The stepfather of a 13-year-old girl took his life, reportedly after reports surfaced that he was being investigated for raping and impregnating the child.
This publication was informed that the stepfather was left to care for the teen while her mother left for vacation in the United States last year.
According to reports received, the 13-year-old victim told relatives of the instances when she was molested but was ignored after he denied the accusations when confronted.
The teen continued to complain to relatives as the man would constantly attack her, but was on several occasions silenced about the ordeal.
Relatives of the teen, who is almost 24 weeks pregnant, reported that when the girl’s mother returned from her overseas trip, she made several more complaints against the man and even told her mother that the abuse had increased. But her complaints feel on deft ears.
This publication understands that it was only when the child confided in one of her school teachers, who then reached out to the Child Care and Protection Agency (CCPA), that an investigation was launched.
It is believed that the man ingested a poisonous substance after he was told that an investigation has been launched into the matter.
His body was found in a nearby cemetery where he allegedly consumed the substance and later died.
