Skeleton found, could be Christine Markey or Tammy Mahoney

Authorities stated they’d found skeleton along Cowalson Creek in Oneida, New York. It should be relatively easy to identify because it’s a complete skeleton and the teeth are intact. So far they are thinking it’s either Christine Markey, a 22-year-old missing from Oneida since 1993, or Tammy Mahoney, 19, missing from Oneida since 1981. (I should add that Oneida is a pretty small town, population about 10,000. I’m surprised that two young girls are missing from a town that size. They don’t appear to be connected though.)

Normally I don’t post about found dead bodies, but I just had to do it this time, because of a comment on this article. Investigators believe Tammy Mahoney was gang-raped and murdered by some Oneida Indians from the reservation. There were supposedly loads of witnesses, but they are electing not to prosecute until her body is recovered. Anyway, someone said, If these are in fact Miss Mahoney’s remains, it proves she was never on our reservation. No one would drive way out to Canal Rd. to dispose of them.

    I honestly hope it is Tammy so this can get on a be prosecuted already. Though I think it is Christine an unknown. And whoever made that dumb @@#$% comment should really think about it. It just goes to show that you can have keyboard and NO common sense.

    According to recent news reports, the remains are of a male aged 26 to 50. Therefore, it is neither Tammy Mahoney or Christine Markey.

    The remains have been identified as Mark C Murray of Syracuse.

    I really hope that they could put this case to rest. Tammy was a good friend of mine and I hope when they find all the people (animals) who did this to her, that this person will have to go to jail for life and suffer.
