Immigrant charged with murder in Tibbetts' death

Mollie Tibbets

Rivera told police he followed Tibbetts with his auto and pursued her when she started running away, said Rick Rahn, special agent in charge at the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation.

Richards represents Cristhian Bahena Rivera, who is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Mollie Tibbetts. The video showed Tibbetts, 20, jogging near her hometown of Brooklyn as well as Rivera's vehicle. Investigators asked anyone who was around five locations, including a auto wash, a truck stop and a farm south of town, to report if they saw anything suspicious.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed it had "lodged a detainer" with the Poweshiek County sheriff's office to hold Rivera after he was charged with first-degree murder.

A cause of death remains unclear.

Tibbetts' body was reportedly covered with corn stalks.

Greg Willey of Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa said he learned of the discovery from a close family friend of Mollie Tibbetts on Tuesday morning.

The 20-year-old was last seen July 18, jogging near her home in the central Iowa town of Brooklyn. He allegedly said he started running alongside her or behind her.

"We have confirmed with Homeland Security Investigations that he is and illegal alien and has been in this area for 4 to 7 years", Rick Rahn, special agent with the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, said at the press conference. Her boyfriend and his older brother, who live in the home together, have both been cleared in the disappearance. First degree murder carries a penalty of life without parole.

Mollie Tibbett, 20, of Brooklyn, was last seen jogging on July 18, 2018. It goes on to claim that she then threatened to call the police and he got mad and "blocked from his memory" what happened next which is what he says he does when he's upset.

"You heard about today with the illegal alien coming in, very sadly, from Mexico and you saw what happened to that incredible, handsome young woman", Trump said. "We thank the Tibbetts family for their support to us, and we hope that they will continue to have the support of their community and the nation in the coming weeks and months".

The DCI and the Federal Bureau of Investigation joined the search for Tibbetts a few days after she disappeared. The $400,000 in reward money for information about her disappearance will now go towards anyone who can help find the people responsible for her death. "And then he tells us that at some point in time he blacks out and then he comes to near an intersection which we believe he then placed Mollie".

On a visit to Des Moines last week, Vice President Mike Pence met with the Tibbets family, telling them "you're on the hearts of every American".

A news conference is now underway, with authorities confirming a man has now been arrested.

Investigators have been following "hundreds" of leads, including interviewing dozens of people and even searching a nearby hog farm.
