Iowa: Grocery Store Employee Missing for 10 Years Found Behind Store’s Cooler

Epoch Times:

Workers removing shelves and coolers from a former No Frills Supermarket in Council Bluffs, Iowa, in January discovered a body behind one of them.

The remains were recently identified as those of Larry Ely Murillo-Moncada, a former employee who had been reported missing November 28, 2009.

Investigators used his parents’ DNA to confirm the identity, and the clothes matched the description of his attire at the time he was reported missing, according to Council Bluffs Police Capt. Todd Weddum.

Murillo-Moncada’s parents reported their son missing after he became upset and ran out of their home. They told police at the time that he was acting irrationally, possibly because of medication he was taking, Weddum said. more here

    “His body was there for ten years and nobody every smelled it?”

    …well, the place WAS named “No Frills” so maybe they considered little things like ‘cleaning’ and ‘working refrigeration’ to be a “Frill”…

    “No Frills” customers thought it was just the meat counter.

  3. A little known secret about Iowa is that it has more than it’s fair share of strange people. I used to live across the Missouri River from Council Bluffs and spent a lot of time there.

  4. ” possibly because of medication he was taking, ” You’re supposed to put ethanol in your cars not drink it.

  5. Larry Ely Murillo-Moncada.

    Murillo-Moncada’s parents reported their son missing after he became upset and ran out of their home.

    Is it unreasonable to suspect Larry’s parents were “undocumented” ergo, why bother the police and pursue the issue?

  6. …the thing about this is, that the smell really may NOT have been noticed, depending on what the store was doing and whether it was operating at the time.

    …There was a food plant near here that had gone under due to a dispute between the guy running the plant and his sisters, who actually owned it and the land, something about a third-generation inheritance. Anyway, all the creditors got pissed off and started selling assets, and the company SNS works for wanted to buy a spiral freezer out of it. The building owners let us cut a hole in the side of the building to pull it out, and we got it broke loose from its mounts and moved to the hole, only to find out the truck would be late.

    This gave us time to explore.

    We found the place had died a thousand deaths, in that you could go from room to room and see progressive dates that Government regulators had enough of this guy’s crap and tagged out first one asset, then another, for not being able to make safe food. We got to the freezer, however, and the room it was in didn’t stink, but we opened the door…

    …and found the 200 pound tote of beef that had been in a plastic bag in the turned-off freezer for God knew how long, with the bag swollen and the smell EVERYWHERE. Some guys puked, and everyone left post-haste and slammed the door.

    Having smelled ACTUAL dead bodies and KNOWN that’s what I was smelling, I can tell you with some authority that the smell…is NOT that different. Dead, rotting bodies smell BETTER, if anything.

    …the point is that there are a number of scenarios that could have masked this, contained it, or simply people were not there while the rotting process was at its height. They may also have ascribed it to rotting meat, dead cats, deceased mice, gross neighbors, etc., all because “dead boy” is NOT your FIRST thought.

    So it could be legit.

    Or it could be Mafia. We don’t know enough for sure.

    …post script on that food plant: while it died in stages, they evidently just shut down one day completely while it still had employees. We found personal property in the lockers, festering crap in the toilets, and even an apparently used and currently ghastly tampon floating in the ladies’.

    …People don’t always care about abandoned structures, so all SORTS of things get missed…

  7. “Say man, you know that fooking Larry took a powder after we all pitched in for a 12 pack. They were on sale down at No Frills. Dude beat feet on 6 bucks?”

  8. It was No Frills latest feature – the Smelly Deli featuring low cost illegally imported meat.

    “What about the flies??”

    …10 years ago? Barry was “president”. No one would have thought flies everywhere were odd at THAT time, just Satan’s helpers keeping a compound eye on things for him so he could evaluate the work of his favorite Halfrican…

  10. If it was in the same room as the ‘break room’, none of his co-workers looked up there out of curiosity? Yikes!

    “Officers contacted family members, other law enforcement agencies, nearby detention centers and even the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency—he had been deported to Honduras before making his way back to the United States—but received no information regarding his possible whereabouts.”

    If the boy had stayed in Honduras, he wouldn’t be generic jerky right now.
    Some people just run towards trouble.

  11. This story like most stories is probably half a story and half wrong.
    I may be jaded but fake news and lazy reporters have done that to me.

  12. Revelation 20:13
    The sea gave up its dead, and Death and Hades gave up their dead, and each one was judged according to his deeds.


    yer welcome

  13. Sometimes it’s good to put down our political swords and remember our humanity. I think about the poor parents these past 10 years not knowing anything about their missing son. I have a son.
