A pregnant woman who had gone to a residence in Chicago in response to a Facebook free childrens offer became strict and her children shot from her uterus, police and family members said. The newborn was in rough condition and is not expected to survive.
Four people are questioned and three have been arrested, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told CBS Chicago. One of the people in storage is considered a person of interest, the station reports.
Charges including murders filed Thursday afternoon, Guglielmi said.
The body of the 19-year-old Marlen Ochoa-Uriostegui was found early Wednesday behind the house.on April 23, the same day, paramedics called the home several miles away on the southwest side of a newborn breathing problem.
"We believe she was murdered and we believe that the child was forced to be removed after that murder," Guglielmi said, calling it "undoubtedly an act of violence".
According to WLS TV, a 911 sender reported that a 46-year-old woman had called to say she had born 10 minutes earlier and the baby was pale and blue and not breathing.
The Ochoa-Uriostegui family, a toxic mother of a 3-year-old son, said that a woman on Facebook had attracted her to the home by offering prams and baby clothes. Cecelia Garcia, a spokesman for the family, said that Ochoa-Uriostegui met the woman through a Facebook group called "Help a sister out."
"She gave away clothes, presumably under the assumption that her daughters had been given clothes and they all had these extra boy clothes," Garcia said.
A neighbor told CBS Chicago that on April 23, the woman who lived in the house did not run a newborn and had a blood-shielded shirt, but she had no blood on her gray shorts. The neighbor said that the woman told her: "I only had the baby and it does not breathe."
A firefighter chairman confirmed to CBS Chicago. A child in need was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center by ambulance from the same address around 6 pm that day.
Garcia said the police informed the family the DNA test was confirmed Tuesday the child is Ochoa-Uriostegui.
"It just seems surreal. You see these things in the cinema," said Garcia station. "You never know anyone, people are actually that evil."
The Ochoa-Uriostegui family has been looking for her since her disappearance more than three weeks ago, organizing search parties and running police for investigation updates. On the due date, the family passed a press conference and asked for someone who had information to come forward.
Ochoa-Uriostegui's mother said her daughter seemed normal before her disappearance and already began to have mild contractions. said she doubted that her daughter would have left her young son and said she feared she would have been abducted.
On Tuesday, her husband, Yiovanni Lopez, visited his son in the hospital and named him Yadiel, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
"Why did these people, why did these bad people do it? She did nothing for them," said Lopez WLS. "She was a good person."
