Man charged with murder, sodomy in 2018 death of 3-year-old in Lexington

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A man charged with murder and first-degree sodomy is now being held in the Fayette County Detention Center in connection with the death of a 3-year-old girl.

Police said 33-year-old Andrew Charles Buster Jr. sexually assaulted Lillyann Grace Reck on Dec. 10, 2018. Police were called an apartment on Cross Keys Road when the toddler was unconscious. She later died at the hospital on Dec. 14, 2018, officials said.

Police said Buster was a family acquaintance who was watching Reck while her mother was at work. The case recently was determined to be a homicide by the medical examiner’s office. Police said new DNA evidence led to Buster’s arrest.

When first reporting on the incident back in 2018, LEX 18’s Leigh Searcy unknowingly spoke to Buster when knocking on apartment doors.

He told Searcy that he was the one who had been watching the girl. When Searcy asked what happened, Buster replied “Yea I know what happened to her but I can’t talk. I can’t talk about it.”

Police confirmed that was in fact Buster.

3-year-old ‘hero’ dies in Lexington. Investigation underway.
December 17, 2018 11:05 AM

The death of a 3-year-old girl is being investigated by Lexington police who said she was found unresponsive in an apartment.

Lillyann Grace Reck
was found at 1040 Cross Keys Road on Dec. 10, according to police and the Fayette County coroner.

CPR was immediately performed on the child, who was then taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital, Lexington police spokesman Donnell Gordon said.

An autopsy was expected to help determine the cause of Lillyann’s death, the coroner’s office said.

“At this point, we’re just investigating every angle we can,” Gordon said.


In a phone interview, Reck claimed his daughter was left with a neighbor of Lillyann’s mother when the mother and her husband left for work.

Reck said that Lillyann was an organ donor. She was in the hospital for four days.

“She gave the ultimate sacrifice to save someone else,” he said.

She died Friday night at 9:01 p.m., according to the coroner’s office, which released the information Monday.
