A NY man who was previously arrested for possession of child pornography was charged with abducting and murdering a school librarian and raping her 10-year-old daughter, The Associated Press reports.

Police say David J. Renz, 29, removed his ankle monitor, then drove to a mall near Syracuse, NY, where he abducted the woman and her daughter as they left a gymnastics class, around 9 p.m. Thursday.

Renz forced the woman and her daughter into their SUV, bound them both, fatally stabbed the woman and raped the girl.

Police say he then drove a short distance to a location where the girl was able to escape. A passing motorist spotted the girl and stopped. The motorist told 911 dispatch he saw a man running away from the scene.

Sheriff's deputies on the ground and in the air tracked Renz down and arrested him.

Renz was previously arrested in January and charged with the felony possession of child pornography consisting of 500 videos and 3000 images on one of 4 computers found in the bedroom of his North Syracuse apartment in June.

Renz was released from jail under the condition that he wear the ankle monitor, stay home at night, avoid the Internet, and stay away from schools and areas where there are children.

According to The Associated Press, Renz lost his job at a grocery store and moved in with his mother. He was unable to find work.

Federal probation officials are trying to determine why a monitoring company didn't alert police when Renz removed his ankle monitor. Renz is being held without bond on federal and state charges.

    Wow that is so sad. I agree they should have showed his face. He is such a loser.. That child's life is ruined.. He will be taken care of in jail... Trust, they don't take kindly to pedophiles.... Even criminals have standards.

    I agree, his face should be shown for the world to see!! :mad: What a depraved and disgusting animal!! My thoughts go out to that poor child who lost her mother and her innocence all at once :pray:

    Ridiculous. This man should have never been allowed out on an ankle bracelet. If he was locked up this would not have happened. 500 videos and 3000 images? My younger sister once had a teacher who was thrown up under the damn jail and is still there because someone LOOKED at child porn on a computer that belonged to him (even though they are not sure that he was the one who was looking).

    eff an ankle bracelet, lock his a es es up. This is getting ridiculous. The judge should lose his job and all responsible for releasing him. Examples need to be made. The court system has been playing around with these pedophiles long enough. I wanna see his face too . While his mama may not have raised him like this, im curious to know what she looks like and what kind of upbringing he had.

    That is heartbreaking. Sick punk. We must be careful when leaving and entering homes and businesses day or night. This story has put more fear in me. I wonder if he killed the mom in front of the child. So sad.


    Thanks for the weekend post. I saw this story on CNN and wondered if you were going to write a post on it. Thanks!

  • LSLH

    I just saw his face and he looks Asian and has thick glasses. He looks mentally retarded.

  • AKAtastrophy1908

    Ladies and gentlemen, meet the next piece of cell block meat. He is OVER in jail and that still won't be enough to pay for what he did to this CHILD and her mother. This is so random and senseless.

    The world is getting scarier and scarier. Gotta get armed...but not with an oozie.

    Authorities are trying to determine why Renz was placed in a holding cell with other inmates, considering the seriousness of his charges.


    Authories, just like anyone else with a brain, know EXACTLY why he was placed in a holding cell! Folks need to be held accountable for their actions and even criminals dont like rapists–especially when there is a child involved. He got the first of many azz whoopins coming to him…he better get ready and be prepared to get his booty took too! IJS :coffee:

    LSLH says: I just saw his face and he looks Asian and has thick glasses. He looks mentally retarded.


    i hope he doesn't play the retarded card after getting out of an ankle bracelet, fooling the sheriff's office, car-jacking, kidnapping, raping, and murdering. i'm sick of the retarded defense too.
