It was a dark night in June when a menacing band of 4 people forced a woman off a freeway just 30 miles east of Boise in Caldwell, Idaho.
This group of 3 men and 1 woman’s purpose was none other than to rob an innocent person of their money, and life.
The victim-Linda LeBrane never saw it coming. The assault on Linda’s life was brutal.
They stabbed Linda 17 times, slit her throat, and she was left to die. But this attack doesn’t end here. But first, why did they attack her? The reason is because they were looking for money and drugs and perhaps for thrills. Upon finding out that she only had $40 they became violently enraged at her. They beat her with her own aluminum baseball bat.
She was alone, and NOT prepared for what was about to happen to her. Had Linda been carrying some type of self-defense or pepper spray or a stun gun perhaps she could have escaped the violent assault unscathed.
After they terrified and bludgeoned the 40 some year old, the foursome returned later to set her and her car on fire while Linda lay helpless.
Linda LeBranes story is a terrifying story but with important lessons that cannot be forgotten. She survived, but I must tell how she made many mistakes that NO ONE should make.
Here they are:
another reason I say this, is because there are people that have been locked up because Linda could NOT positively identify them even after TWO years.
According to one of the Caldwell police,
“We still don’t have a name, at least one we can count on,” referring to the woman who was at large at the time. He went on to comment “There’s so much conflicting information about her right now that we don’t know what’s real and what’s Memorex.”
Because Linda had Caldwell Police searching for Hispanics when they should have been looking for the actual people that committed the crime, it would be years later before authorities actually caught up with the possible culprits.
Remember Linda LeBrane was as “hi as a kite” according to court documents and I think everyone knows what happens when someone’s on drugs.
Their credibility goes out the window.
So how would you feel if you were locked up on charges from a stoner who said you tried to kill her two years ago?
It is possible that John Wurdemann, Kenneth Wurdemann, Jeremy Sanchez, and the alleged ring leader Sarah Pearce were wrongfully convicted. I’m not convinced that these four are the actual murders in this attack.
I am by no means saying they are not the attackers. All I’m saying is that this case needs to be examined better, and needs to be brought into the public’s eye. You can help by forwarding this article to everyone you know. Perhaps the real attackers are still out there, and perhaps the wrongfully accused can be set free.
What do you think? After reading about this story which has been on A & E and America’s Most Wanted, how do you feel? Do you think the alleged attackers are the ones that should be locked up or do you think there is a possibility that this case needs to be looked at further?
