Her plaintive cries pierced the night, as she screamed, “Please don’t rape me!”
It was only after the sun came up that the partially clothed body of the young woman who spent her last moments begging for her life was found crumpled in a parking lot in Salt Lake, Utah.
On Sept. 28, police in South Salt Lake were called to a back parking lot at 2550 South 300 West in South Salt Lake City, Utah, about a report of a deceased, partially clothed female, the department says in a statement.
The woman has been identified as Kaitlyn Barron, 23, of San Antonio, Texas, The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Barron “had been severely beaten” and was an “obvious victim to a homicide,” the statement says.
She was also the “potential victim of rape,” according to a probable cause statement, Fox 13 Now reports.
