    The local KWWL news just said a few minutes ago that the ME did clarify that Mollie was stabbed. They did not say that it was with a knife but say that sharp force injuries were usually with an item such as a knife. I have not seen that in any written article yet confirming that she was "stabbed". Hopefully this hasn't been mentioned yet. I've missed the entire last thread.

    I don't think they even know. They keep reporting 4-7 years. Well that is a wide gap of time.

    Since he is using a fraudulent identity, and could have used others, there's no way to know where he's been or what he's been up to.

    We don't know how long he has been here or how old he is. He looks a lot older than 24.

    I think the intent was strategic as well. However, I did see in an article several posts back that when asked by a reporter why she and the child were present, she said that even though they have not been together for 2 years, she did it for her child. I know that sounds ridiculous and doesn't make sense, but I think I know what she is trying to say. In that particular culture, women often have respect for their spouses or their babies fathers, even when that parent is in prison or has done bad things. In fact, it is not even necessarily unacceptable if a spouse has relationships outside of marriage, as long as they respect and support their family. I know that in itself is disrespectful and hard to understand, and certainly I don't want to generalize that is always the case, but in my experience I have seen this general attitude and it always amazes me that the women don't have a problem with this. The women rule over the home, the father is the provider.... having said that, I think what she meant by her statement was, He is the father of my child, and so I will respect that fact by being present. Of course it is blatantly obvious to us that it is horrible to allow your child to see such a thing. But we are not really talking about intelligent people. When I read her response I thought why in the world would she think it would be good for the child to attend? Then I realized what her reasoning might be. Here where I live we have a daycare ( playroom) at the court house where your child can play and never have an inkling of what's going on. Problem solved.

    Why wouldn’t LE have obtained search warrant for the perp trailer/house upon confession & discovery of body? Wouldn’t they want to search property ASAP for additional evidence. Why would they need autopsy results first?

    as I understand it is different departments for lack of knowing the term. that local state had already searched and this was a additional search.

    For many psychopaths, the ultimate possession is death of the victim. It says, "Now you're mine!" Good ol' Ted Bundy and other SK's (not saying that CR is a SK) progressed to that stage quickly. Maybe for this case, it was a hide-the-evidence situation. Whatever, the world has lost another good person. SMH

    I wonder how many other names / identities he has used before he was 20. It may be hard to track himif he used SSNs of other people.

    Did not realize that. Even so, just seems odd they couldn’t receive warrant for property sooner given the discovery & confession.

    Legal Eagles I need your help please. According to the Affidavit of Probably Cause it states the crime of Murder in the 1st degree and the date and time of incident to be July 18 between 19:45 and 20:28.

    Does this mean that the murder occurred at that time? No guessing please. Thank you!

    Oops I messed up again. Sorry about that last reply. I had said that I don't believe anyone here is blaming Mollie for her own death. I have not even seen that implication , rather that Rivera is blaming the victim for angering him.

    I doubt the jury will buy into his victim blaming. The bottom line is he murdered her. Because of his actions, she’s no longer with her family and the people that loved and cared for her. He’s a monster.

    Can’t imagine the farm providing vehicles to workers other than for work related purposes in light of potentially staggering liability.

    If Mollie felt safe enough to tell him that she would call the police..I wonder if he just acted like a pest at first. I know if I felt scared of someone following me I would not tell them to leave me alone or I would call the police..you never know how the person might react. I think that Mollie might have felt she could handle the situation until he became the psychopath that she never saw coming. Of course Mollie is NOT to blame for ANYTHING-that MONSTER is! My opinion only.
