    LE will be able to determine if it was accidental/natural/homicide manner of death. They will make their announcement after they examine her body and do a complete autopsy including toxicology testing. Autopsy's take a few hours or less, this isn't their first rodeo. Toxicology will take about 1 month or longer to get the results back.

    Also, we don't know if there is a suspect arrested or not, and if he/she made a confession and led LE to the location of MT body or not. I believe these details will be revealed during the PC today.

    Great. This is going to rile up middle America. :( Such a tragedy but I’m glad they have someone in custody and hope the system serves justice, although there is probably nothing that would make up for this tremendous loss. Sad all around.

    snipped from Washington Post article -
    Authorities, who had narrowed their search to a carwash, Tibbetts’s boyfriend’s home, a truck stop and two farms, have not released information on when or how Tibbetts was found, a cause of death or said whether they have identified a suspect.

    So I wonder how long he has been in custody? And why they were focused on July 18 - ugh. Poor Mollie's family.

    Well I’m interested to hear how this all came together in the early morning. Did he move her body and they were waiting?? Did they get him to confess? I hope she wasn’t alive for awhile. ...

    Thinking
    Thinking the same....a transient farm worker, or a worker from the carnival. Also still thinking an opportunistic assault. This is so heart wrenching....

    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

    Yes Indeed it will. Also, will bring forth many questions. How long has he been in the country? Has he been deported before? Where else has he worked before? and can his DNA be linked to any other crimes?

    Very common in construction work, in some parts of the country, at least. I don't know about Iowa.

    Temporary foreign workers are huge on farms in Canada, and I know illegals are huge on horse farms in the US. I can only guess they are used on many farms.

    This sounds so crazy but it might be true, with them getting the news before the presser. It's going to be a huge media frenzy if this is the case.

    (I didn't mean that in a derogatory way BTW - someone else said farm worker so I thought it was reported in WashPost. I take back my assumption!)

    Sorry , just keep jumping on this thread as time allows....

    I was under the impression her phone was left at the house ?
    Apparently not .*sigh*

    Hope there's an arrest soon --- if harm was done to her. :(
    Just seems like it was a perp who knew her schedule. (And knew her personally --- or at least knew who she was.)

    Also he was the Governor of Indiana. This is the exact type of community leadership former Governors & Mayors do. If it happened in Utah, you know Mitt Romney would be there. If it happened in NY, you know Mike Bloomberg would be there. Don't think it has anything to do with politics or the specific case.
