The woman who jumped to her death from her Manhattan high-rise with her dog in hand has been identified as Linda Holston, a recent transplant to the Big Apple.
Holston, 60, moved to Manhattan in 2017 from New Mexico, where she acted in community theater. In New York, she studied acting at the William Esper Studio, completing the program in 2019, according to an online profile on Backstage.com.
The profile described her as being 5 feet tall with brown hair and blue eyes. She graduated from the Pacific Conservatory of the Performing Arts in California in 1981.
