Do you know that Satan lives among us? Or at least, that's what the Pennsylvania state police thought when they arrested a 27-year-old man from Sullivan County.
According to AWM, Jeremiah Cordell of Forksville Pennsylvania was arrested and charged with the sexual assault and murder of a toddler. The police said that Jeremiah attacked and murdered an eighteen-month-old baby girl who lived in Bradford County.
The assault occurred in September of 2015 in the town of New Albany Pennsylvania and due to her age and nature of the crime, her identity has not been disclosed to media. She was found in her own bed, lying dead.
The authorities said that their investigation have also revealed that the infant suffered "traumatic head injuries consistent with both impact and shaking." Medical examiners have also found signs of sexual assault which indicated that she has been raped by the man that her mother have trusted to watch over her.
In the DNA tests conducted, it was also proven that the man's semen has been found in the child herself, as as well as on her towel and the outfit she had worn the night before. The authorities did not give any comments on why it took them so long to have Jeremiah arrested and charged.
According to them, the man's story has changed several times since they first interrogated him in September. Jeremiah initially said that he did not know what had happened to the child but then claimed that he may have accidentally dropped her when he was giving her a bath.
The man has been identified as the mother's fiancé. The community of New Albany reacted violently over this heinous crime. A mother, Natasha Burns, stated "It was pretty disgusting when we found out what happened recently to that baby. I don't think any baby deserves that at all."
Another resident, Cody Hall, who was also a friend of the victim's family, stated "I know the grandmother of the baby who was killed and hopefully he does get put to jail for life."
Jeremiah faces lots of charges, including second degree murder and deviant sexual intercourse. He is due back in court for more preliminary hearings on July 3 and would be trialed in Bradford County.
