The next thing Rivera said he remembered, authorities said, was being back in his vehicle and realizing she was in his trunk, with blood on the side of her head. "The State Medical Examiner determined that the manner of death was homicide resulting from multiple sharp force injuries".
Investigators say that Rivera came to the country from Mexico illegally several years ago when he was in the late teens.
There's a world of difference between catcalls or wolf whistles and the fatal violence that befell Mollie Tibbetts, who disappeared last month after going out for an evening run in Brooklyn, Iowa. Yesterday, an illegal alien, now charged with first-degree murder, led police to the cornfield where her body was found.
Authorities said they retrieved Tibbetts' body after interviewing Rivera.
After police connected the vehicle to Rivera, they questioned him about Tibbetts, who vanished in July. "The perpetrator should be punished to the fullest extent of the law, and when he meets his maker, suffer the consequences he deserves", she wrote.

"I was watching it with my mom and I kind of freaked out", Reding, a nursing assistant, recalled of the moment she saw police identify the suspect as Rivera. "The dark colored Chevy Malibu can be seen numerous times driving back and forth in the area". Richards said his client, who was ordered held on $5 million cash bond during a brief court appearance Wednesday, came to the United States at 17, had the equivalent of a middle school education and had worked for years tending to dairy cows. He faces life in prison without the possibility of parole if convicted.
Republicans such as President Donald Trump and Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds called for stricter immigration laws and enforcement nearly immediately after Rivera, who is suspected of being in the country illegally, was charged Tuesday.
You heard about today with the illegal alien coming in very sadly from Mexico, and you saw what happened to that incredible, attractive young woman.
At both the Republican National Convention in 2016 and the State of the Union in 2018, Trump had the family members of those murdered by illegal immigrants (to whom he refers as "Angel Families") share their stories. He has admitted to abducting Tibbetts, according to the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation.
