Stephen King dismisses Mollie Tibbetts murder, illegal immigration for a gun control reference

On Wednesday, author Stephen King took to Twitter to chime in about the shocking murder of Mollie Tibbetts, killed by an illegal immigrant, Cristhian Bahena Rivera.

“Mollie Tibbetts may well have been killed by an undocumented alien, and that’s a terrible thing. But we might remember that Stephen Craig Paddock was an American citizen. He killed 58.” King tweeted. @StephenKing

King appears to be attempting to draw attention away from Rivera’s immigration status and onto gun control as he mentions the Vegas shooter by name.

Rivera, a 24-year-old Mexican man who illegally came to the United States, was charged with Tibbetts’ murder on Wednesday after he confessed to following her on her run. In an arrest affidavit, Rivera said he remembered getting mad at her; what happened afterward was “blocked” from his memory.

The Iowa State Medical Examiner issued a preliminary report from the autopsy on Tibbetts’ body and determined that her death was a “homicide resulting from multiple sharp force injuries,”

The 20-year-old student at the University of Iowa, went missing after an evening jog on July 18, sparking an extensive month-long search in the region.

A body that officials believed to be hers was found on Tuesday in a rural area, hidden under corn stalks, and the autopsy confirmed her identity.

    Gee, the killer was employed by a leader in the anti-immigration movement a Republican. You shouldn’t leave out important details.
