Megan Huntsman, the Utah mom who stood accused of killing her six babies she gave birthed over the course of the past 10 years, has admitted to her heinous crimes, police say.
The evil spirit of Andrea Yates has been reincarnated for a Utah community that is completely stunned.
Prior to their deaths, the 39-year-old baby murderer she either strangled or suffocated the children before wrapping them in a towel or t-shirt.
Reports the AP:
According to a probable cause statement released by police Monday, Megan Huntsman said that between 1996 and 2006, she gave birth to at least seven babies at her home and that all but one of them were born alive.
Huntsman is being held on $6 million bail — $1 million for each baby she’s accused of killing. It wasn’t immediately clear if she had an attorney.
Huntsman was arrested Sunday on six counts of murder after police found the infants’ tiny bodies. A seventh baby found appears to have been stillborn, Utah County Attorney Jeffrey Buhman said.
Formal charges have not yet been filed against Huntsman and no other arrests have been made but Buhman said the investigation remains open.
Investigators were trying to determine if the seven babies had the same father or multiple fathers, Buhman said.
Police Capt. Michael Roberts said officers responded to a call from him Saturday about a dead infant, and then they found the six other bodies.
Huntsman’s estranged husband was just recently released from prison after serving a nine-year sentence for drug-related charges and is not considered to be a person of interest at press time. The notion that he had no idea some sinister plot was afoot has the local law enforcement baffled, however.
