Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
She was last seen at approximately 8:00 a.m. on Court Street in Exeter, New Hampshire as she was walking to school.
Police began eyeing Victor G. Wonyetye as a suspect about three days into the investigation. He was on parole as a sex offender after being sentenced in 1979 to serve from 7 1/2 to 15 years in prison for sexually assaulting his then-13-year-old stepdaughter; he was approved for parole in 1983. Wonyetye, who had spent time in Florida and New Hampshire, was living in Rye and working at an auto body shop in Exeter at the time.
Police said Wonyetye's car was seen in the area around the time Tammy disappeared. A truck driver who was making an early morning delivery at a store saw the blue car with a broken taillight and Florida registration on Tremont Street in Exeter, which is next to the Lincoln Street School. Others reported seeing the same car.
Wonyetye was never charged in connection with Tammy's disappearance. He died in a Florida prison hospital in 2012. Wonyetye denied that he had anything to do with Tammy's disappearance. He is also a suspect in the disappearance of Christy Luna.
