How to help the Linnik family

Tags: , , ,

I'm walking down your street again
Past your door
But you don't live there anymore
And I miss you - Like the deserts miss the rain -
RIP Zina Linnick

Three accounts have been opened for donations to Zina Linnik’s family:

• The Zina Linnik Memorial Fund at Key Bank. Donations can be made at any branch.

• The Tacoma Police Department opened an account for the Linnik family at TAPCO Credit Union. Locations are available at or by calling 253-565-9895.

• The Linnik Memorial Fund at any Bank of America branch. The money can be withdrawn only by Zina’s father.

When did the murder suspect come here?

Terapon Adhahn, prime suspect in the abduction and slaying of 12-year-old Zina Linnik, settled in Pierce County no earlier than December 1989, according to available public records.

The date is a crucial one – investigators from Tacoma police and the FBI are checking the grim possibility that Adhahn, 42, is tied to other cases of missing and slain children.

Zina Linnik went missing July 4 from behind her family’s home on Tacoma’s Hilltop. Her body was found Thursday in East Pierce County.

A 1989 arrival date, if accurate, could eliminate Adhahn as a person of interest in prominent unsolved cases from the 1980s, including the 1986 slayings of Michella Welch and Jenny Bastian.

Interviewed in the Seattle P-I, Zina’s uncle addresses the government’s failure to deport criminal aliens like Adhahn.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
