The same type of cord used to tie-up the goats near Chris Collings camper, allegedly ended Rowan's Ford's life.
"One of them stated because she looked up at him," Sheriff Mick Epperly of Barry County said.
Chris Collings and David Spears allegedly brought her to Collings camper. The sheriff said inside the rundown, dirty camper, the two men raped the 9-year-old.
She reportedly pleaded with them to stop. Investigators believe the two men pulled her out of the camper after they raped her, pulled a cord out of a truck and then strangled her.
"I could not tell you what went through this man's mind at that time," Epperly said, "you know, drinking and drugs and what could go through anybody's mind to sexually abuse a 9-year-old innocent girl. That's just unhuman."
