Christina Regusters Pennsylvania


Christina Regusters, 21, a daycare worker in Pennsylvania has been charged with the kidnapping and rape of a little girl in the institution she worked at. Authorities say she clothed herself in Muslim garb and convinced a substitute she was the girl’s mother, intending to take her to lunch.

Jury selection has taken place and the trial is about to start. The little girl was found partially clothed in a playground after an 18 hour ordeal. She was able to describe what happened to her and details of the crime to the police, including the presence of a talking bird which led investigators to the arrest. 

Police and prosecutors believe there were other accomplices involved, but so far there have been no other arrests.
