According to probable cause documents obtained by FOX59, the sexual abuse survivor told her dad that Killian touched her inappropriately. A CPS caseworker spoke with the survivor, and she revealed Killian had been touching her inappropriately for months.
She said the sexual encounters started in March 2017. Killian touched her in and forced her to have sex with him. She says she told him no but he would swear at her and call her vulgar names. She told the caseworker she felt very scared and uncomfortable around him.
Court documents say police found out the survivor was 7 and a half months pregnant in December 2017.
Investigators collected a DNA swab from Killian after the baby was born. They sent the DNA samples to an Indiana State Police lab for testing, and it was determined there is a 99.9999% probability Killian is the father.
