The illegal alien charged with murdering 20-year-old college student Mollie Tibbetts lived on a plot of land owned by a prominent Republican Party fundraiser.

Illegal alien Cristhian Bahena-Rivera — a 24-year-old from Mexico who has been charged with first-degree murder in Tibbetts’ death — lived in a trailer on property owned by the Lang family, which owns and operates Yarrabee Farms, where the illegal alien worked under a false name.

Eric Lang, one of the chief executives of Yarrabee Farms, is married to Nicole Schlinger, NBC News reveals, who runs the GOP fundraising firm Campaign Headquarters in Brooklyn, Iowa.

A spokesman for the dairy farm told NBC News that Bahena-Rivera lived on the property owned by the Lang family for the entire time that he was employed at the farm.

Schlinger said she does not have a role in the Lang family’s dairy farm business, but was merely given an ownership interest in the property where Bahena-Rivera lived years ago.

The farm owner, Dane Lang, originally said that he used the E-Verify system to check whether Bahena-Rivera was an illegal alien, saying that he passed the screening.

Later, as Breitbart News reported, Lang admitted that his farm did not use E-Verify to check the legal status of Bahena-Rivera, noting that the illegal alien used a fake or stolen photo ID and provided a fraudulent Social Security card. Federal immigration officials confirmed to Breitbart News that Bahena-Rivera is, in fact, an illegal alien.

The illegal alien allegedly entered the U.S. when he was a child, telling neighbors that he crossed illegally into the country through the southern border with his cousins, Breitbart News noted. Investigators say Bahena-Rivera has been living illegally in the U.S. for four to seven years.

The latest autopsy report of Tibbetts reveals that Bahena-Rivera stabbed the young woman to death and left her body in a nearby cornfield, covering her in corn stalks on the night of July 18.
