McLinn Charged in Death of Lawrence Man

city-lawrence-sizedLAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — A 19-year-old Lawrence woman has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of a businessman whose home she shared. Sarah Brooke Gonzales McLinn had been the subject of a search since the body of 52-year-old Harold Sasko was found Jan. 17. Lawrence Police Chief Tarik Khatib says park rangers found McLinn on Sunday camping in Everglades National Park in Florida. McLinn was in federal custody in Homestead, Fla. Douglas County District Attorney Charles Branson filed the murder charge Monday and said McLinn will be extradited to Kansas. Authorities had refused to say during the search for McLinn whether she was considered a suspect or victim. Sasko owned three pizza restaurants in Topeka and Lawrence.
