Terapon Adhahn Avoids Death Penalty By Leading Police to the Body of 12 Year Old Zina Linnik
This is a perfect example of how predators game our legal system to save themselves. There is no more deserving recipient of the death penalty than Terapon Adhahn, the child predator who abducted, assaulted and killed 12 year old Zina Linnik. However, prosecutors made a deal with Terapon taking the death penalty off the table in return that he bring them to Zina Linnik. Of course Tarapon Adhahn knew at the time he made the deal he had murdered the innocent 12 year old and was just saving his own bacon.
However, Adhahn is being investigated for the sexual assault and murder of others including Adre’Anna Jackson. If found guilty of other crimes we can only hope that the death penalty is brought back into play for this individual who have more than earned it.
With a man in custody, but no way of knowing whether Zina was still alive, Pierce County Prosecuting Attorney Gerald Horne weighed an offer that could potentially spare the lives of both victim and suspect.
“We were afraid that time was running out,” Horne said Monday. “Had the suspect stashed Zina? Was she bound and abandoned but actually alive? Was she imprisoned somewhere? Did she need water? There was only one who could answer those questions: the suspect.”
So Horne offered Terapon Adhahn a deal: Take investigators to the little girl and prosecutors would not seek the death penalty in the event she was dead. (Seattle Times)
Charges were filed Monday against Terapon Adhahn for the murder of Zina Linnik.
Charging papers filed Monday in connection with Zina’s death spelled out the case prosecutors are building against the 42-year-old handyman and laborer.
Adhahn’s DNA was matched to DNA found on the girl, charging papers allege. An autopsy showed that Zina died of blunt trauma to the head, according to charging papers, but the time of death could not be determined.
Horne, during the news conference, said she died from a blow to her head that did not break the skin or fracture her skull but caused internal bleeding of the brain. She also had two other injuries that were not fatal, Horne said.
Adhahn charged in 2000 kidnapping, rape

Oh Come on, the system is flat out telling us our children are not worthy of any laws to protect them. Sadly, this will only change when it happens in a law makers family and then the laws will change pronto.
Not to mention the scum bag attorneys who represent and defend the perverts.
CHILD PREDATORS ARE TERRORISTS. AND SHOULD BE TREATED AND PUNISHED AS SO.
Miss U, I totally agree. I think we should just off them… The filthy pigs.. They are useless to anyone and all they do is REPEAT their filthy actions. At least her family can bury her body and start to grieve..unlike Natalees family…
Best would be if he is allowed to mingle with other prisoners and someone accidently lets the others know who he is and what he has done.
I don’t know. While I’m ALL for the death penalty for ALL child predator cases, I can see making the deal for the family so they have closure and a body to bury. Much easier than wondering if your daughter’s body is in a garbage dump in Aruba.
What we should really be yelling about is the judge the set a predator free because they couldn’t find a translator fast enough for some strange dialect the predator probably doesn’t even still speak.
I agree Miss… we have sent kids a message that they are unimportant. Why is that? Because they aren’t a voting or spending block yet, and even the marketers are devising ways of changing that. So in essence, what we say to kids is that they are only worthy if the parents give them enough money to spend. How truly sad that kids are no longer kids..
And they wonder why we buy them video gamesand allow them to stay indoors… cause there are pervs hiding everywhere waiting to taken our children.
