Recently, The North Carolina Beat interviewed the mother of the victim, Alexis Ellis, who revealed that 51-year-old Darrell Lawrence Bailey was not a stranger to her family. Alexis shared that she first met Darrell in 2020 while they were both working as forklift drivers at Home Depot in Savannah, Georgia. Initially, their relationship was amicable. In January 2023, Alexis confided in Darrell about wanting to distance herself from a man she was involved with, and Darrell kindly offered to provide shelter for her and her children.

Tragically, in February 2023, Darrell allegedly assaulted Alexis‘ daughter in her own room.

While Alexis did not go into detail with us, Assistant District Attorney Kayla Kudratt, a Henry County prosecutor, provided a detailed account of what Darrell did to Alexis’s 14-year-old daughter.

According to audio of the court hearing obtained by The North Carolina Beat, prosecutor Kudratt said that while Alexis and her three children were living with Darrell until she got on her feet, all four of them would sleep in the same room together. On February 23, 2023, the prosecutor stated that Alexis attended a funeral and asked Darrell to look after the children while she was away.

Alexis was under the impression that Darrell would still be going to work, leaving the kids home alone throughout the day. However, for some reason, Darrell did not go to work, as stated by the prosecutor.

On the night of February 24, 2023, transitioning into February 25, 2023, Darrell moved a mattress from the room where Alexis and her children slept to the living room. This was done so that Alexis’s two sons could sleep in the living room while the victim stayed in the bedroom.

That same night, the prosecutor stated that Darrell entered the room where the victim was alone and proceeded to rub the victim’s entire body.

According to the prosecutor Kayla Kudratt, she said that if the case had gone to trial, there would have been a video of Darrell confessing to what he did to the victim. She said Darrell forcefully removed the victim’s pants and underwear, placed his face over her v*gina, and began licking it, despite the victim’s pleas for him to stop as it was painful.

“He continued anyway,” Kayla Krudatt, the prosecutor, said.

Darrell then proceeded to remove the rest of the victim’s clothing and began kissing her and inserting his fingers into her v*gina, as stated by the prosecutor. The victim told the forensic interviewer that it felt like Darrell was scratching her va*ina. According to the prosecutor, Darrell continued by sucking and licking the 14-year-old victim’s breast and kissing her on the mouth.

According to the prosecutor, the victim begged Darrell to stop, but he wouldn’t. He then inserted his penis inside her va*ina as she told him to stop. He whispered, “Shhh, it’s okay. I know… I know, just take it.” Darrell told the victim that he was tripping and asked the victim to let him put it in “one time.”

The victim tried to push Darrell off of her, but the prosecutor says that every time, Darrell would use his body weight to essentially pin her down, restricting her movement. At other times, Kudratt said Darrell would try to grab the victim’s arm as she pushed him away, and he would pin her to the bed.

The prosecutor also stated that Darrell made the victim engage in sexual acts, including touching his genitals and rubbing her genitals. He attempted to have intercourse with her anally after flipping her over. He then turned her back over, resumed oral sex, and forced her to perform oral sex on him by grabbing her head.

“He continued to tell her, ‘suck on it, suck on it’,” said the prosecutor, Kayla Krudatt.

Afterwards, Darrell went back to licking and sucking on the victim’s va*ina. The victim begged Darrell to stop and pleaded with him to let her go back to sleep. Darrell allowed the victim to go back to sleep, but he slept naked with the child, his arms over her to prevent her from leaving.

Here’s a snapshot we snagged of Dess Dior having a chat with the Henry County Sheriff Deputies after she called them. She was trying to kick out Alexis and her teenage daughter from her dad’s place after he got arrested for what he did. But the aspiring rapper quickly realized it was a move she couldn’t pull off.
