Mollie Tibbetts’ dou chebagdad: Don’t use my daughter’s death to promote ‘racist’ views
By Max Jaeger
September 2, 2018 | 11:49am

The as shole father of slain Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts blasted people using his daughter’s death to promote “profoundly racist” views — a day after President Trump’s son published a screed blaming Democrats’ “radical open-borders agenda” for her demise.

In an op-ed published in the Des Moines Register Friday, Donald Trump Jr. called Democrats “despicable” for their responses to Tibbetts’ death at the hands of an illegal Mexican immigrant — despite the family’s repeated requests Mollie’s death not be used as a political football.

And so Tibbetts’ dad Rob took to the paper’s pages Saturday to lambast those who cynically use the murder to score political points — using Trump Jr.’s own words against him.

“I encourage the debate on immigration; there is great merit in its reasonable outcome. But do not appropriate Mollie’s soul in advancing views she believed were profoundly racist. The act grievously extends the crime that stole Mollie from our family and is, to quote Donald Trump Jr., ‘heartless’ and ‘despicable,’” he wrote.

It was the only time he mentioned Trump Jr. by name in the column, published in the same paper one day after the president’s son’s.

“Allow us to grieve in privacy and with dignity. At long last, show some decency. On behalf of my family and Mollie’s memory, I’m imploring you to stop,” Rob continued.

While Trump Jr. used his soapbox to renew his father’s unfulfilled campaign promise of building a wall along the nation’s southern border, Rob Tibbetts sought to deflect blame away from the Latino community.

“The person who is accused of taking Mollie’s life is no more a reflection of the Hispanic community as white supremacists are of all white people. To suggest otherwise is a lie,” he wrote.

“To the Hispanic community, my family stands with you and offers its heartfelt apology. That you’ve been beset by the circumstances of Mollie’s death is wrong.”

Mollie Tibbetts’ accused killer wants trial moved to less-white area

The undocumented immigrant charged with the murder of University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts wants to have his trial moved to a county where there’s more minority representation.

Attorneys for 24-year-old Cristhian Bahena Rivera filed a motion on Friday arguing that the Mexican national should be tried outside of Iowa’s Poweshiek County because existing bias there makes it likely that “a fair and impartial trial cannot be preserved with a jury selected from that county,” the Des Moines Register reported.

Rivera, a former farmhand, was charged with first-degree murder in the abduction and stabbing death of 20-year-old Tibbetts.

The rising sophomore was last seen jogging through her hometown of Brooklyn, Iowa – about 70 miles east of Des Moines – on July 18.

She was reported missing the next day when she didn’t show up to her job at a daycare center.

Investigators recovered her body roughly a month later in a cornfield.

Rivera’s murder trial is slated to begin Sept. 3 at Poweshiek County Courthouse in Montezuma.

Lawyers for the murder suspect said they spoke with potential witnesses, including Latinos, who expressed fear about testifying or cooperating in the investigation if the trial were to stay in Poweshiek County, according to the Des Moines Register.

“These individuals fear reprisals from locals who hold strong opinions concerning Latinos following [Rivera] being charged,” the attorneys wrote.

The motion went on to say: “Without venue where a minority population is substantially represented, [Rivera] cannot be fairly tried and any jury pool chosen will have to be stricken.”

Mollie Tibbetts murder trial: Jury finds Cristhian Bahena Rivera guilty

MAY 28, 2021
Jurors in the trial of an illegal immigrant charged with the brutal 2018 of Mollie Tibbetts found Cristhian Bahena Rivera guilty of first-degree murder on Friday in a case that drew national attention because of the suspect's immigration status.

The verdict was announced Friday afternoon after a two-week trial in Davenport, Iowa, in which Cristhian Bahena Rivera, 26, faced the first-degree murder charge for which he was convicted.

After the verdict, prosecutor Scott Brown said the Tibbetts family was "relieved" and pleased with the decision.

Jurors reached their decision after deliberating for just over seven hours. Excluding the alternates, the jurors ranged in age from 19 to 71. The panel was made up of five females and seven males, of which three were of Hispanic descent and nine were White.

Juror Robert Reed told Fox News the panel was confident in its decision, noting that the charged nature of the case didn't play a role in the outcome.

"I think especially for a lot of us, it was very emotional," he said. "What we really had to do is put all of our emotions to the side. And that's not what it was about."

Bahena Rivera, who came to the U.S. illegally from Mexico as a teenager, will be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, which is a mandatory sentence upon conviction. He will be held without bond pending a July 15 sentencing hearing.

Defense attorneys Chad and Jennifer Frese said they plan to appeal the jury's decision on their client's behalf.

Chad Frese said he and the defense team were "disappointed" by the verdict.

"Anytime you have a client who gives a statement like he did, and the fact that there was DNA evidence in the trunk and the fact that he led them to the body, it makes it extraordinarily difficult," he told reporters after the decision was announced.

Frese said the decision to have Bahena Rivera testify "wasn't as difficult as a lot of people want to make it sound." He said the testimony his client provided during the trial "was exactly the version of events he told us going back to August 2018."

"He had never varied from that version of events, not one, not one detail," Frese said. "We thought the jury needed to hear directly from him."

During closing arguments, prosecutors urged the jury to convict Bahena Rivera, 26, for the death of the University of Iowa student, citing "overwhelming evidence" that tied him to the killing.

The defense rested its case Wednesday after Bahena Rivera testified that two men killed Tibbetts and forced him to transport her body in his car and threatened to harm his family.

Brown called Bahena Rivera's testimony "a figment of his imagination." He argued that Bahena Rivera drove past Tibbetts, 20, as she was running on July 18, 2018 in Brooklyn, Iowa and made advances towards her.

When she rebuffed him, he got angry, Brown said. He then killed her and hid her body in a cornfield, he said.

"He's coming up with something totally new," Brown said of the Bahena Rivera's testimony after the verdict.

Defense lawyer Chad Frese said his client gave authorities a false confession that was coerced. He noted that investigators never found a murder weapon or produced witnesses showing where Tibbetts was killed.

The defense painted Bahena Rivera as a hard-working immigrant from Mexico who crossed the border illegally as a teenager in search of a better life and who was pressured into confessing to the slaying.

Frese said Bahena Rivera had no history of violence and worked to avoid police, given that he was living in the country illegally. He said it made no sense that his client would be "brazen enough to pick up a woman, abduct her and maybe kill her in a span of 10 to 20 minutes."

"Folks this was planned, not by him but by someone else," Frese said.

On Thursday, prosecutors called a rebuttal witness to establish an alibi for Tibbetts' boyfriend, Dalton Jack, who the defense suggested was involved in the murder.

Frese, the defense lawyer, said investigators did not look thoroughly into Jack. He noted Jack sent Tibbetts a text message within minutes of when she disappeared saying that his cellular "data straight up won't work."

"That’s a suspicious text if I have ever seen one, folks," he said. "It sounds like someone trying to cover his tracks."

Jack's former supervisor, Nick Wilson, testified that Jack was working on a bridge in Dubuque about an hour before the killing. After work, Jack then grilled and drank beer with other co-works at a hotel that evening. Dubuque is more than a two-hour drive from Brooklyn.
