Utah woman couldn't say how many babies in garage: Police

Utah Woman Couldn't Say How Many Babies In Garage: Police

Police say the Utah woman accused of killing six babies and hiding them along with a stillborn couldn't tell detectives exactly how many infants she had in her home.

KSTU reports Megan Huntsman told detectives there were eight or nine babies in her home, but police said they found seven. Police said six of those infants died after Huntsman allegedly strangled them.

KTVX notes police also released information from search warrants that noted the bodies were hidden in Huntsman's garage. One of them was reportedly in a box sealed with electrical tape.

Police say Huntsman's ex-husband, Darren West, found one of the babies when he went to the to get some of his belongings out of the garage. West is currently living in a halfway house after serving eight years in prison for drug crimes.

After police arrived, The Salt Lake Tribune reports they found bodies in other boxes, one of them hidden in a cubby, and another inside a cabinet.

Huntsman reportedly told West that he was the father of the baby he had found. KSL-TV notes Huntsman also has three daughters. One of them was born during the time period she allegedly killed the other newborns.

"She didn't say anything. No outward expression of emotions."
Earlier in the week, Huntsman was formally charged with six counts of murder.

Investigators have gotten DNA from all the babies, as well as Huntsman and West, to determine who the parents are. Huntsman is currently being held on a $6 million bail. Her next scheduled court appearance is May 19. Prosecutors haven't publicly stated any motive.

This woman should be sentence to death. Tax payers money would go to waste if she get life in prison. If she was mental why didn't she kill her self. She is SMART enough to hide the babies in the garage and taped up the boxes. I still don't understand no family members never know about all those pregnancies ????? Something is not right here.

What this women did was awful, but she is psychotic (perhaps because of her drug use.) She suffers from schizophrenia and should be in a psychiatric hospital. With the proper medication, she could reverse the illness. All who want her tortured and hanged might try to forgive her for she knows not what she did.

Yes, and Utah is the only state that still uses death by firing squad.

Hey, maybe if men were responsible and used birth control there wouldn't be that many abortions or these types of situations, why is the woman to blame always... because that's easy, and men don't have to bear the burden of their irresponsible ways.
