I am so sorry for the way the search ended. Was hoping John's family&friends would hear GOOD news. My prayers are with them all at this sad time.

God bless the Lacina family during this difficult time. Though it's hard to understand why God would take a young man in his prime, know that He did this for a specific plan. I would also like to applaud the efforts of the Ames and Iowa State communities in their vigilant search for Jonathan. At least you will be able to finally have some closure.

There probably should be an outside investigation in the hob done by police here. I have been to the ols dairy farm it is not that far off campus, in walking distance. The second fact is that they turned down volunteers who wanted to help was a bad move. Then to say it was searched twice and then back peddle and say the inside wasn't searched was bad. An outside fresh investiation should be done. Trust has been lost with the ISU Poice and someone needs to answer the hard questions. So sad for Jon's family. What a tragic loss.

I am also very confused about why they didn't do a search in an abandoned building. If they did do the search as they were suppose to do it then he could have been found, and if it was searched to a great extent then maybe there is something else that did happen. Maybe he was put there who knows. I graduated with his brother and just don't see them being people that would do something of this extent. So I am hoping that they find out soon what happened to him and exactly how long he was there or if he was placed there later.
I am very sorry for the Lacina family they are wonderful people and I am happy that he was finally found though. Rest in Peace Jon

if you live in ames you know that all of ames is basically campus... go ahead and give ames pd another excuse why they couldn't find a body in a haystack... Jon and his parents are the victims here, and my prayers are with his family.

People, this is what the National Guard is for. Why werent they called in to help? Maybe because they are not on U.S. Soil?

Why did WHOTV remove all the "judge it" visuals from these last three pages of comments???
Dont offer freedom of speech, WHOTV, if you're only going to omit it.

I would have to say that the body was moved to this location at some point. I'm sure the building was checked before. Police park in the lot about 100 feet from this building every day to watch for speeders down Mortenson. Why someone would place the body there... I don't know. Maybe they wanted to get caught.
Poor kid. I feel bad for his family. What a horrible thing to have to go through.
Hopefully, Jon found God. May God comfort and watch over his family.

Haha... are you serious? Do you really think that the National Guard is meant to find and investigate missing bodies? Take a political science class. POLICE are meant for civil investigations, nice plug to bring troops home
