On the night of October 31, 1978, Lynda originally planned to meet up with Annie and Paul at the Wallace house for a night of fooling around and sex. Lynda doesn't know, that Annie was killed by Michael Myers. After Lynda has sex with her boyfriend Bob Simms, he goes downstairs to get beer. He is attacked by Michael, then pinned up against the wall by a knife. Michael then disguises himself as a ghost with a sheet over his head and Bob's glasses on. Lynda thinks it is Bob, but, after teasing him and flashing him her breasts, he remains quiet. She gets up to call Laurie to see, if she knows, where Annie or Paul are. Michael walks to Lynda, while she is still on the phone, and just when Laurie answers, Michael grabs the phone cord and wraps it around Lynda's neck, strangling her.

Laurie can hear Lynda squealing for help, but thinks its another prank call. Lynda falls to the floor and dies. Laurie later discovers her body along with those of Annie and Bob.
