On October 7, 2017, 22-year-old Kelsie Blankenship burst out of her Conneaut, Ohio apartment, carrying the limp body of her almost-13-month-old daughter, Sereniti. When the police arrived, Kelsie was screaming, “Help my baby!” It was too late, however, and Sereniti was pronounced dead at the hospital. After both Kelsie and her live-in boyfriend, Joshua Gurto, were questioned, Joshua went on the run, resulting in a 3-week manhunt that culminated with his capture in Franklin Park, Pennsylvania. He was charged with the rape and murder of his girlfriend’s baby girl. A full year later, Kelsie Blankenship was apparently blindsided when she, too, was arrested in connection with her daughter’s death.
This is the horrific story of Sereniti Sutley.
