LYON COUNTY, Nev. (TCD) -- The body of a missing woman who was reportedly kidnapped from a Walmart parking lot earlier this month has been found in a remote gravesite.
The Churchill County and Lyon County Sheriff's Offices released a joint statement Wednesday, March 30, to announce they located Naomi Irion. According to the statement, on March 29, a tip sent investigators to a "possible gravesite" in a remote area of Churchill County, where they found an adult woman's body. The Washoe County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed the body was that of Irion the next day.
Irion was reported missing March 13, at 11:25 p.m. to the Lyon County Sheriff's Office. The 18-year-old was last seen at 5 a.m. the day prior in the Walmart parking lot in Fernley, Nevada, according to a Sheriff's Office statement. Her disappearance was reportedly deemed "suspicious in nature," and a search for both Irion and her car began.
Investigators located her car March 15 in an industrial part of Fernley. The Lyon County Sheriff's Office said they found evidence to suggest her "disappearance is criminal in nature." Video footage reportedly showed a man getting into her car with Naomi in the passenger seat.
