Dead woman found near Walker was mother of girls in Iowa alert

WATERLOO (AP) — Authorities say a woman whose body was found near Walker in Linn County was the mother of three girls who were the subjects of an Amber Alert.

The girls were found in the Waterloo area about an hour after the alert was issued around 10:15 p.m. Wednesday by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation. Authorities have been looking for a 36-year-old man suspected of being their abductor.

The investigation started around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday, after the woman’s body was found in the middle of a road. Authorities say the death was suspicious and that the woman had several injuries.

The woman’s name hasn’t been released. Online court records don’t list any new charges against the man.
