About Gertrude Baniszewski
  • The murder of Sylvia Likens was a child murder which occurred in Indianapolis, Indiana in October 1965.
  • Likens, a 16-year-old girl, was held captive and subjected to increasing levels of child abuse and torture, committed over a period of almost three months by her caregiver, Gertrude Baniszewski, many of Baniszewski's children, and several other neighborhood children, before ultimately succumbing to her injuries on October 26.
  • Baniszewski; her oldest daughter, Paula; her son, John; and two neighborhood youths, Coy Hubbard and Richard Hobbs, were all tried and convicted in May 1966 of neglecting, torturing, and murdering Likens, with counsels at the defendants' trial describing the case as the "most diabolical" ever to be presented before a court or jury and Likens having been subjected to acts of "degradation that you wouldn't commit on a dog" prior to her death.The torture and murder of Sylvia Likens is widely regarded by Indiana citizens as the worst crime ever committed in their state and has been described by a senior investigator in the Indianapolis Police Department as the "most sadistic" case he had ever investigated in the 35 years he served with the Indianapolis police.
