Default Linda Sherman

the talk about the rizzo case made me think about linda sherman, who met a similar fate, 'cept her cranium was found by a restaraunt.
also another case where the husband is obviously guilty!
it makes me sick to see such a pretty lady like her come to such an end!
anybody heard anything about this case recently?

Yeah that case is reminescent of the Monica Rizzo case.

I thought the hubby seemed to know something that he wasn't telling...

That's what I like about UM; it interviewed some people that could be considered suspect more often than AMW does (another show I enjoy).

I wonder if any updates were done on that case. I wonder if the daughter still has any contact w/her father since then??

Yeah, I think that in both cases the people tipping the cops off are the husbands. What losers!!

so i guess it is safe to assume they never found out who placed the skull at the restaraunt?

i remember from the segment that her daughter mentioned she never got up from the couch from where she was sleeping while she was walking out the door to school.
my belief is her husband killed her during the night, instead of her running off with another man and meeting with foul play, as he claims was the case.

I also think the husband did it. The fact that the daughter seen her mother "sleeping" on the couch that morning and her father uncharacteristically taking her to school. Also I remember they speculated that the skull was placed there (in a restaurant frequented often by the husband) as a means to prove that Linda was dead so her husband could remarry. It makes sense in a morbid sort of way.

so the husband has never been charged with anything?
has her family said anything besides what her daughter said?

I haven't heard of any updates about any arrests. Here is her UM profile:

http://www.unsolved.com/0101-LindaSherman.html

You know I had forgotten about the letter that was sent to the police telling them whose skull it was. Just makes the husband seem even more guilty. He definitely must have wanted police to know that she was dead for whatever reason.

it almost seems like somebody else did it because it was left in the bushes just outside her husband's favorite restaraunt.
but due to the other stuff though of course i think he is guilty.

My gut what happened is that he hit her and she fell and hit her head against something and died. No most normal people would report the accident, but since this POS thought he would be charged with murder he hid the body.

Normally, I would think that no one could do this, but given the updates in the April Gregory disappearance, I think you could be onto something... but then again, the husband may just have wanted her out of the way so he could remarry, like CD suggested...

If so, then he has got to be one of the most 'composed' wife-killers I've ever seen......much more so than that Rizzo guy.......

I really felt he loved Linda way to much and was way to jealous. The way he might have reacted if he hid the body was to protect himself and the skull just happen to appear when he wanted to get remarried. My guess is that is what happened because the daughter was awake during part of the spat and if he murdered her she would have heard a lot of screaming and things out of place, which leads me to belive he threw a punch or hit her and she fell and broke her neck or hit her head.

The guy is a sick loser but does not seem as sick and twisted as Rizzo's husband. I mean that guy hid his wives bones in the BBQ for cooking to get flavor from.

I just re-watched this segment on my "Bizarre Murders DVDs." It seems pretty obvious to me the poor woman was dead in the morning when he took the girl to school, and that he disposed of her body and moved her car to the airport some time during the day. After that morning when the kid saw her briefly, nobody other than the husband claims to have seen her alive. I'll grant he was one cool customer in the interviews, but it was 15 years ago --- by now he may have managed to convince himself he didn't do it.
