Cold Case Files : The Kidnapping & Murder of 10 Year Old Linda Weldy--Indiana

Is Linda Weldy a Victim of a Serial Killer ?


Linda Weldy's family thinks a serial killer is to blame for her kidnapping & murder...


On 2-24-1987 10 year old Linda Weldy was dropped off by her school bus near her home on McClung Road in LaPorte Indiana..The bus driver & other children saw Linda Weldy walk to the family mailbox like she did everyday..


The 10 year old had to walk about 250 yards down the curved gravel driveway to her home which some areas had a limited view because of trees along the driveway..


10 year old Linda Weldy never made it home..


On 3-17-1987 Linda's body was found by a farmer along some abandoned railroad tracks on County Road 500 South near Kingsbury Indiana..


10 year old Linda Weldy had been strangled...


Alot has been said about Serial Killer Larry D Hall as the one who Abducted & Murdered Linda Weldy...


But there was another Serial Killer operating in the same area in 1987..


1980's Child Serial Killer David E Penton...


Penton traveled between Texas & Ohio several times taking different routes from 1983 to 1988..


Penton was caught in 1988 in Ohio for Kidnapping & Murdering 9 Year old Nydra Ross..


One of Penton's favorite routes entering Indiana was the 80 & 90 Turnpike exiting onto the South Bend exit... 


In 2006 Mja was given Info about 2 Indiana cases by a former cell-mate of Penton's...


One case was a1986 Abduction of a 6 year old female who hasnt been found..


The other case was a 1987 Abduction & Murder of 10 year old female thats never been solved..


During our research the 1987 Linda Weldy case is one of the cases we been looking at as being a possible Victim of Penton's...


The age of Weldy fits more with Penton's age group than Hall's..


The Weldy case does fit one on Penton's M.O.'s & the Weldy case matches a Missing Person case in Cabot Pennsylvania.


On 2-22-1985 the 8 year old female was dropped off by her school bus only 100 yards from her home..The 8 year old female never made it home..


She vanished without a trace & has never been found..


Mja has been trying to gain more Info about the Weldy case from the former cellmate of Penton's but nothing solid to produced any results...

I heard many years ago that the killer was known but that it couldn't be proven , so the police let the case go cold. I heard this from an inmate at Westville Correctional Facility, where I was a correctional officer.
