Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind’s family hires high-profile attorney Gloria Allred

The family of murdered pregnant woman Savannah LaFontaine-Greywind has reportedly elicited the help of high-profile victims’ rights attorney Gloria Allred.

The announcement was made on the family’s Facebook page on Wednesday. Allred later confirmed the news to KFYR but declined to comment further.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, LaFontaine-Greywind, 22, was eight months pregnant when she disappeared from her Fargo, North Dakota, apartment on August 19. Kayakers found the woman’s remains wrapped in plastic near the Red River on August 27.

Her upstairs neighbors, William Henry Hoehn, 32, and Brooke Lynn Crews, 38, were arrested August 24 after authorities allegedly found the victim’s 2-day-old baby girl alive in their apartment.

Though Fargo Police said LaFontaine-Greywind died from “homicidal violence,” they haven’t revealed her exact cause of death.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that Crews and Hoehn recently pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to kidnap and conspiracy to murder charges. A judge has sealed a search warrant, ruling that it could be prejudicial to the defendants if it were released.

Fargo City Attorney Erik Johnson told the Star Tribune that he isn’t sure why Allred is involved with the case. He also claimed that the victim’s family hasn’t taken legal action against the city at this time.
