A reader sent me this story the other day and I’ve been looking for more information on the case and the latest news since then. I would like to know how alleged rapist Obadiah Loyira came to be in Sioux Falls in the first place and where in Africa he is from, but of course the media never tells us that.
Why this conspiracy of silence about how immigrants charged with crimes got here—through which LEGAL program they entered the US? Or are they illegal aliens?
The only hint we have that he is a refugee is from the citizen comments on this news story which run along the lines of—“when are people going to realize lutheran social services is ruining this town.”
Lutheran Social Services is a federal refugee contractor resettling refugees to South Dakota, here. Do they know where he is?
Here is the latest story (I could find)—-a second arrest has been made—but still no Obadiah Loyira (although the authorities interviewed him earlier and let him go!):
Authorities arrested a second suspect in connection with the alleged rape of a 12-year-old girl and possesion of child pornography in Lincoln County.
A 16-year-old male from Council Bluffs, Iowa was arrested in Council Bluffs Friday on charges of first-degree rape and sexual contact with a child under 16, according to Lincoln County Sheriff Dennis Johnson.
A 20-year-old Sioux Falls man has already been charged, and police are still looking for a Harrisburg man, Obadiah Loyira, 19.
Detective Matt Kopecky said Loyira, who uses aliases of Jay or J.J., has ties to Sioux Falls and is thought to be in the Sioux Falls area.
Elizeo Kalimba, 20, was charged with first-degree rape and two counts of child pornography in his initial court appearance Tuesday. A $25,000 cash bond was set for Kalimba with conditions including house arrest — except for work and school — and that he has no contact with anyone under age 18, court documents say.
Loyira is wanted on the same charges. He is described as black, 6-foot and 180 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
On Saturday, a search warrant was served at Loyira’s home and Loyira admitted to having “sexual intercourse” with the victim and taking graphic pictures of her with his cellphone, according to court documents.
Johnson said a decision was made not to take Loyira into custody to help further the investigation. An arrest warrant was issued Tuesday, and Loyira was not found at his home, Johnson said.
Readers, if you have anything more on this story, please send it my way! I do want to get the whole story!
