COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa — A decomposing body discovered earlier this year behind a cooler in a shuttered Iowa supermarket belongs to a Council Bluffs man who had been missing for more than a decade, authorities said Monday.
According to the Des Moines Register, investigators believe that Larry Ely Murillo-Moncada, who worked at the No Frills Supermarket when he vanished in 2009, died in the store after falling off a cooler and getting stuck behind it.
Murillo-Moncada's parents, who filed a missing-person report Nov. 28 of that year, said their son, then 25, was upset when he fled from their home during a snowstorm, authorities said. They never saw him again.
