Donald Smith kidnapped a little 8-year-old girl named Cherish Perrywinkle. He raped and murdered her without even thinking about it. Donald lured the little girl to Walmart and left with her.
The medical examiner’s report was so graphic and it is hard to believe it, let alone to hear and see what he did.
We have only one question in our minds, does he deserve the death penalty?
Cherish Perrywinkle was a little and sweet girl who lived in Jacksonville, Florida. She went missing at a local Walmart in 2013. Her case made national headlines as she was just shopping with her mother and her two sisters.
Donald Smith approached her and offered help, and the struggling financial mother thought that he was the blessing she needed.
Little did she know that behind that kind man was a monster that would be her and her family’s nightmare.
He lured the family promising them a McDonald’s meal at the store and new outfits for the children.
He went with the little girl to go with Donald to get the food after they got the clothes at the store. But her daughter would never return there.
The worried mother called 911, but it was too late. Her body was found in front of a church the following day. He didn’t only kidnap and murder her, but she was raped to death.
Cherish was facing hell those moments, that even the medical examiner had it difficult to describe to the court.
Everything was enough to make your stomach churn. According to the doctor’s testimony, the little girl’s private parts were totally distorted due to the viciousness of the rape.
He then strangled her to death while raping her. It took the child three to five minutes to die.
The little girl had tried to fight back, but she couldn’t manage to do that. He had been secretly recorded in jail bragging about the crime and saying she had a lot for a white girl.
He had been arrested several times in the past 40 years. His previous charges were abuse and he has been on Florida’s registry of offenders.
The jury not only convicted him but unanimously recommended that he is executed for his crimes.
