Aspring Rapper Faces Felony Charges for Threatening Song to Rape Victims

SANTA MARIA, Calif. - Aspiring rapper, Anthony Murillo is facing two felony counts for threatening to kill two young rape victims in a song he posted online.

The lyrics, "go and get the Feds cus' you going to end up going to be laying on your bed because I'm coming for your head," played as the 19-year-old sat emotionless inside a Santa Maria courtroom Wednesday.

Anthony Murillo reportedly made the song for his friend, Shane Villalpando, the former St. Joseph High School student charged with having unlawful sex with two young classmates. Murillo posted the song online while Villalpando was serving his sentence in county jail.

"I still get nightmares. I still get scared," says victim, Delaney Henderson.

Delaney Henderson, who is now 18 years old, says Shane Villalpando raped her when she was 16 years old and then raped a 14-year-old classmate a year later.

"That's when the real tormenting started, the humiliation, the Facebook and the texting," says Delaney's mom, Kym Henderson.

Delaney says after she reported the crime, Shane's friends bullied her to point where she became suicidal.

"We were afraid for her," says Kym.

Delaney was forced to change schools and moved hundreds of miles away from home in hope she could escape the harassment.

"I was like like oh my god, I can't believe this just happened, my name is in a song," Delaney's reaction after she logged onto Facebook and heard Anthony Murillo's rap song, revealing her full name and threatening her life.

"I sat there in the dark and didn't say a word to anybody. I was freaking out for about 15 minutes, are they going to come kill me?"

"He literally took a threat on her life, you cant do that," says Kym.

While Anthony Murillo's fate still remains in the hands of the judge, Delaney shares her final message.

"You can't just get away with it, the threats are real," says Delaney.

Anthony Murillo is scheduled to be back in court on March 12.
