10-Month-Old Girl Dies After Worst Sexual Assault Case in Decades
A 32-year-old man has been charged after a 10-month-old baby died in what the sheriff of Jackson County, West Virginia, called the worst sexual assault case he’s seen in two decades.
Benjamin Taylor was found Monday morning with the child in the basement of an apartment he shared with his girlfriend, who is the mother of the baby, according to West Virginia television station WCHS-TV. The home is in the small town of Ripley.
“My sister woke up and discovered every mothers worst nightmare. My poor sweet baby niece was found naked, bloody, and not breathing or responsive. She had been sexually assaulted and beaten almost to death,” the infant’s aunt wrote in a GoFundMe page that was initially set up to pay for the child’s medical expenses while she was on life support.

They are protected by New York State laws.
