Her body showed signs that she had been violently raped.with an upside-down cross carved into her stomach and religious items placed in a circle around her partially naked body.
According to report, 17-year-old Jose E. Reyes had killed Corriann so that his younger friend could ‘sell his soul to the devil.’
Reyes who appeared in court on Monday admitted committing the horrific crime while he looked directly into the camera and smiled. He said they both sexually assaulted Corriann and when she tried to leave the vacant apartment, they grabbed her by the arms and pulled her back in again.
