Jeremy Lindstrom held a birthday party for his five-year-old son sometime on Sunday August 12th. Within hours of the photos taken below, the man in the baby-blue Carolina tar heels shirt [he seems to be leaning into the shot] would murder the two little girls right beside him.
It would take three months before he u-turned on his dubious confession of August 15th. In exchange for avoiding a death sentence himself, he admitted to their murders in court – in tears – on November 6th for the first time.
Below is the back garden of the Lindstrom home in Erie, Colorado. Bella is right at the back wearing a purple summer dress. Celeste is out of picture.
August 12 was a hot, windy day, with temperatures hitting 91,4°F [33 °C]. Since it was clear all day, it’s difficult to tell when this photo was taken.
Many thanks to Jane Bos for providing these images. Bos is a member of the TCRS group, and a former cop currently based in the Netherlands.
