On Thursday afternoon, a woman called 911 to report her neighbor, the “white” beast on the picture. 19-year-old Edwin Wren, came to her house stating there was an emergency in the home where he was staying. She said she ran to the neighbor’s house and immediately saw blood on the carpet.
Knowing that the couple who lived there had a baby girl they often left in Wren’s care, she started looking for her and found the infant crying in pain and bleeding profusely. Then she did the math: “white” person + baby = pedophilia. She contacted authorities.
The baby was taken by EVAC ambulance to the hospital where she underwent surgery to repair tears to her body, Gary Davidson, Volusia County sheriff’s spokesman said.
As for the “white” beast, well he took off shortly after asking the neighbor for help. He would be found later, shirtless, hiding in a Walmart bathroom. He told officers he had left the infant alone to go to McDonald’s and found her bleeeding when he returned to the home.
Officers retrieved surveillance footage from the restaurant and not surprisingly, Wren was never there. He then clammed up and refused to answer any further questions. Wren was arrested and placed in jail, without bail, on charges of sexual battery on a person younger than 12 and aggravated child abuse.
The baby’s parents were out running errands while all this was going on and the neighbor told 911 that the couple left the infant in Wren’s care a lot. The court has ordered the infant be placed in foster care, while the girl’s grandparents say they will fight for custody and may even press charges against the baby’s mother.
