MP of the week: Linda Evans Lunsford

This week’s featured missing person is Linda Evans Lunsford, who disappeared from Virginia the day after Christmas in 1996. She was 38 years old, with five children, whom she supported by working three jobs.

Lunsford’s family and the cops believe her former boyfriend, who was a coworker, may have been involved in her disappearance. According to this article,

After Lunsford’s disappearance, a search warrant of her former boyfriend’s home turned up nothing. Police found out he’d purchased trash can, lighter fluid and duct tape using his credit card just days before Lunsford went missing. “But he couldn’t produce these,” said Rose. Although police suspect Lunsford met with foul play and her ex-boyfriend could be somehow involved, there has never been enough evidence to link anyone to the crime.

I haven’t found any news on the case since 2012. Linda’s kids are grown now, of course, and have produced quite a lot of offspring themselves, who have never met their grandmother.
