Tamyra Borden was a teenage girl who was murdered by Elliot Leopold after she had run away from her abusive father and fell in with a neo-Nazi cult.

History[]

After Tamyra's father lost his job, he started to abuse her. Despite Tamyra testifying to the abuse, she lost her case for emancipation. On the day she testified, she met Truitt "Spider" Leland, who flirted with her. When Tamyra lost and he got out of jail, Spider came to get her. He took her to his home with his mother, Rayanne Leland, and another wayward teen named Elliot Leopold. Once there, Tamyra learned that Spider was a neo-Nazi and whilst unsure of the beliefs, she was there to witness the murder of Nora Mariposa along with Elliot, Spider, and Lindsay Port.

As a result, Tamyra wanted out and at first was helped by Elliot. However, he was then manipulated by Rayanne into going after her, so he ended up bashing Tamyra's head several times with a hammer.
