Fox News: Missing Iowa Student Mollie Tibbetts Found Dead
SMITH: "Two sources are now telling Fox News Mollie Tibbetts has been found dead. Her body has been found. The 20-year-old rising sophomore at the University of Iowa, as you remember, vanished the evening of July 18th. She was jogging in the rural farming town of Brooklyn, a close-knit community of just about 1500 residents. As you can remember, it has been weeks now where that community has come together. Law enforcement officials, both local and federal level, have been searching for this missing girl who was last seen while she was jogging. We have had her father on this program on multiple occasions. Her brother, her boyfriend have all been part of this search. He had just recently, in the past day or so, reluctantly returned — her dad returned back to where he lives in California as the search had continued. He said very reluctantly, I’m being told, 'I need to do this,' as the search continued. 'We call this sort of a halftime, a break,' he had said. And now this news this morning per two sources telling Fox News that her body has been found. Mollie Tibbetts, the 20-year-old rising sophomore at the University of Iowa. Her disappearance was completely out of character for her. She had been staying at her boyfriend’s home while he had been traveling. He was working on construction about 100 miles away from that home. She was dog-sitting at the time, her boyfriend said."
