Mollie Tibbetts' Murder Suspect Cristhian Rivera Makes First Court Appearance | Crime Time

Undocumented Immigrant Charged With Murder Of Iowa Woman

So far, as of this writing, other members of Mollie Tibbetts' family have not attempted to tie her murder to illegal immigration, nor have they responded to politicians who have done so.

As the Inquisitr reported on Wednesday, 24-year-old Cristhian Rivera, who worked on a nearby farm, has been arrested in connection with Tibbetts' murder.

Investigators believe Rivera followed Tibbetts and abducted her as she was out for a jog.

Even after Tibbetts disappeared on July 18 while out for an evening run in the small central Iowa town of Brooklyn, Rivera kept coming to work and "nobody saw a difference" in his demeanor, said Dane Lang, the manager of Yarrabee Farms. The black Chevy Malibu drove back and forth numerous times before it just started following her, according to an affidavit.

Rivera parked his auto and started running alongside and behind Tibbetts.

Tibbetts had been staying at her boyfriend Dalton Jack's home in Brooklyn while he was working a construction job 120 miles away.

The Iranian economy has been beset by high unemployment, inflation and a rial currency that has lost half its value since April. He also warned Syrian President Bashar al-Assad not to carry out further chemical weapons attacks.

After the interview, police say Rivera guided them to her location from memory. It was in this position that authorities found her on Tuesday.

It is unclear why Rivera killed Tibbetts, said Rick Rahn, special agent in charge at the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation.

"We worked with Homeland Security Investigations and they have him as an illegal alien", Mortvedt said. "This is sadly a tragic event and we hope it wouldn't occur anytime in the near future".

The statement added, "We know that many of you will join us as we continue to carry Mollie in our hearts forever". I think we need immigration laws that focus on people who pose a real threat.

Investigators say Christhian Bahena Rivera showed them where he hid Tibbetts' body. He is in jail, and on Wednesday, a judge set his bail at $5 million. Yarrabee Farms is owned by the family of Craig Lang, a prominent Republican who previously served as president of the Iowa Farm Bureau.

Investigators said Rivera was in the country without proper legal documentation.

Allen Richards is taking issue with comments from elected officials like Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds, who blamed a "broken immigration system" for Tibbetts' murder. "All of us at Yarrabee Farms are shocked to hear that one of our employees was involved and is charged in this case".

"I can't really speak to you about the motive", Rahn said.

Allan M. Richards, an attorney for Cristhian Bahena Rivera, stated in a court document filed Wednesday that an employer has said Rivera is in the USA legally. "And you saw what happened to that incredible, attractive young woman", Trump said.

President Donald Trump referred to the case while speaking at a rally in Charleston, West Virginia.

News came hours later that Tibbetts' accused murderer is in custody and that news came with the news that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) had lodged an immigration detainer on the suspect - an obvious clue that the suspect was an illegal alien. The studies show that states with higher shares of people living in the country illegally have lower violent crime rates.
