Sweet Neighbor Lady…OR MURDERER?

Sixty-four-year-old Linda Darby lived in a small Tennessee town for thirty-five years with her husband and children, according to the Chicago Tribune.  The 7,500-person town’s sheriff reportedly knew Darby by sight, but had never known her to commit a crime.

She was arrested earlier this month and discovered to be a convicted murderer who killed her husband and was sent to prison in 1972.  She apparently escaped by scaling a barbed-wire fence and has avoided recapture until now.

An elderly neighbor of Darby’s has allegedly questioned the point of jailing a woman who has been crime-free for so long.  But police, it seems, are still concerned with maintaining that little thing known as “criminal justice”.
