On June 14th, 2010 Melissa Huckaby, who kidnapped and murdered eight year-old Sandra Cantu, was sentenced to life in prison for her crime.
In spite of Huckaby’s denial that she sexually abused Sandra, and according to several new sources, Sandra Cantu suffered greatly and was indeed sexually assaulted –most likely raped with a kitchen rolling pin.
After Sandra’s body was found last March, police searched the church and they found a rolling pin with Sandra’s blood on the handle and according to the court records, “there were injuries to the external genitalia which were consistent with the diameter of the rolling pin handles.”
Melissa Huckaby apparently drugged her child victim before allegedly raping her but claims that her victim did not suffer. Hmmm, let’s see. She kidnaps the little girl, confines her, puts her through terror, brings her to a church where she probably raped her with a rolling pin, and then strangles her with the blood-soaked cloth knotted into a noose that was discovered with Sandra”s body. Even if the child had been drugged, she still experienced something. Being drugged by your perpetrator doesn’t mean there is no trauma to the body or soul.
Melissa Huckaby pleaded guilty to murder and kidnapping but the sexual abuse charges and the death penalty were dropped in exchange for life in prison. Huckaby stood in court and said she didn’t molest the little girl, but she is a liar. One might ask, why would a person admit to kidnapping and murder, but not to the rape of a child? Simply because -in many ways- the rape of a child is worse than child murder.
Investigators feel that Sandra was murdered and raped in a church. This woman sounds like a Satanist to me, but the press isn’t going there. What so called “Christian,” as Huckaby was supposed to be, takes a child to a church where she violates the child’s vagina wih a foreign object and then murders her, only to stuff her body inside a suitcase? A Satanist does this, not a Sunday School teacher.
Detectives and reporters keep asking what the motive was for Huckaby to murder the child. Hello??? Is anyone home??? I believe it to be quite obvious that she is a sexual deviant and probably even a practicing Satanist.
Huckaby stated in the courtroom that she loved Sandra “a great deal.” If you love a child, you don’t kidnap, rape and murder them. I’ve had enough of this woman’s self-serving statements and lies.
