Family Alleges That Urias Gbarjolo Was Murdered

(Pella, IA) -- The family of a University of Dubuque college student who drowned at Lake Red Rock says he was murdered.

The family of Urias Gbarjolo gathered at Lake Red Rock on Saturday, at the spot where the 21-year-old from Johnston's body was found over Memorial Day Weekend.

Gbarjolo's father says Urias' neck had bruises and there was a bloody wound on his head.

He also says the stomach was flat, not filled with water like a drowning victim.

Autopsy results have yet to be shared by the State Medical Examiner and Marion County officials, according to the Des Moines Register.
