19 year old Zachary Linkous
entered an alford plea to voluntary
manslaughter and a gun charge yesterday
afternoon.

That means, he acknowledges
there's enough evidence to convict him,
but does NOT admit his guilt.

Linkous shot and killed his
friend and neighbor, 15 year old Edward
Bertrand in the garage of a home in
2004.

He was originally charged with
first degree murder and scheduled to go
on trial next week.


Linkous will be sentenced by a
judge in February.

When she got out to help, a man
knocked her to the ground and stole her
vehicle but he ended up crashing the
S-U-V about 15 minutes later...and
while walking along the side of the
road HE was struck by three vehicles

and killed....

About two hours later police
found the body of a two year old girl
in the driveway of a vacant York County
home, near where the head on collision
occurred.

Police refuse to discuss whether
they believe the deaths were related...

The child's death is being
investigated as a homicide.

But this is no ordinary model.

Since the 1940's, 91-year-old
retired dentist Milton Brockmeyer's
been building a too-scale, replica of
the town.

It's 80 feet long, 20 feet wide
and fills his ENTIRE basement.

He made the buildings out of
cereal boxes and the silo's are from
old beer cans.

He captured the town as it was,
during its hey-day in the 1950's.

Brockmeyer wants the town to put
it on display so others can take a look
back into the past.
