Linda Younger

CASE DATE:
June 27, 1986

LOCATION:
1900 San Diego Avenue

SYNOPSIS:

Linda Younger worked as a cab driver for Yellow Cab. On June 27, 1986, shortly after midnight, a supervisor for the Yellow Cab Company responded to an address in Old Town to check a citizen's complaint of an unattended cab parked at the curb with its lights shining into a window. The supervisor arrived there and found Younger, who had been shot to death while sitting in the front seat of her cab. The motive for the shooting was presumed to be either robbery or attempted robbery. Detectives noted that Younger was shot while sitting in the front passenger seat of her cab, not in the driver's seat where she would normally sit to operate the cab. This case may be related to the murder of cab driver Sharyn Kamrath which occurred one month later on July 29, 1986.
