Man Who Raped and Killed Daughter Blames Racism and Slavery for Heinous Crimes

Share

Jerry Bausby, 43, who was convicted of raping and murdering his eighteen-year-old daughter at a motel in 2016, blames America’s racism and legacy of slavery for turning him into the man he is today.

America’s historical race relations were apparently at fault-and not his actions.

Bausby was convicted of second-degree murder, sodomy, incest and sexual abuse, and will serve the rest of his life in prison.

His biological daughter, Daizsa Bausby, was found dead at the Four Acres Motel on Hickman Mills Drive, Kansas City, MO.

Bausby became prime suspect after DNA evidence was found at the scene.

According to KSHB:

Several people, including her sister, LaKendra Bausby, testified during Jerry’s sentencing. LaKendra told the judge that she and her sister had tough lives, according to a news release from the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office.

“She wanted to prove to the world that she was worthy of being loved …,” LaKendra said in court. “She didn’t deserve what Jerry did to her.

Daizsa was a star at her school, active in cheerleading and the performing arts, according to a news release from the school at the time of her death.

“She was an inspiration,” Southwest Principal Earl Williams in a May statement. “She was a mentor to all of our kids through the activities she was involved with and as they move forward, they will remember her spirit and wisdom.”

KMBC reports:

Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker asked the court to set maximum sentences for Jerry Bausby. She said doing so would “demonstrate that evil will be matched by justice.”

Jerry Bausby took the stand and talked for 45 minutes, mentioning the victim only once, saying, “Daisza was a star.” He blamed racism and what he viewed as slavery in modern America for forming him into what he was, according to the prosecutor’s office.
