Gilmore has been charged with first diploma homicide. Within the charging paperwork, police lay out their case. The 23-year-old apparently had despatched a Snapchat message to a good friend of an ex-girlfriend threatening he’d “be lookin just like the physique they discovered outdoors Mitchell boy.” He allegedly typed that the sound an individual makes when stabbed within the neck “makes me laborious.” He additionally requested:
“Wanna see a useless physique?”
This was when solely the cranium had been discovered. The neck stabbing will need to have matched up with what the remainder of the stays instructed them as a result of police referred to as in Gilmore for an interview final Friday, August 19. In line with the charging docs, his story was inconsistent, altering twice:
“In the course of the interview, Gilmore described being current within the park the day that the cranium was found and acknowledged that he spoke with regulation enforcement who had been current on the scene.”
Returning to the scene of a criminal offense? That actually occurs?? The doc continued:
“Gilmore supplied an correct description of the cranium. Gilmore initially attributed his data of the discovered stays to media stories and data round city however climbed [sic] that he didn’t know particular details about the stays, or concerning the lady who the stays had been in the end recognized as being.”
Ultimately, nevertheless, he instructed them about “selecting up a lady close to the Cerro Gordon County Jail” on April 6, 2021 whereas “on the jail for a court docket listening to.” Bradbury had apparently been there as properly, having been arrested for trespassing. She was final seen leaving with an unknown man.
In line with investigators, Gilmore admitted “he took her to a home within the southern a part of Mason Metropolis” however claimed she “remained on the home” whereas he left for work in St. Ansgar — then he mentioned he went residence after work and didn’t return to the realm. However as soon as they knew what to search for, it was straightforward for detectives to reality test his story. The docs clarify:
“GPS information obtained from Gilmore’s Fb account confirmed that on the night of April 6, 2021, Gilmore’s Fb account was lively in an space northwest of Greenbelt River Path Park at roughly 7:21 pm and lively in an space southeast of the Greenbelt River Path Park at roughly 8:37 pm, earlier than information present his account lively again within the St. Angsar space.”
The Greenbelt River Path Park space. The place the cranium was discovered.
Police received a warrant to go looking Gilmore’s residence and located a drawing of “a satanic goat’s head within the form of a pentagram with what seemed to be blood spatters drawn on it.” Creepy!
Clearly being into satanic imagery, and even truly belonging to the Church of Devil or different organizations prefer it for that matter, is not proof of wrongdoing. Loads of very peaceable people are into that stuff. However this isn’t Satanic Panic we’re speaking about, not a West Memphis 3 state of affairs. On the drawing was precise proof. Per the report:
“Written on the drawing, subsequent to the goat head, had been the numbers ‘o4-06,’ ‘0590,’ and ‘43.3, -92.8.’”
Authorities didn’t must strive laborious to decipher the numbers. “04-06” was the final date Angela Bradbury was seen. The latter numbers appeared “to coincide with an abbreviated GPS coordinate for Greenbelt River Path Park.”
That plus the messages concerning the physique? And mendacity to police about his alibi? It’s loads of cause for police to consider Gilmore is their killer. Chilling stuff. See extra on the case from native Des Moines affiliate KCCI (under):
