Preliminary Autopsy Reveals How Police Believe Mollie Tibbetts Died

Casey GreeneAug 27, 2018

But others around town, including Rivera's defense lawyer, question whether the family had to have had suspicions, if not known, about Rivera's immigration status.

"I can't speak about the motive".

"They are not the same systems", Lang acknowledged Wednesday, correcting the farm's earlier claims that it had used E-verify to ensure it was legal to employ Rivera.

Rivera's coworker told CBS News' Adriana Diaz that someone who would have done something like this would be nervous and not be able to eat and he seemed like nothing was wrong.

"You saw what happened to that incredible, lovely woman (Mollie Tibbetts)", he said at a rally in West Virginia. "I don't want my team and especially the female runners to lose joy from this senseless crime", said Alex Oliver, head coach of the cross country teams at Riverside Community School Junior High and High School in Carson, Iowa. "They turned a blind eye to the reality of documentation", Richards said.

That didn't stop the Trump administration from politicizing Tibbett's death, which they did soon after her body was discovered. "Should've never happened. Illegally in our country".

When Rivera was hired in 2014, he presented an out-of-state government-issued photo identification and a matching Social Security card, Lang said.

MacCallum fired back with "that for some people", the fact that Tibbetts' killer was here "illegally" is just "another indicator that we have a bad, lax process at our border". The farm is owned by several generations of the Lang family, including prominent Iowa Republican Craig Lang.

The slaying of Mollie Tibbetts and the arrest of this week of farmworker Cristhian Rivera pulled attention away from the convictions of the president's former campaign chairman and personal attorney while providing an example of the kind of criminal fears that fueled Trump's rise to the White House.

A search of Iowa court records revealed no prior criminal history, and it's unclear whether he had ever been subject to prior deportation proceedings.

In a brief interview with CNN, Axne called efforts to politicize the death "unconscionable to me" and said that while she believes the USA immigration system is "broken" and in need of legislative fix, "abolishing ICE is absolutely not the solution". It's about a three-hour drive from the resort city of Acapulco.

Rahn said that investigators had talked to hundreds of people and received more than 4,000 tips, but the break in the case came within the last two weeks when they found someone with a security camera system while canvassing a neighborhood. Rivera allegedly followed her in a black Chevy Malibu.

Rivera then threw Fox News under the bus, calling them out for their "spin" on this sensitive issue. She said she doesn't want to believe it's him.

According to the Labor Department's most recent National Agriculture Workers Survey, about 47 percent of hired crop farm workers in the USA lack proper authorization to work here. An autopsy was planned for Wednesday. Iowa does not have the death penalty; first-degree murder charges carry the penalty of life without the possibility of parole.

On a visit to Des Moines last week, Vice President Pence met with the Tibbetts family, telling them "you're on the hearts of every American". If he was from Colorado and lived there for 20 years, we would know that.
