FBI says wallet dropped off in 1981 could be the key to solving Tammy Mahoney case

The FBI says a wallet anonymously dropped off in 1981 could be the key to solving the case of a missing teen last seen in Central New York nearly 40 years ago.

Tammy Mahoney, 19, hasn't been seen since May 8, 1981, when she was hitchhiking south of Oneida on Rt. 46 near the Oneida Indian Nation. One week later, on May 15, an unknown person turned in a wallet to the Oneida City Police station. FBI special agent Thomas Relford says they need to find this person. “Precise location of where the wallet was found and other details provided is critical to our investigation, even though they may not realize it," said Relford. "I want to stress this individual is not in trouble."

FBI investigators believe the wallet's owner knows what happened to Tammy. “The owner of the wallet has direct knowledge of what happened that night and saw [Tammy] the night of her disappearance.” The wallet's owner has spoken to authorities before, but the FBI would like to speak with them again.

FBI 'close' to solving Tammy Mahoney disappearance, missing teen not seen for 40 years

ONEIDA, N.Y. — Tomorrow marks 40 years since the disappearance of Tammy Mahoney. The 19-year-old was last seen on Route 46 in Oneida back in 1981. Four decades later, investigators say they are close to cracking this case.

"She missed her entire life...she lost everything." - Denise Sinuk, Tammy Mahoney's sister
It is a decades-old cold case that has haunted the Oneida community. It was May 8, 1981 when SUNY Morrisville student Tammy Mahoney disappeared. She was last seen hitchhiking along Route 46 near the Oneida Indian Nation when she vanished. Police believe she was kidnapped, gang raped and murdered. "We are all somewhat haunted and tormented by what happened," said Denise Sinuk, Mahoney's sister.

Forty years after her disappearance, Mahoney's family is still mourning her loss, left with the agony of losing her so young. "She missed her entire life. She missed the opportunity to become the person she was meant to be. She lost everything. And we know that, we grieve that."

Oh, I hope the headline is accurate. I can't believe so many people are just keeping this horrible secret, year after year. I remember an article from the years back saying that the people who know something were (by then) parents and watching their own kids grow up. Well now they're grandparents most likely. Still no pangs of the conscience?

Bumping for Tammy for the upcoming anniversary of her disappearance.
I think there are probably pangs of conscious, but they are likely coupled with threats. Many of those who know what happened may have figured it won't bring her back. I'd thought there be an anonymous letter to at least let the families know where she is. But she may be unrecoverable, or the location directly ties to the perpetrators, and back to the threats. Those who could've spoken up but didn't due to fear for themselves, are now in fear for their children and grandchildren's safety.
