Facebook A suspect is under arrest in the Mollie Tibbetts case and is on an immigration hold.

Mollie Tibbetts has been found dead in rural Iowa County, according to multiple news reports, and local news reporters are at the scene of what they say is a law enforcement search area.

In a press release, authorities confirmed that they found Mollie’s body in a rural area of Poweshiek County, Iowa, on August 21, 2018. They said the suspect was not in the country legally.

“We have confirmed with Homeland Security that…he is an illegal alien,” authorities said during a news conference of the suspect, Cristhian Rivera, 24, who resides in rural Poweshiek County, Iowa. They said that Cristhian Rivera had been in the area for four to seven years. He was charged with an accusation of first-degree murder. Many news sites gave the suspect’s name as Christian Rivera, but court records give it as Cristhian.

Authorities said that Rivera allegedly confessed that he “seized Mollie running.” He alleged that he “ran alongside of her or behind her” and Mollie said she was going to call the police and took off running, but he allegedly chased her down. According to authorities, Rivera led authorities to Mollie’s body.

Authorities alleged that they came across an individual who had security cameras and were able to identify a black vehicle that we believed belonged to Rivera. Authorities said they tracked patterns and routes in which he took. They also found images of Mollie running on this video. The suspect also claimed he blacked out and awoke in the area where Mollie was found, authorities revealed. Authorities did not release specifically how Tibbetts was murdered. Mollie was found in a cornfield with cornstalks placed over her, authorities said.

Here is the local news report, which was live on the morning of August 21, 2018:

The reporter then posted that she was going to an area in southeast Guernsey:

She reported seeing many police barricades.

The missing college student from Brooklyn, Iowa, vanished on July 18, 2018, seemingly without a trace. A massive search effort sparked, and national news attention ensued.

Authorities have released few details about the investigation, and it’s not clear how the body was found. The cause of death has not yet been announced.
