Missing pregnant woman found dead in river after her newborn baby was allegedly stolen by neighbours
The body of a missing pregnant woman was found in a river, just days after her newborn baby was found at her neighbour's home.
Savanna Lafontaine-Greywind (22) was eight months pregnant when she went missing from her home in North Dakota, US on August 19.
Police found Savanna's newborn baby at her neighbour's apartment and then arrested Brooke Lynn Crews (38) and William Henry Hoehn (32) who lived there.
Days later, kayakers found Ms Lafontaine-Greywind body wrapped in plastic, floating along the river on a log, according to Forum News.
Police are still waiting for DNA confirmation that the child is Ms Lafontaine- Greywind’s, but they say that the two suspects have already confirmed the baby is hers.
The police chief told the Forum that police were investigating a host of possible explanations for the disappearance—“including Savanna being held against her will and/or her unborn child being induced or removed and possibly being alive.”
The infant was immediately taken to hospital where the child was in good health and placed under the protective custody of Cass County Social Services, police said.
Neighbours Crews and Hoehn are being held at the Cass County Jail awaiting formal charges of conspiracy to commit kidnapping.
