Officers started out by searching through the apartment where Maureen lived, but nothing seemed concerning to them.
Out in the apartment’s parking lot, her car was sitting there like it was on any normal day, so where had she gone?

It was a question that authorities really didn’t have any answers to, as they couldn’t find any evidence to point them in the direction of Maureen.
That would all change four days later.

Four days after Maureen disappeared, two boys in their teens were walking through a wooded area close to Ely Rd SW when they saw a woman lying inside of the trunk of a car that had been abandoned out there in the woods.
That woman turned out to be Maureen, and she had some of her clothing on, but she was not wearing any shoes. Strangely enough, her feet were completely clean, so she could not have walked out to the area.
“An autopsy was conducted and it was determined that Farley had been hit in the head causing a skull fracture which caused her death,” the Cedar Rapids Police Department said in a statement.
