The suspect, Cristhian Bahena Rivera, 24, is an undocumented immigrant who authorities believe has been in the area for four to seven years, Rahn said. He would receive a mandatory life sentence if convicted.

For 34 days, federal, state and local authorities had scoured Poweshiek County for Tibbetts, and sifted through electronic data from her Fitbit, cellphone and social media accounts for any clue about what happened to the woman who was last seen alive while going for an evening run. Jack said he and his brother were both out of town, but he told the station he had opened a Snapchat message from Tibbetts at about 10 p.m. the night she went missing, and it showed she was inside the home watching his dogs.

The woman's body was found buried under corn stalks in a cornfield about 10 miles from Brooklyn, where Tibbetts was staying at her boyfriend's residence.

Microphones stand ready before the Mollie Tibbetts press conference located in Montezuma, Iowa on August 21, 2018. She was last seen jogging near her home in Brooklyn, Iowa.

Last week, authorities said they were focusing their investigation on five areas in and near Tibbetts' hometown.

Rivera's black Chevrolet Malibu appeared in the video, helping lead investigators to him, Rahn said. Willey called it a "tough" ending to the exhaustive search. Tibbetts is also seen jogging in one of the clips from the surveillance camera, Rahn said.

In an interview earlier this month, Mollie Tibbetts' father said he believed his daughter may have left willingly with someone she knew.

Moore and John Oda were the closest competitors at that point after they both posted rounds of 63 to tie for second place. Snedeker beat Webb Simpson (62) and C.T.

At around 5:30 p.m. on July 17, Mollie's brother, Jake Tibbetts, who shares a auto with her, dropped her off at Dalton's home.

Her father said that his family's meeting with Pence was "touching" and "genuine", and the vice president was "just another father that was just hurt and bewildered by Mollie's story", Fox reported.

DCI spokesman Mitch Mortvedt said Tuesday that he couldn't yet comment on any potential suspect in the case, saying only "there is nobody charged at this time".

The Division of Criminal Investigation received more than 4,000 tips during the investigation and regularly had 30 to 40 investigators devoted to the case. They focused much of their efforts in and around Brooklyn, searching farm fields, ponds and homes. She won state speech competitions, was involved in theater and ran cross-country. He said he came to, realized that he had killed her and put her body in the trunk of his vehicle, according to the documents.

He said officials approached Rivera on Monday and that he complied with them.

As the weeks passed, a reward for information on her whereabouts kept growing and reached almost $400,000.

Willey says he had no other details about the discovery, but called it a "tough" ending to the search for the University of Iowa student.
