Man who recalls seeing Tibbetts before disappearance defends self
BROOKLYN, Iowa (KWQC) – Devin Riley did not know what was coming after giving a nationally-televised interview regarding the July 18 disappearance of University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts.
“Long stares and uncomfortable moments at the store” are just the beginning, Riley said.
He said his daughters have been awoken by “knocks on the door with cameras” while he was at work, and it has been painful reading hundreds of unkind comments on a social media post about his interview.
“Last I checked there were over 1,100 comments, and it was about 50 percent accusatory and demeaning about me,” Riley told KWQC Thursday evening.
“Today has been beyond crazy and stressful for me and my family. I didn’t expect this reaction.”
