Mendal Johnson's only novel, Let's Go Play at the Adams', in which a 20-year old babysitter is kidnapped, tortured, and murdered by a handful of teens she is assigned to sit, was influenced by this case. Sylvia Marie Likens (January 3, 1949 - October 26, 1965) was an American murder victim. She was tortured to death by Gertrude Baniszewski, Baniszewski's children, and other young people from their neighborhood. Her parents, who were carnival workers, had left Likens and her sister Jenny in the care of the Baniszewski family three months before her death in exchange for $20 a week. Baniszewski, her daughter Paula, her son John, and two neighborhood youths (Coy Hubbard and Richard Hobbs) were charged with and convicted of the crime.
