Linda Louise Malcom

Port Orchard, Washington

In the early morning hours of April 30, 2008, the body of Linda Louise Malcom was discovered in the charred remains of her home located in the 1100 block of Sidney Avenue.

Her body was burned beyond recognition. An autopsy revealed multiple stab wounds. Investigators believe the home was set on file to conceal the crime. 

Detectives have indicated they have a person of interest in the case, but have never named a suspect and no arrests have been made. 

AMU's Volunteer Cold Case Investigative Team, lead by advisors Jennifer Bucholtz and George Jared have taken on Linda's case in hopes of finding answers and getting Linda the justice she deserves. Read more about the team below.
