Missing Iowa Student Mollie Tibbetts Found Dead, Undocumented Immigrant Confesses | TODAY
Iowa Student Mollie Tibbetts Has Been Found Dead After Nearly a Month of Searching
The body of University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts nearly a month after her disappearance, the reported earlier today. The 20-year-old went missing on July 18 while she was on a run in her hometown of Brooklyn, Iowa.
Authorities in charge of the investigation had gone through Mollie's phone, social media, and even her Fitbit to try to find anything that could lead them to her. They also interviewed nearly 1,500 people. Investigators had narrowed down their search to five different locations: a carwash, Mollie's boyfriend's home (he was out of town when she disappeared, and she was house sitting), a truck stop, and two farms.
Mollie's last known communication was a Snapchat message to her boyfriend the night of her disappearance. He texted her the next morning but she didn't answer.
The cause of death has not been released and police have not given the name of a suspect, but her family and boyfriend have been cleared of suspicion, per the WHO-DT, an NBC affiliate.
“Mollie has the biggest heart of anyone we ever knew,” her brother told theDes Moines Register. “She was never shy . . . She had room in her heart for everyone.”
Her family, friends, and volunteers had been searching for her for a month. "It’s frustrating. It’s powerless. We’re racking our brains, thinking what can we think of to tell the investigators,” Kim Calderwood, Mollie's aunt, told the Des Moines Register. “It’s the worst thing — to want to fix something you can’t fix.”
Mollie was involved in theater, ran cross-country, and was studying psychology just like her mother had. The 0,000 in reward money for information about her disappearance will now go towards anyone who can help find the people responsible for her death.
