This week a family, their friends, and the Brookings community has been devastated by a tragic loss. Our hearts go out to the family and their loved ones as they mourn the passing of their child.
On Thursday, July 2nd, 2020 at 2228 hours the Brookings Police Department received a report of a missing child from the 1000 block of Southland Lane. The caller reported his 10-year-old son, Molu Zarpeleh, had been out riding his bike and had not returned home.
Officers responded to the area and conducted a coordinated search of the area which included area schools, playgrounds, outbuildings, private residences and churches. After the search began officers located Molu’s bicycle lying in the grass on the south side of Peace Lutheran Church. After locating the bicycle, officers focused the search in this area, which included a nearby privately-owned retention pond.
As the search continued, a pair of sandals were located near the water’s edge of the retention pond. These sandals were confirmed to belong to Molu by his parents.
As officers continued to search the area of the retention pond the police department requested the assistance of the Brookings Fire Department. Members from the Brookings Fire Department arrived shortly before midnight and provided search assistance which included members of their dive team to search the retention pond. The search was suspended at approximately at 3:00 a.m. due to safety concerns, poor lighting conditions, and murky water. Officers remained at the pond during the rest of the night to maintain scene security.
The search resumed at 7:00 a.m. on Friday and the Brooking Fire Department utilized pumps to remove about 300,000 gallons of water from the pond which allowed the dive team to conduct a grid-based walking search for Molu. The dive team located Molu’s body in the pond at approximately 8:40 a.m.
We are still working on getting more details about the death, as family statement on the death is yet to be released.
