The FBI is offering a $50,000 reward for anyone with information that can solve the 20-year-old murder of Iowa college student Tammy Zywicki.

Zywicki left Evanston, Illinois on August 23, 1992 for Grinnell College where she was set to begin classes.  Later that day, an Illinois State Trooper found her car and ticketed it as being abandoned.

On August 24, 1992, Zywicki's mother called police to report that her daughter had not arrived in Grinnell.

On September 1, 1992, Zywicki's body was found along I-44 in rural Lawrence County, Missouri.  She had been sexually assaulted and stabbed to death.

Several people, including two truckers, have been questioned in the case, but no arrests have ever been made.  One of those truckers, Lonnie Bierbodt, died in June of 2002.

The Chicago office of the Federal Bureau of Investigations has announced a new $50,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of the person who killed Tammy Zywicki.  If you have any information, please call your local FBI office.
