53-year-old Glen R. Ramey, pictured above (Left), has been arrested for allegedly raping and killing Sabrina Stauffenberg, an eight-year-old girl, who was snatched from her front porch while she was waiting for a ride to church. Police found Sabrina’s body on Wednesday by tracing her cell phone signal.
According to MailOnline, friends of the family told Fox News that Ramey, who has mental health problems, was dating a relative of the child.
Sabrina’s stepmother also confirmed to DailyMail that the rapist is a friend of the child’s father.
Shortly before Sabrina’s disappearance, she had called to inform her Grandmother that the church bus was late to pick her up, stating that she would wait until the bus arrived to take her to church.
Ramey has been taken into custody by Illinois State Police on Sunday.
He is accused of killing Sabrina whose body was found behind a vinegar plant earlier in the week. He is also being charged with predatory sexual assault of a child and murder while being remanded in custody at Richland County Jail.
