Strange how you have to go to the foreign media to find stories like this. It’s almost as if the American media turns a blind eye to such atrocities. Oh, you can find a few local links from Indiana, but forget about national attention.
A 17-year-old boy has been charged with rape following a sickening assault on a 93-year-old woman.
Iquise Taylor of Anderson, Indiana, was charged as an adult on Monday after the July 16 attack on Amelia Rudolf at her home.
MailOnline does not normally name victims of sexual assault but Mrs Rudolph participated in a police news conference after Anderson was charged with rape, burglary, criminal confinement and strangulation.
Mrs Rudolf, said that she was afraid she would not see justice in her lifetime and thanked the police for everything they had done to catch her attacker.
She told WWLP.com: ‘I would like to go back because it is the house my husband built for me and my family. I have been happy all my life there until now.’
The elderly woman has been staying with family since she was attacked but is now planning to return home.
Police say the youth lived within in a block of the woman’s house. Investigators say he broke into her home by kicking in the back door and then sexually assaulted her.
