Strong delete: Despite all the press it got, Linehan is just one person with an unremarkable past (in the historical sense) who has been convicted of murder. Are we going to search newspapers and documentary archives for similiar cases and profile them all? Despite being an admittedly widely reported trial, what is the significance? Neither the defendant nor the victim were famous or otherwise remarkable before the trial. There have been lots of high profile murder cases in Alaska and beyond.

Don't delete this story. If one followed it from start to present, they could find a haunting similarity to the Madeline Smith story. Leppink spoke with several people indicating Mechele as a possible culprit to his impending death. He claimed to suspect impending doom, and was reportedly found with his life insurance on his person...who would do something like that???? Someone who orchestrated the whole thing perhaps? I don't think the public has heard the last of this story at all. More than one person suspects Mrs. Linehan as having been rail-roaded. Anchoragean (talk) 00:23, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
I personally think Mechele is innocent.
Don't delete this story. This isn't the average murder, if one delves into it, it's more complicated than most mystery novels. Obviously the public hasn't heard the last, since the conviction has been overturned. That said, I fail to believe she is innocent. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 21:59, 5 February 2010 (UTC)
well she just totally got away with murder considering that the judge overturned her conviction. good job mechele i hope it haunts you forever —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 22:31, 5 February 2010 (UTC)
- By winning her appeal she returns to the state she was in just before her trail. Where she was arrested (and had been indicted by a grand jury) -- so to be released from jail she needs to meet certain conditions which include posting bail. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 00:49, 5 November 2010 (UTC)
