    Tami and Christine were last seen in Florida on December 9 1988. They left school early in the day and were seen later that day hitchhiking north out of Florida. Tami had relatives in Indiana and had lived in Knox, IN. years earlier. On March 11 1989 Tami was found by a fisherman in a canal off State Rd. 8 in LaPorte county. Christine was found two days later, further down the same canal. Both were badly decomposed and were fully dressed except for underwear. Both girls had been strangled.

    There's not much on the web that I could find on this case with the exception of an old crime stoppers video, a little discussion on Topix and a old angelfire site I suppose was created by Tami's family. Its on no Indiana unsolved or cold case site that I can find.

    This appears to be the canal they were found according to the video.

    Here http://www.topix.com/forum/city/knox-in/TTAT8Q4D9GK3CS14K/tami-gifford-murdered


    Somebody wrote "I remember this when this happened.RUMOR went around that Walt Troy had something to do with this.He went to prison shortly after but is out now.May still be in this area."


    And TamiĀ“s mother answered this "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."

    Who is this Walter Troy?????
