Justices deal blow to outdated claims of child sexual abuse
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania's high court on Wednesday dealt a blow to victims of child sexual abuse, throwing out a lawsuit by a woman whose lower court legal victory had given hope to others with similarly outdated claims who'd sued in the wake of a landmark report that documented decades of child molestation within the Catholic church in Pennsylvania. The 5-2 decision ended plaintiff Renee Rice's legal effort to recover damages from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown for allegedly covering up and facilitating sexual abuse she said had been inflicted on her by a priest in the late 1970s.
The body of America Mafalda Thayer was later found on the sidewalk with multiple stab wounds, Shakopee Police Department said in a statement released on Thursday. Her head was reportedly laying next to her body near a car, according to a search warrant cited by local outlets.
Officers also discovered a knife sheath in a nearby yard and a knife in an alley trash can.
Police believe Saborit was in a long-term relationship with Thayer, and that the killing wasn't a random act of violence, ABC5 reported.
Investigators have also confirmed they believe Saborit knew his victim and this wasn't a random act.
Court records revealed that Saborit was previously convicted of gross misdemeanor domestic assault, Fox9 reported. In U.S. law, gross misdemeanors are considered more serious than regular misdemeanor crimes.
Lawsuits Pile Up Against Twice-Indicted Principal Accused of Sexually Abusing at Least 24 Students Over 12-Year Period
An upstate New York elementary school principal is facing multiple criminal charges for allegedly abusing at least two dozen students over at least 12 years, and now the civil lawsuits have started rolling in. Kirk Ashton, who had been the principal at Northwood Elementary School since 2004, has been in custody at the Niagara County Jail since April, when he was first indicted and charged with abusing at least nine children over four years. He was indicted again in June, and at least three civil lawsuits have been filed against Ashton and other school district employees.
Thayer was a Cuban immigrant who worked at the local Dollar Tree and MyPillow in Shakopee. Domestic abuse had been an ongoing problem between her and Saborit, a coworker told SW News Media.
Faith Howie, a friend and neighbor of Thayer, recalled that the 55-year-old had come to her apartment looking for help about a month ago.
"She came around 1:30, 2 in the morning and knocked. She goes, 'Can I sleep here tonight? I'm afraid he is going to get up and start in again," Howie told Fox9.
Previous Domestic Assault Charges
Court records reveal Saborit was convicted on domestic assault charges in 2017 and was currently facing arson charges for allegedly trying to burn his apartment down in 2020, the publication added.
In a disturbing twist, video of the attack circulated online moments after the brutal incident took place.
"We are aware that a bystander took a video of this incident," ShakopeeChief Jeff Tate told Bring Me the News, a Minnesota news website. "We have that video. It is deeply disturbing that the first instinct was to post that on social media."
