Finding Tammy Jo Episode 3: He Who Holds the Key

May 15, 2016

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

Former Livingston County Sheriff John York played a crucial role in the Caledonia Jane Doe investigation. Initially assigned to the case as its lead investigator, he continued in that role throughout his career, even after he became sheriff in 1989.

York holds two keychains found on the girl inscribed with the words, "He who holds the key can open my heart."

York used every tool at his disposal to uncover the mystery of the girl's identity as well as the circumstances of her death, all the while never losing hope that someone would come forward with information that could break the case.
