    Height: 5'3"
    Weight: 115 pounds
    Hair: Brown with frosted tips
    Eyes: Brown
    Sex: Female
    Race: White

    Remarks: Alexander was wearing the following items when she was found: tan corduroy jeans, a multi-colored plaid cotton/polyester shirt, blue knee socks, brown rippled- sole shoes, and a red nylon-lined man's windbreaker with black stripes down the arms and a collar label reading "Auto Sports Products, Inc." She was wearing a silver necklace with three small turquoise stones, one resembling a bird. She also had with her a two-piece locket keychain with one piece in the shape of a heart with a key-shaped slot cut in it and an inscription reading "He who holds the key can open my heart" and the second piece being the key that fits into the slot in the heart.

    DETAILS
    On November 10, 1979, the body of an unidentified 16-year-old White female was located in a cornfield off of New York State Route 20 in Caledonia, New York. The girl had been murdered with a .38 caliber weapon. She had been shot once in the head, dragged into the cornfield from the road, and then shot again in the back.

    On January 26, 2015, law enforcement officials in Livingston County, New York, announced that the female had been identifed, through the use of DNA, as Tammy Jo Alexander of Brookesville, Florida. Alexander had disappeared from her home in Florida in 1979. At the time, Alexander was known to run away from the area, sometimes hitchhiking with truckers, as she lived near a truck stop.

    All photos are still available on Cali's FB page under photos. I have not had time to decide what the page will get renamed to; I have ideas.
    January/ February are hard months for me with my old neighbors (like a grandpa to me) death 2 years ago; Tammy's ID; my dads 9 yr anniversary of his death then hubs gram passed Valentine's day at age 97. Been in a funk that I can't get out of.

    LCSO and the FBI really need for this flyer to keep moving far and fast through social media. If anybody can do this, we can. You can also find her post on Never Forget Me

    Please, we really need to keep the tips pouring in, and to do that, we need to keep her story out there.

    Having been hopeful for years and years that they would identify this girl, I'm glad to see this solved...but, I have no idea how they are going to be able to catch the person responsible after so much time, when the only thing even remotely tangible that they have to go on is a physical description. People can change in appearance, to the point of being completely unrecognizable, after 35 years.

    But, I will continue to be hopeful. Maybe someone will come forward...or maybe, for once, the murderer himself will actually manage to develop a conscience and turn himself in(the true murderer, that is...not the cowardly braggarts who want to take "the credit" while already serving sentences for other crimes).

    WSB TV Atlanta is reporting that Tammy had a connection to Rainbow Ministries in Young Harris, Georgia. Livingston County Sheriff Tom Dougherty indicated that Tammy was known to be in Young Harris during the Spring of 1979.

    The FBI is now saying that they believe that Tammy may have traveled from Florida to Caledonia with long-haul truckers.

    http://www.wsbtv.com/videos/news/1979-cold-case-murder-has-atlanta-connections/vDGhtM/

    That would seem to indicate that they are not putting much credence in the story about a wood-paneled station wagon.

    I'll save everyone the multiple clicks to follow posts to find a sketch. Someone on Cali's FB page suggested Zodiac Killer wiki I do not think she was killed by any serial killer
    Post KillerChaser links to in Cali's thread goes to Lindy Sue Biechler at zodiac killer site. There is another post at zodiac killer site The Mysterious Dr.No where someone left the link to OHIO TRUCK STOP KILLER on Google drive that has sketches

    These are the sightings I have so far

    1979 Caledonia NY Jane Doe Unidentified Teen shared their photo.

    490 in Rochester, NY
    SR 436 in Longwood, FL and I4 in Orlando, FL

    Driving home from work in Hamilton Ohio just north of Cincinnati (VIA WS)
