Police Still Searching for Iowa Agent’s Killer

Police say they are continuing to get active new leads even seven years after a 27-year-old real estate agent was fatally shot at a model home in West Des Moines. Ashley Okland’s murder is still an open case, and no arrests have been made.

“We just keep getting leads on it,” Lt. Anthony Giampolo with the West Des Moines Police Department told KCCI-8 News. “Maybe by reminding someone, maybe someone will say something that they know [can] help us with that case.”

Police say they have interviewed hundreds of people since Okland’s murder on April 8, 2011. Okland was shot once in the head and once in the chest while at a model town home.

“It’s like a puzzle that you’re trying to put together and you’re wanting to find those last few pieces to complete it,” Giampolo says.

An award of $150,000 is being offered for any information leading to an arrest.
