I own nothing - no copyright intended.Song - Tell Me Why - Declan Galbraith Sylvia Marie Likens (January 3, 1949 - October 26, 1965) was an American murder victim from Indiana. She was tortured to death by Gertrude Baniszewski (née Van Fossan), Gertrude`s children, and other young people from their neighborhood. Her parents, carnival workers, had left Likens and her sister Jenny in the care of the Baniszewski family three months before her death in exchange for $20 a week.www.trutv.com/library/crime/no...www.sylvialikens.com/en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sylvia_L...Richard Hobbs died of lung cancer at the age of 21, four years after being released from the reformatory. After the Westside Middle School massacre, John Baniszewski, by then calling himself John Blake, made a statement claiming that young criminals are not beyond help and describing how he had turned his life around. He died at the General Hospital in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, following a lengthy illness with diabetes on May 19, 2005, at the age of 52. He had a wife and three children. Coy Hubbard had been in and out of prison since his release and was later charged and acquitted of the murder of two men. He died of a heart attack on June 23, 2007, at the age of 56 in Shelbyville, Indiana. He had a wife and five children, seventeen grandchildren and one great-grandchild. Paula Baniszewski, at seventeen the oldest of the Baniszewski children, received a sentence of twenty years to life for her part in Sylvia`s death. While incarcerated, she bore a baby girl (initially named Gertrude) who was later adopted. She unsuccessfully attempted to escape twice from prison in 1971. In 1972, she was paroled and assumed a new identity. She eventually married and has two children; reportedly she lives on a small farm in Iowa today. The murder charge against Gertrude`s second-oldest daughter, Stephanie Baniszewski, was dropped after she turned State`s evidence against the others. She became a school teacher and assumed a new name. She also married and had several children. The injury to person charges against the younger juveniles Anna Ruth Siscoe, Judy Darlene Duke, Michael John (Mike) Monroe, and Randy Gordon Lepper were dropped as well. Randy Lepper died November 14, 2010 in Indianapolis at the age of 56.
