AK - Linda Martz Bower, 19, murdered, Eagle River, 10 Sept 2014
A 28-year-old Anchorage man told his brother he had strangled his girlfriend, and when his brother said he intended to call police, the man drove off with the body in the back seat of his car, police said Thursday.
A short time later, David Joseph Thomas called police himself and was found with the car and the body of Linda Anne Martz Bower, 19, in the parking lot of a pharmacy.
David Joseph Thomas, 28, has been charged with first- and second-degree murder after he allegedly told police he had strangled Linda Anne Martz Bower, his girlfriend...
During an interview with APD, Thomas told authorities he remembered being in his room and “being over” Bower while his hands were around her throat. He doesn’t remember what happened after, he said, and that when he woke up he was on the floor and his girlfriend was “stiff,” the affidavit says. The next thing he says he remembers after that is waking up in the front seat of his vehicle with Bower’s body in the backseat of his car...
Though Thomas doesn’t have any known convictions in Alaska, he violated a protective order in Montana in 2006, according to the affidavit.

I was a friend of Linda's, the Fuery last name was just one she gave herself. She wasn't married before.
Linda was an incredible person. Please be respectful.

Thank you for clearing that up. I'm so very sorry that Linda's life was stolen from her, and that you lost your beautiful friend.
