Rivera confessed to kidnapping the college student while she was running in her small Iowa hometown, klling her and dumping the body in a rural field. Investigators say Cristhian Bahena Rivera led police to the body on Tuesday in a cornfield outside of Brooklyn, Iowa.

A man from Mexico living in the USA illegally has confessed to kidnapping college student Mollie Tibbetts while she was running in her small Iowa hometown, killing her and dumping her body in a cornfield, authorities said Tuesday.

Earlier in the week, Rivera confessed to following Tibbetts in a vehicle while she was on a run, then parking the auto and running behind Tibbetts who he said threatened to call the police if he didn't leave her alone.

The agency did not release additional details about the injuries she suffered or what caused them, but said further examination of the body may result in additional findings.

The State Medical Examiner determined that the manner of death was homicide resulting from multiple sharp force injuries.

A man has been charged in Tibbetts' slaying.

Rivera worked for the last four years at a dairy farm a few miles from where Tibbetts was last seen. The footage showed a Chevy Malibu connected to Rivera that was driving back and forth as Tibbetts was running in the area. They've made no mention of recovering a knife or other weapon linked to the death.

But now Cristhian Bahena Rivera is accused of illegally living and working in the US on fraudulent documents and of being a predator who kidnapped and killed a beloved young woman.


A conviction on first-degree murder carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole in Iowa, which does not have the death penalty.

His attorney, Richards, lashed out at President Donald Trump for publicly declaring his client guilty at a rally Tuesday night in which he called the nation's immigration system a disgrace.

However, studies have cast doubt on the argument that immigrants commit crimes more often than others.

The news that the highly publicized and gruesome crime was allegedly committed by a person in the country illegally drew immediate outrage.

Rick Rahn, special agent in charge at the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, said the suspect's motive was unclear.

Division of Criminal Investigation spokesman Mitch Mortvedt agreed that ICE played a "significant role" in the case, particularly in helping confirm Rivera's identity and immigration status.

"Let's let the process go", he said. "The process is about truth-finding in a rational, peaceful and efficient manner".
