FBI To Help Iowa Find A Mass Burial Ground
(AmericanProsperity.com) – A woman has been claiming her father was a serial killer for four and a half decades, yet no one believed her. Investigators in the area searched the area with dogs, who found multiple locations with possible remains. Now, the FBI is stepping in to help with the investigation, which could potentially uncover a mass burial site.

Lucy Studey, 53, claims her father, Donald Dean Studey, who died at the age of 75 in 2013, killed around 70 people in western Iowa. The majority of his victims were sex workers or runaways, almost all of them white women, although the daughter claims there might have been two men as well. Kevin Aistrope, the Fremont County Sheriff, visited the alleged burial site along with Lucy Studey and dog handler Jim Peters.
Aistrope told Des Moines Register the dogs had several “hits.” The sheriff noted he contacted the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation (IDCI) for help on the case. The Omaha Police Department asserted it would lend its services to help as well. Iowa State Police are also looking into the matter, but they’re holding off for now and waiting for more evidence before taking action. Newsweek reported that one federal agent noted the FBI is communicating directly with the IDCI and Sheriff Aistrope’s office as the bureau joins the search for the mass grave site.
Lucey Studey explained how the alleged killer would force her and her siblings to transport and bury the bodies near a well, which was where the dogs found possible human remains. The daughter noted they sometimes threw the bodies into the 100-foot well and poured soil and lye on top of them.
Could Donald Dean Studey have gotten away with being one of America’s most prolific serial killers?
