Body of missing Iowa student found, reports say

Missing Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts 'found dead'

"Greg Willey, the vice president of Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa, also told the Associated Press the body found Tuesday is believed to be Tibbetts", reports Fox.

University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts has been missing from Brooklyn, Iowa, since July 18, 2018. In a news conference Tuesday evening, investigators said they had not confirmed the body's identity but that they believed it was Tibbetts.

They linked the auto to Rivera and "from that we were able to track his pattern in the routes in which he took", Rahn said.

Kriegel said Rivera is an illegal immigrant. After reviewing the video, they determined that Rivera was one of the last people to see her running.

Rivera led investigators early Tuesday to a body believed to be Tibbetts in a cornfield about 12 miles (19 kilometers) southeast of Brooklyn, Iowa, where Tibbetts was last seen running, Division of Criminal Investigation special agent Rick Rahn said. "We first approached Mr. Rivera yesterday... And that location was near 460th Street, or Avenue, in rural Poweshiek County". At one point she threatened to call the police and took off running, police said. When Rivera went to get to get Tibbetts out of the trunk he noticed blood on the side of her head.

US Citizenship and Immigration Services spokesperson Michael Bars told CNN that Rivera did not make any requests for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, that might have provided him legal status in the US.

When previously asked if authorities suspect that Tibbetts was abducted, Winker said: "We don't know where Mollie is at right now".

Confusion, disbelief remain over man who allegedly killed family in Colorado
Shanann Watts was looking forward to a party Saturday to disclose the gender of her third child, KDVR said, quoting a friend. She was also 15 weeks pregnantwith a son the couple planned to name Niko, her brother, Frankie Rzucek, posted on Facebook .

Investigators received thousands of tips and a reward fund for information about Mollie's whereabouts had grown to almost $400,000. Investigations determined the vehicle belonged to Rivera, and he was then questioned by law enforcement about the disappearance of Tibbetts on Tuesday. I know this must be an unimaginable loss. Beyond that I'm not sure what he was doing.

"He was very compliant", Rahn said.

The case will be prosecuted by the Iowa Attorney General's Area Prosecution Division. According to Rahn, prosecutors with the Iowa Attorney General's Office will prosecute the case. "We commend the swift action by local, state, & federal investigators working in Iowa in apprehending an illegal immigrant, who's now charged with first-degree murder". Rahn recognized the support of the community in embracing the Tibbetts family and in cooperating with investigators. For Mollie's parents, her family and friends, any words today will be of little comfort.

Lang said that Rivera was an employee in good standing who came to work on time and got along with his coworkers. The immigration laws are such a disgrace, we're getting them changed, but we have to get more Republicans. "She was a phenomenal individual".

A charge of 1st degree murder has been filed against 24-year-old Cristhian Bahena Rivera. National media outlets have followed the developments of the investigation.

"Our hearts go out to the Tibbetts family and to the Brooklyn community".
