A Woman Pled Guilty To Killing A Young Mother And Stealing Her Baby

A woman has admitted to her role in the violent murder of a young North Dakota mother. According to People, 38-year-old Brooke Crews of Fargo confessed to killing 22-year-old Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind and stealing her baby.

LaFontaine-Greywind was reportedly murdered in August and her baby was ripped from her womb. At her funeral in September, her boyfriend, Ashton Matheny, brought the infant who survived. “It was wonderful that [the baby] Haisley Jo was able to spend those moments along with her family, as well,” the family spokeswoman said.

On August 19, LaFontaine-Greywind disappeared from her apartment while eight months pregnant. She told her family she was going to help Crews (seen below) with a sewing project but never returned.

On August 27, her body was found in plastic wrap in the Red River. The medical examiner called her cause of death “homicidal violence.” No further details on the manner of death or how the baby was

Teen Mother Arrested After Posting Facebook Photo Of 6-Month-Old Baby Brandishing Knife

A teen mother from San Diego allegedly uploaded a disturbing photo to Facebook of her 6-month-old baby brandishing a knife, which was nearly as big as the child’s arm. She also reportedly posted a video that showed her crying baby being repeatedly smacked in the head.

Fellow Facebook users who watched the upsetting footage immediately alerted police, and Jowi Victoria Morales, 18, was arrested last Thursday for outstanding domestic violence charges. It is unclear if the assault is being conducted by Morales or another person, and it is unknown if the charges are related to this incident.

“Very, very, very sad,” neighbor Guillermina Contreras told NBC7. “I do know that in that house there was trouble.”

The Child Abuse and Domestic Violence investigators are reportedly looking into this case. According to Fox5 San Diego, the child has not suffered any injuries.

Mother And Boyfriend Accused Of Murdering 3-Year-Old Boy, Encasing His Body In Concrete

The body of a 3-year-old boy was discovered encased in concrete at a Wichita, Kansas home back in September. Now, the child’s mother and her boyfriend are being charged with first-degree murder. On Tuesday, Miranda Miller and Stephen Bodine were charged for Evan Brewer’s death, according to The New York Times. The couple is expected to appear in court this week, and at this time, it is unclear if they have lawyers who can speak on their behalf.

A landlord discovered Brewer’s body while cleaning out the home after Miller and Bodine had moved out. According to The New York Times, the landlord noticed a foul smell exuding through a concrete structure in the home. The couple, however, was already in jail on prior, unrelated charges, and each of them are now being held on $500,000 bail.

Evan’s dad, Carlo Brewer, was concerned about

The Flu Killed A Healthy Young Mother One Day After Being Diagnosed

A young mother died one day after getting diagnosed with the flu. According to Fox10, 20-year-old Alani Murrieta of Phoenix, Arizona checked into the hospital last Tuesday morning and died by afternoon. 

Her family is in shock, saying that Murrieta hardly ever got sick. “Monday she was still feeling sick, so her sister took her to urgent care, her and her kids. They diagnosed them with the flu, sent her home with flu meds,” her aunt, Stephanie Gonzales, said. She explains that after the diagnosis, Murrieta’s condition steadily worsened. “Her oxygen levels were low. They took an x-ray around 9 that morning, and they told her she had pneumonia, and it kind of just went down hill after that.”

Doctors reportedly told the aunt that Murrieta had a flu that turned into pneumonia. She says that her niece had no  pre-existing conditions and was healthy. Now, the

Man Kills Mother And Dismembers Body After Being Told To Turn Down His Music

A middle-aged Illinois man killed his mother after he was told that he was playing his Jimi Hendrix music too loudly, prosecutors claimed on Tuesday.

Brian Peck, 55, then allegedly dismembered his mother’s body and discarded it in bags and luggage along Chicago’s lakefront, the Chicago Tribune reported. Though investigators are still testing the recovered remains to determine if they belong to Peck’s mother, Gail Peck, 76, police believe there is already enough evidence to charge Brian Peck, including an identifiable scar on the recovered body.

Peck confessed to the killing and dismemberment, prosecutors said. He initially told investigators that his mother had left to walk her dog, and then the dog returned without her.

After investigators searched Peck’s home, they found blood stains over floors, furniture and recently purchased cleaning supplies. Though Peck initially claimed the blood was the result of an accident, he changed his story when police showed him

Mother Charged In Death Of Infant Who Was Found Drowned In A Duffel Bag

A 25-year-old woman from Danville, Virginia was charged on Monday with first-degree murder after her newborn drowned last year. Vanessa Danielle Poteat is currently in Danville City Jail without bond.

Last summer, the local police department was called to a home in Danville after Poteat’s ex-boyfriend discovered the baby inside a duffel bag, according to WSET. Search warrants state that he found the “deceased infant that had been dead for some time.”

According to the warrant, Poteat reportedly asked her ex to pick up the bag and other belongings, which she had stored at his mother’s house. It was there he made the gruesome discovery.

Police confiscated that black duffel bag, a towel, some clothing and a handwritten note from the home.

“I saw them bring out a body bag and I said, ‘Oh my Lord’ someone passed away and the brought the gurney out and put the body bag on the gurney and folded

Mother Finds ‘Deleted’ Video Of Man Allegedly Raping 7-Year-Old Daughter

A Texas man was arrested on Sunday after a woman made a horrifying discovery while looking at his tablet. According to WDSU, she found a video of 35-year-old Jose Trinidad Gonzalez allegedly raping her own 7-year-old daughter in the “deleted photos” folder.

According to a San Antonio Police Department arrest report, Gonzalez allowed the victim and her siblings to play games on his iPad. On Sunday, the children’s mother took a look at the tablet to see what kind of games her kids were playing. Perhaps her gut told her something was off about Gonzalez because she opened the “deleted photos” folder of the device. There, she reportedly saw a photograph of her daughter’s genitals and the video of Gonzalez and her daughter.

Gonzalez’s relation to the mother and her children have not been released by police, the Miami Herald reports. However, KENS5 said it was a man she
