According to KETV, police in Iowa are looking into a woman’s claims that she assisted her father in disposing of dozens of bodies.
Deputies have been in contact with Donald Studey’s daughter for the past year, according to Fremont County Sheriff Kevin Aistrope.
“We’re looking into it right now, and who wouldn’t?” According to Aistrope.
According to Newsweek, she claims her father, who has been dead since 2013, murdered 50 to 70 people over a three-decade period.
On Monday, Lucy Studey did not return KETV’s calls.
“All we have is a woman who came forward and told us about bodies in a well,” Aistrope explained.
The sheriff stated that the scene off Green Hollow Road is not a crime scene because no bodies or bones have been discovered, only cadaver dog hits.
“We did bring a couple of cadaver dogs with us. Cavader dogs peered inside or around the area. And they did indicate the location. I won’t say it was directly over the well, but they did indicate in the area, “According to Aistrope.
According to the sheriff, Donald Studey and his family have no ties to the Fremont County property. Inside, a woman refused to answer KETV’s questions and asked them to leave.
Fremont County is also being investigated by the FBI and the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation.
“They’d asked us, along with the FBI, to help with the investigation. And, you know, we’re happy to do so and try to provide manpower and resources “Mitch Mortvedt of the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation confirmed this.
In the coming weeks, officials will search the identified Loess Hills area with additional cadaver dogs and tools such as metal detectors and ground-penetrating radar to prove or disprove allegations of mostly sex workers and transients from Omaha buried underground.
“It’s a big mission for a small county,” said Aistrope.
