Body of missing Fargo woman, 8 months pregnant, found wrapped in plastic in a river

The body of a missing pregnant woman has been found in North Dakota.

KSTP reports that kayakers found the body of 22-year-old Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind wrapped in plastic  in a river north of Fargo. The police department announced on its Facebook page that the body had been positively identified as Greywind on Sunday night.

The police department initially said they would hold a press conference later Sunday night to provide further details, but rescheduled it for Monday.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Greywind vanished from her apartment complex last Saturday after she visited an upstairs neighbor to try on a dress. She was eight months pregnant at the time of her disappearance.

On Thursday, investigators found a newborn baby in that apartment, belonging to Brooke Lynn Crews, 38, and William Henry Hoehn, 32. Police said they believe the child is Greywind’s and arrested Crews and Hoehn, charging them with felony conspiracy to commit kidnapping. The department said in a press conference on Friday that the couple was not cooperating with the investigation.

Police had zeroed in on a farmstead not far from the Red River, where the young woman was found, and a search party was at that location at about the same time that kayakers discovered Greywind.

“There are some suspicious items in that farmstead that lead us to believe that that may be a crime scene,” Fargo Police Chief David Todd said in a press conference.

At this time, no additional charges have been filed.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
