An Iowa teacher allegedly murdered by two of her students said, “we all know we are going to die,” one day before her death while at a Day of the Dead celebration, according to a local report.
Fairfield authorities discovered the body of Nohema Graber on Nov. 3 in Chautauqua Park. Graber had been reported missing earlier that day.
Just one day before her alleged murder, Graber told a local newspaper “we all know we are going to die. It’s our way of laughing at death,” according to KCCI. Graber was at the local library to see a Day of the Dead display celebrating Mexican heritage when she made the comments to the newspaper.
The investigation into Graber’s death is ongoing, with authorities charging 16-year-old Willard Noble Chaiden Miller and 16-year-old Jeremy Everett Goodale with homicide in the first degree and conspiracy to commit homicide in the first degree. Both are being criminally charged as adults.
