Lliana 'Lily' Peters was last seen riding her bike from her aunt's house to her father's house in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. Reports in court confirmed that Lilly was allegedly punched in the stomach, beaten with a stick, strangled to death, then sexually assaulted. He was believed to then go back to his house, change his clothes, then go back to where he left Lily's body, to conceal the homicide under some leaves.
Lily's father reported her missing about 9:00 p.m. that night when he realized that she never arrived at home. Her dad searched and found the bike nearby at the Duncan Creek Trail, but Lilly could not be found.
Lily's lifeless body was located at 8:54 a.m. by a passerby the next day.
To add, the suspect was fourteen-year-old Carson Peters-Berger. He is Lilly's cousin. He was charged with homicide, first degree sexual assault resulting in great bodily harm, and sexual assault of a child under 13. He was held on a $1 million dollar cash bond at the Northwest Regional Juvenile Detention Center in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. The suspect stated that after he realized everyone was looking for Lilly, he decided that 'he needed to hide her better', and returned to Lilly's body, drug her a few feet, and covered her with leaves. He stated to Investigators he rode with her on his hoverboard on the trail, when he convinced her to get off the trail, which is where the assault began.
Lilly had injuries that were consistent with blunt force trauma to her head, and some of her clothes were missing.
The suspects father previously pleaded guilty to child pornography's (prior to Lilly's murder) after investigators found several explicit images of children on his cell phone.
