Illegal Alien Arrested for Missing Iowa Girl Murder

An illegal alien has been arrested for the murder of Mollie Tibbetts, the missing Iowa girl who’s body was recently discovered. The Washington Post reports

More than a month after Mollie Tibbetts went out for a jog and disappeared — and days after investigators searching for the missing Iowa college student said they were focusing their efforts on five locations — her body has been found, the Associated Press reported.

Iowa state investigators said Tuesday they have a suspect in custody who is subject to a federal immigration detainer, typically an indication that the person is present in the United States illegally.

“We’re not going to release anything more until the press conference,” said Mitch Mortvedt, the assistant director of Iowa’s Division of Criminal Investigation. He said officials would provide more details at a press conference scheduled for 4 p.m. central time.

Details were not immediately available from the authorities, though the Des Moines Register reported that a body was found in rural Poweshiek County.

This is a developing story, additional information will soon be released.
