Clarksville, TN – A baby girl was raped and strangled at a Clarksville residence on Tuesday morning, police say.

Authorities have arrested the 9-month-old baby’s father, Christopher Paul Conway, 22, on charges of Homicide and Aggravated Rape of a Child, Clarksville Online reported.

Clarksville Police spokesman Jim Knoll said that at 7:19 am on Tuesday, officers responded to a 911 medical call. The caller reported that CPR was being performed on a child.

When emergency personnel arrived, the infant was immediately transported to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 8 am, the Leaf-Chronicle said.

Homicide detectives learned that the baby had been sexually assaulted. She died after a cord was wrapped around her neck, strangling her.

Conway confessed to the rape and murder of his daughter during an interview with investigators, and was arrested at approximately 4:20 am on Wednesday.

Police said the investigation is ongoing.

According to Department of Children Services spokesman Rob Johnson, the victim’s twin sister was placed into foster care as a result of the girl’s murder, the Leaf-Chronicle reported.

Johnson said he does not believe the family has a history of prior contact with the Department of Children Services.

According to Conway’s Facebook page, he is a married Army combat medic and the father of twin girls.

He listed the U.S. Army as his employer on police records, the Leaf-Chronicle said.

Conway was booked into the Montgomery County Jail on charges of Homicide and Aggravated Rape of a Child.

His bond has been set at $100,000 for the count of rape.

Because Conway could face the death penalty for killing his daughter, the court denied bond on the count of homicide, the Leaf-Chronicle said.

No. 1-17

i want to know why he snapped. putting personal morels behind, i would want to know what was going on in his mind. but to unpopular belief a normal person can snap in an instent. i have Sean it happen. just take a soldier with hidden PTSD one minute all is well out walking and window shopping the next they are on a battle field and everyone around them is the enemy and there goal is to kill everyone and get away. but it is all in their head for in the real world they are still in front of the store .


He should be dead....


There are some cases that I believe the only way to receive true justice is to re-enact "Cruel & Unusual Punishment" carried out immediately after a single and swift trial by jury. This is such a case.


My mind cannot conceive of a punishment so despicable so as to merit the treachery perpetrated against this little child. God bless her. All I know is it should be slow, and painful, and public, and most certainly end in death!
