Parents Turn In 4 Teens Who Stand Accused Of Dragging 73-Year-Old Woman To Her Death.

Four accused that were sought by New Orleans Police after an awful car theft that led to the death of a 73-year-old woman are now in custody.

Three of the four teens detained in the car theft and death of Linda Frickey were turned in to police by their parents. Officials have applauded the parents on doing the right thing in a heart-wrenching situation that unnecessarily changed the lives of everyone involved.

Linda was getting prepared to leave her job in the Mid-City neighborhood when she was carjacked by a 17-year-old male, a 16-year-old female, and two 15-year-old females. They got in her car and sped off so fast that Linda was still partly in her seat belt. She was pulled by the car for more than a block before she was displaced and her arm was detached.

Locals in the area tried to interfere in hopes to save the woman but there was nothing that could be done.

Linda’s sister, Kathy Richard told to the police station that her sister was coming out of her office building putting something in her car. She got twisted in her seat belt because the carjackers did not give her time to get out. Kathy said that it is disgusting that they dragged her without any foresight and mutilated her.

Kathy continued that her sister was a good person. She would have helped anyone off the streets. She would have given them the car if they would have just given her the chance to step away. Kathy said that Linda should have lived to be 100 years old still helping everyone.

Linda was set to step down from her job in just a month. Her husband had just superannuated with the couple looking forward to spending more time with family and each other.

Kathy said that Linda didn’t have the chance to see her son get married next year and her granddaughter was only 7 years old. She didn’t get enough time with her as she did not deserve to go that way.

The four accused photos were put out publicly soon after the instance after Linda’s car was recovered and security footage in the area gave hints at them. Hours later, the mother of one of the 15-year-old suspects turned her daughter in. Later in the day, parents of the male 17-year-old suspect informed police where he and the 16-year-old female suspicious could be found. The remaining 15-year-old female suspect turned herself in.

The four suspects were booked at the Juvenile Justice Intervention Center. Each of them is facing one count of second-degree murder. As they are minors, their individualities have been sheltered.

New Orleans Police Department Superintendent said in a press meeting that this was an extremely tough decision on the behalf of these parents and he want to praise them for doing the right thing. He said that it is very painful to turn in your child for somewhat you know they were not raised to be.
