Roommate of alleged East Feliciana serial killer arrested; authorities say she stole thousands from him

A woman who was living with alleged East Feliciana serial killer Ryan Sharpe was arrested last week in the theft of at least $14,500 from his safe. 

Robin Linder, 54, was booked Dec. 8 into East Feliciana Parish Jail on a count of felony theft, according to East Feliciana Parish Clerk of Court records. Her listed address matches that of Sharpe, at 14277 La. 959. 

Sheriff Jeff Travis said Linder broke into the safe to steal several thousand dollars from Sharpe, 36. However, Travis emphasized that investigators do not believe Linder is connected in any way to the four shootings, three of which were fatal, that authorities have linked to Sharpe.

Sharpe has been accused in the string of shootings within a 25-mile radius over a four-month period earlier this year. Travis said Linder and Sharpe had previously been dating, but he did not know if they are still together.

Can You Use This Data Set to Find Serial Killers?

The story also inspired us to check out his data. Hargrove collected as much homicide data as was available online by downloading the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Report data from 1976–2015. He then went the extra mile to obtain additional and (until then) generally unavailable data from Alabama, Florida, Illinois, and D.C. He used unknown offender sex as a proxy for unsolved case and grouped these cases by geographic area (county or metro area), weapon, and sex. Such cases are unfortunately not uncommon, especially if the victims are women. (There are also cases of multiple homicides of young men and unknown offenders, but data suggests that women are more likely to be targeted by serial killers.) Studying these individual groups, he found that he was able to find cases of suspected serial homicides, with young women as victims and unknown offenders, and this is what led to the discovery of the

‘Son of Sam’ serial killer David Berkowitz hospitalized for reported heart ailment – WLS

The “Son of Sam” serial killer who terrorized New York City 40 years ago is in the hospital.

New York state prison officials say Tuesday that 64-year-old David Berkowitz was transferred to a hospital from the upstate maximum-security prison where he is serving a life sentence.

Officials would not comment on why he was in the hospital, but the New York Post and the Times-Union of Albany reported that he was transferred to undergo heart surgery.

Berkowitz, who called himself “Son of Sam,” set the city on edge with late-night shootings that killed six people and wounded seven. He primarily targeted young women sitting in cars before his arrest Aug. 10, 1977.

Berkowitz now says he is a born-again Christian and is “very sorry for what happened.”
