Jeremiah TaylorNew Castle, IN — Jeremiah Taylor, a man convicted of child molestation last year, was beaten to death inside an Indiana prison.

According to police, the 37-year-old was found unconscious at the bottom of a staircase at the state prison in New Castle late Thursday night. He was taken to Henry County Hospital then flown to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, where he died Saturday morning.

Investigators believe the inmate’s injuries were “not the result of an accident, but were the result of Taylor having been battered shortly before being found in the stairwell,” an Indiana State Police release said.

Taylor was charged with molesting a preschooler in 2009, but was not apprehended until 2011. He pleaded guilty to charges of child molestation in June of last year, and was sentenced to 20-years in prison with 12 years suspended. Taylor had been at the prison since July of last year and was scheduled to be released in 2018.

Before anyone assumes he was murdered because of his admitted crimes, Mike Smith, public information officer at the New Castle Correctional Facility, said a large segment of the New Castle prison population consists of sex offenders. So who knows why he was really targeted. Maybe even sex offenders have a code, or maybe he just pissed off the wrong person.

But who cares why he was beaten to death, right?  While I am not for vigilante justice (even though in some cases I totally understand why it is carried out), I just cannot feel anything but relief knowing that this man will never again molest another child.

    Persons in jail for sexual predatory offenses can have “good time” removed from their sentence if caught having sex with each other. My guess is that he fucked over yet another human (deservedly or not) again.

  • Sam

    Who knew, an honour code amongst sex offenders.

    Convicted rapist, whilst kicking the shit out of Taylor: “At least! I! Rape! Adults!”

    Too bad, so sad… Not! Good riddance.

    I just did some research on the recidivism rate of sex offenders and was shocked. Out of all crimes committed the recidivism rate for sex offenders is the lowest – they are less likely to re-commit the crime, less likely to be re-arrested.

    Recidivism rates for those offenders in a treatment program are even lower than ones not in treatment. So the concept that treatment doesn’t work is invalid.

    According to several different studies, the belief that offenders are repeat offenders, treatment doesn’t work, keeping offenders away from environments where children congregate as a deterrent to re-offend is untrue as offenders don’t find victims in such environments.

    Here’s the link to one study: http://www.corrections.com/news/article/24500-facts-and-fiction-about-sex-offenders

    I’m finding it very difficult to accept this information.

  • sweekymom

    I’m trying to give a shit, but I think I’m going to need some undercooked chicken, laxatives and several hours on the pot before I’m moved to produce anything that can adequately symbolize how I fell about this man’s death.

  • PureDrivenSnow

    The results of studies on the recidivism rate for sexual offenders are all over the place. There are studies which place the recidivism of rapists as low as 7% and as high as 35%. Incest tends to have the lowest recidivism rate among sexual offenses which makes sense, i.e. availability of victims.

    I sort of wish more inmates would inflict this kind of punishment more frequently on pedos.

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    It was probably funded by a grant from NAMBLA.

  • GGMon

    Everyone gives prisoners a lot of shit (no surprised considered the lot of them shouldn’t even be alive with the crimes against humanity they’ve commited) but even prisoners have standards and they don’t take kindly to wife beaters, child molesters, and child murderers. It’s not nice to wish death on people, but some do deserve it more than others

  • Patrick Richardson

    Nice spin by the Public Info Officer. Send all the child molesters to that prison and let’s find out.

  • KKef

    Yay! Just Yay!

  • Evan Oswald

    whoever did this should get time off their sentence. i consider it community service – no question.

  • Uncle Fester

    A large portion of the population might be sex offenders, but are they kiddy diddlers? Sex offenders can range from violent rapists to some poor sap who peed on a fence at a stock car race. Every group has an hierarchy. Even a man who rapes women might consider himself above a pedophile. Or maybe the guy just farted really bad and they killed him for that. Who knows… who cares.

  • I was on another website where there was a pity party for this sexual predator. It’s refreshing to read the comments once Big Bubba behind bars got a hold of this nerd who preyed on kids justice was served!

  • Missi West

    Ahhh, these stories always me smile.

  • midniteshadows

    Yeah, I know. It doesn’t make sense. It seems there is no concrete answer. Some states report lower recidivism, others higher. I can’t seem to find out how these studies were conducted, what the parameters were, if one conviction was for only 1 victim or multiple victims, total amount of victims, etc. Common sense and instinct tells me the recidivism is a lot higher than what is being reported.
    Hence the difficulty accepting the studies.

    Here’s a concept that may help to explain it and, with your experience, you may be more likely to (already know or) except it: A person who molested a child isn’t necessarily a pedophile. Legitimate pedophiles will have a relatively high rate of recidivism because they are compelled, just as men are drawn to women (and vice versa) or homosexuals to their own gender. It resembles a sexual orientation.

    However, there are plenty of situations where an individual is drunk, or has made an inappropriate emotional attachment to a child and becomes inappropriate with them. These people are not necessarily pedophiles at all. They are people of otherwise normal sexual orientation who, in a moment of incredibly poor judgment, do something horrible. For these kinds of people, treatment is quite successful, as children are not their preference to begin with.

    Even legitimate pedophiles often understand how socially abhorrent their tendencies are and their impact on children, and don’t wish to have that kind of impact despite the attraction. For some of them, treatment can be of benefit to them as well, as it can give them options and the fortitude to resist urges.

    It’s an ugly, ugly issue… but when we can set our repulsion aside, we can focus on real solutions. Because of our Constitution, killing them is not an option.

  • G.I.R.L.

    But did those other sex offenders target children or adults? In that, lay the difference.

  • Minerva

    Less likely to reoffend, or be caught? People notoriously underreport sexual assaults because the victims are young and don’t understand, or fear they won’t be believed. Someone who is robbed is going to report the crime ASAP… A sexual assault victim may ever report or wait years. So I call bullshit because this whole train of thought is based on reporting and what the offender says.

  • G.I.R.L.

    Yes, killing doesn’t actually solve the problem either; therefore, i agree that legit solutions need to be focused on. When i watch shows like “To catch a predator” i sometimes wonder if many of the men would’ve developed some sort of inappropriate attraction if the dummy decoy didn’t further influence them and make them feel as if they “understood” them on a personal level; in that case, the suspect isn’t attracted to the underaged, but attracted to the person whom they’ve been sharing their personal stories with. As you mentioned, poor judgement. This is an interesting case that I’m gonna do some research on.

  • G.I.R.L.

    No no, then they’d just repeat what led them to be put behind bars. Lex Luthor killing Joker doesn’t make Lex the “good” guy, just the lesser of two “evils”.

  • fuck the constitution…just kill them

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    Oh, come on, we all know the truth–the stairs did it!

  • This should be a message to the courts. Even the prisoners know that justice isn’t truly served till piss ants like this are dead

  • kimbev69

    awesome news…that’s like 2 in a week right? and what’s with a 20 yr sentence with 12 of them suspended? wtf is up with that stupid reasoning..

  • kimbev69

    i think it’s just that they are smarter and don’t get caught as easily…also with the way b/f’s and g/f’s are these days…finding a man or woman who allows you to abuse their child is happening so damn often it’s disgusting…or women that are selling their kids on craigslist for drugs and shit…we hear about these cases from time to time..but can you imagine how many we don’t hear about…

  • kimbev69

    it’s really less likely to be caught again…i strongly believe that, once a kiddy diddler always a kiddy diddler…your tastes don’t change not with this shit

  • kimbev69

    my stepdad had a way of finding his victims…he had a type of woman he would end up with, single mom with 2 girls and i was the first victim i believe, then he moved onto another woman with 2 girls..but strangely she was married but her husband lived in the basement or some shit, i remember her calling me like 15 yrs ago saying she should have listened to me and believed her oldest was molested by Nels…anyway she asked me to go to this bar where he hung out and was dating the bartender (you guessed it… single mom 2 daughters) and show her the police report and talk to her…which of course i did…i also had words with him, he’d been telling all his “friends” what ingrates his “daughters” were that didn’t come to see him and never called…he was with my mom i was age 6 – 18, the abuse stopped at 15 when he got caught…
    so now he is with a grandmother that has a beautiful granddaughter, how i know this is his mom died and i went to where he stays with this woman to pick up my aunt who was staying there, and she asked me to talk to this new woman…which i did…seeing the pic on the wall of the 7-9 yr old girl with long brown hair…well…she says she had no idea but that her granddaughter never visits…
    that was 7 yrs ago…
    last summer i am at a street fair a few towns over with my daughter…and who do i see…i see Nels walking hand in hand with the girl who is now in her teens and she is leaning her head against his arm…i almost puked right on the spot…then the grandmother comes running up from getting food and stumbles out a “hello” i was left speechless…
    these single moms and grandma were willing to trade their girls and granddaughter for him…that’s a fact…this is why the recidivism rate seems so low..there are always women and men who allow this shit to be done to their babies…it’s disgusting and i lived it…i can’t wait for the day that i get the call he died…once he was walking across the road i was driving on and i thought…how easy to just hit him, he was jaywalking after all…i mean it would have been an accident … really…:0)

  • Athena

    There’s no evidence to suggest that chimos are any smarter than your average criminal, so I don’t think that they’re going to get any better about getting caught than your average criminal. But it’s true that there is a lot we’ll never hear about.

  • No great loss.

  • wastintime

    Hahaha! Bitch got what bitch deserves!

  • kimbev69

    I think they are pretty smart, he lived with my mom and younger sister for two yrs before i moved back with my mom at almost 7 and he knew to choose me not her, thats pretty smart in my opinion

  • brandi

    I had to sing this part solo for play in grade school…. it was torture.

  • Buffettgirl

    Sorry if I brought back painful memories – the news just made me want to sing and this is what came to mind. If it’s any consolation I had to be the kid in the front center row of the Christmas Pagent when my class sang “All I want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth” because I was one of five in the class missing our two front teeth… I hate that song! 😉

  • alphatroll

    I’d be OK with slipping the guy a pack of smokes or something.

  • brandi

    Painful…..understatement. butt anything’s better than my two front teeth

  • deadskinmask213

    Does saying your not for vigilante justice in the article remove you from liability if someone were to start being a vigilante after reading the posts here at the demon? I love the thought of vigilante justice problem is it doesn’t always pan out or go the way it’s supposed to.

  • I will mention that recidivism rates are affected by the willingness of future victims to disclose as mentioned by others. My boy scout leader perp continued to abuse many other boys, because none of us were willing to come forward and Just Tell.

    Studies of convicted perpetrators have shown that the serial perp will have offended 114 times, (anywhere from one child 114 times to 114 different children) before they are caught and convicted the first time.

    This statistic should be a major cause of concern for parents who put their children in organizations which rely heavily on background checks to prevent child molesters from volunteering. The BSA claims they are taking “pro-active” steps to protect the boys, but they are not doing anything about the perps who were registered prior to the background check policy. Not to mention that background checks will not catch the offenders who have never been caught. Most little league sports organizations are just now starting to implement policies to try and limit their liability. But again, they need to find better ways to weed out potential predators.

    We, as parents, need to empower our children to protect themselves and encourage them to “Be There Own Hero” and Just Tell, if something doesn’t feel right.

  • Jennifer Ray

    Mike Smith, you know why he was targeted- why would you imply you don’t? wish we could say it was because he’s a pedo. that’s not the reason though is it? has Jeremiah’s family been informed that NCCF was aware of this problem and still denied him PC?

  • James

    From what I heard, those that raped teens and adults are not targeted at all. Possibly, the only kind of rapist would be someone that raped their own family member (wife, mother etc.) as many, many prisoners love their family, especially their mothers or girlfriend/wife so much. However, this is very rare as well, and not as documented to occur too much. Even rapists have a code which is a bit ironic, but understandable. It is just known that child rapists (and child killers) and snitches are those that are targeted above others. Nothing is worse though than abusing a small child. I also say that to animals as well. They are also defenseless for the most part towards a human. Child and animal abusers can burn all I care.

  • Martin

    This is disgusting- It doesn’t matter what someone as done murder rape molestation. People in prison are there to serve their sentence to the world- not vigilante violence.

    Consider this-while it may be crazy to some lesser minded people shit happens;

    You get real drunk messed up watever you want to call it. You wake up in a cell not sure what has happened. You find out later that you were picked up while not in you’re right mind and accused of a crime. But you’re so messed up and easily influenced that you easily give a statement of confession. You didn’t do it. You never even remembered it. But thats all it took to get sent to prison…bad choices that lead to even worse things.

    My family is going through this. One member made a bad decision to get ripped on drugs and got picked up for questioning. The next that member is fighting against insane charges of child molestation from an Uncle who wants nothing but to destroy a life and get the conflicted members inheritance because they will be disowned and lose millions from an ailing grandfather. Using his 4 year old daugter and bribing her with disney world trips and a shetland pony among oter things to do it. Refuses to get her checked out if it was true claiming he as no insurance. What father does not take his daughter checked to see if she’s okay? Or get her counseling?

    But it doesn’t matter because this member of our family who has never done anything like this and has no parents and has a confession he doesn’t remember giving stacked upon him and will probably be found guilty and hurt or end up like this guy because of biased pricks like this….

    You know whats messed up. It could happen to anyone! ANYONE!!! You have a disgruntled family member? A pissed off ex with children? A spoiled 6 year old who goes to far because you didn’t take them to see barney? Don’t for a second think you are safe or that any person is giulty without truly reading the facts of their case and deciding for yourself. And dont give the bull of helping society with deaths. The mother and child left behind with no child support or father. The young teen who tried drugs once and was at the wrong place at the wrong time, the caring preschool teacher who angered the wrong family with a few harsh but true words of their kid. Went for a few beers and to have a great time. Woke up after being drunk and finding out they are fighting losing battles against a system that is set on biased law not justice. It could be you or you or you. And wouldn’t you want someone anyone to give you a fair sentence not death?

    End of soapbox…please be smart don’t be sheep.

  • Shade

    Well, given that your person was doing drugs, I double darn don’t give a shit what happens to him. Don’t break the fucking law, especially with mind-altering substances, and then you don’t commit, or allegedly commit, crimes, you don’t give confessions you don’t remember, maybe your judgment will be good enough that your conscience will smack the shit out of you the moment touching a kid occurs to you, and then your not stuck in some position that allows others, including family members, to take advantage of you. JFC what is wrong with the world that being all messed up on drugs is your fucking justification for things? smdh

  • Skye Belle Matilda Brand

    I’m really trying to think of this as a sad situation where a human being lost his life but I’m really struggling to consider thi piece of garbage as anything close to human.

  • Tommysgirl21165

    It shouldn’t matter if he was an actual pedophile. Fact remains he sexually assaulted a PRESCHOOLER!!
    Glad he was found dead he probably pissed someone off. I’m not saying it was right, but, to bad all people who are in jail don’t get beat to death same with the parents who beat their kids to death kill all of them.
    That might help with the over crowding of jails!!

    sorry to say this, but he got what he deserved, anyone that harms a child has no place on this earth.

    I’m getting really sick of this vigilante justice, we are going to be a nation of laws or not. As a child sexual abuse survivor ( at the hands of a women ) I hate pedophiles, but we are a nation of laws.

  • Cheyenne Taylor

    I’m Jeremiah Taylor’s daughter, i’m 17, and he was a good honorable man. I loved him. Yes, he did wrong; don’t all human beings? But my father was ripped away from me by this other inmate when i was only 13. I have gone through hell and back trying to come to terms to forgive this psychotic person who killed my father. My father was framed for molestation and he thought he was doing right by pleading guilty to his charges. Yes he did drugs but he wouldn’t ever hurt or molest a child or anyone for that matter. He only plead guilty because he thought he was protecting me and my little sister; but his pleading guilty made the bullying worse, everything worse. My father, my family doesnt deserve this. We dont want this on the news or media. Your making our lives hell. Oh and for your information, my family doesn’t think that you people do your job good enough (officers, guards, etc) to just give Taylor Baughn 15 years added on to his sentence. He should’ve gotten life in prison or the death sentence. And if it were up to my family we would have put Baughn in the death sentence. And for all of you assholes who think saying this shit below my comment is nice, your fucked up. Jeremiah Taylor was my dad! my dad! He was taken from me 4-5 seperate times. How would you guys like it if i killed one of your family members and laughed saying ‘oh i dont give a single fuck. oh well.’ Ya’ll deserve to burn in hell like Taylor Baughn (my dad’s murderer).
