“This is probably the most heinous crime I've seen in 22 years as a prosecutor”

A West Virginia sex offender strangled a Carter County woman, raped and beat her 10-year-old daughter to death and then burned their mobile home, killing a 3-year-old child in the blaze, Kentucky State Police said yesterday.

The bodies of Jennifer Ison, 31, and her daughters, Shannah, 10, and Marissa, 3, were found early May 9 in the ashes of their mobile home in Hitchins. Marissa died of smoke inhalation, investigators said.

Robert L. Drown Jr., 27, was served with arrest warrants Wednesday in a Barboursville, W.Va., jail where he was taken into custody a week ago for failing to register as a sex offender. Read more

Thank you for letting me know this, he used the be Jennifer and the girls neighbor until they moved to 60 then moved to Canoe Run.
I can't believe he would say something like that. He used to watch those girls play outside whether he remembers it or not...

WEll outraged, you are totally wrong. He does not deserve whatever could happen to him. 1.) its not even been proved that he committed the murders, 2.) when/if they have shown his guilt then I will be the first to say that he deserves prison time, yes even if it is life w/o parole (and Im not even including "truth in sentence" where he has to do 80% of it, but he should do the full life sentence. But he does NOT deserve to be beat.
well matt i think you are wrong he gets what he gets what he does deserve those two little girls DID NOT as you say deserve to be raped and murdered... he took their innocence before he took their lives so yea im sorry he does deserve to get his a$$ beat every time somebody needs to let off some steam and as long as the beater doesnt kill him i see no wrong in that he should have controlled himself and shown some restraint hell the younger child wasnt even dead when he lit the fire did she deserve to be burned alive after being raped and beaten i would hope you dont think so or your in the same boat as he is a sick minded man. wow cant believe anybody would take up for this sick man.

. Robert will die in jail cause that's all he will ever see again. The smallest child wasn't raped but she was hiding behind her mothers bedroom door so he never found her, I wish this post was never bought up cause the family still has a hard time over this. They also lost Jennifer's father about a yr ago. What happen to this family was the worst thing that even hit this region. So please out of respect let this post be buried. Thanks

When are they finally going to do something to stop these sick perverts from touching our kids. He already had a past record. I dont think they should be set free. Send them to Antartica or something.
Make sure they take his clothes and lather him up with seal blood and 'cuff his hands to his ankles or throw gas ion him in the public square and let a family member of the deceased torture him then set his satin soul on fire.
