Mollie Tibbetts Funeral: Mollie's Father Celebrates

BROOKLYN, Ia. —  Rob Tibbetts broke through the somber atmosphere and called for a couple in the packed gymnasium to stand up.

In eulogizing his 20-year-old daughter, Mollie, who was found dead Tuesday after she vanished more than a month earlier, Tibbetts said he wanted to celebrate "something wonderful."

The couple popped up — they had just been married the day before — to the crowd's joyful applause.

"That felt good. That’s what Mollie would have done," he said. "Let’s try one more. Let’s hear it for the Bears football team — for their first win." Mollie’s younger brother, Scott, the starting quarterback, helped lead the team to victory.
