Monsters Among Us: Norman Cadmus killed Kevin Beam and Linda Arnold in their Linglestown, PA home; Sentenced to life in prison

remembering the victimsFrom Norman Cadmus’ appeal: This case arises out of a brutal double murder that took place in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, 14 years ago, in March of 1996. On March 6, 1996, police and fire officials responded to a suspicious fire inside a residence at 1052 North Mountain Road, in Lower Paxton Township. Inside the home first responders uncovered a grisly scene-a man and a woman, dead, both victims of homicide. One of the victims of this killing, Kevin Beam, had been beaten about the head and strangled, and had died as a result of manual strangulation and blunt force trauma. The second victim, a woman, Linda Arnold, had been shot in the head. Police determined that, following this double murder, a fire had been deliberately set at the residence, in an apparent effort to mask the brutal killing of these two victims.

Acting on this grisly discovery, police then launched a five-year investigation into this double murder. In the course of this investigation, police identified the Petitioner, Norman Cadmus as a possible suspect and in January 2001 questioned Cadmus, a casual acquaintance of the Arnold family, regarding his knowledge of this dual homicide. Under police questioning Cadmus confessed to involvement in these murders. According to Cadmus’ confession, on March 6, 1996, he accompanied another man, William Stephens, also known as Billy Lightfeather, to the home of Linda Arnold, 1052 North Mountain Road, to collect a debt Arnold owed Stephens.

Cadmus claimed that he initially remained inside the car while Stephens entered the home, but then heard the sounds of a violent confrontation inside the residence. Entering the home, Cadmus stated that he came upon one of the victims, Kevin Beam, locked in a violent struggle with Stephens, who was wielding a knife. Cadmus acknowledged to police that he joined in that struggle, grabbing a bottle and striking Beam repeatedly on the head and upper torso with the broken bottle as Stephens slashed his victim with a knife. After Beam collapsed unconscious, Cadmus related that Stephens wrapped a plastic bag around Beam’s head and asphyxiated him. According to Cadmus’ confession, Stephens then sought out Linda Arnold, and killed her, shooting her in the head. Having participated in this fashion in the double murder of Arnold and Beam, Cadmus then watched as Stephens poured kerosene and paint thinner throughout the house, and set it ablaze in an effort to conceal this killing.
