Cleveland police have a man in custody in connection with the rape and murder of 14 year old Gloria Pointer in December 1984.

Gloria was on her way to school when she was beaten to death with a pipe in the back stairwell of an abandoned apartment building on East 105th Street.

“My niece had just babysat for us the night before. I asked her to just spend the night. If I had kept her all night, she would probably still be alive,” said Gloria’s uncle, Ray Pointer.

Pointer has lived with this hurt for 30 years. He said Gloria wanted to keep her perfect attendance record so he took her home. That was the last time he saw his niece alive.

“When she didn’t make it to school, the alarm went off because she had perfect attendance,” Ray Pointer said. “When my boss and I got to the scene of the crime, they were bringing the body out dripping with blood. They didn’t want to open it up for me, but I demanded. It was terrible.”
