartache.

“The character works extremely hard, and perhaps still cares for people more than she would like,” Browne-Tavarez said. “She was fun for me to play because her demeanor is so different from roles I normally play. Normally I’m cast as characters who show more warmth, but Kana is more sarcastic and less animated.”

WATCH: Heartbreak Leads to Hollywood Horror in Exclusive People Magazine Investigates Clip

It was a grisly discovery by a dog walker and her mother, made in early 2012 along a trail leading to the famed “Hollywood” sign: the severed head of a 66-year-old man.

In time, authorities would reveal that the head had belonged to Hervey Medellin, a former Mexicana Airlines clerk and art collector. His feet and hands were located about 50 yards away from the cave’s entrance, and years later, the rest of Medellin’s remains were retrieved from deep inside the cave.

Immediately, investigators zeroed in on Medellin’s boyfriend and roommate, Gabriel Campos-Martinez.

Police suspected the relationship soured and Medellin was going to leave Campos-Martinez. Friends told police that Medellin would never disappear to Mexico, that it was out of character for him. Foul play was suspected.

Medellin’s murder is the focus of the upcoming People Magazine Investigates episode “Hollywood Horror Story,”
