County Prosecutor Opposes Linda Couch Possible Parole

Written By Ishton W. Morton – February 4th, 2021

Couch shot her husband in the head and then wrapped his body in a rug and buried him in their Price Hill backyard.

Seemingly, Linda Couch is an overwhelming embodiment of devil-woman. Thusly, it is understandable why Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters announced a serious and most unrelenting opposition yet to the possible parole of Linda Couch.

Subsequently, on Thursday, October 25th, 1984 Linda Couch was arrested and allegedly charged with the murder death of her husband Walter. She proclaimed to have “accidentally” shooting him in the head after her husband “laughed” as her husband’s pals raped her.

Thereafter, she drafted her father-in-law, a neighbor, her three young children to assist with digging a hole in the backyard under the false pretense of significant “drainage issues and needed grass seed planting.”

Reportedly, “The defendant in this case shot and killed her husband. After the victim died, Couch wrapped him in carpet and kept him in the basement of their house for several weeks. While the victim laid in the basement of the house, the defendant with the aid of her young children dug a ditch in the backyard to bury her husband. The defendant then continued living her life in a normal fashion and only admitted to this heinous crime after the victim’s parent’s contacted police.”

Ironically, Couch repeatedly lied to Walter’s close family concerning his whereabouts.  Also, she told her children that their father had left them.   Additionally, she told her in-laws, who were very close to their son that he was not home for various reasons.

Eventually, after a little more than a week, her in-laws grew enormously suspicious as her father-in-law through some sagacity of Divine Inspiration suspected something was tremendously odd about the hole in the backyard went to the hole and discovered his deceased son.

Apparently, Linda Couch was driven by pure diabolical energies, or that she possessed definite characteristic of the devil.

Furthermore, after she killed her husband and enlisted others to help with burying his body, she went on a shopping spree and bought new furniture for her home.  Also, she forged the deed to their home and put the home in her name, took her children on vacation and tried to take out loans for additional funds.

Couch proclaimed to have “accidentally” her husband ‘laughed’ as his pals raped her insists shot him in the head.

To date, she was refused parole seven times.

Well! On Wednesday, February 3rd, 2021 Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters announced his opposition to the possible parole of Linda Couch.  Accordingly, Couch’s parole hearing is set for March 2021.

Predicated on Andy Nadel commentary, “This case stands out among the thousands that I have reviewed as particularly gruesome, as a longtime prosecutor’s office employee. Shooting her husband in the head is bad enough but then enlisting her innocent children and unsuspecting father-in-law and neighbor to dig a hole and help bury her husband’s body, is chilling.”

He continued to say, “This case stands out among the thousands that I have reviewed as particularly gruesome.  Shooting her husband in the head is bad enough but then enlisting her innocent children and unsuspecting father-in-law and neighbor to dig a hole and help bury her husband’s body, is chilling.

Nadel added; “Couch deserves every day of her life sentence and I hope that the community will join our office in opposing her possible parole.”

It is believed that Couch was rightfully convicted of aggravated murder in the 1984 murder of her husband, Walter and many in the community believes she should continue her residence  behind bars. 

She was sentenced to life in prison.  Couch shot her husband in the head and then wrapped his body in a rug and buried him in their Price Hill backyard.

Nonetheless, Linda was sentenced to life for aggravated murder. To date, she was refused parole seven times. Again, her next parole hearing is scheduled for March 2021.   

The community can log onto the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s website www.hcpros.org and go to parole watch to email the Ohio Parole Authority with their opposition to Couch’s release.
