Tiera Strand, 25, a mother who went missing after her family said she was assaulted outside of a downtown Austin pub was discovered dead in a ditch 70 miles away.
Tiera Strand’s body was discovered on the side of a road near Temple, Texas, on Friday, according to KVUE-TV, KWTX-TV, and KTBC-TV, citing the Bell County Sheriff’s Department. Strand, 25, apparently went to a pub with companions on April 16 and was never seen or heard from again, according to KVUE.
Strand was attacked by a group of women inside the Mooseknuckle Pub, according to family members, before the battle spilled out onto Sixth Street in Austin. According to them, eyewitness cell phone footage showed the end of the brawl. Strand is said to have fled without her possessions, leaving her mobile phone, pocketbook, and keys with friends. “It just doesn’t sound like her,” said Strand’s sister, Mariah Herron. “You’re already wondering what’s going on.”

Strand, who had planned to join the military, leaves behind a 6-year-old daughter, according to Herron. “One of the last conversations we had with each other, which was the day before she went missing, she told me that she’s really working hard and she’s really excited about her future,” Herron said. According to KWTX, the cause of death is now being investigated, and no arrests have been made.
According to a GoFundMe page set up to help with funeral expenses and the hiring of a private investigator, family ones are looking for answers about what happened “from the moment she was brutally assaulted in a crowd of people until her body was discovered.” Strand’s cousin Tamara Yarbrough-Kelly told KVUE, “Let me just say that none of our family is going to get tired of fighting until we get justice for her.”
Her death is being investigated jointly by the Austin Police Department and the Bell County Sheriff’s Department. Anyone with information should call the APD at 512-472-8477 or the BCSD at 254-933-5442.
