Finding Tammy Jo Episode 2: Boiled Ham

May 8, 2016

The story of a girl's mysterious murder in 1979 continues in the second episode of this series.

After the body of a teenager is found in a cornfield in Caledonia, New York, police have to start their investigation from scratch. The girl had no identification, and there were no apparent witnesses, so then-investigator John York and his team head out on foot to retrace her steps.

In a diner the next town over, they find the person who is probably among the last to see the Jane Doe alive, and she tells them the girl wasn't alone.
