ELIZABETH NEIMEIC - 2 yo (2010) - Erie PA

Post by TomTerrific0420 on Tue Aug 03, 2010 2:47 am

Police today arrested a 22-year-old man in the slaying of a 2-year-old girl who was snatched
from her bedroom in her family's Pennsylvania home.

Aaron Noyer was charged with criminal homicide, aggravated assault,
aggravated indecent assault, kidnapping, burglary and abuse of a corpse
in the death of Elizabeth Neimeic of Erie, Pa.




Elizabeth Neimeic

Crime scene investigators found Noyer's finger- and palm prints inside the Neimeics' home, authorities
said. When Noyer was brought in for police questioning Sunday, he
allegedly told police he had climbed through the girl's bedroom window to burglarize the home.

During the burglary, Noyer allegedly abducted Elizabeth and took her to a nearby area.
There, next to some railroad tracks, he removed her clothing and sexually assaulted and
strangled her, authorities said. Afterward, Noyer threw the child to the
ground at least twice, police said.

Noyer led investigators to the child's remains early this morning, police said.
An autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death.

Noyer appeared before a judge this morning and was ordered held without bond
at the Erie County Prison. A preliminary hearing was scheduled for Aug. 12.

Meanwhile, Elizabeth's family is trying to raise funds for
her burial. Donations to the Elizabeth Karen Neimeic Funeral Fund are
being accepted at any PNC bank location in Erie or via postal mail. The
address is PNC Bank, 901 State St., Erie, PA 16501.

Fingerprints left around the bedroom window of a west side home led Erie police
to a suspect in a 2-year-old girl's abduction and death.
Police said Aaron Lee Noyer confessed to kidnapping, sexually
assaulting and killing Elizabeth Neimeic early Sunday morning after
officers brought him in for questioning in the case.



Noyer told investigators that he encountered Neimeic in her bedroom at
1342 W. 11th St. after he had climbed through a window to commit a
burglary. Noyer said he took the girl from her home, assaulted her and
then strangled her, leaving her body near the CSX railroad tracks south
of West 12th Street, according to the affidavit of probable cause that
was filed with the charges this morning.
Noyer became a suspect when fingerprints and palm prints found around
the girl's bedroom window matched his prints, police said.
Noyer was arraigned this morning before District Judge Tom Carney on
charges of criminal homicide/murder, aggravated assault, aggravated
indecent assault, kidnapping, burglary and abuse of a corpse.
Noyer was placed in the Erie County Prison without bond.
His preliminary hearing was tentatively scheduled for Aug. 12.

Aaron Lee Noyer used MySpace and Facebook as an alibi when first
questioned about why his fingerprints were in the bedroom of a missing
2-year-old, police said.


Sitting in an interview room about 6:05 p.m. Sunday, he told
investigators he spent all Saturday night and Sunday morning surfing the
Internet at a friend's home, according to a recently filed search warrant.

Noyer, 22, abandoned that story after the owner of the computer told
police that while Noyer often used his computers, Noyer was not in his
home the night someone kidnapped and killed Elizabeth Neimeic.

Investigators still want to look at two computers Noyer was known to
have used at a friend's home on West 23rd Street.

One thread of the ongoing investigation into the kidnapping, sexual
assault and killing of Elizabeth led state police Monday to two
computers -- a Dell desktop computer and Compac tower -- known to have
been used by Noyer.

Police want to know whether Noyer had viewed child pornography in the
past, according to the warrant filed with Erie 3rd Ward District Judge
Tom Carney. Trooper James Brown said in the warrant he was also looking
for any evidence pertaining to the homicide.

The owner of the computers, Vernon Lilly, voluntarily
turned over the equipment after he was interviewed by police.

Elizabeth Neimeic's family discovered the 2-year-old girl missing from
their first-floor apartment on the city's west side at about 11 a.m. Sunday.

By then, according to investigators, the 2-year-old had been kidnapped,
stripped, sexually assaulted, strangled and dumped in weeds next to
railroad tracks less than a mile from her home.

The man police believe to be Neimeic's attacker -- 22-year-old Aaron
Lee Noyer -- was arraigned Monday morning before District Judge Tom
Carney on charges of criminal homicide, aggravated assault, aggravated
indecent assault, kidnapping, burglary and abuse of a corpse. He was
placed in the Erie County Prison without bond, and is tentatively
scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on Aug. 12.

Police said they identified Noyer as a possible suspect from
fingerprints and palm prints found around the little girl's bedroom
window at 1342 W. 11th St.

When investigators later questioned Noyer about the girl's whereabouts,
he confessed to abducting, assaulting and killing her, and he took
police to her body, according to the affidavit of probable cause filed with the charges.

The team of investigators who worked on the case, including the Erie
Bureau of Police, the Pennsylvania State Police and the FBI, said the
crime appeared to be a random act that started as a burglary at Elizabeth's home.

Erie Police Chief Steve Franklin said Monday morning that investigators
believe Noyer had gone to the tan-sided, two-story duplex to steal
items, and he took the girl after climbing into her bedroom through a
window and rummaging through dresser drawers in search of valuables.

No items were reported taken, police said.

But Franklin said Monday afternoon that investigators are still chasing
down leads in order to confirm that the girl's abduction and death
resulted from a "random burglary."

"We're not entirely convinced of this yet," Franklin said.
"We're kind of reserving our decision until we get all the facts."

Franklin said it is a "quantum leap" to advance from apartment burglar
to sex offender and killer, and "part of what we're having trouble with
is, why this guy would make that leap."

Noyer said nothing as he sat before Carney, shaking slightly, during
his arraignment inside the Erie police station on Monday morning.

No one was at Noyer's home in the 600 block of West Third Street on
Monday except Erie police investigators who searched the interior for evidence.

A mile and a half away from Noyer's home, neighbors of Elizabeth said
they couldn't believe such a crime could happen in their neighborhood.

Most of the houses on their block, which sit on the south side of the
street across from a large factory building that houses Flagship Oil
Co., are owner-occupied, and several of those owners have dogs, one neighbor said.

Although there had been some stories about burglaries farther down the
street, no crimes had been reported at houses in the middle of the
block, where Elizabeth's family lives, said the man, who did not give his name.

"It's pretty quiet, to me, in a way," he said.

Another neighbor, who also declined to identify herself, said that
while burglaries in the neighborhood aren't common, she once had someone
break into her home while she and others were inside.

The woman spoke after dropping off a small vase filled with flowers on
the front porch of 1342 W. 11th St., next to a stuffed duck dressed in Pittsburgh Steelers garb.
Large, colorful play balls sat in the driveway on the east side of the duplex, while a trampoline sat in the back yard.
"I live too close," the woman said.

Elizabeth's family could not be reached for comment.

Following a six-hour autopsy that concluded shortly before 10 p.m.
Monday, Erie County Coroner Lyell Cook ruled the death a homicide,
caused by blunt force trauma to the head.
Cook said he was not yet ready to discuss other details of the assault.
"We need to have a lot more results before we can make
any more statements about what happened," he said.

Franklin said investigators worked quickly to try to find Elizabeth
after officers were first sent to her home at 11:53 a.m. Sunday on a
report of the missing child.
Elizabeth's mother, Kassie Black, told officers that Elizabeth was put
to bed at 10:30 p.m. on Saturday night, and that she was not in her room
at about 11 a.m. on Sunday.
Investigators determined "by evidence at the scene"
that Elizabeth had been possibly abducted, Franklin said.
That evidence led police to Noyer, who was found at his home
and who agreed to speak with police, Franklin said.

Based on the information that Noyer gave them, investigators believe
the abduction occurred at about 1 a.m. Sunday, when other members of
Elizabeth's family were asleep, Franklin said.

Noyer told police that after leaving the house, he undressed the girl,
sexually assaulted her and strangled her. He said he then threw
Elizabeth's unclothed body down twice, leaving her "exposed to the
elements," according to the affidavit filed with the charges.

Noyer later led police to her body, which was in some weeds adjacent to
railroad tracks between Greengarden Road and Raspberry Street, south of West 12th Street.

Noyer's arrest Sunday came a little more than a year after he completed
serving a nine-to-23-month sentence for simple assault in the stabbing
of his brother Keith Noyer, in June 2008. Aaron Noyer pleaded guilty in October 2008.
Aaron Noyer was initially charged with aggravated assault and
possessing an instrument of a crime in the incident, which police said
happened in the area of East 13th and Holland streets.
Police accused Noyer of stabbing his brother in the left hip and left
arm with a folding knife after becoming upset with his brother over an
Access card, according to the affidavit of probable cause filed with the charges.
The aggravated-assault charge was changed to simple assault and the
weapons possession charge was withdrawn under an agreement that led to
Noyer's guilty plea, according to court documents.

Anger at the defendant and a sadness for the loss of Elizabeth seemed
to compete Monday evening as the makeshift memorial on the little girl's
front porch continued to grow.

There was a message of consolation, written in marker on a smooth oval rock.

And there were bouquets of flowers she would never sniff, and stuffed
animals -- bunnies and bears -- that she would never hold close.
And there were people stopping by who did not know her, but felt
wounded by her loss and troubled by the thought of what she endured.
Fifty-six-year-old John Poole, who lives a few blocks away, knelt down on the porch and prayed for a minute.
Poole said he couldn't help but think of his own 3-year-old
granddaughter and vowed to be more patient, swore to spend more time with her.
A woman who asked that her name not be used remembered that Elizabeth
left behind a brother. The woman had brought a couple of radio-controlled cars for him.
The woman's boyfriend, Antwion Ebbore, left on the porch a card and a pink foil balloon that said "Princess."
The act seemed tender, but Ebbore, who has a 12-year-old daughter, could scarcely contain his anger.
"The ultimate evil is Satan, and he couldn't do anything worse than this," he said. "There is no sense to be made of it."

Poster's Note: Ya know, I thought it was weird that a burglar would all of a sudden turn into a kidnapper-molester-murderer. It seems the connection exists between mother and suspect.

Both Kathleen "Kassie" Black and the man accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter deny knowing each other.
But Erie police plan to reinterview Black this week about any possible
connection to Aaron Noyer, in relation to their investigation into Elizabeth Neimeic's death.




Erie Police Chief Steve Franklin said Monday that widespread rumors "on
the street" and on the Internet -- claiming that there is some link
between Black and Noyer -- make it necessary for police to interview
Black again, most likely in the next few days. Franklin also said Monday
that police now theorize that Elizabeth's death "was not a random act."

Noyer, 22, is charged with strangling, sexually assaulting and killing
the toddler. Authorities initially said the crime appeared to be a
random act that started as a burglary at Elizabeth's home.

The child's body was found Aug. 2, one day after she was reported
missing from her West 11th Street home. Police claim Noyer took
Elizabeth from the house after climbing through her bedroom window.

Elizabeth was buried Friday.

"Some of what we're hearing is that the offender was known to the
mother, and that the mother is known to the offender," Franklin said.

"There's a lot of stuff out there on the Internet and on the street
about this," said Franklin, who added that a plethora of rumors have
been relayed by various sources to the case's lead investigators,
Detectives Jim Spagel and Jon Peters, as well as other officers.

"The problem is, Who do you believe?" Franklin continued. "But we can't
discard anything, and that's why she will be talked to again."

Franklin stressed that police are not casting suspicion upon Black, 28,
in relation to her daughter's death. Franklin also said that Black and
her family have been cooperative throughout the homicide probe.

Black gave statements to both patrol officers and detectives after
Elizabeth was reported missing but before Elizabeth's body was found, Franklin said.

But even though both Black and Noyer have denied knowing each other to
police, Franklin said, Spagel and Peters plan to ask Black again about
whether she or anyone she knows has a connection to Noyer.

"I think that will probably be a point-blank question to her," Franklin said.
"We're hearing that you know him. Do you know him? Has he ever been in the house before?"

When investigators questioned Noyer about the girl's whereabouts -- he
was identified as a possible suspect from fingerprints and palm prints
found around the little girl's bedroom window at 1342 W. 11th St. --
police claim that Noyer confessed to abducting, assaulting and killing Elizabeth.

Noyer also took police to the child's body, which had been dumped in
weeds next to railroad tracks less than a mile from her home, police
said in the affidavit of probable cause filed with Noyer's arrest warrant.

Following an autopsy, Erie County Coroner Lyell Cook ruled Elizabeth's
death a homicide, caused by blunt force trauma to the head.

Authorities who worked the case, including Erie police, the
Pennsylvania State Police and the FBI, initially investigated the crime as a random act.

But Franklin said police now believe that "something drew (Noyer) to
that house. We don't believe this was a random act because of other
circumstances that I don't want to get into right now."

Those circumstances, Franklin said, include evidence collected by police
both before and after Noyer's arrest and confession.

"That's the direction we're heading in," Franklin said. "Some of this
is based on what we've been finding out. ... Some is based on evidence that we saw right away."

Erie police Lt. Kenneth Merchant stepped off the railroad tracks and
down the gravel slope toward the weeds where Aaron Noyer said they would
find the missing 2-year-old.
Behind him in the dark, he heard his police captain voice the discovery
that ended the daylong search for Elizabeth "Bitty" Neimeic.
"Oh, no," Capt. Frank Kwitowski said.
Merchant said he turned. There, illuminated by a flashlight beam, lay
Elizabeth, facedown, her body stripped of her diaper and her purple and
green Tinker Bell pajamas.
"There was an obvious injury to her neck where I could see blood," Merchant said.
Witnesses in Erie County Court on Thursday traced the investigation
that began with the Aug. 1 discovery of Elizabeth's disappearance from
her 1342 W. 11th St. home to Noyer's eventual -- at times, police said,
laughing -- confession to the crime.
Based on their testimony, charges against Noyer, 22, were bound over
for trial. The charges include criminal homicide, aggravated assault,
aggravated indecent assault, kidnapping, burglary and abuse of a corpse
He is being held in the Erie County Prison without bond.
Noyer's lawyers, Assistant Public Defenders Nicole Sloane and Michael
DeJohn, said the hearing left them with many questions, particularly
about their client's mental state at the time of his confession. One
past evaluation placed Noyer's IQ at 57, Sloane said.
District Attorney Jack Daneri said afterward that only some
of the state's evidence against Noyer was presented.
He said he had not yet decided whether to seek the death penalty, but
noted that aggravating factors required in Pennsylvania to seek the
punishment -- such as torture or killing of someone under 12 or while in
the act of another felony -- were present in the case.
Family members on both sides of the case crowded the benches in the courtroom.
Elizabeth's family wore T-shirts painted with tributes to her.
Her mother, Kathleen "Kassie" Black, testified clearly on the stand but
broke down as she listened to other testimony in the case. As a
detective recounted Noyer's admission that he had inserted his fingers
into the child's genitals, she left the room.
In the hallway, she could be heard repeating "Sick, sick, sick, sick."
Black testified that she returned home from work about 10:30 p.m. on
July 31 and soon went to bed. She said her husband, Joe Neimeic, put
Elizabeth to bed in Elizabeth's room, which was across the hall from Joe
Neimeic's and Black's room.
She said she heard nothing unusual at night and woke at 11 a.m. the
next morning, Aug. 1, when a friend knocked on the front door. She said
she told her 4-year-old son, Joe "Joey" Neimeic, to "let" his sister out
of her room. The doorknob was broken, and Elizabeth could not open it
from inside the bedroom, she said.
"He came out and told me Sissy was gone," Black said.
Black said she found Elizabeth's soiled diaper on the bedroom floor,
which she said was normal. The child was potty training and frequently
tore off her diapers, she said.
But, she said, one bedroom window that had been left with the top sash
open was now open from the bottom. The screen was also up, and her
daughter and some of her clothing were gone, she said.
Under cross-examination, Black said she did not know Noyer and
had not been receiving threats from anyone.
Detective Jason Triana said he quickly located finger and palm prints
on the open window that were traced to Noyer through a nationwide
fingerprint database.
Noyer, located at his brother's house on West Third Street in the
afternoon on Aug. 1, at first denied any involvement, Detective Sgt. Jim
Spagel said. Noyer told police he had been at another location at the
time of the crime. When that alibi did not pan out, Spagel said, he and
his partner, Jon Peters, arrested Noyer.
As they walked him down a stairwell to the booking counter,
Noyer started to giggle and confess, Spagel said.
Noyer told them three others were involved and called the crime a
"nothing but a tic-tac-toe game." Noyer claimed Elizabeth had two days
to live and that by handcuffing him, they had doomed her.
"He had a big smile on his face," Spagel said.
Investigators decided to send Merchant to talk with Noyer
to see if he would reveal the child's location.
Merchant said Noyer first claimed three others had paid him to take
Elizabeth and hand her out the window. He said he drove to the railroad
tracks with them, where the other three abused her.
Eventually, Noyer said he acted alone and that he had walked with the
child from her home, to the place where he killed her by squeezing her
neck and dashing her twice to the ground, Merchant said.
"He told me, 'She's gone.' And then he laughed," Merchant said.
"I asked him where she was," he said. "He told me she was in heaven."
Noyer finally agreed to take police to the child's body as long as there
were no cameras or other people there, Merchant said.
Merchant said that at about 3 a.m. Aug. 2, he and FBI Special Agent
Gerry Clark, who was assisting the investigation, traveled in a car with
Noyer as Noyer pointed out the route he had taken from Elizabeth's
home. Throughout the ride, he referred to himself and her and no others, Merchant said.
When they returned to the police station, Merchant addressed Noyer.
"You were alone, weren't you?" he asked.
"He nodded, 'yes,'" Merchant said.

Erie man accused of raping, killing toddler charged with raping woman in July

An Erie man facing the possible death penalty on charges of kidnapping, raping and killing a 2-year-old girl in August has been charged with raping a woman in downtown Erie in July.

Aaron Noyer, 22, awaits arraignment before Erie 3rd Ward District Judge Tom Carney this afternoon on rape, sexual assault, aggravated assault and unlawful restraint charges in a July 16 attack on a woman in the 700 block of State Street, Erie Police Chief Steve Franklin said.

The woman, whose age was not available, told police she suspected Noyer was her attacker after she saw Noyer on television following his arrest in early August on charges in the Aug. 2 death of Elizabeth Neimeic, Franklin said.

Police obtained a DNA sample from Noyer, and compared it to DNA evidence taken from the woman after the rape. The samples connected Noyer to the rape, Franklin said.

Preliminary hearing for man accused of killing Elizabeth Neimeic postponed
The preliminary hearing scheduled this morning for the man accused of killing 2-year-old Elizabeth Neimeic has been postponed.

Aaron L. Noyer, 22, was supposed to appear at 9 a.m. before Erie 3rd Ward District Judge Tom Carney in Erie County Central Court. That hearing has been postponed until Aug. 26 at the request of the prosecution.

Noyer faces charges of criminal homicide, aggravated assault, aggravated indecent assault, kidnapping, burglary and abuse of a corpse. He is being held in the Erie County Prison without bond.

Erie police said he climbed into Elizabeth's bedroom window at 1342 West 11th St., removed her from her home, sexually assaulted and killed her. Her body was dumped in the weeds along some railroad tracks less than a mile from her home, police said.

She was found on Aug. 2, one day after she had been reported missing.

Judge Rules No Death Penalty for Aaron Noyer
February 22, 2011, 10:29 am

Erie County Judge Ernie DiSantis ruled today, Aaron Noyer is not mentally fit for death penalty, if he's convicted with murder. Noyer is accused of kidnapping and killing an Erie toddler last summer. Investigators charged Noyer for the August kidnapping and murder of 2-year-old Elizabeth Neimeic.
At a February 11th hearing, Noyer's IQ and mental health were the focus, as the defense tried to convince the Judge that the death penalty could not be an option for the jury.
Noyer tested with an IQ of 46 and 50. That's far below 70, that is usually considered developmentally disabled.
So, Noyer's defense attorney argued that he is mentally retarded.
The defense also wanted his confession to police - suppressed. But Judge DiSantis said his statements will be allowed during trial.

ERIE, Pa. -- A Pennsylvania man pleaded guilty today to the slaying of a 2-year-old girl who was snatched from her bedroom in her family's home last year.

Aaron Noyer, 22, was sentenced to life in prison today for the second-degree murder of Elizabeth Neimeic of Erie, Pa. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors agreed to drop additional charges against Noyer, including aggravated indecent assault, kidnapping and abuse of a corpse.

Elizabeth Neimeic, 2, was abducted from her home, sexually assaulted and strangled.
"We are pleased he is not going to see daylight again," Erie County District Attorney Jack Daneri told AOL News. "The death penalty was not an option for us, so the next best thing was that this individual be incarcerated for the rest of his life without the chance of seeing freedom again and putting him among us again."

Family members reported Elizabeth missing on the morning of Aug. 1 when they discovered she was not in her bed. According to her parents, they had last seen her about 10 the night before when they tucked her in.

Crime scene investigators found Noyer's finger- and palm prints inside the Neimeics' home, authorities said. When Noyer was brought in for questioning, he allegedly told police he had climbed through the girl's bedroom window to burglarize the home.

During the burglary, Noyer abducted Elizabeth and took her to a nearby area. There, next to a pair of railroad tracks, he removed her clothing and sexually assaulted and strangled her, authorities said. Afterward, Noyer threw the child to the ground at least twice, police said.

Noyer led investigators to the child's remains on Aug. 2, police said.

Daneri had indicated early on that he was going to seek the death penalty for Elizabeth's murder; however a Common Pleas judge recently ruled that Noyer was exempt from execution because his IQ is less than 70.

"The judge found that the defendant met the criteria for mental retardation and could not be put to death," Daneri said. "So, we made an offer to the defendant that he could plead guilty."

According to Daneri, the terms of the plea deal ensure that Noyer will never be granted his freedom.

"He also waived all his appellate rights to challenge the sentence, to challenge any pretrial rulings or to challenge the effectiveness of his attorneys," he said. "All those rights they would have on appeal he waived as part of his agreement."

In addition to his plea in Elizabeth's slaying, Noyer also pleaded guilty to raping an adult woman two days before he murdered the little girl.

"About four months ago we matched the DNA taken from the woman victim, who was not murdered, and matched it to him," Daneri said. "We charged him and he pleaded guilty to that crime today."

Noyer has not been sentenced on the rape charge yet. According to the district attorney, he has to undergo a sexual violent predator assessment before that can happen. The assessment must be given in the next 90 days, so sentencing has been scheduled for July 25.

This case has weighed heavily on my mind since it happened last August. She was such a beautiful baby and she probably didn't have much in terms of material things, but she was a bundle of joy to all who knew her and had an infectious giggle.

I do not concur with the assessment of the "experts" in this case. Two experts from the defense found that Noyer had a limited IQ and two of the prosecutor's experts also found a low IQ; however, two or three of these experts caught Noyer faking his intellectual abilities and one of the prosecution's experts said that the low IQ did not disqualify Noyer. He said (after reviewing Noyer's interviews with the police) that Noyer was "thinking on his feet" and understanding the detective's questions and processing the questions and answering in such a manner as to deflect from himself. He was essentially stating that Noyer had a cunning intellect that would not be measured by conventional IQ tests.

Noyer tested in the 45 - 57 IQ range and there is just no way that is possible. What is more likely is that Noyer, who has had a life time of milking the system, has learned to get away with what he wants. As one commenter on another site said, he now has three hots and a cot, cable TV, and no worries for the rest of his life.

When will the justice system ever be for the people? When will it become the place for victims to find solace?

At the rate society is going, we will end up with anarchy as more and more people are driven to find justice through whatever means they can, be they legal or not. If Elizabeth had been my child, then I am positive that I would gladly spend the rest of my days in prison if I could remove the creature that stole her from me.

Sorry if this is unacceptable. If it is, then you can delete my remarks. I am just so tired of seeing so many children die at the hands of monsters.
And for those who survive abuse, what awaits them? It just seems like no one is willing to address the madness that is our legal/justice system.

I have had many posts deleted in this section, never any in the main blog however.

I do not think you need to worry about having your posts deleted.

This man is an evil monster. Regardless of the actual number of his IQ, he is intelligent enough to know the evil perpetrated on this precious child was wrong. Evil. Despicable. Offensive, in the eyes of God and man.

It just doesn't seem right that this SOB will spend an uneventful life in prison. How do we know he will not eventually be paroled as we have woefully seen recently from a man who vows to murder the man who murdered his son 30 years ago.

30 years may seem like enough for some. However, it is not for the victims of these evil predators. We live with the results of their evil misdeeds.

I hope this monster is raped and abused daily, gang raped daily and be allowed to experience the horror of what his victims lived (and died) through.

Even if this evil POS has a low IQ, that does not explain, does not excuse his evil deeds. May he burn in hell.
