Investigators are determining whether the Fargo, North Dakota, couple arrested in connection with Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind’s disappearance are “womb raiders.”
At last week’s press conference, Fargo Police Chief David Todd revealed that authorities are looking into a multitude of scenarios—including whether the baby girl was taken from LaFontaine-Greywind’s womb or if her labor was induced, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
As of Monday, police haven’t ascertained how the newborn was delivered, according to KTSP.
Eight months pregnant, LaFontaine-Greywind, 22, disappeared August 19 after helping an upstairs neighbor, later identified as Brooke Lynn Crews, 38, with a sewing project.
Crews, along with William Henry Hoehn, 32, were arrested and charged with felony conspiracy to commit kidnapping Thursday after officers allegedly found a healthy 2-day-old baby girl in their apartment.
Chief Todd has confirmed the body of Savanna Greywind has been found. If you're the praying type, please do so for the Greywind family.
During a Monday morning press conference, authorities revealed that they’re awaiting DNA results to determine if the baby girl belongs to the slain 22-year-old. The baby remains in protective custody, according to KTSP.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, LaFontaine-Greywind’s body was found wrapped in plastic near the Red River in Moorhead Sunday night.
Chief Todd revealed Monday that her body will be sent to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy, according to the Twin Cities Pioneer Press.
“Savanna was the victim of a cruel and vicious act of depravity.”
Following the discovery of LaFontaine-Greywind’s remains, Crews and Hoehn will also be charged with conspiracy to commit murder and providing false information to authorities, according to the local station.
The pair is scheduled to appear in court Monday afternoon.
