However, Allen Ross was not aware of the fate that he was about to meet. The case of Allen Ross was explored in the show Dateline in the episode “Searching For Allen.” If you are willing to know what exactly happened to Allen Ross, you have come to the right platform. Here, we are going to discuss everything related to Allen Ross that you must know about this case.
How Did Allen Ross Die?
Before delving into the death of Allen Ross directly, let us first get to know who Allen Ross was. Ross was a rising filmmaker from Chicago, Illinois. Ross was not as famous as the Hollywood directors are, but had he lived a long life, he would probably have been famous. Allen Ross was mainly known for his film Grandfather Trilogy. The man was talented enough and wanted to thrive in this industry. Nevertheless, he could not because he met with his death untimely. Note that Allen Ross had an immense amount of love for the city of Chicago.
This love for the city took a turn when Allen Ross fell in love with Linda Greene. Along with Greene, Allen Ross had a sudden shift in his decisions. He decided to leave the city of Chicago and move to Oklahoma instead. It was then that his friends started to witness some change in him. They were not getting good vibes from this whole “shifting to a new place” scenario, but they kept their mouths shut because they did not want to hurt Ross. Also, although they found the situation at hand odd, they did not find it extremely nerve-wracking.
After Ross shifted to Oklahoma with Greene, he used to send postcards to his friends occasionally. His friends did not ever try to discern the little enigmatic messages that Ross was writing along with the postcards. They did not think there was something wrong with them. After moving to Oklahoma, Ross later decided to move to Cheyenne, Wyoming. It was during this time that Allen stopped sending postcards. It was past November, but his friends and family did not receive any message from him. After Christmas was gone, his close associates were sure that something was wrong with Allen Ross.
How Allen Ross Was Found?
After December 1995, passed by, during the new year, that is 1996, the Cheyenne Police Station received a call from Linda Green during the month of March. The call was from none other than Denis Greene, who was the ex-husband of Linda Greene. He informed the police that Allen Ross had been murdered by his love interest, that is Linda. He also informed the police that Linda Greene went as far as burying the body in the basement of their house in Cheyenne.
The police, without wasting any time, went to the said location to search the house for Allen Ross’ body. However, at that time, the search did not provide any fruitful results. The police did not find any remains of Allen Ross. Even if the police did not find any remains, Allen Ross’ family members did not stop in their way. Instead, they kept on searching for Allen. They even shot the entire process so that they did not miss any information. In 2000, they found something that would prove itself crucial for the case. They urged the police to search the house once again. Allen Ross’ body was finally discovered during the final search. His body was buried under concrete.
The death of Allen Ross was traumatizing for his friends and family. Soon after the body was discovered, the police sent it for an autopsy. It was revealed that Allen Ross was shot which led to his death. What was even more disturbing was that his body was castrated after he had died. The body was buried there for about four years. It can be said that the killer planned the murder and got rid of the weapon real quickly.
Where Is The Killer Now?
After a lot of investigations and stories full of lies, the police finally came to the conclusion that Linda Greene had been the killer of Allen Ross. She even got the help of her friend Julia Williams. It was proved that Linda had the gun with which Allen Ross was shot and that she was mentally unstable. Linda Greene is not alive anymore. She died of liver failure in 2002. However, Julia Willaims received a sentence of 24-36 months in prison because she helped Linda Greene in the murder.
