    The suspect in the murder of Iowa college student Mollie
    Tibbetts is a 24-year-old illegal immigrant from Mexico who had
    been living in the area for up to seven years, officials
    revealed Tuesday.

    Cristhian Bahena Rivera was apprehended more than a month after
    the 20-year-old University of Iowa student disappeared, Rick
    Rahn, special agent in charge with the Iowa Division of Criminal
    Investigation, said during a news conference. Tibbetts was last
    seen jogging on July 18 near Brooklyn, Iowa -- in Poweshiek
    County, where Rivera lives.

    A body believed to be Mollie Tibbetts was discovered earlier
    Tuesday and Rivera led authorities to the location, Rahn said,
    adding that her body was found hidden in a corn field beneath
    several corn stalks.

    Rivera was employed for the past four years at Yarrabee Farms, a
    dairy farm, the company confirmed in a statement to The
    Associated Press. The company said he was in good standing as a
    worker and was shocked to learn of his alleged involvement in
    Tibbetts' disappearance and murder.

    The suspect told law enforcement he approached Tibbetts while
    she was running, Rahn said.

    “He actually tells us that he ran alongside of her or behind
    her. And then at one point, he tells us that Mollie grabbed
    ahold of her phone and says 'you need to leave me alone, I'm
    gonna call the police,’” Rahn said of the interview. “And then
    she took off running, he, in turn, chased her down. And then he
    tells us that at some point in time he blacks out and then he
    comes to near an intersection in which we believe he then placed

    Rivera revealed to investigators that he became angry when
    Tibbetts took out her cell phone, according to court documents
    obtained by The Associated Press. He told authorities that he
    panicked and “blocked” his memory.

    The suspect claimed he didn’t remember what happened next but
    later realized that he’d put Tibbetts’ in his trunk after
    finding an earpiece from headphones in his lap, the documents
    said. He opened the trunk and noticed blood on the side of her

    Investigators said they believed the suspect had been in the
    area for four to seven years.

    “A first-degree murder charge was filed today in connection with
    the disappearance of Mollie Tibbetts, who was last seen jogging
    in Brooklyn, Iowa on July 18, 2018,” Rahn said. “A complaint and
    affidavit names Cristhian Bahena Rivera, age 24, who resides in
    rural Poweshiek County and he has been charged with murder in
    the first degree.”

    After Rivera’s arrest, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
    “lodged a detainer with the Poweshiek County Sheriff’s Office”
    on the suspect, who was described as “an illegal alien from
    Mexico,” the agency confirmed.

    With the help of surveillance video obtained from someone living
    in the area, law enforcement was able to identify a vehicle
    belonging to the suspect, Rahn said. Investigators saw Tibbetts
    on the video and realized that Rivera “was one of the last ones
    to see Mollie running,” Rahn added.
