A new report claims that the illegal alien charged with murdering an American begged for taxpayers to cover the cost as he builds his defense.
According to Breitbart, the illegal alien charged with murdering 20-year-old college student Mollie Tibbetts has reportedly been granted $5,000 in American taxpayer dollars to fight the first-degree murder charges against him.
Last month, law enforcement officials announced that Tibbetts’ body was found in a cornfield in her rural hometown of Brooklyn, Iowa after she was last seen jogging on July 18.
Illegal alien Cristhian Bahena-Rivera, a 24-year-old from Mexico, has been charged with first-degree murder in Tibbetts’ death after police say he admitted to confronting and chasing down the young woman.
In an explosive shared by Radar Online, it shows a full report of Bahena-Rivera’s request for financial assistance from taxpayers. They also included a copy of the court document reportedly filled out by Bahena-Rivera, making the request. You can view that document here.
So what is the money for? According to the report and Bahena-Rivera’s lawyer, it isn’t to obtain counsel but his own investigators. This seems odd that a judge would even grant that request considering the accused lead investigators to her body.
The documents also included a handwritten financial affidavit filled out by Rivera himself, revealing a shocking twist – he was born in 1997, not 1994 as he previously told authorities. Rivera’s handwritten statement listed his home address as “jail” and noted that he nor those who reside in his house of horrors have a job or income.
Mollie disappeared after going for a run on the evening of July 18, and was reported missing after she failed to show up for work the next day.
Authorities say a body was found in a farm field in the early morning hours of August 21, with Rivera acting as a guide for investigators. The body, believed to be Mollie, was covered by corn stalks. A preliminary autopsy report released Aug. 23 found that she died from “multiple sharp force injuries.”
Authorities first became aware of Rivera after he was seen in surveillance video turned over to police by a neighbor. Investigators say the video shows Rivera following Mollie before she disappeared.
After his arrest, Rivera allegedly told investigators he approached Mollie, running behind and alongside her.
The suspect says he remembers her pulling out her phone, telling him she would call police if he did not leave her alone.
Then Rivera claims to have “blocked” his memory. He told investigators this is something he does when he is upset, KCRG reports.
