I would appreciate any info on the 21 yr. old cold case. My daughter was found in the davidson ditch off Hwy. 8 along with her friend Lyn. She had been missing for 3 months from Florida. She was visiting our home town of Knox. Please help a mother with closure. The killers are still loose.

According to the police, it was just a rumor. I for one think it is all just a cover up. The cops did a lousy job on both my daughters case and the one of all the teens at walter troys house. I think they are connected. My daughter was in Knox, the cops say she was not. There were wittnesses that saw my Tami. Last I checked, Troy was in South Bend Ind.

Yes, very suspicious. My daughter was seen with those teens and she was found right down the road from the house the teens died in. It was proven later that the heater was not faulty.

Well, here it is, the holiday season, the worse time of the year for me. My Tami left home around the 8th of December, was not found til March 11th. That was in 1989, I am still waiting for answers. Someone knows something, please help me.

They are making playing cards now with cold cases on each one and giving them to the prisons in the hopes someone in there will know something and tell. My daughter is going to be in the Indiana 3rd edition which is coming out soon. I am praying it will help.

I remember Tami and Lynn from Crestview High. We weren't close but were acquaintances. I also remember Cori too. I remember seeing the girls hang out together at school and vaguely remember hearing something about them running away. The next thing I know I remember the police coming to the school explaining what happened and then asking parents to have their children fingerprinted. I remember being in shock that they were murdered. I am so sorry for your loss and I pray her and Lynn's killer(s) will be caught. Has anything ever been aired on TV, Unsolved mysteries or on the ID channel about the murders? I know back in 1989 DNA testing was still in the beginning stages, I think. Were any DNA samples taken from your daughter or her clothing- anything that might have been overlooked that could help solve it today? I have heard that killers who leave their victims in plain sight usually want the body to be found. I really hope the killer is caught, but if not in this life, rest assured the person will be brought to justice before God. Blessings and Prayers.....

My daughter has a site that tells all about it on facebook. Both her and Lyn were found floating in water in a man made ditch. DNA was done recently. If you are still in Crestview, please keep the story going in case someone there knows more than what has been told. Thank you

I most certainly will, even though I no longer live there, I still visit family there. Have you had any contact with Lyn's sister Leigh? Take care...

We did not know Lyn, only heard about her when they left. never knew she had a sister. We had to tell the police who she was and where her family was, supposedly in Culman Alabama. That is all we knew. The police told us her family never claimed her, she was buried by the state.
Just saying
