Newborn Found in Search for Missing Pregnant Mother: Police
Five days after Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind, a pregnant mother, went missing in Fargo, North Dakota, a startling discovery was made.
Investigators reportedly found a newborn baby inside her North Fargo apartment building on Thursday.
Two people have been arrested in her disappearance, Fargo Police said in a news release. Brooke Lynn Crews, 38, and William Henry Hoehn, 32, both lived in the same apartment building as LaFontaine-Greywind, WDAY6 reported.
Lafontaine-Greywind, 22, was last seen leaving her apartment on Aug. 19 to help a neighbor who needed to model a handmade dress.
Crews and Hoehn were arrested and charged with felony conspiracy to commit kidnapping, Fargo Police said. They’re now being held at the Cass County Jail.
As of Thursday, her whereabouts remained unknown.
Six investigators wearing HAZMAT suits entered the apartment building on Thursday, WDAY reported. One investigator with a shovel was seen walking in the back of the building.
“Our investigation thus far indicates the probability that this is Savanna Greywind’s child,” police said on Facebook of the newborn.
Norberta LaFontaine-Greywind, the mother, told the Duluth News-Tribune that her daughter left behind her car and wallet, adding that she doesn’t believe that the woman would leave on her own. She had also ordered pizza before going upstairs to help her neighbor.
“I immediately knew something was wrong because her car is here,” her mother was quoted as saying.
“She’s eight months pregnant. Her feet were swollen, so she wouldn’t have taken up walking like that. There was pizza here that she hadn’t eaten. She would not just leave that lady’s apartment and go somewhere.”
