In response to Horror: Woman Sexually Assaulted, Beaten, And Set on Fire In Wichita Park:

With very little to go on, police in Wichita, Kansas have managed to track down and arrest a suspect in the horrific case of the woman who was beaten, sexually assaulted and set on fire at a park near Wichita State University, last week.

The 26-year-old suspect, Cornell McNeal, was found through evidence obtained by forensic nurses at a Wichita hospital according to Interim Police Chief Nelson Mosley.
The man was booked Wednesday on suspicion of rape and attempted first-degree murder in the attack Friday night at Fairmount Park.
Investigators believe the suspect and the victim had a random encounter and she was assaulted a short time afterward.
In responding to a grass fire, firefighters found the 36 year old woman in the nude, with cuts to her head and severe burns over 55% of her body. 

She remains in critical condition and police have not been able to talk to her.
