Teen Admits She Was Also Pursued by Mollie Tibbetts's Killer

University of Iowa student went missing after going out for a jog on Wednesday

The White House tweeted Tuesday: "For 34 days, investigators searched for 20-year-old Mollie Tibbetts".

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.

An Iowa college student who was killed after she disappeared while jogging last month succumbed to "multiple sharp force injuries", according to the results of a preliminary autopsy released on Thursday.

On Tuesday, Rivera led police to Mollie Tibbetts' body.

So far, authorities said they have not found anything indicating that Tibbetts and Rivera knew each other before the attack.

Dale Lang, along with his father, the former president of the Iowa Farm Bureau, Craig Lang, said that they're cooperating with investigators and handed over all information they had that pertained to Rivera. Rivera said at some point he looked down noticed Mollie's earpiece from her earbuds or headphones lying on his lap, and "realized he put her in the truck".

But when conservatives decide immediately upon hearing about it that this is the story they want to call attention to, they aren't doing it due to their commitment to stopping crime.

A 24-year-old farm worker accused of killing Tibbetts made an initial court appearance on Wednesday as the case reignited a national debate over illegal immigration and crime. The case also raised a host of questions, including why the Iowa dairy farm that employed Rivera apparently failed to check his immigration status through E-verify - a 21-year-old electronic program created to filter out undocumented immigrants who apply for jobs.

The couple - along with her husband's brother Craig Lang and his wife - own farmland outside Brooklyn that includes trailers where some of the dairy's employees live for free as a benefit of their employment, farm spokeswoman Eileen Wixted confirmed.

Rivera and Tibbetts have no known connections, other than that Rivera allegedly told investigators that he saw her running previously. The footage showed a Chevy Malibu connected to Rivera that was driving back and forth as Tibbetts was running in the area.

Rivera, a conservative who has regularly spoken out against the GOP's approach to immigration, argued that the suspect, Cristhian Bahena Rivera, should not represent the millions of unauthorized immigrants now living in the US. He faces life in prison without the possibility of parole if convicted.

This week, President Donald Trump used Tibbetts' killing to promote his claim that unauthorized immigrants bring "tremendous crime" into the country.

"What your testimony is, is showing everyone the strength that God has given you", she said. Some have blamed Democratic policies for the slaying, even though studies have disputed the notion that those in the country illegally are more likely to commit violent crime. He has admitted to abducting Tibbetts, according to the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation. "It's just hard to understand what happened out on that road", Rivera's lawyer Allan Richards said.

"Let's let the process go", he said.
