An 80-year-old man found dead this week with “I touch little girls” scrawled on his chest died from blunt trauma to his head and torso.
The body of Robert Raynor was found in the hallway of his Staten Island apartment building early Monday morning.
In addition to the message on his chest, two other messages were written on his body: “I take dolls in my room for girls age 1-5” on his stomach and “I touch” on his right foot, as CrimeOnline previously reported.
Police have not identified a suspect, the Post said.
Raynor’s upstairs neighbor, 40-year-old Isaac Willliams, found the body just after 9:30 a.m. Monday, police said. Williams told the Post that he’d heard a ruckus downstairs several hours earlier.
“It was so loud, I could hear it over the air conditioner,” he said. “I said, ‘What the hell are they doing down there?’ It was loud banging, like ‘boom, boom, boom.’ Like people were wrestling or someone was throwing somebody around.”
The noise eventually stopped and he fell back asleep. When he went downstairs later in the morning, he saw the body, wearing only pants, which were pulled down below his waist.
Raynor has 24 arrests on his record, the paper said, but none appear related to pedophilia — although several are sealed — and his name is not on the state’s registry of known sex offenders.
The Post also spoke with Raynor’s estranged son, 53-year-old Thayer Raynor, who said the circumstances of his father’s death were “shocking and upsetting” although he had “no real relationship” with him.
Thayer Raynor and Williams told the Post that Robert Raynor lived with three female relatives, one in her 30s and two children, but their relationship was unclear.
