Today a Mexican national illegally residing in the U.S. has been charged with first-degree murder in the disappearance and death of Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts, officials said at a press conference at Poweshiek County Sheriff’s Office in Iowa Tuesday afternoon.
Christian Bahena Rivera, 24, was charged with murder. He had resided in the area for four to seven years, officials said. He led investigators to the body’s location after confirming that he interacted with her while she was running and she felt threatened by him. Rivera said he “blacked out” at some point during their interaction, officials said.
Her body was found covered with corn stalks in a farm field near the small rural town of Brooklyn, Iowa.
Police officials said that security camera footage was “critical” in charging the illegal alien with the murder of Tibbetts.
Police have said they do not yet know a motive.
“For whatever reason, he chose to abduct her,” an Iowa official said.
On Aug. 21, ICE lodged a detainer with the Poweshiek County Sheriff’s Office on Christian Bahena-Rivera, 24, an illegal alien from Mexico, after he was arrested on murder charges.
The Tibbetts’ family, who were visited by Vice President Mike Pence, have been notified of the discovery of Mollie’s body and the charges against the illegal alien.
If this killer was residing in a “sanctuary city” EVERY Politician who supported the policy should be charged as accessories to murder.
As a father of two daughters, I can’t imagine what this father is going through.
My heart and tears go out to him for this terrible outcome.
The person they caught does not deserve to be alive. I bet there isn’t a father in this country who would turn down the opportunity to be in a firing squad who would love to kill this POS. No trial, no attorneys, and no prison. Done deal.
