On Thursday night, NBC Nightly News became the first broadcast network newscast to bid farewell to murdered University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts despite new developments, including results of the preliminary autopsy report. 

ABC’s World News Tonight wasn’t much better, relegating Tibbetts to a news brief in the show’s third block which ran for one second less than the three teases for the brief itself (19 seconds vs. 18 seconds). In contrast, the CBS Evening News stayed on top of the story with a full report.
