Default Mollie Tibbetts investigation: New details reveal Tibbetts,Rivera's girlfriend were Facebook friends

New details in the Mollie Tibbetts case indicate that she was
stabbed to death, and new details reveal that it's possible the
suspect's girlfriend knew Tibbetts.

Mollie Tibbetts died from "multiple sharp force injuries,"
according to a preliminary autopsy report released by the Iowa
State Medical Examiner Thursday. This would indicate she died
after being stabbed, ABC News reports.

Tibbetts' death was officially ruled a homicide, and Cristhian
Bahena Rivera has been charged with first-degree murder.

New details continue to come to light in the case. Tibbetts
attended the same high school as the suspect's girlfriend, Iris
Monarrez, ABC News learned on Friday morning. It appears the two
were friends on Facebook, but investigators stated that this
does not mean they were personally acquainted. Because Brooklyn,
Iowa, is such a small town, they may have connected simply
because they went to the same school.

Earlier this week, investigators said they were uncertain how
Tibbetts was killed or whether she was sexually assaulted.
They've made no mention of recovering a weapon linked to the

The examiner did not release additional details about the
injuries Tibbetts suffered or what caused them, but said further
examination of her body may result in additional findings.
Autopsy reports are confidential under Iowa law, except for the
cause and manner of death.

Tibbetts was last seen July 18 in Brooklyn, a rural town of
about 1,400 people, as she took a routine evening jog. It's
unclear whether she returned to the home where she was dog-
sitting for her boyfriend and her boyfriend's brother, who have
said they were both out of town. She was reported missing by her
family the next day after she didn't show up for work at a day
camp for children.

Her funeral will be held Sunday afternoon in Brooklyn, Iowa.
