    CO - Linnea Dick, 20, raped & murdered, Fort Collins, 30 May 2008

    Police say 20-year-old Linnea Dick was found inside a burning house at 124 Yale Ave. She was sexually assaulted and strangled. Then, police say, her killer set two fires to try and cover up the crime.

    It was standing room only inside St. Andrews Episcopal Church.

    "I want to say how sorry I am that I could not hold you tight enough to protect you on Friday, May 30th," read Linnea's brother-in-law, Eric Gliva, on behalf of Linnea's mother, Opal, about the day Linnea was murdered.

    Her mother also promises her daughter she'll love her every single day. And tells her daughter she'll make sure to take good care of her animals. Linnea had two dogs, three cats, a lizard, a turtle and fish.

    A 29-year-old man was taken into custody Monday in the sexual assault and murder of a Fort Collins woman whose body was found inside her home following a fire.

    The arrest came just hours after Linnea Dick's family made an emotional plea for the community to help catch her killer.

    Joseph Curl surrendered to authorities at about 4:15 p.m. Monday after being contacted by police earlier in the afternoon, Fort Collins Police said.

    Curl was booked in the Larimer County jail on charges of first-degree murder and sexual assault. His booking photo was not immediately available.

    Joseph Curl, 29, faces charges of first-degree murder and sexual assault in the death of Linnea Dick.

    Dick’s body was found inside her home in the 100 block of Yale Avenue last Friday when firefighters responded to a fire. The Larimer County Coroner determined she had been strangled to death.

    Police say Curl attempted to conceal the crime by setting two fires inside the victim’s home. One fire was burning in the bedroom and another in the basement. A cat died in the blaze.

    This poor girl and her poor family. It's so heartbreaking her BIL wishes he could have kept her safe. This monster has taken away a lovely 20 year old who had her entire life ahead of her.

    This is so very sad.

    What a beautiful girl Linnea Dick is.

    Curl is a convicted felon and did time in two States. His father, Jack Curl is a convicted sex offender who was arrested in Florida and he's violent.

    Photos and more at link. God Bless this poor family.

    Seems the rotten apple didn't fall too far from the tree. I am so glad they caught this animal. I wonder if Linnea knew him or if it was just completly random? She is such a beautiful girl. May she rip.

    I will never understand why men have to rape and murder? It just doesn't make sense to me. This girl was absolutely gorgeous. So sad for her and her family.

    It's his brother, Jackie Curl, Jr., that is the Registered Sex Offender here in Florida. DOC reports his last know address is in St. Pete.

    I think the article means Jack Curl, Jr. (Joseph's brother) is the registered sex offender. Maybe the father is too but I didn't read it that way.

    Sorry RiverRat, I should have read further.

    Why do they give these guys so many chances? That is a big problem in our justice system.

    This is so sad.

    SewingDeb - as for giving them so many chances - this guy was a thief. I didn't read anything in the articles that said he had any priors for "violent" or sex crimes. Burgarly and car theft. There must be something in his background though..... I would think he has probably raped before and just didn't get caught. I could be wrong, but generally, isn't murder something you "work your way up to"?

    I am glad they caught him so quickly and I hope he never gets out!

    She was a beautiful girl, prayers to her family and may she rest in peace,

    Salem

    Salem, I think you are right that he has probably gotten away with other things in the past. Murder is a big leap when you look at his criminal record.

    Sorry you are right SD. I actually read the brother's age too as 32. Duh! Couldn't be his father. His brother is rough looking.

    Linnea's Funeral Service

    Here's a link to Linnea's funeral service. Warning it is heartwrenching. This young lady loved dance and photography and especially animals. Her mom said at her funeral that her animal's will be cared for. A promise to her DD.
