    Someone asked about the immigrant community several threads back. A local replied there weren’t very many. Ugh. I will be so sad if this plays out this way... for multiple reasons. Awful

    Not likely to be illegal since there are student visas.

    My thoughts and prayers are with Mollie and her friends and family.

    If confirmed maybe they are from Canada?

    I'm just going to observe a moment of silence for Mollie before the press conference begins. It seems right to me.

    Also want to send my heartfelt best wishes to the first responders today who will surely be tormented by this day forever.

    I don't think this was a vehicular homicide. I think that she must have known this guy, however slightly and that maybe he'd even shown an interest in her. It would make sense given her father's earlier statements that he thought that she was with someone and that person had misconstrued the situation.

    I've seen many in these threads express the fact that they feel more than one person was involved in this. I Just wanted to let you know that I agree with your sentiment. Hopefully the truth will eventually come out. I feel so bad for the family, but at least she is not feeling any pain any more.

    On a separate note, please people.....be vigilant and aware of your loved ones, especially children. There are so many sick people who's minds are twisted from watching extreme porn and all kinds of other things. We HAVE to protect the people we love.

    And females....please please please be careful when you are out and about by yourselves. There are people driving around looking for opportunities to present themselves. Where I live, a girl was jogging 2 weeks ago, and a guy pulled up to her in the middle of a busy neighborhood, and tried to abduct her!!! Luckily she fought him off, but she could have been another statistic had she been unlucky. I understand the sentiment that people don't want to live in fear......but we live in a very sick world.

    Be careful out there, people.

    If this is true, I think he told them where to find her.
    Holding him for other reasons would give them time to question him

    Iowa state investigators said Tuesday they have a suspect in custody who is subject to a federal immigration detainer, typically an indication that the person is present in the United States illegally.

    “We’re not going to release anything more until the press conference,” said Mitch Mortvedt, the assistant director of Iowa’s Division of Criminal Investigation. He said officials would provide more details at a press conference scheduled for 4 p.m. central time.

    I was really hoping she would be found alive. Now that leaves how, and although I don't have proof, a logical view point to me, is that if this IS an illegal immigrant, the person was possibly drinking and driving, accidentally hit her on her run, panicked over the fear of being deported, and disposed of her body by hiding it within bush.

    In any manner, I truly hope she didn't suffer. She seemed like a girl with a super bright future, and it's incredibly sad that this is the outcome. R.I.P Mollie.

    When I was in college, an international student from Greece raped a girl on campus. It was international red tape nightmare to get him prosecuted. Did they specifically say the guy was illegal or that there was immigration involved?

    If this perp is being held on federal charges, the US Marshal's service has agreements with specific jails to hold their prisoners. May or may not include the local jail, have no idea.

    And please, save your earbuds for your desk and the gym. NEVER wear them outside when you are jogging or walking alone!
