Nineteen-year-old Tammy Haas disappeared after attending Yankton’s homecoming and then going to a party on a farm just across the Nebraska border. Her case is among South Dakota’s most notorious unsolved mysteries.

Haas’ body was found by a golfer in Cedar County, Nebraska at the bottom of a ravine. In 1996, Haas’ boyfriend Eric Stukel was tried and acquitted of manslaughter in her death.
