  • Details of Disappearance
    Tammy was picked up while hitchhiking in the City of Oneida, Madison County, NY and taken to a party on the Oneida Indian Territory, Route #46 in the City of Oneida. Tammy has not been seen since that night, and her remains have never been found. Five months passed before police learned Tammy was on the Indian Territory.

    Mahoney was born on Aug. 29, 1961 in Farmingdale, a town on Long Island. After graduating high school, she moved to Madison County where she studied animal husbandry at Morrisville State College.

    Many people claim to have knowledge of the incident, but will only speak anonymously. Further, not all their stories line up.

    Some say she was buried on the Oneida Nation Territory; others say she’s on the Onondaga Nation Territory near Syracuse, or somewhere in between near a pile of rocks next to a large tree.

    Several sources say that Mahoney was hit in the head with a rock by her attackers.

    Since 1981, the case has been investigated by Oneida City Police, the Madison County Sheriff’s Office, the Oneida Nation Police, New York State Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
