Default Isola, MS woman w/ dementia, 91 raped, stabbed, beaten, and left in her own blood by the colored boy


Accused rapist, 15, faces $2 million bond in elderly Mississippi woman’s attack

Updated September 25 at 3:52 PM

ISOLA, Miss. (WLBT) - A 15-year-old is being held in Humphreys County on $2 million dollar bond in connection with the brutal rape of an elderly Isola resident with dementia.

The 91-year-old victim of the attack was found stabbed, beaten, and left in her own blood under an overturned entertainment center inside her Isola home. The suspect was 15-year-old Tydarius Wade.

In court on Thursday, an Investigator for the Attorney General’s office said authorities looked at Wade early on in the case based on some previous knowledge of him from the Isola Police Department.

Another Isola resident, Rodney King Taylor, said he knows the victim.

“That old lady, she don’t bother nobody, she’s friendly," said Taylor. "She’ll talk to anybody. Anybody walks by, she says, ‘Hey, how you doing? Have a good day, God bless you.’”

The caregiver that found the victim found a bloody knife under a couch in the victim’s home. DNA tests from the Mississippi State Crime Lab would uncover blood on it from both the victim and from Wade. A shirt taken from Wade had the victim’s blood DNA on it, investigators said.

Wade was arrested as soon as the DNA tests came in from the crime lab, police said.
