On July 18th, 2018 a University of Iowa student would disappear, seemingly without a trace while she was home for the summer in her hometown of Brooklyn, Iowa. For a month, police and everyone else were at a complete and utter loss as to what had happened to this young lady and there seemed to be no leads, no evidence and no trace of where, how and who else was involved in the disappearance. She sent a message to her boyfriend, went for a job and never returned home. This case is one that was solved because of technology, in the form of CCTV cameras. Today we will talk about what happened, who was behind it and the fallout when the truth was uncovered.

In our final discussion of outer space, we discuss dark matter and the possibility of worm holes. While both of these incredible anomalies are super hard to find, we have certain clues that point us in the right direction. On the other hand, we are becoming more aware of tragic events that happen to such great people. The disappearance of Mollie Tibbetts just goes to show anything can happen even in a small town of Iowa. Support the show
Die Stadt Brooklyn in Iowa, USA, ist eine kleine Gemeinde in der nähe der Route 6. Von Anwohnern wird der kleine Ort die "Community of Flags", die Community der Flaggen, genannt. Es leben nur knapp 1.500 Menschen dort und für die Anwohner ist es normal die Türen nicht abzuschließen, denn niemand glaubte daran, dass dort mal ein Verbrechen passieren könnte. Doch an einem schicksalhaften Abend im Juli 2018 änderte sich alles. Quellen: https://www.reddit.com/r/TrueCrime/comments/pmig4n/on_july_18_2018_20yearold_mollie_tibbetts/
Big Story Roundup – The Killing of Mollie Tibbetts Murder Trial and Free Britney
Court TV Podcast
For our 100th episode host Vinnie Politan and Court TV’s Ted Rowlands will cover two of the biggest legal stories of the week. Up first is a major update in The Killing of Mollie Tibbetts Murder Trial. Her convicted killer Cristhian Bahena Rivera was back in court for what was supposed to be his sentencing, but instead that was delayed in order to his defense team to make an argument for a new trial due to some new information. Two people independently came forward and implicated another man in the murder of Tibbetts, so his defense is asking for a new trial and the state’s help in investigating those claims. Meanwhile, Britney Spears was back in court in her continuing fight to end the conservatorship. Should Britney be allowed to have full control of her life back? If not, why? Ted and Vinnie will dig into all of it plus preview the live trial currently on Court TV – SC v. Nathaniel Rowland –the Mistaken Rideshare Murder Trial. Get the latest updates on CourtTV and CourtTV.com and tune in to see Vinnie Politan and the entire Court TV team review each day’s testimony on Closing Arguments weeknights from 8pm to 11pm.
