The mother of slain Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts has taken into her home an undocumented Mexican teenager who had lived and worked with her daughter's accused killer.

The Washington Post reported on Friday that not long after her 20-year-old daughter was found stabbed to death in a cornfield outside Brooklyn, Iowa, in August 2018, Laura Calderwood welcomed into her home 17-year-old Ulises Felix.

He is an undocumented immigrant whose family had worked on the Yarrabee Dairy Farm alongside Mollie's suspected killer, 24-year-old Cristhian Bahena Rivera.

Rivera has been living in the US without a visa and working as a farmhand so he could send money to his parents in his native Mexico

Following Rivera's arrest on murder charges in August, Felix's parents fled to Illinois to escape the outpouring of anti-immigrant vitriol, leaving their teenage son behind so he could finish high school.

Mollie's younger brother, Scott, who attended the same school as Felix and was friends with the teen, immediately said he could stay in his mother's spare bedroom
