Candlelight Vigil planned for Nov. 1st
By Vanessa Williamson
The community of Arlington was devastated this month when news of Tiffany A. Booth, a long time Arlington resident, had gone missing in Nevada. Tiffany was an Arlington High School class of 2003 Alumni.
Reports indicate that Tiffany spoke daily with her mother, Judy but there had been no verbal communication between them since September 27. Tiffany and her mom then began communicating through text messages until October 8th when all communication stopped.
Early reports said that Tiffany and her boyfriend Eduardo Clemente were going on an overnight trip, and it was thought that they would be back for work the next day. The couple did not return to their home in Las Vegas.
Subsequently, Tiffany’s car was found with the license plates removed in Ely, Nevada. Last week, Tiffany’s family was hit with dreadful news that a body had been located at Indian Springs, Nevada. Still hoping for the best and remaining positive, the community had prayed it wasn’t Tiffany. Unfortunately, after identification by dental records, it was confirmed that it was Tiffany Booth.
As the investigation continued, it was discovered that home security video footage had been deleted from the couple’s Las Vegas condo.
The story takes a few twists and turns as a lot of crimes like this usually do. Eduardo was spotted in Preston, Nevada after Tiffany’s car was found outside of Ely. There have been reports that he stayed in someone’s yard, after strangers took him in and let him stay the night at their home. He said his name was Daniel. He had a few black bags and a wagon. He described his story to his hosts as a man who was on a spiritual journey and had just buried his Mom in Idaho. This information had been kept quiet as investigators tried to piece everything together.
Investigators are now asking for the public’s help in trying to locate Clemente, as he is believed to be the last person who saw Tiffany alive and is likely a prime suspect. For more information on the case, a Facebook page has been setup by Tiffany’s friends and family. In addition, a GoFundMe page has been established to help with burial expenses.
The community has organized a candlelight vigil in her honor on Sunday, November 1st at 4:00pm at Gazebo located in Earl Snell Park. There will also be ribbons placed around town in Blue and Green in her honor, as she was a faithful Seattle Seahawks fan.
