The remains of a missing northwest Iowa woman have been positively identified as those of Tina Conde, and her husband is now charged in her death. Officers say Tina and her husband Joaquin Conde moved from Estherville to Michigan in October of 2003. Tina left her child with her mother, Sandy Triggs of Estherville, and stayed in contact with her family for a short while. On November 3rd, Triggs reported to police she had not spoken with her daughter in more than a week and was concerned about Tina’s safety. After numerous calls and sorting of information from three sources, it was determined the remains of Conde may have been found by a farmer in Mexico back in December of 2003. The alleged crime scene was investigated by Mexican authorities and photos of the victim were forwarded to the F-B-I and Border Patrol. The remains have now been returned to Estherville and Tina’s husband Joaquin is charged in her death. He’s being held by Mexican authorities. The Estherville PD says Joaquin submitted a written confession regarding the circumstances of Tina’s death.
