Sarah McLinnLAWRENCE, KS –  The Kansas teen reported missing shortly before her former boss was found dead in his home, has been found in Florida and charged with the man’s murder.

The body of 52-year-old Harold Sasko was found in his home on January 17 after the family of one of his former employees, 19-year-old Sarah McLinn, called police to report her missing. Sasko owned several CiCi’s pizza places in the area and had let McLinn move into his home in 2012.

Officers who found Sasko say he had suffered several traumatic injuries, and believed he was subdued and unconscious before an “edged device” was used to kill him. McLinn’s car was still in the driveway, but Sasko’s car and dog were misssing.

Police immediately began searching the area for McLinn and issued a nationwide alert to be on the lookout for McLinn and Sasko’s Altima. That searched ended a week later when, 1500 miles away, Rangers found McLinn illegally camping at Everglades National Park. She was living in Sasko’s car and was found with drugs and Sasko’s dog, Oliver. She was taken into custody on federal drug charges.

Florida authorities would later release those drug charges and the District Attorney’s office received a warrant for intentional premeditated first degree murder. Investigators say that based on the evidence they’ve collected, they believe McLinn was the only person responsible for Sasko’s murder, and that it was premeditated.

This contradicts statements made to McLinn’s mother. Michelle Gonzales says police told her that the attack seemed too brutal for her daughter to have conducted alone, and she believes her daughter is also a victim. McLinn is now awaiting extradition. If she waives extradition, she’ll be back in Kansas within days. If not, it could be months.

Some have already commented about Sasko letting the young, hot employee move into his home, hinting at nefarious motives. But one of Sasko’s ex-girlfriends says Sasko informed her he was letting McLinn move into his home to help the teen stay away from drugs and gang members she associated with. She also said she feared that this arrangement would not end well.

Sasko’s daughter said she wasn’t surprised by the charges. “Hearing the story the first time created a lot of questioning,” she stated. “I am, however, glad she is found. After the press release today, a lot of my suspicion has been confirmed. The charges against her come with no surprise.”

    What drugs were involved?

  • RedScarab

    They had one of those sex for a place to live type deals right?

  • anotheropinion

    Ummm Florida isn’t 15000 miles away from Kansas lol. But the whole situation has seemed fishy to me from Day 1…Like, why would a dude in his 50’s move an unrelated teen in? The details will be interesting once they are released!

  • t3chsupp0rt

    Yes, I’m sure he had her move in there to keep her away from ‘gangs’. Sounds like they may have deserved each other.

  • newstarshipsmell

    “Ummm Florida isn’t 15000 miles away from Kansas lol.”

    It could be, the way some Floridians drive…

  • anotheropinion

    I see your point there! Us Kansas kids are used to flat, straight roads so we usually choose the straightest shot.

  • Texas Ranger

    Sometimes I wish Florida WAS 15,000 miles away, like right next to Afghanistan or maybe Malaysia…they seem 15,000 miles away, but I could be wrong.

  • Jermaine Marcel Dotson

    Pretty ones are usually bat shit crazy

  • Texas Ranger

    I’d keep her away from drugs and gangs….Sweet senorita like that I would keep tired as hell in the bedroom and wouldn’t ever need a drug or a gang.

  • Texas Ranger

    Man, I’ve been saying that for years. Glad someone else sees the pattern.

  • newstarshipsmell

    The furthest distance between two points on the earth is about 12,500 miles, if you’re curious.

  • thebossessecretary

    I’m NOT crying over a 52 year old man who let a 19 year old girl move into his house to “help” her. Sorry. I have too many scumbag relatives who made a career out of fucking young girls at their daughters slumber parties, etc. etc.

  • Sudonim

    Just because you have skeevy family members doesn’t mean every man is a douche canoe. This story isn’t about him molesting some young girl, this ‘girl’ is in fact a legal adult and can make her own choices on who she fucks and who she doesn’t. This also isn’t a pedophile case..this is a case of some cracked out bimbo committing murder.

  • Texas Ranger

    So Florida can’t be 15,000 miles away without leaving the earths surface. Bummer! Where’s Dr. Evil when you need him?

  • thebossessecretary

    Are you a woman? Because I am and I cannot tell you how many middle aged men offered me a place to stay which incidentally included fucking them.

  • Texas Ranger

    Probably a bunch of young aged men too I’m betting.

  • newstarshipsmell

    LOL, actually, I got diameter and circumference confused. And I claim to be good at math.

    The actual number is 12,500 miles – what I originally posted before second-guessing myself and editing it, heh heh.

  • Texas Ranger

    I’ll take 12-1/2 K, seems a reasonable distance between me and that psycho ward. So I’m guessin, from Texas…Florida would now be in Vietnam. Fair guess?

  • newstarshipsmell

    Sounds like a good deal to me.

  • Sudonim

    I am female but I choose not to assume everyone in this world is deserving of a front page article. I also don’t tend to lead a lifestyle that people need to offer me a place to crash. I’ve had my own place since I was 16.

  • Texas Ranger

    Forgot to ask…You Need a place to ….ummmm….stay….while naked in the middle of my bed?

  • Buffettgirl

    Maybe I’m wrong, but I just don’t get the vibe that Harold is quite as innocent and altruistic as folks would have us believe…

  • Vesper B

    I agree! I try to look at the best in people, but this case just seems a little too odd

  • JohnQknowitall

    Awwww she loves dogs. What a sweety.

  • Buffettgirl

    Honestly, it gives me the heebie-jeebies, I heard awful 70’s porn music in the back of my head when I read the story!

  • Sudonim

    I’m on the fence about the sexual aspect (not that it matters since this is about murder and other crimes committed). I think it was probably a mutual thing if it was sexual, more of a sugar daddy then some old creep keeping her tied to the bed. Even then I have doubts. A commenter (that clearly knows them all) on one of the news sites says she worked for him for 6 years and is friends with his daughter. He could have been honestly trying to help out someone he considered a family friend.

    Her own mother released a statement saying they were room mates and they knew of no conflict between them. He had a girlfriend at the time he took her in. If he was using her..why not go home? The mom says they were “very close and talk several times a week”, why stay for almost 2 years if things are bad? She stole his car and dog after..when her car was in the driveway. She hid out instead of turning herself in and was caught with drugs while staying in a government park illegally. Even without the murder charge this girl would be doing jail time. She has federal charges against her for staying illegally in the park never mind the other stuff. Police have also said they have no evidence to indicate she was a victim.

    They are charging her with intentional premeditated murder and this being Kansas means she’s facing the death penalty. I find it fitting that her chest tattoo says “Only god can judge me”.

  • Taster’sChoice

    No gang just bang…. lol. Gotcha. 😉

  • Taster’sChoice

    Hehehe. That made me laugh!

  • Buffettgirl

    She’s only 19, how could she have worked for him for six years? I’m not completely condemning the man. I just get a really hinky feeling about this one and my hinky-dar is pretty damn good. It seems like a very chaotic situation and it was probably not as great an environment for her to have been in as it seems others thought it was. Clearly she has issues, but how many of them stem from her fragile lifestyle?

  • Buffettgirl

    I love your Carroll O’Connor/Archie Bunker avatar… I miss that guy. 🙂

  • Taster’sChoice

    Thanks. I was feeling snarky so he seemed appropriate! lol

  • Sudonim

    Maybe surprising to many, but not all teens are couch dwelling slobs, they can in fact have jobs (in most places from 13+). My daughter started working at A&W at 13.

    Her dad also confirmed she worked that time frame for him, doing cashier and book keeping work. There could be a million reasons for this to happen, not everything has to be sex related. Her parents seemed to be ok with the fact she was living with him and none of her family even hints towards that maybe being a reason behind this. Although I have no doubt her defense attorney will try and use this excuse to get her off.

    In all honesty whether they had a sexual relationship or not is irrelevant, she murdered him and ran, committing multiple crimes in multiple states. If this was a 19 year old male and a 52 year old female you’d all be in line to hang the kid yourselves, because it’s a some what pretty and innocent looking female it’s a whole different ball game. Being on DD you should all know pretty, young, frail looking females are just as brutally deadly as anyone else.

    I don’t by her being a victim, not even for a second and I refuse to sit and think up reasons to try and justify murder. She managed to knock him out before killing him, if she just wanted to get away from him she could have, but instead she chose to go a step farther and get all stabby. Drug addicts do things people in a normal state would never do. If she turned her self in right away would be one thing but she didn’t. She took off and tried to hide.

  • Buffettgirl

    I think you are operating under the theory that I don’t blame her. I do. I wholeheartedly blame her. I just don’t think this guy is as innocent as folks are portraying him to be. And no, if the tables were turned, and the guy was 19 and the woman was 52, I still would blame the killer about 93% and the victim about 7% for the simple reason that if it gives off a hinky vibe, it’s probably freakin’ hinky.

    I got a job at 14, but I had to have a special license issued by the State of Georgia that allowed me to. As well as parental permission, which was easy as I lived with Mom, a little harder because Dad had passed away about 18 months earlier and I didn’t have anything to prove that when I initially applied. Had to go home and get his death certificate. I just didn’t know you could work earlier than that with the exception of a family business, such as a family farm or a restaurant owned by your immediate family.

  • thebossessecretary

    Actually, it’s kind of hard for a woman to overpower a guy and kill him. I’m now considering the existence of a potential druggie boyfriend who might have done it for her.

  • Pimpino

    This is where I live and I’m just finding out about this? I’m living under a rock.

  • Pimpino

    When I start hearing more from around the campfire, I’ll post more. But from initial conversation, sounds like He was a good guy. Then again, good guy who wants tricks for favors is always a thought.

  • ultracreep

    Where I live you can’t work legally until you’re 16. I guess it varies from place to place and there might be exceptions here and there with the right paperwork.

  • Chinchillazilla

    Hey! I’m pretty, and– um, yeah. You might be right.

  • 1DireWolf

    Were you a legal adult? She was. If it was an arrangement, I’m sure he didn’t sign up to be tortured and killed. She’s hot, but no one is THAT hot.

  • Cory

    I think he was helping her in other ways, and after living the ghetto lifestyle with her hood friends she realized that sucking that old mans prick was just as bad and had enough who knows but I’m sure will will find out more on Snapped in the future

    She’s not a pig. Not at all.

    Kate Upton is about as close as you can get.

    Oh TR! Thanks for making me giggle!

  • Tonnie

    Her mother saying she’s a victim, too… how the hell does she figure that?
    Yeah, because hacking a guy up in his own home (that he shared with you free of charge) then taking off in his car (and with his dog even) — yeah that just screams “victim!” Snowflake probably had excuses made for all her bad life decisions by this obviously delusional parent.

    I don’t buy for one second that he wasn’t hitting that. Nope. Maybe she got tired of earning her rent on her back (not saying she did, saying maybe it felt to her like she did) and decided to make sure it didn’t happen again. Depending on what drugs she was into, she absolutely could’ve done it herself.

    But she was anything but a victim… her mother raised a murderer and now comes up with this to explain how that worked out for her. Unbelievable.

  • John Liozeris

    But she looks so jewish.

  • Sarah Ochocki

    Poor Oliver. The things he’s seen.

  • Mirzababa

    He was fucking her

    She wanted him to leave his wife/get married

    He said nope

    She stabbed him in the face

    What happened to the dog?!
