Mollie Tibbetts's Father Lashes Out At Donald Trump Jr. For Blaming Her Death On Democrats

By Collin Gossel

On Saturday, September 1, Rob Tibbetts, father of slain University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts, released an Op-Ed in the Des Moines Register lashing out at figures like Don Trump Jr. for using her death to advance their political causes. 

While Mollie's father was "grateful" to those who respected her family's wish to keep her death apolitical, he lashed out at people like Don Jr. who couldn't stop themselves from using a grieving family to make a point. He wrote: 

Sadly, others have ignored our request. They have instead chosen to callously distort and corrupt Mollie’s tragic death to advance a cause she vehemently opposed.
