File Number: 104200075

Vancouver, British Columbia: The Hemlock Valley Murders - Three murder victims were discovered in East Vancouver in 1995, Tammy Pipe, Tracy Olajide and Victoria Younker. The women were all prostitutes that had worked in the same area of Vancouver, BC. As well, they had all been murdered the same way and left in the same area. Quickly the police realized they were looking for one serial killer and believed it was Ronald Richard McCauley.

The suspect had a history of assaulting and attacking prostitutes and had previously served time in jail for rape and attempted murder. While he was indefinitely jailed, police still couldn't fully prove it was McCauley.

By 2001, police tested DNA samples that had been collected in 1995 and discovered that they did not match Ronald McCauley. Since then there have been no other suspects.

Tammy Pipe

File Number: 104200170

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.
