Why would Faulkner have used a non-linear timeline?
? The contorted plot line is perfect for a mystery (which this story is, to some degree): like all mysteries, it withholds information till the very end. The nonlinear plot also parallels Emily's confused state of mind: she can't distinguish past from present--form following content.
