Died July 27, 2008
Linda Kraeger, age 61, was attending a church musical at Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in Knoxville, Tennessee. An armed man started shooting during the program. Linda Kraeger was one of two people who died before the armed man was overpowered by church members.
In an article on the VolunteerTV.Com web site, Linda Kraeger is described as a "long time English instructor." An Associated Press article on the Kansas City Star web site says over 1,00 people attended a memorial service for the two murdered victims of the shooting.
A CNN news article reports Jim Adkisson told the police "all liberals should be killed" and admitted he shot people at the church. The authorities are treating the murder as a hate crime.
