THIS IS MADNESS.
Police found seven dead babies placed in cardboard boxes in the former Utah home of Megan Huntsman, who's been arrested and charged with six counts of murder. (It's not clear why there weren't seven counts, according to the Associated Press.) Huntsman, who's 39, reportedly gave birth to the infants herself between 1996 and 2006. Officers responded to a call Saturday from Huntsman's estranged husband, Darren West, about a dead infant at the home. Officers then discovered the six other bodies, and say they don't believe West had anything to do with the deaths. Asked how West could have been kept in the dark, a police captain said, "That's the million-dollar question. Amazing." [Full Story: CNN]
The thought of these officers having to make this gruesome discovery turns my stomach. The thought of these tiny babies being killed is something I just can't even talk about. The fact that this woman had older children who had no clue their mother had been pregnant 7 other times blows my mind.
What is wrong with some people?!
