Iowa investigators see no link between the recent disappearance of 11-year-old Xavior Harrelson and the 2018 death of Mollie Tibbetts, for which Cristhian Bahena Rivera was convicted of murder in May.
Harrelson disappeared from a trailer park in Montezuma on May 27, one day before Bahena Rivera was found guilty by a jury.
The article goes on to state the following:
Bahena Rivera’s defense team asked for a new trial earlier this month, saying that the former live-in boyfriend of Harrelson’s mom, 50-year-old James Lowe, has allegedly been linked to sex trafficking in Iowa and could have something to do with Tibbetts’ death and disappearance.
Just before Rivera was to be sentenced for Tibbetts’ murder, two new witnesses came forward and claimed that another man, 21-year-old Gavin Jones, was responsible for Tibbetts’ murder.
The defense attorneys presented a theory that Tibbetts was kidnapped into a sex trafficking ring run by Lowe, who then allegedly ordered Jones and another man to kill Tibbetts.
However, officials threw cold water on that theory this week, saying that there is no connection between the cases, the report states.
The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation says other than the fact Mollie Tibbetts & Xavior Harrelson both live in Poweshiek County, they have nothing to indicate a connection between the two cases. https://t.co/tfHrDOn8tD
