MONTEZUMA – The Iowa State Medical Examiner conducted an autopsy on the body of Mollie Tibbetts, and a few conclusions have been released.
The State Medical Examiner determined that the manner of death was homicide resulting from multiple sharp force injuries. Further examination may result in additional findings. Autopsy reports are confidential under Iowa law, except for the cause and manner of death.
Cristhian Bahena Rivera has been charged in connection to Mollie’s death. He’s an illegal immigrant who worked at a farm in the town Mollie was living in at the time of her death. Mollie’s body was found this week in a cornfield, face up, just outside of Brooklyn.
