Tammy Mahoney was last seen on the 8th of May 1981, close to Route 46 in Oneida, Madison County, New York. She was most likely visiting friends by hitchhiking.
Tammy was a nineteen-year-old girl who was studying at the State University of New York, and she was planning on becoming a vet.
Tammy was picked up and taken to a house on Territory Road, just off Route 46 in Oneida. There was a party happening at the home, and according to some witnesses, Tammy left the party on foot.
After the party, Tammy has not been seen or heard from since.
Tammy was reported missing on the 9th of May 1981.
Some information was given to law enforcement that stated that Tammy had been gang-raped and murdered at the party that night. Investigators have between twelve and fourteen suspects, but they do not have enough evidence to charge anyone with Tammy’s murder or disappearance.
In 2003 the Madison County sheriff believed that the case was ready to go to a grand jury as he believed he had found who was responsible for Tammy’s disappearance, however, the U.S. Attorney did not move forward with the case.
In October 2020, the FBI made a public appeal to someone who brought in a wallet to a police station just a week after Tammy disappeared. They stressed that the person who brought the lost wallet in is not in any trouble, but the information they have could be the one piece of information needed to solve Tammy’s case.
The FBI is offering a $20,000 reward for any information that leads to the discovery of Tammy, or the arrest and prosecution of those responsible for Tammy’s death or disappearance.
If you, or someone you know, has any information regarding Tammy’s disappearance or the wallet, please contact your local FBI or police office.
