I wonder if there is any difference in meaning between the two sentences below.

1. The ferryboat links the island to the mainland.

2. The ferryboat links the island with the mainland.

or

1. He is connected to the murder case.

2. He is connected with the murder case.

I really wonder... so frustrated... ㅠ..ㅠ help please.....

    I think the ferryboat links the island with the mainland.
    The new toll bridge links the island to the mainland.
    This is perhaps a very subjective distinction.

    I'm not at all sure about the murder case, sorry.
