The body of a missing pregnant woman has been found just days after her newborn baby was reportedly found in her neighbour’s flat. Savanna Lafontaine-Greywind was eight months pregnant when she went missing on August 19, sparking a search involving hundreds of people.
The 22-year-old’s body was discovered by kayakers on the Red River in North Dakota, USA, on Sunday evening; police say her body had been wrapped in a plastic bag and was stuck on a log in the river. People in the Red River Valley apparently suspected she may have been the victim of ‘womb raiders’ who forcibly took her baby. Days earlier, officers had found a healthy newborn baby girl, believed to be Savanna’s child, in oher neighbour’s apartment.
Authorities are investigating a number of possible scenarios surrounding the incident, including whether Savanna’s child was removed from her womb. Family members claimed Savannah had gone up to the same neighbour’s flat as she needed a model while sewing a dress, but never came back home. Police have arrested Brooke Lynn Crews, 38, and William Henry Hoehn, 32, who are thought to be residents of that apartment.
