Immigration Enforcement Agents Visit Iowa Farm

BROOKLYN, Iowa (AP) — Immigration enforcement agents have visited the Iowa dairy farm that employed and housed the man charged with killing college student Mollie Tibbetts.

Agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, and the county sheriff’s office spent two hours at Yarrabee Farms in Brooklyn, Iowa on Thursday morning.

Yarrabee Farms said in a statement that federal authorities had asked to visit the farm Thursday. The company says agents met with employees and owners. The company says it’s cooperating with investigators. It says it can’t provide additional details because the investigation is ongoing.

Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation spokesman Mitch Mortvedt said that his agency’s officers were on the scene assisting investigators from the Department of Homeland Security and ICE, who took the lead.
