Tammy Pipe - One of The Victims of The Hemlock Valley Murders


Tammy Pipe

Tammy Pipe

Agassiz, British Columbia — The murder of Tammy Pipe, 24, is considered one of three murders in a series called The Hemlock Valley Murders. Tammy, Tracy Olajide and Victoria Younker were all sexually assaulted, killed by strangulation and their bodies were left in a similar fashion in remote areas of Fraser Valley in 1995.

Tammy was last seen on Tuesday, August 29, 1995, at the Cobalt Hotel on Main Street in Vancouver.


Tammy's body was found in a remote, wooded area near Agassiz, British Columbia on September 2nd, 1995. She was left in the middle of a side road North of Lougheed Highway #7, leading to a hang-glider launch area of Mount Woodside and no attempt was made to conceal her body.

A fleck of red vehicle paint was found at the scene and is believed to be connected to the killer. The terrain was rough and would have been difficult for the average vehicle to manage.

Yellow flecks were also found at the scene and authorities were unable to identify their source.

Tammy dreamed of being a dancer and what she regarded as "interpretive dance routines" were seen by others as "stripping". She was known to be charitable in the area of the Patricia Hotel on Hastings Street and Victoria Drive and Franklin Street where she worked in the sex trade to support her cocaine habit.

When serial killer Robert Pickton was arrested in 2002, authorities initially believed he was also responsible for Tammy's death but no sign of her, Tracy, or Victoria were found on his pig farm. Police believe a separate, unconnected serial killer is still on the loose.

Authorities possess a DNA sample of the killer for future comparison.

If you have any information regarding the murder of Tammy Pipe, you are encouraged to contact the RCMP Missing Women Taskforce at 1-877-687-3377.

People see some homeless people in Downtown Vancouver and think it's this super dangerous place, but then forget that the other 99.9% of the people are law abiding citizens. On a per capita basis many smaller places are much more dangerous.
