Murder of Mollie Tibbetts: iCognative


The 20-year old student Mollie Tibbetts disappeared July 18 while out for a jog in her hometown of Brooklyn, Iowa. Her family reported her missing the following day when she didn’t show up for work. Her disappearance set off a massive investigation and weeks of fruitless searches. Just over a month after her disappearance, Mollie Tibbetts has been found dead. The man suspected of killing and hiding her body in a cornfield is due in court today. Twenty-four-year-old Cristhian Bahena Rivera, an undocumented immigrant who lived near Tibbetts, is charged with first-degree murder and is being held on $1 million bond.  According to reports as well as Rick Rahn, special agent in charge at the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, investigators had been searching the area where she was found for weeks but corn stalks were placed on top of the body believed to be Tibbetts. All that the investigator Rahm said regarding suspect, “He tells us that he had seen her before but beyond that, I can’t tell you anymore,” said Rahn.

Police sifted through more than 4,000 tips but say the big break came over a week ago when investigators obtained surveillance video of Tibbetts jogging and noticed a black Chevy Malibu following her. Police traced the car to Rivera and brought him in for questioning on Monday. Investigators charged Cristhian Bahena Rivera with the abduction and murder of Tibbetts.


According to NamUs, an acronym for the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System, operated by the National Institute of Justice – Over 600,000 individuals go missing in the United States every year. Fortunately, many missing children and adults are quickly found, alive and well. However, tens of thousands of individuals remain missing for more than one year – what many agencies consider “cold cases”.

It is estimated that 4,400 unidentified bodies are recovered each year, with approximately 1,000 of those bodies remaining unidentified after one year.  Adding to an already terrible outcome in this case is the detail that Rivera has been employed by Yarrabee Farms for the last four years. The Brooklyn-based company said it was shocked to hear that Rivera was charged in Tibbetts’ death. Yarrabee Farms is owned by the family of Craig Lang, a prominent Republican who previously served as president of the Iowa Farm Bureau. The main red flag is that the undocumented immigrant who police say murdered Mollie Tibbetts passed a federal government employment background check and was working for a Republican official in Iowa.
