STATEN ISLAND, NEW YORK: Eighty-year-old was found dead on July 19 by his neighbor. Upon further investigation, authorities discovered the words 'I touch little girls' written on his body with a marker along with cuts to his forehead. Raynor's neighbor said it looked like he was murdered by someone and it wasn't an ordinary death. This is one of the most bizarre deaths in recent times and his house nurse Renee Ayarde was arrested for assaulting her toddler daughter just hours after Raynor's death. She was arrested by the police on July 21 on charges not related to Raynor's death but police were probing if she had any connection to his bizarre killing.
Who killed Robert Raynor?
Renee Ayarde has not been named as a suspect in Robert Raynor's death which was officially announced as a homicide by police on July 21. Ayarde lived with Raynor with her 3-year-old daughter who she allegedly dropped on the concrete. She allegedly dragged her along Hester Street near Eldridge Street on the Lower East Side about 3:45 pm on July 19 and then threw a full bottle of water at her face, according to authorities. A passerby attempted to call 911 as the little girl's screams intensified but Ayarde snatched the cellphone out of their hands and knocked them to the ground. "Are you calling the police? Give me your phone,” Ayarde said according to court papers.
