Lynnette Culver is currently the subject of a Pocatello, Idaho cold case investigation. It is believed that Lynnette was abducted and killed by notorious serial killer, Ted Bundy, as he confessed to her murder two days prior to his own execution on January 24,1989.

At the painfully young age of 12, Lynnette went missing in May of 1975. Although a police and volunteer search was conducted, and many years later Ted Bundy stated her body was left in a nearby river, fitting the description of the Snake River, her body was never found.

Currently Lynnette has no grave site nor a memorial honoring her memory. The purpose of this crowd funding is to obtain enough money to build a public bench made of marble, engraved with her name, date of birth, date gone missing, and a couple of her drawings. The family would like to have it installed either on the grounds of the middle school from where she went missing, or placed in a nearby public park where she played. Please help us give Lynnette’s family and community a place where they can spend some time honoring her memory, and that is dedicated to this young girl who was taken from us far too soon.

All proceeds will be transferred to a trust fund set up in Lynnette’s name by Crystal Douglas with Idaho Cold Case Files. All construction, engraving, placement and installation will be overseen by the family of Lynnette Culver. Any unused funds will go to the charity of the Culver’s choosing.

Rest sound, Lynnette.

WE DID IT!!! Thank you so much to all who donated and shared, coming together for what many of us feel is a wonderful cause. Thanks to all of you who rallied together to provide a quiet and reflective space for Lynnette, giving her family and friends a place where they can spend some time with their thoughts, paying respects to this beautiful girl Lynnette and the impact that she made in this world in the short amount of time she was given. Rest peacefully sweet girl!!

Everything looks like a go at this point! We should be set to have a ribbon-cutting ceremony of sorts on July 31st (Lynnette’s birthday). All who wish to join us are welcome! the bench will be placed in Ross Park in Pocatello on that day! We will keep this page updated and will probably leave the GFM up in case anybody wants to donate extra to help with getting Lynnette’s family from Boise to her family to Pocatello. Again, thank you all so much for making this possible! -Paula, Nancy, Crystal, Chris and Tom, et. al.

Due to personal reasons, Lynnette’s family won’t be able to be present for the original reveal date. They have decided to reveal the installed bench on Lynnette’s birthday, July 31st of this year. In case you were planning on being there, we wanted to let you know as soon as possible. As usual, we’ll keep you updated on any changes there may be. Again, thanks to all who have contributed. The outpouring of support and love is inspiring!
