Linda Twyman Murder - Update
The brutal murder of Evanston single mom Linda Twyman remains unsolved. Her friends and neighbors have not forgotten her, however. This is a "cold case" for the Evanston Police, but the case is still being actively pursued. The Evanston chief of police Richard Eddington granted an interview on Evanston's murders (solved and unsolved) to the local community newspaper, the Evanston RoundTable. here is a "snip" of the article in the paper that dealt with Linda:
The 2005 murder of Linda Twyman remains unsolved, said Chief Eddington, though “we continue to work the case [and] there is a person of interest” whom the police are pursuing. It is “not anybody on the public radar,” he said. The person of interest is currently in prison and “not going anywhere,” said the Chief. He added the case is “a tough one, but there is some hope that we’ll eventually prosecute” someone for Ms. Twyman’s murder.
This is not very edifying, but it is the first public police comment on Linda Twyman's murder in a long time. It is important to Linda's memory to find and bring justice to the perpetrator of this atrocity.
