Murder Victim Found With Words ‘I Touch Little Girls’ Scrawled On Chest

Staten Island, NY – An 80-year-old man was found beaten to death in the hallway of his Tompkinsville apartment building on Monday with the words “I touch little girls” scrawled across his chest.

The Office of Chief Medical Examiner said Robert Raynor, 80, died due to blunt trauma to the torso and head, the New York Post reported.

An upstairs neighbor found Raynor’s body at approximately 9:30 a.m. after hearing what sounded like a physical altercation hours before, according to the paper.

Raynor’s only item of clothing was a pair of pants, which had been pulled down below his waist, a neighbor told the New York Post.

In addition to having “I touch little girls” written across his chest, someone had also written “I touch” on his right foot and “I take dolls in my room for girls age 1-5” on his stomach, police sources said.

Raynor was not listed on New York’s sex offender registry, the New York Post reported.

He had been arrested at least 24 times over his life, but none of those arrests appeared to be related to the sexual abuse of children, according to the paper.

Raynor’s daughter, Shakera McFadden, vehemently denied allegations her father was a pedophile.

“My daddy never touched nobody. He never touched no little girls,” McFadden told the New York Post. “He ain’t no saint, but he ain’t no pedophile.”

She said her father was nearly immobile due to cancer.

“He could barely move his arms. He could barely move legs,” she said. “He could barely do anything.”

Police have not released a possible motive for the murder, nor have they named any suspects, the New York Post reported.
