The Fisherman & the Flirt: The Death of Kent Leppink

In Episode 359

In 2006, 33-year-old Mechele Linehan was visited by the Alaska police regarding a 1996 murder.  Back then, Mechele had been an exotic dancer.  The murder victim was a former client named Kent Leppink.  But, in 2006, Mechele was a professional woman married to a physician and raising a young daughter in Washington state. Her arrest was shocking to the people in her community.

Join us at the quiet end for The Fisherman & the Flirt. Mechele had been dancing at The Great Alaskan Bush Company for only a few months when she met Kent Leppink. He was infatuated with Mechele and soon told people that she was his fiancée, but Mechele said that they were never engaged and were not in a romantic relationship. There are many sides to this story, so let’s dive in and try to separate fact from fiction.
