Episode Maternal Instincts
Status Arrested

Kyle Silver was the lover and killer of Linda Frandsen, who appeared in Maternal Instincts.


At some point he had gotten married and had kids, but in 1985 he started an affair with married Linda who he had become enamored by her beauty, later saying that "She was so sexy it was silly." For him, after she had a miscarriage it made his life easier for him. He later ended the affair due to his own kids, but secretly never forgot about her. Deciding to leave his wife, he hired a private investigator to find her so he could be with her.

Finally in 1989, Kyle tracked her to Philly, knowing all about her kidnapping of Bobby Gordon. He came to her house one night unannounced and revealed his intention to run away with her, warning her he knew her secret. Linda adamantly refused and insulted him, causing him to strike her. He then wrestled a knife from her hand and stabbed her three times in a rage, right in front of Bobby. Bloodied, he left for Washington D.C.
