    Mollie Tibbetts investigation: Chevy Malibu seen in surveillance video not registered to suspect Rivera, source says
    The owner wouldn’t be liable as they would have been unaware that the car was being used in a crime. Even then I don’t think there’s a law that implicates owners, as accessory crimes (before and after) cover that, and that person has to be aware that a crime occurred or was going to occur.

    I can't help but think that this isn't the first criminal act that Rivera has perpetrated. No prior record? Does a fine upstanding young man just wake up one day and decide to kidnap and murder a young girl? I have to wonder if, given the fact that he gave a bogus SS# to his employer, is his name even Rivera. This guy could be using an alias, and may only be able to be identified through DNA analysis. I have no doubt LE is on top of this. Time will tell

    Might be bad publicity! Look what happened to Jodi Arias' s lawyer.

    I believe Rivera is his real name. I think he was hired with false ID and his employer said he didn't know his name was Rivera.

    Just stopping in to check on the latest. Just watched the hearing today. I saw a picture of Mollie's mother from I think yesterday when she heard the news. She was wearing a blue blouse and looked on the verge of collapse. My heart goes out to this family and Dalton with this devastating news. How will they ever survive. Thinking too of Mollie's father and his long plane trip he will be making home soon. God bless them all.

    That’s exactly the motivation. Jose Baez in the Casey Anthony case also comes to mind, but this is incredibly common, and has been a motivation practiced throughout the history of the U.S. justice system. Publicity pays.

    Just a question for long time posters. After following little Lucas Hernandez and now sweet Mollie, do any cases have happy (or acceptable) endings? Do sad for everyone.......

    But he's been misrepresenting himself in general, whose to say he's not older.

    I don't think it is departmentalizing to avoid "internal" responsibility - I believe he knew he was responsible for her abduction and death (and whatever happened in between) and he just is floating something to try to wiggle free publicly and legally.

    Was Mollie raped? I don't believe I've heard what actually happened to her. I'm asking because it would be pretty difficult to rape someone in a blackout. I just don't believe his blackout story. There are a lot of things that just don't make sense. Also he must have done this kind of thing before if he knew he put her in the trunk. Maybe the rest of them got away. The guy was young. Maybe a budding serial killer. It was definitely a crime of opportunity.

    Great points. His name was spelled 2 different ways in different reports, as well.

    No they don’t. The best we hope for is justice. But of course it doesn’t bring the victim back, so it’s a small measure of satisfaction at best. There’s no happy endings in cases like this, simply the silver lining that there will be no more people victimized by the captured perpetrator (hopefully).

    It sounds like he had been stalking her and planning something. Rape and murder? She apparently knew who he was- so could not get away with rape and let her live. Did he have some sort of imagined grudge? Did he think he was irresistible and that he could converse and "charm her" into something? It doesn't really sound happenstance- but like stalking.

    I didn't save the link to his FB, but wasn't his first name spelled differently there, too?
