On July 4th 2007, a horrifying incident unfolded when a 12-year-old girl was abducted from outside her own home in Tacoma, WA. The relentless efforts of the police led them through a maze of leads, gradually narrowing down their search until they finally identified the prime suspect. As the realization sank in that yet another young girl in Tacoma went missing, the city was gripped with fear, worrying that she might be lost forever. However, the discovery of her remains brought no solace, it only brought more anguish as subsequent failures in the justice system came to light as the investigation went on. In today's episode, we delve into the heart-wrenching case of Zina Linnik and shed light on how the capture of her murderer ultimately led to the closure of multiple cases.
