Around Labor Day weekend 1984 I attended a picnic/party with my parents at the house next door to Tammy's. Her next door neighbor was my step-father's boss, so I didn't know anyone there and there were a lot of adults. I was not quite a year older than Tammy, and being a little bored with the party, I was drawn to Tammy and the other kids who were playing in her backyard. Someone even took us on a boat ride in the creek that ran behind their house. When my mother told me a few months later that Tammy had been abducted, it affected me deeply, even though I'd only met her briefly. It was one of the first times I'd known of a kidnapping case (other than Adam Walsh) and it came as a shock that it could happen to someone I knew. I began clipping articles about missing children and became rather frightened of the possibility of it happening again to me or someone I knew. Over the years I've checked back online to see if the case has been solved. My heart goes out to her family. I hope they solve the case one day soon. It's hard to hold onto hope after this long, but as the cases of Shawn Hornbeck and Elizabeth Smart showed us, you just never know. She could be alive and well and just afraid, for whatever reason, to let anyone know who she is.

There is someone out there in the world that knows what happened to Tammy. Please visit my site:

http://www.angelfire.com/nh/Refinnej/page3.html

It's for Tammy. Leave me an anon message. I'll pass the info on to the proper officials. It has been a very long time. It's bee too long and Tammy needs to be found. Even if you think "maybe" I know something, leave me a message.

I have age progressed photos of Tammy on my site thanks to the Center for Missing and Exploited Children. If you know anything; if you remember something from that day, even if you think it may or may not have anything to do with the abduction, just let me know.

Thank you!

Jennifer

Her left eye turns outward. These articles are stating she is cross-eyed, having one eye weaker than the other, does not make her cross-eyed. Please correct that. I hope and pray everyday that they find her. I am a mother also, of 3 daughters. I would die if anything happened to any one of them.

I took the call reporting Tammy's disappearance. Unlike many other calls I'd fielded, I had an immediate gut reaction to this one. I knew that this would be an important, life-altering event; and it was - not only for Tammy's family, but for our entire community. Our innocence was destroyed that day.

I cannot believe that the one know suspect in this heartbreaking case had a photo of Tammy in his house. That's not enough evidence? It is at least something to go on and that fact is the first I have heard of it. Was Victor G Wonyetye Jr. every thoroughly grilled and polygraphed? If he had a pic of her in his house, he has to know something.

I was in english class with Tammy. I remember watching her walking up the street as my bus pulled away the day before. She was a nice girl, she ignored me for the most part, which was fine. I do remember that she was one of the few people that actually came when I'd sprained my ankle the month before.

We pray for Tammy regularly, I spoke with a friend about missing children and mentioned Tammy...this lady is gifted..she said there was a very dark haired 19 yr old within 1/4 mile, living in a "hectic" household, he had a weak excuse for not being at work that day - please don't think we are nuts..she has had very strong feelings before that have been right on....

I'll never forget how profoundly Tammy's abduction affected my childhood. I was 10 at the time of her abduction. Although I was living in Somersworth at the time and never met Tammy, my grandmother, Wanda was an administrative assistant at the Exeter Police Dept. I recall helping my grandmother canvas Somersworth and Dover with Tammy's posters. I recall being preoccupied that year with finding her, thinking that if I just looked in my shed or under the desks at school she'd appear, but of course wishing it never made it happen. When I was 11, a frightening incident happened to me when I snuck out of my neighborhood on my bike and biked to the old Heberts store in Somersworth: At the four-way intersection, while I was walking my bike to the left of the road, a man in a large pick up truck stopped in the road, threw his door open, pointed at me and began to run towards me. I was so surprised, that I turned around to see if there was someone behind me that he was running to. As suddenly as that occured, another man stopped his vehicle and physically and bodily intercepted the man. I stood there in horrorifed shock, just staring, as that man held the other back. The man who intercepted the other man looked at me intensly and yelled, "Run! RUN!". I immediatly bolted towards the Heberts store and ran inside. Unfortunatly, because I was not allowed to be out of my neighborhood and feared "getting in trouble", I never told anyone at the store, nor did I ever tell my parents until I was an adult. If I had not been fearful of consequences, I could have talked to the police when my memory of the men's descriptions was clear and I could have possibly remembered a detail about the make, model and license plate of the vehicles. Before this posting, I never really connected that the possible abduction attempt made on me could have had something to do with Tammy, but now I think I should talk to the Exeter police about it in case any little detail I have could help in her case, or another child's case.

Someone who was friends with Victor Wonyetye and hung out with Victor when Tammy Belanger vanished says he was with him when Victor had Tammy in his car. He says he knows what happened to Tammy. The police have talked to him more than once but, to my knowledge, not recently. And the police don't do anything on a regular basis to get this friend of Victor to tell his story. He was living in the Portsmouth area for a long time. They should be able to stay in touch with him and try to get him talking. Maybe he's afraid to talk because Victor will be out in a couple of years plus it would make him an accomplice to her abduction.

Tammy's story should be in the local news at least once a year but it's not. Most people don't want to think about it. It's easier for them to forget. And the police don't like to see it in the news because as one officer said "everybody comes out from under their rocks" when it's in the papers. That's a quote from an officer involved with the case. I guess he doesn't want a lot of leads to follow up on. It must be too much trouble and too much work for him. But if one of those leads panned out it would be worth it.

I don't understand why they don't contact Victor's friend at least once a year and ask him if his memory has improved any since the last time they talked. Or is it harassment to call him and ask to talk?

I think some of the people who are supposed to be working on this case are too comfortable with how things are and want something to fall into their lap. I don't know if anyone is pursuing anything with any passion.

I know who the guy is that says he was with Victor and, as I said, the police know who he is. I hope he lives long enough to do the right thing and tell what he really knows.

The anniversary of Tammy's disappearance is coming up. There should be something in the papers. I hope somebody in the press in the Seacoast area has the decency to tell Tammy's story again and let people know that the only suspect in the case, Victor Wonyetye, will be out in a couple of years. And someone who was buddies with him at the time says he knows what happened.
Bless those who seek the truth.

I was a Junior in High School when Tammy went missing. I was friends with her brother Brain and sat in front of him in Home Room (having the same last name). This story has always haunted me, I was a volunteer on the Brentwood fire department at the time and I remem
ber skipping class to walk down to the Exeter firestation with a friend of mine (also from Brentwood and also a volunteer) to try to join the search - we got turned away because they said they "already had enough people" which struck me as odd considering the circumstance but on looking back it may have been mroe because we were young and it was probably a nightmare to coordinate such a thing. Every few years I think of Tammy (usually in the Fall) and wonder, and I was not aware that there was really good suspect or some of these other details. I know there is only so much publicly available info in cases such as this but if someone could point me to a good source I'd app
reciate it.

Actually thinking of it I was a Senior having graduated in '85, and I can't type for beans so you probably figured out her brother's name is Brian and not Brain :) - but that's not important. I read somewhere else that there was speculation that her body could have been disposed of in a junk car to be crushed\shredded. There were definitely "junkyards" in the area (one in Brentwood and one in Epping for sure) - interesting theory. I have always had the feeling she was killed and in my minds eye (and no I am not a psychic) I see dead dry leaves and feel like there is an association with rte 108 and maybe the Exeter River... I always wondered if anyone had approached reputable (so to speak) psychics on it.

I think Victor Wonyetye gets out of jail in 2011. I'll check his page on the Florida prison site where they keep him now and find out for sure. I just hope they stick a Lojack in him before they let him out so they can track him like an animal and keep him from preying on kids again. If anyone has knowledge of Victor Wonyetye and Tammy's disappearance they should go to the police now and do something right in their life. It's never too late to tell the truth.

Below is the info as of 2/7/10 on the only suspect ever named in Tammy's disappearance. With gain time he can get out months before June 2011 so he won't be in much longer. I hope he does something stupid without hurting anyone and he lands back behind bars right away after he gets out.

Victor Wonyetye's latest release date is listed as March 25, 2011. It will be sooner than that because of the way they credit time.

I was just thinking about this case the other day wondering if this child had been found or what the status was on the case. When Tammy disappeared I worked at Kingston Warren in the next community with parents of children who went to school with her and were neighbors to her the fear and outpouring was so upsetting that I had to just go home from work to make sure that my children were with me safe and sound even though we didn't live in that community. When something so awful happens it hurts everyone...
I just feel so bad for her parents because they just haven't had any answers and I just know that I wouldn't be able to go on not knowing where my child is or what has happened to one of them.
My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the family and friends that were effected by this sad case.

Hi, my name is Tammy also, in 1984 i was 13. i remember her because a man in manchester nh tryed to get me in his truck just days before she went missing. then on monday when i went to school her picture was everywere.
i always wonder if he was the same man, my mom nevr called police ( she was sick ) but ill never forget it. i was so scared and hid in the bushes near the granite st bridge. he begged, offered me money, earings, ( horshoe ) he said he had a poker game near dd's and needed to find his way. i kept telling him it was right there. but he wouldnt stop. he pulled out his wallet and showed me his money and offered half if i would j get in and show him. i was so scared and told him to let me cross the bridge then i would get in. he drove slow then when i got off bridge i ran. he drove back many times. he had a red pikup truk w a cap and was about 50.gray hair. i hav kids now and i would hav reported this if i was my mother. im so sorry for what happend to her . i could have been me. this may not have anything to do with her, but he deffinitly was out trying to get a young girl in his car. my only happieness is knowing he was so old hes probably dead now. i pray that my mom not reporting this did not affect anouther girl.

I can't believe that I just now came across this blog wow, very interesting information. It was me who posted on another site the possibility of Tammy being placed in a junk car that was to be scrapped. The reason I thought this was possible was because Victor worked at a garage and may have had access to a vehicle about to be junked or he would have had knowledge on what happened to junk cars once they were delivered to scrap yards.From what I read when he was blabbing to other inmates he was soooo sure she would never be found and I doublt if this scenario was even close that being found at this point would be a remote possibility. I am wondering if LE ever explored this as a possibility. I don't think it would be hard for them to find out through work records if they had any cars at all around that time that they brought to a junk yard. I could be way off base but it's all I've got!

In regard to this friend that I read about that was with Victor when he had Tammy, he sounds like a great lead and LE should do more to put the pressure on him.

I see that the updated release date for Victor is Jan of 2011 right around the corner. He will offend again of that I am sure. I would love it if there is anyone out there that could help me push to get some new publicity in this case. I am confident that Victor is involved with Tammy's dissappearance and more than enough time has passed, she deserves justice. He has bragged to inmates there may be a friend that was present, he has done this more than once and they cannot find something to stick it to this guy? I dont believe that. If anyone wants to talk please e mail ldannar77@yahoo.com thank you!

I am the mother of Joshua Murphy. When he was 4 years old we lived at 12 Auburn St.in Exeter NH.
The day prior to the Abduction of Tammy my neighbor was outside watching her daughter and my son. My neighbor noticed a car driving up and down Auburn St. watching the children riding their big wheels. My neighbor not very tall her self could see perfectly from beside her car the children as well as the driver who was going up and down the road. She was able to describe him and the car in the days that followed.
I only wish she had notified the police immediately or told me immediately so that I could have done so, she passed it off as just some lost creep. The day after Tammy disappeared the police visited us and took statements as to what anyone had seen, heard or noticed. It has effected us all of our lives and our son has grown up with the fear of this man. I hope that he does not come up for parole and that there is some way he can be held responsible. Exeter was a safe place to live back then until a monster of a man came into our town and took this precious girl from her family. We have never forgotten Tammy nor will we ever.

Times were different then where an event like that would probably be attributed to someone possibly lost driving around today it would raise red flags all over the place and hopefully LE would be called to check it out right away. When i was growing up I had no fear of walking to the bus stop alone or running around my neighborhood with friends just playing and being a kid. Today kids just cant do that anymore there are too many sickos that have invaded our neighborhoods and you never know when one is going to turn up. The whole thing just makes me so angry! We need tougher laws. These sex offenders should not have all the rights. In the case of Victor this sicko should never ever have been on the streets with the record that I have seen! And now in a few short months he will be back out again are you kidding me? Where are the laws to protect us and our children from having this man walk among us free? He has shown that he cannot be rehabilitated and he WILL reoffend. Also, he seems to bounce back and forth between Fl and NH I am quite sure NH has not seen the last of Victor. There is not much time left to come up with some sort of evidence that he was involved in Tammy's dissappearance, if something anything can be found on him we may be able to keep him behind bars and away from our children! If anyone at all can send me the name of this friend that was mentioned to have been with Victor with Tammy present please send me a private E mail at ldannar77@yahoo.com. To Joshua's mom thank you for sharing. You did not say in your post if the person that was seen in the car matches Victor or does the vehicle match? Also does anyone know what ever became of Victor's car from those days? Was anything preserved possibly that could now be looked at again with the advanced technoology that we now have? I have read that there were names of teen girls with messages all over his dash, was the dash removed from the car and preserved in case it was needed later? I am wondering if any of the names on there may be from missing girls or if that was ever looked into. If anyone wants to help me research this and help fight to keep this sex offender in jail please please E mail me I dont think I can do it alone!

Victor Wonyetye, the only suspect ever named in Tammy's disappearance, was released on 11/25/10 according to the Florida State Prison website. He was locked up there for the last 17.5 years. Hopefully he'll wind up back in jail soon before he hurts somebody else.

I am amazed at how many of us, who were about the same age as Tammy B at the time she was taken, still burn inside to know where she is. All very aware and very afraid with the feeling we could be next. I remember my sister a year younger then me, 8 at the time would not stand with me at our bus stop back then. We had a long driveway and she would stand by the house till the bus pulled up. We did not live in Exeter. We lived in Raymond. Word was everywhere about the little girl Tammy who had only lived about 25 min or so away. My sister and I both had brown hair, same age, lived by the water. To close to home so to speak. It dose not make any sense that she has never been found. How close to where she is could anyone have stood and never known she was there? A graveyard? I could see that if a person was so overwhelmed with guilt and was looking for a right place to bury a person. On the flip side however, it would be a huge risk of being seen. Police would likely take notice of someone at night and others would surly notice in the daytime. A junk car? I would not think that likely. All vehicles are linked to someone and that someone would be linked pretty easy, one way or another. It seems like the experts would have figured it out. A ton of people had ideas racing as to where she could have been or gone to. To take a child in the light of day? How planed was it? Some kind of plan must of gone into it somewhere along the line, after all the thought must have gone through the kidnappers head a million times before making such a daring move. I am sure these teams of police must have put together a profile on what likely kind of person would take a child. I pray they find the missing piece.

Victor Wonyetye already fits the profile. And he had the opportunity. There are still people living in the seacoast area who know him and have details of what he did while he was here in the time that Tammy disappeared. They may be afraid to speak now that he is out for fear of retribution. Or maybe they'll want to cash in somehow. Police need to get someone talking. They could get the info they need to break the case open and find Tammy and some loser could get immunity and could start over in the witness protection program.

It looks like Victor already got returned to prison. I just googled him and found the following website on the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office. Under charges, it said return following court order. Perhaps they've finally found evidence to link him to Tammy or to Christy Luna, the other girl he is suspected of murdering?

My daughter was thee same age as Tammy, and on a trip to Ames Dept store in Franklin NH my daughter said "Mommy they have a picture of me" I turned around to look and the photo of Tammy missing looked so much like my daughter it gave me chills.my child is grown now but Tammy has remained in my heart and prayers all these years. Last night I had a dream of her being found which is why I googled her this afternoon,my heart and prayers go out to her family and loved ones, I know she is in Gods embrace, but closure for the family would be a wonderful thing, my daughter now has children of her own and I constantly remind them all of Tammy missing and to be aware at all times of who is around as you just never know. I didn't know her or the family but seeing the likeness to my own has given her a special place in my life. I pray for all of those involved to use the knowledge you have of the case to bring closure to this family and to Tammy.

Amazing, a year and a half after the last time I checked here, and people still remember.

Just had a bit of odd deja vu today regarding Tammy. It's been 26 years, I am still effected by the loss of my classmate. And I was wrong, it wasn't English, it was Math. Ran into another person from my class who reminded me.

I still think of Tammy often, I had just found out I was pregnant with my 1st child when this happened. I used to wait on her father almost everyday at the bank I worked at. He seemed so kind and nice. This scared me so much it made me second guess my decision to have a child. I pray often for her family they never knew what happened

I was 13 years old when Tammy was abducted. I had just gotten home from school when my best friend called to tell me the awful news. I didn't believe it at first. I thought, "this type of thing doesn't happen here...I'm sure it's nothing, the little girl wandered off and will be found soon or maybe it's just an awful, untrue rumor". Then I started hearing helicopters over the woods which were across the street from my house. I lived in Stratham, just over the Exeter line. Now I'm about to turn 40 and I still think of Tammy and wonder what happened to her. I still can't believe something like this could happen in our quiet, "safe" community. I just pray that she will one day be found.

I did not know Tammy personally but lived in Newmarket at the time of her disappearance. I was 13 at the time and have never forgotten Tammy. I wish there was more being done on this cold case and I pray she is still alive some where, I can't imagine the pain her family has endured all these years of not knowing. Please know that we have not forgotten and continue to pray.

Wow! I'm almost in tears reliving that night my mom came home from teaching third grade at Lincoln St. It is one of those memories that is etched in my mind. I remember where I was when told. I remember that she didn't get home until after five that night. Everyone was questioned. My mom taught third grade in the classroom right next to Tammy's .I think Tammy's teacher was Mrs.Evans. Tammy never showed up for school but since there wasn't the policy that the parent's call a child in sick nobody knew until her parents came after school and was like where is Tammy? The school was like she never made it to school. They had already lost six hours from when Tammy was last seen walking to school.That night my mom took me and my two sisters for pizza and explained what had happened at school that day. She said that Tammy had never made it to school that day. She went over what we were supposed to do if a stranger ever tried to get us in the car, she gave us a code word to use if anyone was supposed to pick us up they had to tell us the code word. I remember she said that Adam Walsh's dad had come in to help out. I was a grade younger in school but was the same age as her. I read every newspaper article thinking someone just doesn't disappear. I remember that the exeter police at that time were stopping cars and asking everyone. I would take my friends for walks looking for her. I remember my mom telling me that they couldn't even remove Tammy's desk from the classroom because there was a cousin that it would upset. It changed my life forever. After Tammy disappeared and the other kids started disappearing Holly P, I think a Sarah,Molly Bish Elizabeth Smart. I remember asking my mom why she wasn't walking to school with someone or why she even had to walk to school. I've often wondered what happened to her family. How they are. It seemed strange that tips came in the day that would have been her bacalaurete from high school they were trudging the river or something. I think I remember an article that they stated they left her room the same just in case. There really isn't closure. I actually only found this blog because something on fb came up and it just struck me that maybe there was a fb group for Tammy. Nothing came up but this was the most recent thing. Kids just don't disappear and even as a kid I thought she was dead. All missing kids usually turned up dead until Elizabeth Smart now recently with the two in STL(which weirdly enough I was living in Kirkwood,MO when the first kid was missing)and the Casi Dugard it gave me hope but Tammy's disappearance is one of those events like the space shuttle blowing up, 911. I remember it all like it was yesterday. Changed everything for me in a flash. My mom told us with tears streaming down her face. I worry about her family.Wasn't it a white van they were looking for?I guess it shattered my innocence. In college Frashmen year we had to do a research report for fresh english. I chose missing children. Once the facts were all on cards I had everything memorized and it took me two hours to write that ten page research report. I didn't even have to look at the cards. I still want her family to have some type of closure something. Why has the family chosen to remain so quiet about it all?It was in the papers a lot and her picture was everywhere then it would be just on the anniversary dates. Now nothing. The only good that come of this was that is why if a child isn't in school and the parent doesn't call the school by a certain time the nurse/sec will call the house to make sure the child is at home. So parents please don't forget to call your child in when they are sick if that rule had been in place the year Tammy was in third grade the police could have gotten hours ahead then they did. FB group to honor Tammy anyone want to take that one on?

My name is Christopher, and I lived in the mobile home Park on the other side of Hampton Rd from the Belangers. I was one month from my fifth birthday when Tammy's disappearance shocked us all to the core. I vaguely remember Tammy in person, but I will never forget the image of her in that poster. I have never been able to put this from my mind, and truly hope her family one day gets the justice they deserve. I fondly remember Ben and Becky, and though I haven't seen them in years, they have never been far from my thoughts. I have always hoped that she would be found alive, and still hope... But it seems as though Victor Wonyetye has admitted to killing her. If this is the case, than God have mercy on his soul, because if it can ever be proven, no judge or jury with a conscience could be merciful.

Does anyone have any information on what new charge Vic is being held on? Looks like he was arrested again at the end of February and 1 site I saw listed a probation violation but that is all that I see there.

Vic is getting quite old and doesn't look to be in the best of health. I am hopeful that a new spark can ignite in Tammy's case and that we will one day be able to find out exactly what happened.

I am still very interested in this person mentioned that was riding around with Victor that has been mentioned on this blog. If anyone wants to discuss my E mail is ldannar77@4funding.com

Anybody out there remember anything about the guy known as REB - REBBIE? He must have a real name. He's not a one name celebity like Cher or Bono or Tiger. He's a lifetime loser. He's the guy who was friends with and cruising around with Wonyetye at the time of Tammy's disappearance. REB - REBBIE told people he knows what happened and where Tammy is. Someone told me REB is still around the general area but maybe in Mass. ??? If U know anything say something. It's the right thing to do.

Go to the link below if you want to see a recent picture of Wonyetye. He's starting to look like a tired little old man. But only God knows what he would do if he ever got out. I hope he lives long enough to be exposed and held accountable for all of his terrible crimes.

I was student teaching at Exeter Elementary School when Tammy Belanger went missing. I remember the dread I felt when my supervising teacher said there was a parent in the office asking about her missing daughter. Later, when that vile subhuman Wonyetye was a suspect, an Exeter police officer told my father that they thought he was involved due to some very suspicious behavior but they couldn't uncover enough evidence
to bring him to trial. That suspicious behavior included something that chilled me so much that I still remember it all these years later. Wonyetye had purposefully removed the inside door handle on the passenger side of his car.

Fall always reminds me of this travesty. This case is intriguing I wish I knew more of the known details - i tmight just be a matter of the right person makign the right connection by thinking "outside the box" so to speak. Unfortunately the same restrictions maintained to ensure the validity of sources and protect the case from weasels using technicalities in trials, also could be keeping it from being solved by limiting the pool of minds that can assess it. Very sad, I knew her brother back then and check back here at least once a year to see if anything has changed.

Does anyone know of a source for more information (if any is publicly available)

When you think about the specification of the phrase enjoy, with relation to its a captivating marriage using one more, but as a emotion that is certainly engendered for those who have miltchmonkey the best partnership on your own much too : or perhaps like a a sense larger unity with your family or perhaps humanity ( space ) then it gets to be a lot more really clear that each anybody wants in your daily course is really like.

I just looked up Victor Wonyetye at the FL sexual offenders website, which someone earlier gave the link to, and it said something I did not want to see - Status: Deceased. While we apparently do not have to worry about his reoffending anymore, it is sad that the opportunity to get Victor to confess is lost forever. Our only hope may be that REB - REBBIE comes forward and tells what he knows. Hopefully now that Victor is gone, he will find less a reason to keep it a secret.

I remember this abduction. I had just gotten out of the Navy and was living in Exeter and worked at a gas station that just happened to be owned by Tammy's uncle.
I was wondering what ever came of this case and happened onto this blog when I googled it.
I was praying that this case had not gone cold, but I see that I am wrong.
My heart goes out to the family. It seems that the ball was dropped badly on this one and I pray that one day whoever did this is found out and that some sort of closure is possible.
Come on people, I watch a LOT of crime T.V. and there have been a lot crimes solved on a lot less after being cold a lot longer! There HAS to be SOMETHING that was missed!

We just moved to NH from CT. This story breaks my heart. I cannot beleive that the Exeter police have not talked with this Rebbie again. He knows something. My daughter and I feel Tammy is on Pickpocket Road somewhere. My daughter has been "gifted" since she was young and said she has always felt un-easy when we drive on that road. I beleive she is in the woods and not in water. I also believe that if everyone came together and put their heads together, we could solve this case.

Have any searches been conducted in the area of Pickpocket road that anyone knows of? Who knows, it's worth a shot! With Vic known to travel between NH and FL Tammy could really be anywhere but I have a feeling REB may hold the key here. I read a newer article that says that LE is hopeful that people will now come forward after Vic's death but I really don't feel that lead will just fall in their lap. This Rebbie guy would probably fear some sort of charges himself for not telling what he knows all these years. If he was interviewed and withheld information for example.

With Vic passing on maybe it's time for LE to go to him again

I agree. Very strange, someone I know keeps saying they feel she is at Cross Road off pick pocket road. When we drove by the other day, a guy was sitting there in a jeep, licence plate 6556 RF from MA. He was facing the dam, just sitting there. He looked very upset....like he had been crying. He was about 50 years old. Could this be Rebbie with licence plate RF? The thing with Rebbie is he could easily drop an Anonymous tip to police on where she is and they could not prove it was him. How can he live with himself all these years. Does anyone know what Rebbie's last name is?

 
At 8/08/2013 06:50:00 PM, Anonymous LMD said...

I tried to find out more about Rebbie but I didn't get anywhere. It seems like a nickname to me. It has been mentioned here that he is now in MA and the car you saw had MA plates. What else if anything is known about this guy? What I hear is he was friends with Vic and went out riding a lot with him and most likely has information on what happened to Tammy. I have read that he may have even been there with Vic on the day Tammy was abducted. I am really hoping that LE takes that extra step to talk with him again

Does anyone at all know if that area was searched at the time she went missing or at all after? With all this time passing it would be hard to locate anything just with a ground search but what about someone taking a dog out there??

A name like MrsBelanger would indicate that this person is married, and Tammy disappeared long before her eventual marriage would have even been thought about. It has been a few months since I checked this blog, but it is interesting to see the locations being discussed, and the older man in the jeep. It seems inconclusive that this was Rebbie, but that was a good point on the anonymous tip. Rebbie needs to be questioned again, and possibly offered immunity depending on what his role was. Someone else on here said that Rebbie was with Victor when he had Tammy in the car, so he could definite bring closure to this case, and I doubt Tammy's family is asking anything beyond the closure they deserve. It may be too late to find out about the other girl Victor is accused of kidnapping, but as long as Rebbie remains alive, there is hope for closure in Tammy's case, and I along with everyone else would like to see her family receive that closure.

If Tammy'sangel still visits this blog, here is the answer to your question regarding the picture Wonyetye had at his house. It was not a picture of Tammy, but rather one of a girl who looked a great deal like her, to the point that law enforcement at first believed the picture was one of her. One thing that has always gotten me is the fact that the police found trace amounts of cat hair in his belongings. Just under 6 months earlier a girl the same age as Tammy also disappeared, and she was always covered with cat hair. Wonyetye happened to be living in the area where that girl lived. That seems to be the only evidence that was ever found to link him to her disappearance, and investigators were looking into the possibility that the cat hair came off one of that girl's cats, but it doesn't seem like any such investigation was ever done. If it was, I have seen no record of it. What is known is that Wonyetye confessed to 8 to 12 inmates that he raped, strangled and killed two 8-year-old girls, according to a newspaper article printed in 1992. If I were the father of either Tammy or the other girl Wonyetye is accused of kidnapping, I would try to find out who these inmates were and ask them if they could remember what Wonyetye told them. If they could remember that far back, at least it would bring me closure. It seems Wonyetye made this confession while he was in Florida, and the article mentions the other girl in its headline with the words Greenacres girl. We will never know with certainty what happened to her, unless one of those inmates comes forward and tells what Wonyetye told them, but the friend who rode around with him in NH, if he is still alive, could make the difference in Tammy's case that her family sorely needs. If I were working with Exeter law enforcement, I would call this friend of Wonyetye's up and offer him immunity for telling what he knows. 31 years is plenty long enough for this family to be without closure.

 
At 8/14/2015 12:31:00 AM, Anonymous ThunderFist said...

My mistake. Wonyetye made the confession in New Hampshire, and they said that 3 or 4 of the inmates' statements were consistent. This comes from an article dated May 14, 1992 in the Sun Journal in Florida.
