31 years later, Thorpe murder probe ongoing

Passersby found Tammy Lynn Thorpe’s body on Oct. 23, 1988.
Thirty-one years later, the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office continues to work on solving the murder of a young Warrenton woman.

The sheriff’s office issued this press release Wednesday afternoon:

On October 23, 1988, the body of Tammy Thorpe was discovered by passersby on the northbound side of Route 17 just north of Warrenton.

Tammy had been shot in the face; her car was later recovered in the Warrenton Plaza parking lot on Broadview Avenue in Warrenton.

Even now, 31 years later, detectives currently working with the Commonwealth’s Attorney's Office in evaluating evidence in this unsolved murder and submitting evidence for analysis to the Virginia Department of Forensic Science.
Anyone with any information is urged to contact the sheriff’s office at 540-347-3300. We are still working to bring closure to this family and to this community.
