DES MOINES, Iowa – A member of Mollie Tibbetts‘ family has spoken out about the tragic death of her niece. Mollie’s aunt Billie Jo Calderwood posted a message Tuesday night to Facebook.

The message has since been deleted or hidden from public view, but it stated:

“Please remember, Evil comes in EVERY color. Our family has been blessed to be surrounded by love, friendship and support throughout this entire ordeal by friends from all different nations and races. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.”

The suspect in Tibbetts’ murder, 24-year-old Cristhian Rivera, was arrested Tuesday and charged with first degree murder. DCI investigators say Rivera is an illegal alien from Mexico, who has been living in the area for four to seven years.
