Linda Marie Bailey Brown
Birth: Aug. 26, 1961
North Platte
Lincoln County
Nebraska, USA
Death: Mar. 19, 1985
Garden Grove
Orange County
California, USA

Murder Victim. Linda Brown was shot to death while she slept in the early morning hours of March 19, 1985 by her stepdaughter Cinnamon Brown as part of a plot hatched by David Brown, Linda's husband and Cinnamon's father, and Patti Bailey, Linda's sister, to collect almost one million dollars in insurance money. David had convinced the girls that Linda was trying to kill him and if they really loved him, they would get rid of Linda for him. He had also convinced Cinnamon to take full responsibility for the crime so he could avoid going to jail. Cinnamon finally confessed the murder plot after finding out that David had married Patti Bailey, whom he had been molesting since she was eleven and had a child with her. David and Patti were eventually jailed for their participation in the murder, with David getting additional time for attempting hiring a hit man to murder Patti Bailey before she could testify. Ann Rule wrote a book about the case "If You Really Loved Me". (bio by: Unknown)
