Molly Young's Father Files Civil Suit
CARBONDALE -- The father of a Carbondale woman who died mysteriously two years ago is now suing her former boyfriend.
Molly Young was found dead from a gunshot to the head in March of 2012 in the apartment of Richard Minton. He was a Carbondale police dispatcher at the time.
A coroner's inquest could not determine whether the 21 year old shot herself or if she was killed.
Young's father, Larry, filed a civil suit in Jackson County Tuesday. He claims Minton caused or contributed to his daughter's death and covered it up.
Allegations include that Minton wiped fingerprints from the gun, washed his clothes, and took a shower, then waited hours to call police.
The suit seeks more than $1 million in damages.
