Case Summary compiled by Jody Ewing

Paul Michael Brule, a 30-year-old Council Bluffs, Iowa man who received $10,000 weekly payouts from lottery winnings, was slain in his Sixth Avenue home in the early morning hours on Saturday, July 25, 1998, and his death poorly staged to mimic a suicide.

Brule’s father, Michael Brule, and sisters Michelle (Brule) Stephens and Jamie Brule discovered his lifeless body behind the 2118 Sixth Avenue home after finding his motorcycle out front on its side.

Paul Brule was found slumped against a tree in the back yard of this 2118 Sixth Avenue home in Council Bluffs on July 25, 1998.

Brule normally parked the bike against the house in the home’s back yard.

The three found Brule’s body slumped against a tree — his knees touching the ground — with a nylon clothesline rope tied around his neck.

Michael Brule reported the incident at 10:54 a.m.

Brule wasn’t breathing when Council Bluffs police arrived, and officials determined time of death as sometime between 1:45 and 7 a.m.

Investigators found no notes left behind or anything else to indicate the death could be ruled a suicide with any certainty.

The night before the murder

Brule seldom parted with family members or friends without saying “I love you.”

The week before his slaying, he’d lost his job, but the weekly lotto payments had already enabled him to make life better for his parents, three siblings and grandmother, all of whom resided in Council Bluffs.

On Friday night, Brule’s younger sister, Jamie, sat on the neighbor’s porch across the street, babysitting the neighbor’s children. Brule rode up to the house on his bike, carrying a bottle of beer, and gave her a big smile. He was going to the home of friends Wendall Vincent and Troy Petersen, he said, to have some drinks.

“Be good. I love you,” he said to Jamie before driving away.

Brule and his brother, Shane Brule, spent part of the evening drinking with Vincent and Petersen.

On weekends, Brule’s sister, Michelle, took over their father’s paper route, with Paul Brule, Shane, or Jamie usually accompanying her. That particular weekend, it was “one of the boys’ turns to go,”Jamie (Brule) Reed told Iowa Cold Cases in personal correspondence sent in June 2015.

Around 11 p.m. Friday night, Michelle went to Vincent and Petersen’s home to get one of her brothers, but said both were too drunk to go with her. Michelle told them to have fun and that she would do the paper route on her own.

Brule decided to leave his friends’ home around midnight, telling both them and his brother he loved them and would see them the following day. Shane Brule would end up spending the night with the friends.

Jamie arrived home around 1:30 a.m. Saturday, and didn’t see anyone at the house except her dad, who was sound asleep. She went to bed.

Michelle finished the paper route and arrived home at about 4:30 a.m. She looked around for “the boys,” but neither appeared to be home, so she went to bed as well.

Later Saturday morning, Jamie, Michelle, and their father found Paul Brule’s body slumped against a tree about 10 to 15 feet from the home’s back door.

Council Bluffs police reported his death “may have been a suicide,” and news about Brule’s death quietly slipped from the news.

‘Please Help’

Though convinced Paul Brule hadn’t taken his own life, his family had no further information until a close associate recently came forward to provide specific details about what really happened the night of Brule’s death. (Tipster’s contact information on file and available to law enforcement personnel.)

According to the tipster, an individual named C.B. (full name and contact info on file for law enforcement) punched an intoxicated Brule in the head in the early morning hours on the back porch of Brule’s Sixth Avenue home.

The source said when Brule fell, his head landed across the threshold of the back porch’s sliding glass door. C.B. then repeatedly slammed the sliding door — striking Brule’s head and neck between the door and its frame — until Brule’s neck appeared broken and his body lifeless.

Two other men, the source said, helped C.B. drag Brule’s body into the home’s back yard, where they wrapped a nylon clothesline rope around Brule’s neck before placing him, on his knees, slumped against a tree in what they hoped would be ruled a suicide by hanging.

Armed with the new information about her brother’s death, Jamie Reed contacted Iowa Cold Cases with more details, ending her letter with a simple plea: “Please Help.”

James Clark Nicoll, a 52-year-old baker from Perth, Scotland, who emigrated to Council Bluffs, Iowa with his wife and five children in 1871, was found dead Tuesday morning, March 17, 1885, lying frozen in about 15 inches of water in a Tenth Avenue Council Bluffs ditch that led into Indian Creek.

A successful businessman, Nicoll was known as a well respected community member.

Pottawattamie County in Iowa

He’d left his home about 8 p.m. the previous evening, Mary Lou McGinn reported in a (Council Bluffs) Nonpareil article published August 4, 2014. When found, McGinn said, Nicoll was “without hat, shoes or stockings.”

Despite an investigation, the mystery surrounding Nicoll’s death was never solved.

Coming to America

Nicoll’s first bakery store in Council Bluffs, City Bakery, was located on the north side of Broadway across from the Ogden Hotel, and the family lived above the business.

Business thrived, and in the summer of 1884, Nicoll built a new building at 130 West Broadway, where he moved his home and business.

McGinn said of the business district’s history:

The 100 Block was the business district of the early Mormon settlement in the valley of Indian Creek. The area was known as “Miller’s Hollow.” The stores, mostly outfitting stores built of wood, were destroyed by fire in 1853-54 and subsequently replaced by brick buildings.

The building erected by James Nicoll replaced a one-story bakery. The nomination of the district to the National Register of Historic Places notes the elaborate pressed metal cornice on top with a simpler metal cornice above the storefront, and the second-floor tri-partite windows with decorative stone or pre-cast hoodmolds (see photo). The original entry was recessed, with double doors. The building, still standing, remained a bakery well into the 20th century.

The 100 Block of West Broadway, a local landmark, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

~ Council Bluffs Nonpareil, Aug. 4, 2014

Nicoll’s children would go on to play significant roles in Council Bluffs history.

When Nicoll and his wife, Amelia (Hutton) Nicoll first arrived in Iowa in 1871, they had five children: James Clark Nicoll II (10 years old), George (9 years old), Frank (5 years old), David (3 years old) and William (1 years old). Once in Council Bluffs, they had two daughters: Amelia, who died as a young child, and Margaret.

James C. Nicoll II went on to become chief of police in Council Bluffs, and two sons held positions with Western Union Telegraph — George in Council Bluffs and Frank in Omaha, the Nonpareil reported. David went on to become a typesetter for The Nonpareil.

About James Nicoll

James Clark Nicoll was born Jan. 15, 1833, in Perth, Scotland in Perthshire County to David and Helen (Mcintyre) Nicoll. He married Amelia Hutton and they had five children before emigrating to the U.S. Two other children were born in Iowa.

James Nicoll was laid to rest in the Fairview Cemetery in Council Bluffs, Pottawattamie County, Iowa.

His last remaining child, daughter Margaret Nicoll, died in 1957.

Case summary compiled by Jody Ewing

On March 8, 2007, Robert Scott Hatcher, 38, was shot seven times near Playland Park in Council Bluffs, Iowa, as he stood on the Iowa Riverfront Trail beneath the Interstate 480 Bridge on the city’s western edge.

In November 2008, stepbrothers Jimmy Joe Caballero, 22, and Derek Gaston, 25, were arrested in connection with Hatcher’s death and charged with first-degree murder, but the charges were dropped by February 2009.

According to a March 13, 2011 article published in the Council Bluffs Daily Nonpareil by Chad Nation — who has written extensively about this case:

Informants had told investigators a number of stories about the two men, but little physical evidence existed.

At the time of the dismissals, an assistant Pottawattamie County attorney said the state needed more time to investigate the case further to make sure the charges were against the right person.

There was evidence that needed further evaluation before the case proceeded, and additional witnesses were also being sought.

Nothing else has ever been filed.

Family members told the Nonpareil that Robert was walking back from a job fair, and the paper said documents indicated Hatcher was there to meet two men about a money issue.

The Nonpareil also stated:

Court documents indicated that sources told authorities the murder weapon was thrown in the Missouri River. So while the case is not closed, it is not considered active either.

Going to end up a cold case?

On the four-year anniversary of Hatcher’s death, his family held a memorial in his honor and released balloons.

When the five-year anniversary arrived, Hatcher’s parents, Bill and Marjorie Hatcher, told KETV Channel 7 in Omaha they’d nearly run out of hope. They hoped that by telling their story, someone would come forward and provide a clue to what happened to their son.

“Bob was always the one that called me all the time, so I miss all of his phone call,” Marjorie Hatcher told KETV. “It just feels like there’s a big hole in your heart.”

Mrs. Hatcher described her son as a shy man who would help anyone, and said it had to be someone with a mean reason for having shot [Bob] that many times.

The couple memorialized their son by planting an evergreen tree in front of their Treynor home.

Bill Hatcher told KETV they are frustrated that justice hasn’t yet come for their son. “It seems like it’s going to end up being a cold case,” he said.

“We thought maybe if somebody saw it again, somebody would remember something,” his wife added.

The couple acknowledged nothing would bring back their son, but believe someone knows who killed him and why.

“It would give us some closure and maybe we’d find out why,” Hatcher’s mother told Channel 7 News.

Police, parents seek community’s help

On the seven-year anniversary of their son’s death, the Hatchers spoke with Daily Nonpareil reporter Mike Brownlee in a month that also would have included Hatcher’s birthday.

“It’s bad. This is always a bad time,” Marjorie Hatcher said in the Nonpareil article published March 9, 2014.

Robert Hatcher would have turned 46 years old on March 21, 2014.

“A lot of things can change in seven years,” Sgt. Chad Meyers of the police department’s criminal investigation division told the Nonpareil. “We’re asking for the community’s help. If you’ve heard something, anything — even just a rumor — give us a call.”

Council Bluffs police received a number of leads in the case over the years, but none that Meyers said were substantial enough to result in an arrest. Meyers still believes the case can be closed, and told the Nonpareil:

“It’s a case that’s solvable. We just need the right info.” ~ Sgt. Chad Meyers

10 years later, still seeking answers

March 8, 2017, marked 10 years since Robert Hatcher’s murder, and in another interview with the Omaha World-Herald’s Mike Brownlee, his family reflected on what it’s been like 10 years without Robert.

“Some closure would be wonderful,” Marjorie Hatcher said. “We miss him so much.”

Sgt. Mark Stuart with the Council Bluffs Police Department said the agency has reassigned the still-open case, the World-Herald reported.

Stuart said detectives planned to review the case material, possibly determining whether advancements in technology would warrant retesting evidence. Stuart said there’s nothing to suggest the first investigation wasn’t complete and thorough, but said the department thought another look could be helpful.

“It’ll never be over until the family gets their day in court,” Stuart told Brownlee.

The murder weapon has yet to be found.

The Hatchers’ daughter, Billie Jo Gubbels of Council Bluffs, died in December 2016 at age 50 from liver disease.

“It’s just really hard to start every day and know two of your kids are gone, you’re never going to see them again,” Majorie Hatcher said in the March 2017 article. “Your heart is just empty.”

Parents of murder victim still looking for answers: ‘We miss him so much’

In a Daily Nonpareil story published March 8, 2019, Robert Hatcher’s parents told reporter Mike Bell they still haven’t given up hope that answers may yet surface and bring a small measure of peace in their son’s unsolved murder.

“We hope someone somewhere may know any detail that could lead to answers,” Marjorie Hatcher told the Nonpareil. “Even after all these years.”

Council Bluffs Police Sgt. Brandon Danielson said there has been no new leads on the case in recent years. A new detective has been assigned to it, in the hope a fresh set of eyes may see a clue previously overlooked.

Two men were arrested in connection to the murder in 2008 after informants told investigators a number of stories. But little physical evidence surfaced to back up the prosecution.

In 2009, charges against the men were dropped. Over the years, some potential leads have come to light but yielded no results.

Anyone with information regarding the case can contact police at 712-328-7867.

Last Seen: November 28, 2009
Remains Found: January 24, 2019 — No Frills Supermarket in Council Bluffs
Positively Identified as Murillo-Moncada: July 22, 2019



July 22, 2019: The remains found behind a former No Frills Supermarket cooler in Council Bluffs, Iowa, in January 2019 have been identified as those of Larry Ely Murillo-Moncada, a former employee who had been reported missing November 28, 2009. Investigators used his parents’ DNA to confirm the identity, and the clothes matched the description of his attire at the time he was reported missing, Council Bluffs Police Capt. Todd Weddum said.

Weddum said Murillo-Moncada’s parents reported their son missing after he became upset and ran out of their home. They told police at the time that he was acting irrationally, possibly because of a new anti-depressant medication he’d begun taking.

Officers contacted family members, other law enforcement agencies, nearby detention centers and even the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency — he had been deported to Honduras before making his way back to the United States — but received no information regarding his possible whereabouts, CNN reported July 22, 2019.

Investigators now believe Murillo-Moncada went to the supermarket and climbed on top of the coolers. The space was used as storage for merchandise, Weddum said, and employees would sometimes go there to hide when they wanted to take an unofficial break.

He is thought to have fallen into the 18-inch gap between the back of the cooler and a wall, where he became trapped. Noise from the coolers’ compressors may have concealed any attempts to call for help, according to Weddum.

An autopsy conducted on the remains found no signs of trauma, and the case has been closed and deemed an accidental death. 

Case summary compiled by Jody Ewing

Larry Murillo, 25, fled from his Council Bluffs, Iowa home on Saturday, Nov. 28, 2009 after beginning a new regiment of anti-depressants and having hallucinations. Despite the cold weather, he left the house with no shoes or coat, wearing only blue jeans and a blue long-sleeve shirt.

His mother reported him missing to the Council Bluffs Police Department later that night.

LarryElyMurilloMoncada2Courtesy photo Roy Phillips
Larry Ely Murillo Moncada was last seen leaving this Council Bluffs residence at 719 N. 14th Street on Nov. 28, 2009.

Murillo lived with his mother at 719 N. 14th Street, and was last seen on Saturday about 6:15 p.m. when he began experiencing hallucinations and fled the home in fear.

Ana Moncada described her son as a 6-foot Hispanic male with brown eyes, black hair, and weighing 140 pounds.

Had seemed disoriented

Mrs. Moncada said her son went to work on Thanksgiving night and when he returned home the morning of November 27, seemed disoriented. She took him to see a doctor, who prescribed an anti-depressant for anxiety.

He continued to feel disoriented and began to hear voices, Mrs. Moncada said.

“He was hearing voices that said ‘eat sugar,’” said Maria Stockton, a friend who served as a translator for his mother. “He felt his heart was beating too hard and thought if he ate sugar, his heart would not beat so hard.”

Though Murillo did not eat very much sugar, she said, by Saturday he’d started having hallucinations.

“He said somebody was following him, and he was scared,” she said.

This fear apparently led Murillo to run out the door that evening without wearing any shoes, Stockton said.

The family has checked with acquaintances and posted flyers at businesses they frequent, but have heard nothing so far.

Larry left behind his wallet, medication and all personal property, and there has not been any activity on his accounts.
