Mollie Tibbetts became a household name last month when she went missing from a small town in Iowa. Sadly, her body was recently discovered and an illegal immigrant was arrested and charged with her murder.
Now, a sad story is being reported from Iowa concerning the case of Mollie Tibbetts. According to reports, graffiti and robocalls are being used as ways to attack the Hispanic community in Iowa.
Criminals have even spray painted signs and walls with phrases like "Deport Illegals" and other hate messaged. The robocalls that have circulated the community have been traced back to a white-supremacist hate group.
"KCCI reported the calls came from a group called 'The Road to Power.' That is a white supremacist and anti-Semitic video podcast hosted by Scott Rhodes of Idaho, who also purportedly targeted a black gubernatorial candidate in Florida with robocalls," according to reports.
The local mayor has since spoken out about the events. It is truly sad to see such racist hate being spread while everyone should be mourning Mollie's death and praying for her family.
"These actions are unfortunate and not consistent with Des Moines' spirit of compassion," Mayor Frank Cownie said. "Such actions have no place in our city."
