Don did say that Linda got home late (around 3 in the morning and that they argued for over an hour). I could see how after an argument she would have slept on the couch. Since she got home late, I could also see why she would have still been sleeping when her daughter went to school.

I have my suspicions about the guy, but honestly, I'd be lying if I said that my impression of him wasn't tainted by the casual manner in which he conducted himself during the UM interview. It was so unfeeling.

I guess you could argue that he had an icy demeanor because he thought Linda ran off with another man and abandoned him and his daughter, and that he thought that her lover or someone else was responsible for her death while everyone else in the town thought he was the one who did it.

This was a good Riverfront Times article about Linda's case that came out years ago: http://www.riverfronttimes.com/1999-...y-of-evidence/

While there were several separations and reconciliations, Linda had always taken her daughter with her when she had left Don on previous occasions. She was already mailing her paychecks to her sister's home; there wasn't any credible reason for her to be hiding in a van from Don.

The coworker that Don believed that Linda was seeing had an alibi and was ruled out as a suspect. The RT article notes that one of Don's ex girlfriends stated that Don had confessed to the murder, but at the time the investigator wouldn't discuss that information.

We all have different takes on it, and it seems bizarre that someone would deliberately plant a skull at a restaurant that they were known to patronize, but it's also just as unlikely that a unknown perpetrator would have enough knowledge about Don's comings and goings 5 years later so as to place the skull there, and to then send a flier from the same place to police about the skull being Linda's.

Thanks for posting that link! Some questions I have about it though, the article has Linda's daughter saying she has a "dream" about going to school and seeing her mom asleep on the couch and her not waking up to kiss her goodbye. Is this a real memory of hers, or simply a dream? And Don Sherman does seem pretty cold in the interview, especially the way he told his daughter when they found Linda's remains. But at the end of the article, I thought it was interesting that Don still had he and Linda's wedding album easily accessible and brought it out for the reporters and was showing them pictures and reminiscing about the wedding. I know it's not an indicator of guilt or innocence, but I would think if Don wanted her dead and killed her, the last thing he would have kept around would have been their wedding album.

I'd bet a nickel the rest of her is in Leonard Rizzo's back yard...

I default assume the spouse always does it, unless there is a good reason to assume otherwise, as that overwhelmingly is the case for most murders.
This seems a classic UM case: wife mysteriously disappears, history of domestic violence, totally out of character for them to disappear. It's very hard to look past him doing it.
Ultimately this is the OJ question. If the husband didn't do it then who the hell did?

Whoever put Linda's skull at the restaurant had to go find her remains (wherever they were being kept) and deliberately dig up only the skull to then plant it at the restaurant where Don frequented. I just get the vibe that this was done as more of a threat (or to frame) Don, rather than Don planting it solely so he could prove that Linda was dead to get remarried.

I wonder if Don could have killed her and then called in a favor from someone to help him dispose of the body. A close friend at the time perhaps that he paid or promised to pay at some point for helping. Years later a falling out could have occurred at which point the friend decided “okay, fine. I’m turning your ass in”. What can Don do at that point except just deny it? If he killed her himself, he would have no leverage on someone that helped dispose of the body.

This person would then know where to find the skull and likely where Don hangs out regularly. After some time has passed, the police haven’t made the connection, so the friend tips off the police as to it being Linda’s skull.

I'm curious if there is still an active investigation. Was Don Sherman (who is now dead) the only person considered a suspect?

Fair question. I always assumed that Don was the killer. I find the theory that he had help disposing her body and that the skull was left as a threat to Don just fascinating. Never thought of that angle.
