UPDATE: Child in sexual assault dies
Unfortunately we have some sad news to report. The child in the case below has now died as a result of the abuse she suffered at the hands of Brian Crabtree who admitted to sexually abusing the toddler and then dropping her on her head, knocking the girl unconscious. There is some confusion as to whether the child passed on Tuesday or Wednesday, however the death has been confirmed. We expect the charges - as listed below - will be re-evaluated by prosecutors soon and likely upgraded to manslaughter or murder.
Lexington, Kentucky (The Weekly Vice) -- Brian Matthew Crabtree, an 18-year-old Kentucky man has been charged with rape and assault on a three-year-old girl.
According to police, Crabtree has been charged with first-degree rape, first-degree sexual abuse and first-degree assault after he allegedly admitting to police that he attacked and raped a three-year-old toddler. Police say Crabtree also admitted to dropping the child several feet to the floor.
According to police, officers were called to an apartment complex off Cummins Court in Lexington where they found an unresponsive child who belonged to Crabtree's roommate.
Police haven't released many details about what exactly took place, but said the attack likely occurred sometime between late Tuesday, early Wednesday morning. Authorities described the toddler's injuries as severe, including head trauma and multiple injuries to other parts of her body.
The child was originally taken to St. Joseph East Hospital, but was then transferred to UK hospital. As of Thursday, news of the little girl's condition has not been released.
Crabtree was booked into the Fayette County Detention Center. He appeared in court Wednesday afternoon, where he pleaded not guilty to the charges - despite his early admission of guilt, according to court documents.
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
We can only hope that hell reserves a special section where the ass-burning coals burn bright for twisted, toilet fodder like this. We're not impressed with his 'change of heart' not-guilty plea after lawyering up.
Police have been very tight lipped thus far on the case, so PLEASE, if any family members can shed some light on the little girl's condition, please let us know.
The only reports we have thus far is that the injuries to the child were graphic - and that the little girl was unresponsive when emergency personell arrived. We are VERY concerned about this case!
Our prayers go out to this little girl's family. As for you, Crabtree, there is no pit in hell deep enough or hot enough for the likes of you.
