True Crime All The Time Unsolved
The Buck Family and Linda Dearth Murders
In January 1973, in the span of fewer than two weeks, four murders rocked two normally peaceful townships north of Dayton, Ohio. Three members of the Buck family were murdered in their home. And then just 13 days later, 13-year-old Linda Dearth was murdered in her home on a day off from school.
Join Mike and Gibby as they discuss the details of these brutal murders. Police quickly zeroed in the Buck family's 17-year-old babysitter for their murders. But, most involved questioned that possibility, especially after Linda's murder was connected to the murder of the Buck family. The babysitter had already been detained by the time Linda was murdered. Did police handle these investigations correctly? Or, did they get tunnel vision and try to make the puzzle pieces fit to try a 17-year-old girl for murder?
