Family of Tiffanie Adams speaks out about daughter’s murder

SULLIVAN COUNTY., Ind. (WTHI) – Months of searching has come to a tragic end.

Indiana State Police confirmed it was the body of missing 20-year-old Tiffanie Adams’ found on Dec. 30 in Sullivan County.

Her death has been ruled a homicide.

Caring and adored that’s how Christina Orr described the person most precious to her.

“She was just the sweetest girl,” said Christina Orr, Tiffanies’ Mother, as she fought back tears.

Left with only broken hearts and unanswered questions, Orr recalls the night her daughter, Tiffanie was reported missing.

“That’s the story I got, that she left out his front door and was coming to see me,” said Orr.

Even though the walk from her father Bruce Adams’ house to her mother and stepfather’s was a short one, only a block away, Tiffanie would never make it.

Orr said what happened between that time, or if Tiffanie even planned on walking to their house at all is still a mystery.

“I couldn’t understand why I didn’t see her on my Birthday, Thanksgiving, or Christmas.”

Those closest to Tiffanie held out hope for the New Year because that’s the day Tiffanies’ first son was due.

“And I knew she would end up having to go to the hospital to have the baby,” said Orr.

On Dec. 30, after more than a month of searching, a farmer found a body in a nearby cornfield just northeast of Sullivan.

Using dental records police were able to confirm the body was that of Tiffanie Adams.

“I didn’t believe it, and I’m still having a hard time believing it,” said Brian Orr, Tiffanies Stepfather.

Now they want nothing more than to find the person responsible for the murder of their daughter and their unborn grandson.

“Whoever is out there that did it, you will get caught,” said Brian.

“I can’t even imagine that person being a person,” added Christina.

The cause of death has not been released.
