Linda Edwards burial

Former Garland County Sheriff’s Deputy Linda Louise Edwards who was apparently murdered on Aug. 22, 1976 and whose remains were found on Jack Mountain in February, was buried in Greenwood Cemetery Saturday morning with only family and close friends present.

Garland County Sheriff Leon Barlow who served as a pallbearer and other officers attended the services.

“I think the family was relieved because she has finally been put to rest,” Barlow said Saturday afternoon. “After all her remains have been through, it’s comforting to know she has finally been given a permanent resting place.”

Only about 18 persons attended the services and Barlow, Chief Deputy Tony Robbins, Lt. Jim Taylor, Lt. Roy Smith, Sgt. Don Diggs and Deputy Jay Sexton were the pallbearers.
