SOMERSET, Ky. (WKYT) - On July 3rd, 1994, Linda Gibson, 21, and her half-brother, Cody Lee Garrett, 4, were last seen walking on Bourne Avenue near what is now a Convenient Food Mart in Somerset.
Police think someone may have picked them up…killed them and then dumped their bodies in a field about two miles away.
“We feel like this is someone that they knew, were familiar with both of them,” says Lt. Brett Whitaker with the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office.
Lt. Whitaker says someone may have had a personal vengeance against Gibson and the 4-year-old may have just been in the wrong place…at the wrong time.
“He probably witnessed the crime against Linda and would have been able to identify the attacker, and our investigators believe that’s why he was murdered also,” said Whitaker.
Police say they’ve had persons of interest but no suspects.
“We’ve not received any information for new leads in several years. This is a case, we still believe that someone knows something that can get us on the right track,” said Lt. Whitaker.
In the past two decades the case has been worked on by local police and the FBI. Federal investigators were brought in because police say they have wanted to take advantage of as many leads as possible.
