Part 3. On January 26, 1994, 17-year-old Tami Renee Jackson’s body is discovered. Port Authority workers on Hutchinson Island, near Savannah, Georgia, find Tami; she has been stabbed more than 130 times, is bound, and has been run over by a vehicle. Investigators process evidence at the scene and conduct interviews with potential witnesses, but eventually, the case goes cold.
In this episode of Zone 7, Crime Scene Investigator, Sheryl McCollum, recaps Tami’s cold case with Stacy Patterson, sister of Tami Jackson. Stacy discusses how her emotions and grief process around getting the phone call that Tami was pronounced dead by murder. Sheryl explains how new technology makes this case solvable and educates the listeners on types of tools that could be used to catch the murderer(s?)
