Yikes! Mollie Fitzgerald has been charged with second-degree murder for allegedly fatally stabbing her mother on 20th December 2019.
Her 68-year-old mum, Patricia ‘Tee’ Fitzgerald, was found dead in her Olathe, Kansas home. The Kansas City Star reported that she’s being held on a $500,000 bond.
For those who don’t know, Mollie had a minor role in the 2011 Marvel film, “Captain America: The First Avenger”, where she portrayed Stark Girl. She also served as an assistant to director Joe Johnston. The superhero flick went on to make more than $370 million at the worldwide box office.
Besides being an actress, Mollie’s resume also includes a few filmmaking credits (director and producer) for low budget shorts – 2014’s “The Lawful Truth” and 2017’s “The Creeps”. According to Entertainment Weekly, she was also in the process of making the documentary “Fireball”.
So what caused the ugly episode? Authorities apparently have not found a motive behind the murder yet. When contacted, Patricia’s brother Gary Hunziker, said, “We were shocked… It doesn’t matter the circumstances — the loss of a sister is what it’s all about.”
It is also understood that Mollie suffered minor injuries and was taken to a local hospital for treatment. She is due in court this week.
