    When I read the headline, I thought this was a tragic accident. So heartbreaking that it was a sex crime. Peace and prayers to this young girl's family.
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    Why don't they just go ahead and arrest the mother's boyfriend. I'm assuming that's who did it, although the article doesn't mention her having one. Call me cynical today.

    I'm with you. Just that kind of day.

    4:1 odds on a boyfriend or estranged husband.

    What gets me is that there were some inconsistencies in the grandma and mom's statements over who had access to the apartment. Poor little girl, obviously not being supervised if she was raped and strangled w/ her own jump rope. How could no one hear her cries?

    I re-read the article and it said it did not appear that the child had been sexually assaulted. Did I miss something?? Thanks

    So sorry! I must have misread. Is it possible we all did? Or did they correct a typo?

    No, you are absolutely correct - I read it to say she HAD been sexually assaulted, when in fact it said HAD NOT. Must be my lazy eyes again!

    I read she was raped too. We didn't all misread it.

    She wasn't sexually molested, apparently.

    I too thought I had read that she had been molested, now it's reading, "Police sources are now saying it does not appear that the child was sexually assaulted." I don't know if it was my mistake, or the article was corrected.

    In that case...

    I think a parent did it.

    The audio on that link still says there may have been sexual abuse, but the article says not so.

    How horrible for that little girl. Surely this can't be an accident.

    "Rape" was the exact word I recall reading when I first read the link. I;m thinking maybe the changed it.
