The premiere episode of PEOPLE MAGAZINE INVESTIGATES delves into the mysterious disappearance of college student Tammy Zywicki. In 1992, Tammy vanishes after her car breaks down on the highway. Family and friends scramble to find her, and have a semblance of hope when multiple witness accounts of Tammy on the side of the highway flood in. But those hopes are dashed when investigators discover the sinister truth. Police struggle with dead-end leads and suspects who don’t pan out, but the case is revitalized when DNA technology and new evidence sheds light on what happened decades later.
