Linnea Lindberg’s Death
January 12, 1994

A deadly message: "Call the coroner"

The note that court officer Robert Beardsley found taped to the locked front door of a mobile home in Gaines Township Tuesday morning was ominous: "Call the coroner’s office."

Beardsley, assisted by a Kent County sheriff’s deputy and two state troopers, was serving an eviction notice about 10:30 a.m. to Linnea Lindberg at 147 Piedmont Drive SE in the Southwest Village Mobile Home Park.

The officers’ worst concerns were confirmed when they entered the trailer and found two bodies in a back bedroom.
Lindberg, 41, and her live-in boyfriend, Star Arthur Quist, 41, both were dead from gunshot wounds.

"I thought the worst," Beardsley remembers thinking as he stood at the door.
"When the back door had been pried open the troopers entered the mobile home, and I went around to the front where the deputy was".   "I’ve been in this business for 17 years, and nothing like this ever happened."The shootings are being treated as a murder-suicide with autopsies being performed today.

The couple left several notes for family. One dated December 26 read, "who ever finds this". It is believed that Quist killed Ms. Lindberg and then himself. The note makes it clear that her death was murder by consent.

Lindberg had lived in the park since 1990 but had been in arrears to the park since August.
In the past few months friends of the couple said they had been giving away their possessions such as antique dolls and furniture. The neighbors were concerned by their behavior and check on them. The couple had been together for about 10 years. Quist hadn’t been working but Ms. Lindberg was a secretary at a local law firm until a year ago.
