WCBS News is reporting the apparent murder yesterday of Linda Stein, one time co-manager of the Ramones, who in later years became known (and was profiled by this writer) as a realtor to the stars. Amusing and abrasive in equal measure, Stein was a unique and special New York character. The city is poorer without her, though my guess is the tabloid stories to come will be more than a little rich, as sources are saying police favor the theory that she was killed by someone she knew. UPDATE: Richard J. Esposito of ABC News posts the latest on Linda.
