Summary of unsolved case
Double Murder - July 7, 1994
Victims:
Linda Gibson
Cody Lee Garrett

Linda and Cody were last seen walking in the area of the Dairy Mart on Bourne Ave in Somerset, KY on July 3, 1994. After they failed to return home, family members reported them missing the following day to the Somerset Police Department.

On July 7, 1994 the bodies of both Linda and Cody were discovered in a remote area just outside the city limits of Somerset. They were found in high weeds along a fence row at the edge of a field.

The investigation found that the two had been murdered at an unknown location and that their bodies had been dumped at the site where they were found. The area of discovery is approximately 2 miles from the Bourne Ave area where they were last seen.

An investigation led by the Pulaski Sheriff's Department along with the Somerset Police Department and the FBI has been ongoing since the discovery. Although no arrests have been made, the investigation has uncovered possible suspects and investigators have been concentrating on those leads.

I wish they would update us on this.

What are everyones thoughts on this case?
With this town being so small someone has to know something.

And the Regina Cox case as well. Its kind of like they have been forgotten.

These 2 cases run through my mind all the time. I feel so much sorrow for the families. I pray that they get closure.

Was this Cody a child? Doesnt the family members push investigators to reopen the case?
You're right this is sad. With a small gossipy community, I am sure someone knows something!

I would love an update also.

The second crime scene was completely adulterated. It was like a county tractor pull out there that hot July evening as dozens of curiosity seekers converged on the location of the bodies. It was only after SPD determined that the bodies were located a few feet out in county jurisdiction that the Sheriff's Office was handed the task of determining "who done it". There is little hope for any closure to this sad story. More, maybe later.

of course there has been rumors about the double murder. saying that CK Cundiff was the murderer. I was only 12 when it happened and ever since then it crosses my mind from time to time. I know the little boys father and what would have been his brother.

I do believe someone higher up has kept a secret somewhere along the way. this town was even tinier back then so someone in this town knows. It kinda scares me to be honest.

I have had dreams about wanting to solve this case I have contacted a couple of places through the past couple of years to come in and investigate but nothing.

I want to know how much DNA was collected and can they not run that through the system now?

Siddymae...from what I understand, some of the Abbotts had a hand in this. Someone I know really well says she knows alot about it because she knew Linda and what all was going on.

Siddy....I also know the person who discovered the bodies VERY well. They were walking in the field and happened upon the scene. They were just teens at the time. Man, I wish I could say more. I agree that they need to open it back up. As I said earlier, I had always been under the impression that one of the Abbotts had actually been put in jail over it. I have also heard about the Cundiff connection.

I always heard that there were some very bad things done to the bodies. I would never want to see the crime scene photos thats for sure.

I know there are hundreds maybe even thousands of cold cases in the US but like i said i have had dreams about this and I feel like I need to help push the issue to get a little further in the solving of this case. I dont know maybe I am just crazy.

And I am sure people through out time havent really cared much because they were considered "lower class" and of course the child was Bi-racial but surely our little town is passed that mentality. race or class shouldnt play a part in the effort to solve this cold case. Im not saying everyone had thought that but it has been a question in my mind.

I contacted wkyt a few months ago when they were doing cold case specials around KY but they never responded. I also posted on A&E's discussion board maybe someone somewhere that has the ability to solve cases will want to help.

Hi everyone..Linda's brother works for my husband, he said some of the most horibble things you could ever think of were done to this woman and poor little boy. Sometimes I am ashamed to say I live here in Somerset. My dad is a paramedic and knows lots of the police here, there are so many things that happen that we dont even hear about. I do wish this case along with lots others would be solved! It is a sad, sad thing!! If they arent brought to justice in this life, they will in the next.

I commend your effort on the steps you've taken, to get this crime solved! NO, you're not crazy, just a caring human! It sounds like if you were an investigator this WOULD be solved!! I agree with your above statement about it being scary! You never know, who did it! We could've ALL shaken hands with this murderer, or set by him at church, or gave him our parking spot at walmart! You just never know! Note: I use the term 'him' lightly, it could also be a woman..

This is so odd on the same day this was posted we were talking about the same cases and how they had not been solved. This is something that everyone in this town knows about and all can say the exact names that was posted
agree

I am interested in this case, but I havent lived in Pulaski for a long time. I do not know those that have been suspects. < even if it is just the publics suspision> Is this person, that is higher, a cop or what? You dont have to say any names I just wonder what position he holds or held.
