Lubbock Authorities Officially Link Two Unsolved Murder Cases

DNA evidence confirms the suspicions of Lubbock authorities investigating two Lubbock County murders - they are connected.

These are the murder victims: Cynthia Palacio and Linda Trevino Carbajal. Both had prostitution records and the partially-nude bodies of both women were found on county roads. 21-year-old Cynthia Palacio was found in a ditch, west of Slaton on CR 7800, in July of 2003. The body of 21-year-old Linda Carbajal was found on CR 5700, near New Deal, in April of 2004.

Investigators with the Lubbock Sheriff's Office will not say what kind of DNA was found. "We want to hold that part back from the community, so that we'll have something we can discuss with the suspect, not all of it was from sexual intercourse," said Greg Parrott with the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office.

Tonight the killers of these women are still at large. Authorities encourage anyone with information to call 775-1406 or Crime Line at 741-1000.
