This is the first episode in Season 3 of Break the Case.
Listen to Episode 01:
In the fall of 2022, the AMU Cold Case Investigative Team started seeking out a case for our next investigation. We publicized a case submission form, asking people to submit unsolved murders to us for consideration. We received dozens of submissions and spent weeks conducting preliminary research on each of them.
One case kept rising to the top of the pile. It was the 2008 murder of Linda Malcom, a Navy veteran who had been stabbed in her home, which was then set on fire. No arrests had ever been made and the case seemingly went cold after a couple of years.
Linda’s case was submitted to us by her nephew, Mike Booker, who also happened to be an AMU student. The circumstances surrounding Linda’s murder intrigued our lead investigators, Jennifer Bucholtz and George Jared, who decided to reach out to the family.
In this first episode, follow the team’s initial steps into this investigation and listen to their first conversation with Mike Booker and his mom, Cindy Booker, Linda’s sister.
Hear from Jen and George, along with our new investigator, Melissa Sandberg, as they learn more about Linda, her lifestyle, and the circumstances of her murder. Will AMU’s Cold Case Team successfully help law enforcement “Break the Case” for Linda Malcom’s family?
