A 70-year-old woman was murdered and buried in concrete in her own basement, and the woman hired to take care of her is a person of interest, authorities say.
Lynn Gay Keene, who had last spoken to her family in June, was reported missing in late July. When investigators arrived at her home, in Linville Falls, North Carolina, they saw that her car wasn’t there.
Officials eventually found the vehicle, with two empty bags of concrete inside. For Detective Tim Austin, it was his first clue that “something was up.”
“In my 16 years in law enforcement, I’ve never seen anything like this,” Austin said.
