A black man in Sandusky, Ohio raped and murdered a 23 year old white woman and then murdered her three year old toddler and 18 month baby in 2012. If the races were reversed, this trial would have been a major national news story. Instead it was a minor local story.
The perpetrator, Curtis Clinton, spent thirteen years in prison for strangling another woman to death in 1999. He had been released from prison only six months before the triple murder. He also raped a seventeen year old girl one week before the murder.
Clinton was convicted of the triple murder Monday. He will be sentenced shortly.
The adult victim, Heather Jackson, is believed have been purchasing drugs from Curtis Clinton.
