    NY - Bronx (East River), WhtFem, Unk Age, Possibly Named 'Linda', May'84

    This is quite a strange case. I don't know if this is allowed here, because I was unable to find a Doe Net or NamUs page for her, but she is still UNIDENTIFIED, and may have been connected to Princess Doe.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Princess_Doe (mentioned as one of the two still-unidentified women killed by Arthur Kinlaw)

    The NY Times article is old ('98) but she is still unidentified and it's a good source of information.

    She was 5'4, 130 lbs., with short black hair. She called herself "Linda" and met Arthur and Donna Kinlaw at the Blackberry Jam club in Bay Shore, NY, in early 1984. She may have lived with her grandmother in Bay Shore or Brentwood. She was killed after refusing to become a prostitute, and threatening to go to police.

    This woman was found in the East River off of Hunts Point (the Bronx), not Bay Shore. A lot of people on LI must remember the Blackberry Jam club. I wonder if they were ever interviewed?
