Update On Illegal Alien Who Killed Mollie Tibbetts

There are major developments in the murder case of University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts which has been unresolved for more than a month. An illegal immigrant was detained and led law enforcement to her body.

Iowa authorities have identified Tibbetts’ alleged murderer as 24-year-old Cristhian Rivera. He was charged with first-degree murder of the 20-year-old university student.

Rivera is a Mexican who has been staying in the country illegally for four to seven years.

Rivera resided in rural Poweshiek County - illegally, of course.

Where he worked has not been released. His Facebook page states Rivera is originally from Guayabillo, Guerrero, Mexico. He studied at Preparatoria 35 in Guerrero.

Rivera’s ex-girlfriend, who also lives in Iowa, happens to be Facebook friends with Mollie Tibbetts. Rick Rahn, special agent in charge at the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, said Rivera admitted to investigators that he had seen Tibbetts before. He did not elaborate on previous interaction or if they knew one another.

Authorities were able to obtain surveillance video from a resident in the Brooklyn neighborhood identifying Rivera's black Chevrolet Malibu, the same car he used to follow Tibbetts while she was running.

During his interrogation, Rivera made bizarre statements to the authorities. The illegal alien admitted making contact with Tibbetts, first by following her in his car and then getting out and running beside her.

Rivera told investigators he became “angry” when Tibbetts took out her cell phone and threatened to call police if he doesn’t stop bothering her. He said he panicked and then "blocked" his memory. Rivera also claimed that he “does not recall what happened” but found an earpiece from headphones in his lap and realized he'd put Tibbetts' in his trunk. He said he then opened the trunk and noticed blood on the side of her head. Those are just some of the strange and disturbing confessions the Rivera made in connection to the murder of Tibbetts.

The revelations are being met with fury by the most of the thinking American public.

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds said residents "are heartbroken, and we are angry."

He added: “We are angry that a broken immigration system allowed a predator like this to live in our community, and we will do all we can bring justice to Mollie's killer.”
