Linda’s next chapter: What happens to Dru’s killer?


IDEAL TOWNSHIP — Linda Walker has fielded more than her fair share of personal losses.

Her daughter, Dru Sjodin, a 2000 Pequot Lakes High School graduate, was abducted, raped and murdered by a convicted sex offender on Nov. 22, 2003.

Since that time Walker has lost her father and mother-in-law. In July, she lost her mother.

She then watched the health of her husband — her “rock” — Sid Walker, rapidly decline after her mother died and she lost him, too, on Sept. 4.
