Justice for Linda Edwards

It has been 36 years since Linda Edwards, a deputy with the Garland County Sheriff’s department, was brutally murdered. Her murderer remains free; and part of the reason is due to most of the evidence having been ruled as circumstantial or hearsay.

One of the primary reasons for the hearsay rule was the fact there wasn’t any medical record to corroborate witness statements regarding the paternity of her unborn child.

Linda Edwards’s remains are buried in a concrete vault. We are asking to have the body exhumed and tested for DNA and hope a positive match occurs whereby this case can receive the fair trial denied in the 70’s.

Exhumation paperwork was signed in 2004 - we're still waiting. It’s not too late for Linda Edwards to receive the justice she and her unborn child deserve. For more information please visit
