Missing Woman Found Dead In Desert As Police Search For Her Suspect Boyfriend
Tiffany Booth's body was found in the desert after going missing while on a trip with her new boyfriend Eduardo Clemente, according to Las Vegas police.
A Nevada woman who disappeared while on a trip with her boyfriend has been found dead in the desert and he's being sought by police as the main suspect.
Tiffany Booth, 35, and Eduardo Clemente, 38, were reported missing on Oct. 5 after both failed to report back to work after a few days off, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department stated in a press release.
The couple had been on a trip to Boulder City, KVVU-TV in Las Vegas reports. A relative of Booth became concerned after she was unable to reach either of them, according to police.
Three days after the couple was reported missing, a Nevada citizen discovered Booth's vehicle abandoned in a desert near the city of Ely, on the eastern edge of the state. Investigators suspected foul play and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s homicide team began investigating. That investigation led to another desert location, near the town of Indian Springs, where Booth’s body was located on Oct. 19. Indian Springs is roughly 30 miles northwest of Las Vegas and 240 miles from Ely.
Clemente has not been located and he is considered the sole suspect in Booth’s death.
The cause and manner of Booth’s death have not yet been released.
Booth’s cousin Angelena Moore told Oxygen.com that the couple had been living together for about five months, but dating for less than that.
"She just saw the good in everyone," she said. "She just wanted to help everyone and that’s what she did for him."
Moore said her cousin took Clemente into her home, before they started dating, because he told her he had nowhere else to go. She believes he took advantage of Booth, who works in IT.
"Tiffany was 110 pounds soaking wet," she said. "She was tiny and petite. I don’t think she had a mean bone in her body."
Booth’s mother, Judy Booth, told The Ely Times in mid-October, just days before her daughter’s body was found, that she thought Clemente was “like a genius.”
