Tammy Zywicki

Tammy Zywicki was only 21
The last time she saw the setting sun
I cannot imagine the pain in her eyes
Not knowing if the next day she'd still be alive.

You see, she dropped off her brother at school in Illinois
Before proceeding to drive herself to school in Iowa
When her car broke down in Interstate 80
Won't someone stop and help a young lady?

Unfortunately, this beautiful young woman
Wouldn't make it to Grinnel College
Which is where she was going.

Someone unfortunatley did pick her up
Near Utica Illinois, where her car had given up
It was August 23rd, 1992, and a man in a semi
Took her with him.

They stopped at a truck stop in Peru Illinois
Then went on their way...

And he took her to Hell.

On September 1st, 1992, her body was found
Along state hwy 44, in rural Lawrence Co. Missouri.
She was wrapped in a blanket.
She had been stabbed to death.

I'll never understand how someone could bring harm
To a nice young lady
To prey on the innocent
To commit a crime so heinous
It's completely despicable.

After 17 years, her murder remains unsolved
17 years of no peace for her family
Or for her mother's broken heart.

The only thing of which I am certain
Is that Tammy herself is no longer hurting
For when this young woman breathed her last breath
Flights of Angels, winged her to rest.

I was intrigued by the beginning so I opened to read. What a story! I love the ending. Flights of Angels, winged her to rest. Why are there evil people in this world? I like it and I think this is nonfiction so I shall pray for her soul. Even though it happened in the past, it is never to late. Caryn on the Rhine

Her killer was never caught, but a VERY strong suspect died before he could be questioned, he was in prison for another murder.

excellent in the telling of a tragic occurance. The last few lines of hope were a gift. The reassurance of her being with angels. well done.-tonya

Poetry is what gets lost in translation.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
