Erica Tanner (nee Parks) was born 1969. In 1987, she married Donald Tanner and had a daughter Bree in 1990.
As soon as they were married, things changed between Donald and Erica. He was no longer this charismatic romantic man but an abusive monster with an explosive temper.
By 1994, Erica decided she had to leave Donald after he struck Bree for being too loud. Unfortunately, Donald learned of her plans and killed her.
