It took a whole year for the body of Clarissa Victoria Almodóvar to be found in a house in East Chicago, Illinois. The 30-year-old mother of 5 children had been reported missing on January 29, 2023, and her body was discovered on February 1, 2024. Her family was devastated by the news, and they are now raising funds for her funeral through a GoFundMe account.
Local police found Clarissa’s body while they were looking for a fugitive in a home in East Chicago. Two people of interest are currently detained and being questioned about the case. According to her family, Clarissa was last seen with her partner in January 2023, just a few days before her birthday.
In a separate case, 17-year-old Brissa Romero disappeared on December 4, 2023, after going to a Christmas party. Her family immediately reported her missing, and the Carpentersville Police Department began a search for her. They offered a reward for information on her whereabouts, and her family increased the reward figure when they saw no results.
Brissa’s last cell phone connection was located at a pond in Vernon Hills, and her truck was found submerged in the pond. Divers recovered a body from the pond, which was later confirmed to be Brissa Romero. The cause of death was determined to be drowning.
The Romero family, originally from Guanajuato, Mexico, has been in Illinois for many years. They are now waiting for Brissa’s body to be delivered to them so they can carry out the funeral services. Rest in peace, Brissa Romero.
