Update: Tracy Gostomski Tribble

Investigators held a press conference this afternoon, announcing the results of Tracy Tribble’s autopsy, and have reclassified her death as a homicide. A few interesting details were revealed.

  • Investigators said Gostomski-Tribble died of asphyxiation and that she was either strangled, smothered or she drowned in the Missouri River where she was found.
  • “She suffered multiple blunt force injuries, including at least three separate injures to her head, which are inconsistent with an accidental death,” Wilber said.
  • Wilber said he believes that Tribble was murdered between 10:45 p.m. on May 2 and the early-morning hours of May 3.
  • “We know Tracy was having a phone conversation with her husband’s sister that ended at around 10:45 p.m.,” Wilber said.
  • There is a $75,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction in the case. Wilber said that investigators specifically want to talk to someone who saw activity on the Missouri River bridges on the night and early-morning hours of May 2 and 3.

Stan Tribble is still a person of interest in the case. County attorney Matt Wilber would not comment on how cooperative Mr. Tribble has been with the investigation.
