Man living in United States illegally charged with murder of student Mollie Tibbetts

The field was in rural Poweshiek County, which includes Tibbetts' hometown of Brooklyn, Iowa, the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation said in a press release.

Tibbetts disappeared on July 18 after she had gone out to jog.

(CBSNews) - CBS News has learned that Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts has been found dead, just over a month after she was reported missing.

Investigators said they used surveillance video in tracking down Rivera. "We were also able to find Mollie running on this video and we were able to determine that he was one of the last to have seen Mollie running".

Nick Miroff, a national security reporter for The Washington Post who covers immigration, tweeted out earlier this afternoon: "SCOOP: Iowa investigators have made arrest in Mollie Tibbetts murder, and the suspect has a fed [eral] immigration detainer, meaning likely in the country illegally".

Last week, authorities said they were focusing their investigation on five areas in and near Tibbetts' hometown. "And that location was near 460th Street, or Avenue, in rural Poweshiek County".

Rivera told investigators he saw Tibbetts running on the evening of July 18, approached her, and started running with her. Tibbetts told him to leave her alone and threatened to call police if he didn't. Friends and family all said her disappearance was out of character. At that point, he realized he had put the woman in the trunk of his vehicle, and when he took her out, he saw blood on the side of her head, the arrest warrant states.

It's not clear whether she returned to the home where she was dogsitting for her boyfriend and her boyfriend's brother. Rahn said Rivera mostly kept to himself. "The bottom line is somebody knows something", father Rob Tibbetts said in a previous interview.

No details will be released by police before a news conference at 4 p.m. (5 p.m. ET), according to Mitch Mortvedt with the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, but he told CNN to "expect quite a bit of news". Beyond that I'm not sure what he was doing.

"I can't really speak to you about the motive", Rahn said. According to Rahn, prosecutors with the Iowa Attorney General's Office will prosecute the case.

Tibbetts' July 18 disappearance set off a massive search involving state and federal authorities. Rahn recognized the support of the community in embracing the Tibbetts family and in cooperating with investigators.

Bongino said that pointing to the illegal immigration problem is not "politicizing the issue" of her death. "We have to get 'em".

"We're gonna come get you", he said.

Local resident Devin Riley told ABC he may have been the last person to see her alive. I mean she was a phenomenal individual.

"We are deeply saddened that this bright, young woman's life was cut short".

President Donald Trump is making the death of Iowa teen Mollie Tibbets a topic of political debate, following news that an undocumented immigrant was charged with her murder.
