 Crime Library -Sylvia Likens

On October 26, 1965, Indianapolis police answered a call saying that a girl had died. The call came from a pay telephone in front of a Shell station in a poor section of the city. The caller was a teenaged boy whose voice had not finished changing into that of an adult man. He sounded very nervous and directed the police to the address, 3850 East New York Street, at which they would find the dead female.

When the cops got to the dingy, rundown, clapboard home to which the anonymous caller had directed them, they found the emaciated dead body of 16-year-old Sylvia Marie Likens. She was covered with bruises and small wounds, later revealed to be cigarette and match burns that numbered over 100. There were also large areas where the outer layer of skin had peeled off. Likens also had a large letter "3" branded on her chest. However, the most remarkable injuries, by far, were the words in block letters that had been burned directly onto her stomach: "I'M A PROSTITUTE AND PROUD OF IT!"

Thank you for sharing that Cathy. Before I got the book, and before I saw An American Crime, that information on the CrimeLibrary was one of the first things I read about this case.

Here's how I found out about Sylvia... I was watching Jack Ketchum's The Girl Next Door one night and then the next day I looked up the real story behind that film. At the time that I was watching the movie, I wasn't around the internet, so I couldn't look it up until the next day. The place I was at had Tivo, so I was able to fast forward through the bad parts. However, that didn't make it any less horrible because I knew what was happening. It really sickened me. After finding out about the real story, I've never forgotten Sylvia. She is embedded in my heart and I will never forget her.

I found out about Sylvia from An American Crime. Ray, my boyfriend, made me watch the movie. I think he may regret that forever, because I have been interested in this case ever since.
