“It was a surveillance video [that cracked the case],” Williams said. Fox ran a video of Williams exploring the scene near the murder in Iowa, while discussing the case(RELATED: Illegal Immigrant Charged With Murder Of Iowa College Student)

“Law enforcement officers got a break in the case of Mollie Tibbetts, the missing University of Iowa student. They were able to look at video footage from various residents in this neighborhood,” he said.

“Here’s what we know — that on July the 18th, Mollie Tibbetts jogging down East Des Moines Street and being followed, according to law enforcement officers, by a stalker, Christian Rivera,” he said. “Mollie Tibbetts came into this area where I’m at here now. She then made a left turn here on Boundary Street. And she jogged in this area, still stalked, according to law enforcement officers, by Christian Rivera.”


Williams said she continued to jog up 385th Avenue before she was abducted by Rivera in broad daylight. “The investigation continues,” he added.

Williams also criticized law enforcement for not taking better steps to prevent this tragedy.

“They were not using the right E-Verify that’s setup by Homeland Security and they also found that … Rivera gave them somebody else’s identification and Social Security number,” he concluded.
