*Pure cowardice is what many might call the act accused rapist Robert Semen, Jr. chose to carry out.
Just a day before a jury was to be selected in his triple murder case; where he is accused of raping 10-year-old Corinne Gump, then setting the home of her grandparents on fire, killing all three persons, he decides to jump off a courtroom balcony to his death.
It’s hard to feel anything. Even Corinne’s family, on top of mourning their loved ones, don’t know what they should be feeling.
According to the Associated Press, Lisa Cappitti, Gump’s stepmother, told the Youngstown Vindicator that the family doesn’t “know how to feel” as a result of Seman Jr.’s death.
“It’s sad,” she said. “There’s no justice at all.”
Everyone in court that day seemed shocked at Semen’s act saying he was actually, seemingly, rather upbeat about his pending trial.
Gimme a minute, as I will you. I mean, are you also wondering what ‘upbeat’ looks like when a trial that will certainly send you to jail is about to take place?
This is what is being reported.
Semen reportedly set fire to the home of William, 63, and Judith Smith, 61, in March 2015, the day his rape trial was set to begin.
Upon hearing of Semen’s death, one neighbor of the family knew exactly how to feel and didn’t hold back in letting the media know.
“I hollered, Hallelujah!’ ” Jean McCammond told the Youngstown Vindicator. “Lucifer is digesting the weirdest, meanest soul that was ever on earth.”
Here is actual video of Semen jumping over rail/banister to his death:
Thank goodness for unbridled honesty.
