The police have begun a homicide inquiry into the disappearance of Rachel Morin, 37.
Her boyfriend, Richard Tobin, who has not been listed as a suspect in the case, has recently come out on social media, requesting privacy as he mourns with her family.
Who is Rachel Morin and what happened to her?
Rachel Morin, a mother of five from Bel Air, Maryland, vanished on August 5, 2023.
She was last spotted near the Ma and Pa Trail in Bel Air about 6 p.m. EST.
Her boyfriend, Richard Tobin, reported her missing about 11 p.m., and a body was located less than 24 hours later.
At the moment, little is known about her disappearance, although it is being investigated as a homicide.
“At around 1:07 p.m. [Sunday], a citizen called 9-1-1 to report a female’s body had been located off the trail,” Harford County Sheriff Jeff Gahler said during a press conference.
“I’m not going to go into what, physically, they observed at the scene. But investigators believe sadly that it’s a homicide case.”
The medical examiner has yet to confirm that the remains are Morin, but Gahler said that they “firmly believe this is the body of Rachel Morin.”
Who is Rachel Morin’s boyfriend, Richard Tobin?
Morin is frequently seen with Tobin when she is not with her family.
Tobin’s life is unknown because he generally remains out of the spotlight, but his Facebook page implies that he enjoys fitness.
Morin and Tobin are a fresh couple who had only been together a few days before she went missing.
According to their Facebook sites, they started dating on August 1, 2023.
