Captain America: The First Avenger actress Mollie Fitzgerald may have murdered her mother, Pacifica Fitzgerald, in her Kansas home ahead of her mother moving back to Kansas after multiple decades in the Houston area. The 38-year-old actress was arrested on Christmas Eve following her 68-year-old mother’s body being found in her Kansas home on December 20.
No motive has been revealed behind the stabbing. The actress is being arrested for second-degree murder.
The elder Fitzgerald’s brother, Gary Hunziker, gave a statement about the death of his sister.
“We were shocked. It doesn’t matter the circumstances – the loss of a sister is what it’s all about.”
The actress appeared as “Stark Girl” in Marvel‘s Captain America: The First Avenger. She also acted as an assistant to the film’s director, Joe Johnson. She also appeared on other productions like Absurd Illusions, The Lawful Truth, and Trouble Is My Business.
Fitzgerald is being held in Johnson County Jail with a $500,000 bond.
