The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

Christopher E. Tindall

A 16 year old boy, already on parole for a 2003 rape conviction, apparently broke into a Bellefontaine Ohio Pizza Planet. Just that part of the story should make you question why this kid was out on parole. Just was is the sentencing guidelines for Rape in Ohio?
But, like so many others, this story took a serious turn for the worse when police found the body of a 72 year old woman during their investigation. Christopher E. Tindall, it seems wasn't just robbing places that morning, rather he decided to break into the home of the Sunday school teacher and child care provider, and rape her. And then, because he's clearly not done enough bad things for the day- he decided to add murder to his list.
The teenager is currently charged with aggravated murder, rape and abuse of a corpse.

Again this is why I think that juveniles that commit crimes liek rape and murder need to be tried and convicted as adults.

I am curious what the terms "abuse of a corpse" would be related to regarding this case.

Many killers move on to mutiliating their victims postmortem as a means of acting out some fantasy.

This could be a sign that this particular young man will not be able to stop this sort of activity and needs to be put in prison for life. It seems his crimes have been escalating since his early teen years.
