Well being Aide of Murdered Staten Island Man in Custody on Unrelated Little one Abuse Prices
The family doctor of a murdered Staten Island man with the words “I touch little girls” on his chest was taken into police custody hours after his body was found, but the charges are unrelated to murder.
A law enforcement source with knowledge of the investigation says 28-year-old Renee Ayarde, who cared for and lived with 80-year-old Robert Raynor, was caught beating her 3-year-old daughter. She is not a suspect in Raynor’s murder, but she has been charged with child molestation.
According to the criminal complaint, witnesses saw Ayarde “pick up a small child and drop it on the concrete” and “throw a full water bottle in the child’s face.”
When someone tried to call for help, Ayarde allegedly said, “Are you calling the police? Give me your phone ”before you knock the witness on the ground. When the police arrived, they saw bruises on the young girl’s neck and old injuries on her knees, face and cheek, all in various stages of healing.
Her daughter told the police, “I was outside and mom threw me on the ground.”
All of this happens as the police begin searching evidence of Raynor’s murder. Police said Raynor had no history of sex crimes and that he was not a registered sex offender. His daughter has also defended him, telling the NY Daily News that he could never molest children.
A spokesman for the Office of Chief Medical Examiner said Wednesday that Raynor died from blunt trauma to the head and torso and classified his death as murder. Aside from the disturbing message scrawled on his chest, Raynor had the words “I touch” written on one foot, police sources said.
Police are looking for the perpetrator who killed a man in a Staten Island hallway. Phil Lipof reports.
“I came out of the house and before I walked out the door I just turned and saw the body,” said the man who made the disturbing discovery. He said he did not see the message that sources say was written on his chest.
The investigation is ongoing and no arrests have been made in connection with Raynor’s death.
Meanwhile, Ayarde has been charged with assault on two counts and one on child endangerment charges.
