Linnik Murder Suspect Now Linked To Jackson
Terapon Adhahn, the man suspected of the kidnap and murder of Zina Linnik, has now been named as a person-of-interest in another Washington girl's death.
When Adhahn was brought into custody, cops in Lakewood, Wash. began looking into the possibility that he may have been responsible for the disappearance and death of 10-year-old Adre'anna Jackson.
Police say that after they handed out fliers of Adhahn in Adre'anna's hometown, some neighbors remembered seeing the murder suspect working as a handyman in the area around the time that Adre'anna disappeared.
While he remains a person-of-interest in the Jackson case, Adhahn is to be arraigned on July 17, 2007 on numerous counts of child rape and kidnapping for two other instances involving girls in Spanaway and Fort Lewis.
Remains Identified As Missing Washington Girl's
The remains of Adre'anna Jackson, a 10-year-old girl who disappeared on Dec. 2, 2005, have been found.The remains were reportedly discovered in an overgrown lot in Lakewood, Wash. Police say medical examiners confirmed the bones belonged to Adre'anna on April 5, 2006 -- four months after she went missing.
Police in Washington state are still searching for evidence leading them to the person responsible for Adre'anna's death.
Drifter Located In Case Of Girl's Death
Now, Washington police have located a 44-year-old drifter in the case of Adre'anna Jackson. According to officials, convicted sex offender Spencer Grant frequents the overgrown lot where Adre'anna's remains were discovered. Police say Grant is not a suspect in Adre'anna's disappearance or death because he was serving time on drug charges at the time of her disappearance.
However, according to officials, Grant may have found Adre'anna's remains weeks before police were notified. He has not been charged in connection with Adre'anna's disappearance or death and police do not consider him a suspect at this time.
