March 12, 2014 Seminole County Grand Jury Issues Multiple Charges In Rachel Fryer Case

            The Seminole County Grand Jury on Wednesday, March 12, indicted Rachel Fryer, 33, Sanford, on five separate counts for the death of her two-year-old daughter and for other events surrounding the child’s death. Fryer has been held in the Seminole County Jail since Feb. 11.


            The grand jury heard testimony from the St. Johns County Medical Examiner who performed the autopsy on the child, a Sanford Police Department investigator, and a Florida Department of Law Enforcement agent, said Assistant State Attorney Stacey Straub Salmons. Salmons presented the case to the jury.


The charges the jury returned included: first-degree felony murder, aggravated manslaughter, two counts of aggravated child abuse, and tampering with evidence.  They cover the events in the child’s life from the time of her reunification with her mother on Nov. 17, 2013, through her death on Feb. 6 and the disposal of her body several days later. 


Fryer remains held in the Seminole County jail without bond.
