Search continues for man accused of raping, killing baby

Man wanted for raping, murdering 13-month-old in Ohio spotted in Pa.

Joshua Gurto was busted in the Pittsburgh area at approximately 1:30 a.m. and taken to the Allegheny County Jail.

On Oct. 7, police responded to a call about an unresponsive child at an apartment in Conneaut, northeast of Cleveland. She had limit compel wounds to her head and body, and kicked the bucket at a doctor's facility.

Aggravated murder and rape charges were filed against the 37-year-old Gurto earlier this month. Detectives working the case said Gurto was spotted at a Sheetz in Franklin Park.

Gurto was not arrested on the day Sutley died because police could not gather enough evidence during questioning to detain him.

The suspect had maps of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and was in control of a blade when he was captured, specialists said Friday.

A $5,000 reward had been offered for information leading to Gurto's capture.

It's unclear how Gurto knew the toddler, who suffered blunt force trauma to the head and lower body on October 7, according to Pete Elliott, U.S. Marshal for the Northern District of Ohio.

Adding, 'She was a precious girl.

Blankenship's cousin said no one in their family expected that Gurto could do such a thing.

'I went to high school with him, ' Lee stated. 'This could have happened to anyone...your own niece, sister or granddaughter...he had always been so good with Sereniti.

Part of her obituary reads: 'Sereniti was a loveable little girl who brought a smile to your face.

It wasn't clear if the wanted man had a prior record of sexual assault.

Gurto was first spotted on surveillance video at a store on Route 20 in Girard. Spread the word about Joshua Dale Gurto!
