That charge was later dismissed and her father’s death remains unsolved.
“She convinced me that she had absolutely nothing to do with the death of her father,” says Klein. “Nor did her son.”
Nathan Carman remains under investigation in his mother’s disappearance after he says his boat sank a hundred miles off shore.
“It took me a few minutes to just realize where I was, what was happening.” Carman told an ABC reporter. “I was no longer on the boat where was I? What was going on?”
He says he never saw his mother but was able to swim to the life raft with a bag containing food rations, a water desalinator, sleeping bags, and flares.
We asked Klein if Linda Carman had ever expressed any concern about her son. “Oh absolutely not,” he answers.
