Multiple Arrests in Child Abuse Incident

On May 22nd, officers received a Delayed Outcry of an Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child report from a 16 year old female.  As a result of that outcry, our detectives have been working diligently to put all of the pieces of this series of events together.

This event  began with an aggravated sexual assault of a 14 year old child that occurred around August 2012, resulting in the child becoming pregnant. Several  family members decided to take matters into their own hands in order to terminate the pregnancy.  Sometime in early 2013, the family members physically assaulted the victim to the point where the victim gave birth to a stillborn child. The stillborn child was taken away and family members disposed of the remains. The victim was not rendered any medical attention at the time.

The victim is currently being cared for by CPS. Our Child Abuse detectives are still working on this case. They are continuing to gather evidence and interview witnesses. 

Yesterday, officers arrested the following individuals involved in this criminal activity.  The charges are as follows:
