    BROOKLYN, Iowa -- Authorities said on Tuesday that they have
    charged a man living in the U.S. illegally with murder in the
    death of an Iowa college student who disappeared a month ago
    while jogging in a rural area.

    Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation Special Agent Rick Rahn
    said that Cristhian Bahena Rivera, 24, was charged with murder
    in the death of Mollie Tibbetts.

    Investigators say they used surveillance video in tracking down
    Rivera. The video showed Tibbetts, 20, jogging in a rural area
    near her hometown of Brooklyn as well as Rivera's car.

    Police announced the charge at a press conference just hours
    after they found what they believe to be the body of Tibbetts in
    a field covered with corn stalks.

    Tibbetts was last seen July 18 in Brooklyn, a rural town of
    about 1,400 people, as she took a routine evening jog. It's
    unclear whether she returned to the home where she was dog-
    sitting for her boyfriend and her boyfriend's brother, who have
    said they were both out of town . She was reported missing by
    her family the next day, after she didn't show up for work at a
    day camp for children.

    Tibbetts' disappearance set off a massive search involving
    dozens of officers from the FBI, as well as state and local
    agencies. They focused much of their efforts in and around
    Brooklyn, searching farm fields, ponds and homes. Investigators
    asked anyone who was around five locations , including a car
    wash, a truck stop and a farm south of town, to report if they
    saw anything suspicious on July 18.

    Last week, Vice President Mike Pence met privately with the
    Tibbetts family during a visit to Iowa and told them that
    "you're on the hearts of every American."

    At Brooklyn City Hall, city clerk Sheri Sharer said Tuesday was
    a sad day for the town.

    "It never crossed our mind that she wouldn't come home safe,"
    she said.

    Willey's group has been publicizing a reward fund that raised
    around $400,000 for any tip that led to Tibbetts' safe return.
    He said the fund, which included more than 220 donations from
    individuals, will now likely be used for any information that
    helps police catch anyone responsible for her death.

    "Once they catch their breath, this will turn into a weapon
    going the other direction, to catch the person who did it," he

    Tibbetts, a psychology major, would have started her junior year
    this week in Iowa City, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) east of
    Brooklyn. She was staying with her longtime boyfriend and
    working while home from school over the summer.
