Nikki Delamotte and Her (Uncle Robert J. Delamotte) Shooting
Delamotte recently travelled to Wood County to reconnect with her father’s brother following the death of her maternal grandmother. She met up with her uncle (Robert J. Delamotte, 67) on October 2018 and the two made plans to meet up again on Sunday 11th November 2018 at a bar to watch football, JoAnne Ullman, Delamotte’s mother, told Cleveland.com.
Ullman reported the 30-year-old reporter missing on Monday, 12th November after she didn’t get a response to text messages. Someone also reached out to Ullman on Facebook and was also concerned about Nikki Delamotte, Cleveland.com reported.
Ullman said she went to the trailer and found her daughter’s car with her cell phone and wallet inside. Police soon arrived at the scene and confirmed two bodies were inside the residence.
“I’m sorry to tell you they’re both dead and they both had gunshot wounds,” she recalled an officer saying.
Delamotte’s colleagues remembered the reporter as the “embodiment of kindness” with “a knack for telling stories that highlighted Cleveland’s diversity.”
“She had strong positions and backed down from no one, but she did so with gentleness and, always, respect. She was such a bright light, and Cleveland has a dimmer future for her loss,” editor Chris Quinn said.
Kris Wernowsky, Cleveland.com’s crime, and courts editor said Delamotte’s stories were widely shared and read.

Nikki Delamotte Biography
Delamotte was born in Newport News, Virginia. Her family moved to Ohio when she was 9 years old. At the age of 16 years old, she and her mother moved into a house in Toledo, Ohio where her mother still lives today. Delamotte was the only child in the family.
She performed in musicals in high school but usually ended up in the chorus because, as her mom, JoAnne Ullman admits, her daughter wasn’t a very good singer or actor.
Delamotte initially wanted to go to the University of Toledo and live at home, but ultimately attended Cleveland State University, where she found her future home.
She worked for cleveland.com for the past two years and knew even then how to write clean, crisp copy under the pressure of a looming deadline.
Delamotte had a long-term boyfriend ( Bob ) whom she loved. She was also a lover cats and puns – something evident to anyone who read her social media pages.
