There is no way to sanitize what happened to 16-year-old Desiree Robinson.
Authorities say a man twice Robinson’s age pimped her out to a man who sexually abused her, beat her, then slit her throat and left her on the floor of a garage in Markham.
Her body was found on Christmas Eve. She’d been missing from her grandparents’ home a couple of weeks.
Within days, Cook County prosecutors charged Antonio Rosales with the teen’s murder.
