MARSHALLTOWN, Ia. — A missing 13-year-old boy was found dead five days into the search for the Iowa teen, police said Sunday.
Corey Brown’s body was found in a secluded area on the west side of the city, police said in a news release. The police said that no criminal activity was suspected but that many scenarios were still being investigated. The temperature dipped below zero three straight days after Brown went missing.
Brown was last seen Tuesday night, when he left his parents’ home on Marshalltown’s south side after having a “disciplinary discussion” in which his phone was taken away, Police Chief Michael Tupper said at a news conference Thursday.
“The community obviously is pretty devastated,” said Marshalltown native Jonathan Bizios on Sunday. “I think the majority of us were expecting some better news. I guess that’s kind of human nature — to think the best.”
Bizios, the operator of the Minuteman Inc. print shop in Marshalltown, made more than 1,000 fliers featuring Brown’s face that were plastered around town last week.
