Uhlig, Linda D. (1953? - Mar 1972)

Linda Uhlig, age 19, formerly of Colby, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Uhlig of Colby, was found dead on a country road in a remote area near the small truck farm settlement of Half Moon Bay, California, last Monday.

Miss Uhlig had spoken to her brother Wilber of Millbre, California, on Friday, in San Francisco, stopped and cashed her paycheck at a bank, and from this point on had not been seen since.

Uhlig has theorized the motive for the killing was robbery, as no money was found on the body. The murder happened sometime between Friday afternoon and early Sunday morning.

An official report has not been issued as yet, but Uhlig stated the San Francisco police, the County Sheriff’s Department and detective are working on the case and have reported having some good clues and a lead.

Funeral services for Linda Diane Uhlig were held Wednesday afternoon at the First United Church of Christ at Colby, with the Rev. Kenneth A. Dix officiating.

Linda was educated in the public school and Colby school system and graduated from Colby High School in 1970. She went to California in June of 1970 and was a resident there since that time.

She was employed by the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company as a typist.

Besides he parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Uhlig of Colby, she is survived by four brothers, Wilbert of Millbre, California, Gerald of Sturtevant, Wis., Charles of Kenosha, and John of Spencer; three sisters, Mrs. Pau (Kathleen) Miller, West Allis, Wis., Mrs. James (Marie) Gussert of Brookfield, Wis., Mrs. John (Anita) Meyer, West Allis.

One brother and sister preceded her in death.
