Osage Man Sentenced to 50 years in Prison After Pleading Guilty to 2nd Degree Murder in Ritualistic Murder of Mason City Woman

(Bob Fisher – Radio Iowa) An Osage man has been sentenced to 50 years in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder in the 2021 death of a Mason City woman. Twenty-three-year-old Nathan Gilmore was charged last August with first-degree murder in the death of 29-year-old Angela Bradbury. Police accused Gilmore of picking Bradbury up near the Cerro Gordo County Jail on in April of 2021 and later murdering her. District Judge Gregg Rosenbladt says that during a pre-sentence investigation, Gilmore admitted murdering Bradbury and showed no remorse.
“These are your words to the author – ‘I met someone, I stabbed her in the neck and went back to work. I never even knew her name until she was reported missing. I don’t feel really anything about it. It was easy and not the worst thing I’ve done.’ I would indicate to the court and Mr. Gilmore that you really lack insight and remorse into what you have done.”
Gilmore allegedly placed Bradbury’s skull on a stick in the Greenbelt River Trail Park in rural Mitchell County in July of 2021. Investigators say they discovered drawing with satanic graphics, blood splatter, and a series of numbers during a search of Gilmore’s residence they say linked him to Bradbury’s murder Bradbury’s father Tim and sister Alyssa made victim impact statements during the sentencing hearing. Tim Bradbury admonished Gilmore for his actions.
“You did not stab my daughter in an act of self-defense or even rage, but to feed your own sadistic appetite. I will forever live with the fact that your face was the last face she ever saw,” he says. “That tears the last emotion she felt. You killed my child and then went home like nothing happened.” Tim Bradbury told Gilmore he could not understand the sadistic way that he murdered his daughter and then decapitated her.
“The head that I kissed good night hundreds of times. The head her mom placed her hand on to feel for a fever. The head of which the most perfect, mischievous smile would creep. The head her beloved dog Batman licked with enthusiasm<” Bradbury says. “You took it and placed it on a spike in an attempt to appease the devil inside of you. How could anyone do that? How could any decent person sleep with that on their conscience?” Tim Bradbury told Gilmore his life is over as he will spend most of the rest of his life in a prison cell.
“While this murder was meant to be a sacrifice, I want you to know that the one, only sacrifice that day was your future. The rest was unfortunate collateral damage of a dark, sadistic soul,” he says. Gilmore’s plea to the lesser charge of second-degree murder allowed him to escape a mandatory life sentence for first-degree murder. The 50-year prison term requires him to serve 35 years before he’d be eligible for parole.
