Megan Huntsman, Utah Serial Baby-Killing Mom - 2014


The corpses of seven dead babies, six of them stored in shoe boxes, were found by the ex-husband of Megan Huntsman, 39,  in the garage of the Pleasant Grove, Utah house where she lived up until 2011. Mrs. Huntsman, now residing in West Valley City, was arrested early Sunday morning April 12, 2014, the day her ex-husband discovered one corpse and police later found five others, on suspicion of serially murdering the infants. She confessed to killing six of the children between 1996 and 2006 using either of two different murder methods: suffocation or strangling. One of the babies was, according to her claim, stillborn.
