Like many other cases here on Our Black Girls, there isn’t much known about Tammy Jarvis or the circumstances leading up to her disappearance. There aren’t many news reports about the 20-year-old, but what has been shared suggests she met with foul play. In May 1989, Tammy was reportedly living with her aunt in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. It was on May 10 when neighbors told authorities they last saw Tammy being dragged into the backyard by her boyfriend who was allegedly holding a shotgun at the time. He hasn’t been named in reports.
Sadly, no one has seen or heard from Tammy Jarvis since. Reports state that the aforementioned boyfriend has never been charged with any crime in connection with the young mother’s disappearance, but three years later in 1992, he was arrested and convicted of second-degree murder. He reportedly killed his then-girlfriend and has been in prison ever since. The extent of the investigation into Tammy’s boyfriend is unclear.
At the time of her disappearance, Tammy Jarvis stood 5 feet inches tall and weighed 150 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair and brown eyes. There hasn’t been information shared regarding what she may have been wearing the last time she was seen, nor are there any details regarding distinguishing marks, scars, tattoos, or the like. She would be 51-years-old at the time of this publication. Her middle name is “Ann.” According to The Doe Network, Tammy’s fingerprints and DNA are not available.
Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to contact the Baton Rouge City Police Department at 225-389-8617 or 225-389-3844, or their local authorities. Her Agency Case Number is 28116-89.
Please share this story about Tammy Jarvis to help bring closure to this case. She is our sister and her life matters.
