Child rape victim dies in fire the night before accused rapist was to stand trial

While staying with her grandparents, a 10-year-old girl from Youngstown, Ohio, died in a fire. The grandparents were also killed.

The fire raged the night before Robert Seman Jr., 46, of Canfield, Ohio, was due in court to stand trial for allegedly raping the child over four years.

When Seman went to court that day, he had burns on his body.

The child’s mother, Lynn Schmidt, had moved back into Seman’s home.

I have to wonder about the control that Seman had over the woman.

Mother of girl, 10, who died in a house fire on the day her alleged rapist was set for trial had left child with grandparents to live with her daughter’s ‘attacker, on DailyMail.co.uk.

    I didn’t see in this or the related stories any statement that Seman was found to have burns on his body. However, it is mentioned in other news reports, such as this one:

    Source: Rape suspect had burns at court appearance

    Something doesn’t jibe here. We’re being told investigators say there was nothing suspicious about the fire… yet the burns on Seman’s body are surely suspicious as hell! Is this simply a difference between earlier and later reports, when the evidence in the matter became clearer? If it is, it’s kinda scary that investigators missed seeing anything suspicious about the fire the first time around!

    The fire chief noted yesterday that the investigation is ongoing. Items found are also being tested elsewhere. The preliminary report noted there was nothing suspicious, but that changed almost immediately. He noted he cannot disclose information at this time.

    Judicial system determining if the trial will even go forward now that victim is deceased. A very sick world we live in.

    The death sentence is not a steep enough punishment. He needs to spend four years in a federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison, then set on fire. I’m usually not so vulgar, but I work at a children’s hospital, and this really gets to me right now.

    This is also an example of a particularly stupid sociopath. He got out of a rape conviction with a murder conviction – hey it worked. Sometimes they are very smart and evil. Sometimes they are stupid and evil. All are evil.
