Linda Marie Pagano (April 11, 1957 - 1974) was a teenager found murdered in 1975. She initially disappeared in September 1974.

Her family confirmed the match in July, 2018. Until then, she had been unidentified for 43 years.


Pagano had an argument with her stepfather and left home, never to be seen again. Little information is available on her disappearance and the investigation.

On February 5, 1975, her partial skeleton was discovered along a riverbank by children. Her mandible was not recovered and her limbs were missing, presumably due to dismemberment, as her killer had sawed some of her teeth out of the skull.
