Her daughter Molly Matheson, 22, was found beaten and strangled to death on her bathroom floor by her mother, Tracy, on April 10, 2017.

Just four days later, Megan Getrum, 36, was killed in the same violent manner.

Police were able to track rapist and serial killer Kimbro through the use of forensic DNA.

During a 2022 sentencing hearing for the crimes, which NBC will revisit in a Friday night Dateline special, Molly’s father David Matheson spoke directly to the man who killed his daughter.

“Honestly, I have nothing to say to you. You don’t exist,” he told Kimbro in court.

“You occupy no place in my head, and you never will.

“You are the definition of a coward. You are the biggest coward I have ever seen.

“My wife, my family, Megan’s family and all those girls are stronger and stronger than you will ever be.”

The heartbroken dad went on to say, “Each of these girls are going to go on to do amazing things with their lives. They just don’t.

“After today’s hearing, they’re going to take you wherever they take you, and no one will hear from you again.

“And, again, as you heard earlier, you get off easy.”

While David thanked prosecutors in the courtroom at the end of his statement, he questioned the justice system in a recent interview with FOX 4 Dallas-Fort Worth.

“Why was this guy able to kill Molly? ” he said.

“Why could he kill Megan? It shouldn’t have happened.”

Molly reportedly dated Kimbro for a short time while she attended the University of Arkansas.

Molly’s mother said she met Kimbro once when he came to their family home.

The two were not in a relationship at the time of her murder.

Initially, Kimbro admitted that he visited her apartment the night she was killed, but denied any involvement in her death.

Getrum had never met Kimbro at the time of her murder.

The Plano, Texas native was hiking in the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve when she went missing.

His body was discovered in Lake Ray Hubbard only days later and DNA evidence and witnesses, who placed Kimbro at the scene before Getrum disappeared, linked him to his murder.

Police also found that Kimbro raped four women between 2012 and 2014, with several claiming he strangled them in the process.

DNA evidence linked Kimbro to three of the sexual assaults that occurred in Plano in 2012, South Padre in 2014 and Allen in 2015.

While the investigation into the Matheson and Getrum murders was ongoing, another rape victim from McKinney, Texas came forward.

Kimbro admitted to raping and killing Molly and Getrum and raped four other women as part of a plea deal to avoid the death penalty.

He was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole.

“There was an admission of guilt for all cases,” Tracy Matheson said.

“It was really important that everyone was included in that.”

Prosecutors had strong words for Kimbro after accepting his guilty plea.

“Reginald Kimbro is a serial rapist and serial killer. He used his personality and charm to attract women or drugged them when it didn’t work,” Tarrant County District Attorney Allenna Bangs said.

“He spoke on case after case until his violence resulted in the deaths of Molly Matheson and Megan Getrum.”

Dateline’s special on the murders, titled Wreckage, will take viewers deep into this layered crime Friday night on NBC.
