    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Princess_Doe (mentioned as one of the two still-unidentified women killed by Arthur Kinlaw)

    She was 5'4, 130 lbs., with short black hair. She called herself "Linda" and met Arthur and Donna Kinlaw at the Blackberry Jam club in Bay Shore, NY, in early 1984. She may have lived with her grandmother in Bay Shore or Brentwood. She was killed after refusing to become a prostitute, and threatening to go to police.


    The woman's body was discovered in the East River off Hunts Point on May 3, 1984. When pulled from the water, the short, black-haired woman was wearing a ripped blouse and blue jeans, and appeared to have been bludgeoned and suffocated, the police said. Her hands had been tied behind her back with parts of her blouse, and other sections of the blouse were stuffed down her throat, said Sgt. Nick Vreeland, a police spokesman.

    There were few clues. But in April, welfare fraud investigators in California told investigators in New York that a woman whose name was being used as an alias by Mrs. Kinslaw said she had information about a murder.

    The informer said that the dead woman's first name was Linda, that she was probably of Italian-American origin and may have lived with her grandmother in either Brentwood or Bay Shore on Long Island, the police said. Detectives narrowed down the possible victims to the body found in the East River in 1984.

    With that statement and other evidence, the police concluded that Mr. Kinlaw, then 46, and his 39-year-old wife met the woman at a club called Blackberry Jam in Bay Shore sometime in 1984. There, the Kinlaws, who have nine children from their 20-year marriage, befriended the woman and then tried to persuade her to become a prostitute, the police said.

    After several days of resisting their offer, the woman threatened to go to the police, according to detectives. The couple then beat and suffocated her, later taking her body to Hunts Point and dumping it in the river, the police said.
