Murder of Tammy Alexander
Tammy Jo Alexander (previously known as the Caledonia Jane Doe or ""Cali Doe"") was a homicide victim found in the town of Caledonia, in New York's Livingston County, on November 10, 1979. She had been shot twice sometime during the previous night and left in a field just off U.S. Route 20 near the Genesee River in the eastern end of town. Her body was discovered the next day, but she was not identified until 2015, over 35 years later.Tan lines on her upper body led investigators to believe that she had come to the Caledonia area from a distant, warmer locale. While most evidence at the scene had been washed away by heavy rain that night, forensic palynology, or the analysis of pollen in her clothing, suggested she had spent time in Florida, southern California, Arizona or northern Mexico prior to her death. Later analysis of isotopes in her bones lent further support to this geographic clue.During the years when she remained unidentified, her case was well-publicized by the Livingston County Sheriff's Office, which continued to investigate the case, processing thousands of leads and tips from the public. John York, one of the first deputies to respond to the original crime scene, made the case a priority during his quarter-century tenure as sheriff. Serial killer Henry Lee Lucas at one point confessed to the crime, but like many other such high-profile crimes he claimed to be responsible for, the confession was never considered credible. She was buried in a cemetery in Dansville a village in the southern part of the county.Alexander was finally identified as the result of efforts by a school friend of hers from Brooksville, Florida, to locate her in the 2010s. Unable to find her on social media or through other conventional means, she turned to Alexander's family, who told her that Tammy, who often ran away from home, had not been seen or heard from since the late 1970s. In 2014 they filed a missing persons report with the Hernando County, Florida, sheriff's office; shortly afterwards a CPA and artist, who had painted one of the reconstructions of the unidentified girl's face saw the report online and, noting the similarities, contacted the Livingston County sheriff. A mitochondrial DNA match with one of Alexander's living relatives was made early in 2015.
