    IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Administrators say most of a roughly
    $400,000 reward fund aimed at gathering information about a
    missing Iowa student will be returned to donors now that she's
    been found dead.

    Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa said Tuesday that most of the
    donations from individuals and businesses were provided on the
    condition of Mollie Tibbetts' safe return.

    Group vice president Greg Willey says those donations will be
    returned. Donations not linked to Tibbetts being found alive
    will go to the group's general fund and Tibbetts' family.

    Tibbetts vanished on July 18 while she was out running in her
    hometown of Brooklyn, Iowa.

    Police say 24-year-old Cristhian Bahena Rivera led them to
    Tibbetts' body in a cornfield on Aug. 21. Rivera is charged with
    first-degree murder in her death.

    Her family also released the following statement on Tuesday:
    "It has been brought to our attention that an individual known
    as Samantha Lucas has been engaging in divisive online dialogue
    on behalf of the Tibbetts family. Samantha Lucas is not a member
    of our family nor does she speak for us. This is a difficult
    time for our family. We wish only to dignify Mollie’s life and
    share our sorrow in private. If and when we wish to make a
    public statement we will do so appropriately."
