BROOKLYN, Iowa –New details in the Mollie Tibbetts case indicate that she was stabbed to death, and new details reveal that it’s possible the suspect’s girlfriend knew Tibbetts.
Mollie Tibbetts died from “multiple sharp force injuries,” according to a preliminary autopsy report released by the Iowa State Medical Examiner Thursday. This would indicate she died after being stabbed, ABC News reports.
Tibbetts’ death was officially ruled a homicide, and Cristhian Bahena Rivera has been charged with first-degree murder.
ABC News also provided the following information:
New details continue to come to light in the case. Tibbetts attended the same high school as the suspect’s girlfriend, Iris Monarrez, ABC News learned on Friday morning. It appears the two were friends on Facebook, but investigators stated that this does not mean they were personally acquainted. Because Brooklyn, Iowa, is such a small town, they may have connected simply because they went to the same school.
Earlier this week, investigators said they were uncertain how Tibbetts was killed or whether she was sexually assaulted. They’ve made no mention of recovering a weapon linked to the death.
