Iquise Taylor

One of President Lucifer’s sons, 17-year-old Iquise Taylor, brutally raped, strangled, and burglarized a 93-year-old woman, Amelia Rudolf, in Anderson, Indiana.

The rape took place in July, but we’re only now learning about it — and only via a local news report and the blogosphere ’cause we haven’t and will NEVER see or hear about it on national teevee. But if it were a white teen who raped an elderly black woman — Gosh, Golly, and OMG — this would be on national teevee 24/7.

Fox59 WXIN Indianopolis reports that on Monday, August 16, 2013, at a news conference, Anderson police announced formal charges against a 17-year-old suspect named Iquise V. Taylor, in connection with the July rape of a 93-year-old Anderson woman. Taylor is being charged as an adult, for rape, burglary, criminal confinement and strangulation.

According to court documents, “[The victim’s] airway was blocked by the suspect’s hand and she could not breathe while the suspect confined her to her bed as he raped her.”

Anderson Police Chief Larry Crenshaw said although Taylor “lived close to” the victim, Amelia Rudolf, he (Crenshaw) “didn’t know if Rudolf was specifically targeted.” (Translation: This means Police Chief Crenshaw is refusing to call this a “hate crime.”)

Crenshaw said police had collected DNA samples from several people and connected Taylor to the rape through a DNA match. Crenshaw called it a “horrific and unimaginable attack” and said the department was satisfied to bring some kind of closure to Amelia Rudolf and her family. He said he’d met with Rudolf and told her the department would “bring justice in this life or the next.”

Amelia Rudolf

The victim’s daughter, Tresa Hale, described her mother as “brave” and “strong” and described her as a hero: “The fact that the Anderson Police Department caught the criminal (that) he will be off the streets… that’s one less criminal because of her surviving and enduring that. He won’t be able to hurt anyone else. Judgment Day will come for him. I know in my heart that if he lived life in prison that it will be terrifying for him.”

Fox59 usually does not release the names of victims in these cases but Amelia Rudolf, 93, chose to identify herself Monday, hours after Taylor was in court.

Rudolf expressed gratitude to the police, saying “If it wasn’t for the police department, I don’t know what I would’ve done. I didn’t think I’d live long enough to see who did it.” She wondered about her rapist’s upbringing, “I was just wondering how he was brought up…if his parents had taught him to do right.”

Rudolf acknowledged that going back to the home where she was attacked will be difficult: “I would like to go back because it’s the house my husband built and I’ve been happy there. I don’t know if I can go back there. They tell me to take my time.”
