AKIPRESS.COM - Megan Huntsman, 39, was arrested after her estranged husband reported the discovery of an infant’s corpse in the garage of the home they used to share, leading police to find six more bodies.
A woman was arrested Sunday on suspicion of killing seven babies found dead in her former home, south of Salt Lake City, Utah.
The grisly discovery was made in the former abode of Megan Huntsman, 39. It is believed they are the bodies of children she gave birth to from 1996 to 2006.
Her husband, believed to be the father of the infants, who were all found in individual cardboard boxes, apparently alerted police after stumbling across one. The six other corpses were discovered once officers arrived at the scene.
So far, police have not commented on either a motive or Huntsman’s reaction to her arrest. Police Captain Michael Roberts has said that the husband, whose name has not yet been released, is not suspected of any involvement.
Huntsman’s three daughters, aged around 13 to 20, are still understood to live with their father at the house.
The bodies are currently at the state medical examiner’s office in Salt Lake City, where they are undergoing tests to reveal the cause of death and the parentage of the deceased, the Associated Press reported.
