Naomi Irion found dead in Northern Nevada grave

Bestinau got that-

The body of an 18-year-old woman who had been missing for weeks has been found in Churchill County in northern Nevada, authorities said Wednesday evening.

Naomi Irion was last seen on March 12 in Fernley when she was abducted around 5 a.m. in a Walmart parking lot, according to the FBI.

A tip led police to a possible grave where a body was found Tuesday, and it was confirmed Wednesday to be Irion, according to a joint press release from Churchill County and Lyon County Sheriffs.

“We would like to express our sympathy and condolences to the Irion family and thank all the volunteers for their hard work in locating Naomi and closing the family,” the message read.

Lyon Police Department arrested Troy Driver, 41, last week in connection with Irion’s disappearance. Driver was detained on charges of kidnapping.
