ASHLYNN PETERS WAS BRUTALLY RAPED BY HER MOTHER’S BOYFRIEND, JORDAN PRINCE, BEFORE HE STRANGLES HER TO DEATH – CCA0092 – UPDATED 10.03.2013
ASHLYNN PETERS WAS BRUTALLY RAPED BY HER MOTHER’S BOYFRIEND, JORDAN PRINCE, BEFORE HE STRANGLES HER TO DEATH
Ashlynn Peters was 4 months old when she was taken from this world on December 3, 2012. For the 4 months that she was with us, she knew nothing but pain, hate and torture. This baby girl suffered everyday of her life, never having a reprieve from the abuse that eventually shut down her tiny body.
Who is responsible you ask? Ashlynn’s mother, Jessica Howell and her mother’s boyfriend, Jordan Prince. Once again a sad excuse for a mother allowed her boyfriend to rape, torture and murder her child.
Prince was watching baby Ashlynn, while Howell slept, and became frustrated when she would not stop crying, so his solution, strangle the baby to death. That’s bad enough, but do you want to know why Ashlynn wouldn’t stop crying … she was in excruciating pain from Prince raping her, more specifically, sodomizing her. Ashlynn had no chance. Had she not been strangled to death, the massive injuries to her anus would have killed her.
Reports described the injuries “Ashlynn was sexually assaulted causing multiple tears to her anus, a massive laceration to her rectum with massive hematoma to the area of the pelvis. The injuries to the anus and rectum of Ashlynn were sufficient to eventually cause her death even without the strangulation.” Ashlynn’s injuries didn’t stop there. This beautiful baby girl suffered hemorrhages to her face, neck, chest and back, and blunt force trauma to her head, causing a laceration to her ear and a hemorrhage near her skull. This is one of the worst cases I have ever covered, and I’ve seen some bad ones, but to rape a 4 month old baby girl and then strangle her to death when she cries in pain … there is a whole new level of hell for these monsters.
Prince was arrested and charged with first-degree murder, abuse of a child and forcible sodomy. Howell was not arrested immediately, however as soon as police uncovered the extent of her participation in her daughter’s abuse, she was taken in and charged with abuse and second degree murder. Here’s the thing, Prince had a previous conviction for sexual offense against a minor after being found guilty of abusing a 4 year old in Idaho, and Howell KNEW about this. It just gets worse, police uncovered text messages Howell had sent to Prince that suggested her willingness to allow him to rape Ashlynn in an effort to “spice up their relationship”. Prosecuting Attorney Tim Lohmar stated “In those text messages she suggested and encouraged some unspeakable things. It is very, very disturbing.” Let’s let that sink in.
The magnitude of evil that was displayed in this attack is hard to wrap your mind around. This beautiful, innocent baby girl would have had a better chance being raised by apes – and I literally mean that. Every part of me screams out in anger and I just can’t understand how some don’t feel these monsters should face the exact same treatment that they doled out to these innocent children. Prince deserves to suffer every minute just as much as he made Ashlynn suffer, and Howell, well, she needs to suffer in the same way for encouraging this horrendous attack. I am willing to bet, literally, that Prince would be looking to save his own ass, and may think twice about what he was about to do and the punishment he would face. These monsters are selfish and evil, and we will never be able to make them care about their victims, but they care about themselves, and if that’s what it takes to prevent even one attack as the one made on Ashlynn, then I would say my eye for an eye theory would be well worth it.
Howell and Prince are both currently sitting in prison awaiting their trials, and you can be sure we will be following this one to the bitter end. Although I don’t see how we can ever achieve full justice for Ashlynn, I will see to it that there are people who love this baby girl advocating for her. Ashlynn didn’t have a voice, until now. We are her voice.
