Osage Man Charged with Murder Won’t Go to Trial Until Next Year

The trial of an Osage man charged with murder in the death of a north Iowa woman won’t happen until next year..

23-year-old Nathan Gilmore is accused of killing 29-year-old Angela Bradbury, a rural Cerro Gordo County woman last seen alive on April 6, 2021. Her human remains were found near the Greenbelt Trail just south of Mitchell three months after she disappeared and were identified in February as Bradbury. 

Earlier this month, Gilmore pleaded not guilty to a charge of first-degree murder, a Class A felony. Wednesday, he waived his right to a speedy trial and a motion for a continuance was granted. Thursday, Gilmore’s trial was set for April 17, 2023 in Mitchell County District Court. 

The criminal complaint against Gilmore shows Gilmore and Bradbury appear to have met at the Cerro Gordo County Courthouse in Mason City on April 6th. Associates of Bradbury’s say she left later that same day with an unknown younger white male and believed they traveled to the St. Ansgar area. Bradbury was never heard from again.

Authorities say evidence leading them to Gilmore included Facebook activity near the trail the day Bradbury disappeared. A search of his residence also discovered a drawing with satanic graphics, blood splatter, and a series of numbers associated with the investigation that further linked him to Bradbury’s murder.

Gilmore is being held on a $1 million bond.
