UPDATE: Human Remains found on Missouri farm in missing Wisconsin brothers case

Local News


Authorities say human remains have been found on a northwest Missouri farm that has been the focus of a search for two missing Wisconsin brothers.

Clinton County Sheriff Larry Fish announced Wednesday the remains were found on a farm near Braymer.

He says the remains have not been officially identified. No cause of death has been determined.

Authorities have been searching a farm near Braymer for 35-year-old Nicholas Diemel and his 24-year-old brother, Justin Diemel, who have been missing since July 21.

The farm was operated by Garland Joseph Nelson, who authorities say moved a rental vehicle the brothers were using during a trip to Missouri for the livestock business they operated in Bonduel, Wisconsin. Court documents indicate the brothers visited the farm and Nelson was later seen driving their truck away. It was later found abandoned in a commuter parking lot.

The search for two Shawano County brothers missing in Missouri continues.

The question is: what happened to Nicholas and Justin Diemel after they visited a farm near Braymer, Missouri as part of a month’s long cattle deal?

A search for them has turned to a death investigation at the farm where 25-year-old Garland Joseph Nelson lives with his mother.

Nelson is behind bars without bond.

He’s currently charged with tampering with a motor vehicle, after admitting to driving the missing brother’s truck from his farm last Sunday morning to a lot where it was found abandoned.

Nelson’s family members say they just want the truth.

“one of the comments by one of the relatives is they just want to know the truth, regardless of what that truth is, they want to know what that truth is,” said a friend of Nelson’s.
