They’re Not Sending Their Best: Illegal Alien Arrested For Murder of Mollie Tibbetts
Illegal alien Cristhian Bahena Rivera has been charged with First Degree Murder for the slaying of Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts.
The 24-year-old illegal alien has been apprehended thanks to surveillance footage of him in the area.
“Rivera, a Mexican national, is an undocumented immigrant and led detectives to her body in rural Poweshiek County, according to Iowa investigators,” the Washington Post reports.
The police say that Rivera had made advances on Tibbetts while she was out jogging and began running alongside her. When she threatened to call the police, the illegal alien says that he “blacked out.”

A search had been underway for Tibbetts’ body for 34 days, after she went jogging and never returned. The search began when she did not show up for work at a Grinnell daycare the following morning.
The body of the 20 year old student was discovered on Tuesday in a field covered with corn stalks.
