What Happened to Jeanette Tambe? Buena Vista, New Jersey, 1986 (Publicker Jane Doe: Part 2)
On August 8, 1986, a couple drove from Philadelphia to Buena Vista, New Jersey to check on a home they were building. They pulled into the driveway, walked around the property, and found something horrible: the mangled body of a woman, wrists shackled, in the blood soaked yard.
This story started in the last episode, "What Happened to Publicker Jane Doe?" When Bensalem Police Detective Chris McMullin was trying to find the identity of the murder victim known only as Publicker Jane Doe, one of the leads he followed was the disappearance of a young woman named Jeanette Tambe. After a lot of boots on the ground police work and DNA analysis, he found something he wasn't expecting, and ended up helping to unravel another mystery that had gone unsolved for decades.
