Mollie Tibbetts' boyfriend took lie detector test and it may have ruled him out as a suspect in her death
When the media outlet asked him who administered the polygraph test, the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation or FBI, Jack could not answer.
Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts' — whose body was found on August 21 — boyfriend took a lie detector test recently and was questioned by authorities about Tibbetts and he claims he passed, according to RadarOnline reports.
Tibbetts' high school sweetheart, Dalton Jack, however, is still not sure whether he is a person of interest in the case of his girlfriend whose was found dead after her disappearance a month ago from Brooklyn, Iowa.
Jack, while talking to Radar, said, "You know they got to clear all their bases. They got to start eliminating stuff before they start narrowing in. I understand that entirely. If they need to check me out or anybody else out, they’ll pretty much check you off the list. I’m more than willing to comply."
Mollie Cecelia Tibbetts was last seen on July 18, 2018, running on Pershing Drive in Brooklyn, Iowa. She was wearing shorts and a sports bra, though the color of the clothing is unknown.

Tibbetts went missing on July 18 when she went jogging in the evening at around 7:30 pm in the small town of 1,400 residents and has not been heard from since, according to reports. Authorities at the time marked her disappearance as "suspicious."
When the media outlet asked him who administered the polygraph test, the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation or FBI, Jack could not answer, according to reports.
"I don’t know who it was. I don’t know what department it was. I don’t know what I’m allowed to tell you on that situation and what I’m not, because obviously, they didn’t make it public," he added.
A spokesperson for the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation told the outlet, "With this being an on-going investigation, we will not be discussing any investigative information at this time."
At the time Jack said that he is going to assist in finding Tibbetts and added that he was not going to count out the involvement of a friend who might be holding Tibbetts hostage.
"Well you know, I’m not going to count that out," he said. "When John Wayne Gacy was a serial killer in [his] community for 20 years… nobody thought anything of him. I’m not going to count any of that out. I’m not going to say there’s a person like that living in [my] community. I’m not going to say that there is.”
The 20-year-old second-year student's case captivated the nation as Tibbetts' friends and family describe her as positive-natured, spunky young woman who was quite outgoing.
