Seven dead babies found in Utah home

| April 13, 2014

Call it demonic possession, call it extreme mental illness—we are living in a crisis era in which violence runs rampant. When it is violence against the most vulnerable in our population, it is especially gut-wrenching. Today’s headlines lead many to wonder if things are deteriorating. There is, however, some reason to believe that what’s happening is that with technology, we hear more of what is going on in the world around us. This type of madness has existed since biblical times. That too was a very violent world. “God gave Noah the rainbow sign, said ‘No more water, the fire next time!” Perhaps that fire already is burning in the form of violence within our shores. Enemies of the country need not lift a finger against us. It seems we are bent on killing ourselves.

Pleasant Grove police made a grisly discovery Saturday: seven dead infants, six of them in cardboard boxes.

Megan Huntsman, 39, was arrested early Sunday morning on suspicion of six counts of murder.

Police believe she gave birth to the babies then killed them over the past decade, according to a police news release.

On Saturday, police responded to a call from Huntsman’s ex-husband about a dead infant found inside a Pleasant Grove home that Huntsman lived in until 2011. Officers arrived and found the body of a newborn infant, who appeared to be full term, according to the release.

Police obtained a search warrant for the home and found six more babies packaged in separate cardboard boxes inside the garage, said police Capt. Michael Roberts
