Hope For Answers, 23 Years After Double Murder

Posted: Updated:

SOMERSET, Ky. (LEX 18) - 23 years of sleepless nights and mourning for one family, and still no arrests in a Pulaski County double murder. 

In 1994, the bodies of 21 year-old Linda Gibson and her four year-old brother, Cody Garrett, were found along a fence line.

Family members say they were last seen alive at a convenience store near downtown Somerset.

"Everything that happened to her, and the way she was killed, you know it saddened the whole community. It was the talk all around town for years," said Jackie McGowan, a family friend.

"It weighs on us everyday. It's destroyed our family. There ain't a minute, a second that goes by that we don't think about Linda and Cody," said Clayton Gibson, Linda's brother.

Clayton is frustrated that after 23 years, there have been no arrests.

On Monday, friends and family are gathering to mourn Linda and Cody with prayers, candlelight, and a balloon release. The vigil will be at Fountain Square at Somerset starting at 7:00 pm.

"Next month, November, will be Linda's birthday. And we we're just hoping that people would come out and maybe show a little support, something that we haven't had any of for like 20-something years," said Gibson.

They also hope that with a strong showing, maybe someone will be inspired to come forward with new information.

After more than 23 years, that's the only hope that remains.
