Who am I?

Yesterday's Answer: John List

On Oct. 26, 1965, Indianapolis police were called to a rundown house on East New York Street where they found the body of 16-year-old on a bare mattress in an upstairs bedroom. Only one adult resident of the house, she told investigators she had been caring for the 16yr old while her parents were out of town -- and that the teenager had been attacked by a gang of boys.
But a coroner's examination would show that she had been systematically beaten and malnourished for weeks. Her body was covered with sores, burns and bruises. She had been branded, and the words "I am a prostitute" were etched on her stomach.
Although her injuries were horrific, the most shocking fact about the case was that the torture had gone on so long and had involved so many neighborhood children, who had joined in on the "punishing" of her. Neighbors had heard strange noises and visitors to the home had seen at least some of her injuries. Who am I and Who was my killer?
