And her family just can’t believe the sweet girl they knew could do this… Can they believe she was a meth addict for all those years? She killed six newborns and had one stillborn and no one knew until her now estranged husband found the bodies in the garage. Boy, do I have a lot of questions here. How could it be that no one even noticed she was pregnant all those times? How could no one notice the signs of meth addiction? Did no one clean out the garage since 1996? If I were the DA, I’d be looking long and hard at hubby right about now as well. This woman was a monster in plain site, yet no one even noticed. I find that very, very hard to believe.
From the Daily Mail:
A Utah woman convicted of strangling six of her newborns and hiding their bodies in her garage will serve 49 years in prison before her first parole hearing.
Megan Huntsman, 40, has been scheduled to appear before the Utah Board of Pardons in April 2064 when she will be 89 years old, Parole spokesman Jim Hatch told Fox 13 on Friday.
The parole board will decide her release date.
The Pleasant Grove woman, who told police she was too addicted to meth to care for more children during the decade she killed the babies, was handed six sentences of five years to life in prison in April.
Authorities said Huntsman’s estranged husband was the babies’ father and found their stored bodies last April.
A seventh baby found in the garage was stillborn.
According to the KSL local news station, a detective recounted Huntsman’s cold and deliberate method of execution during her sentence hearing in April.
The officer said Huntsman said she would take the babies in her hands when they were just minutes old.
Then, he said, she would press on their necks with her thumbs until they choked to death.
Ultimately the corpses of seven babies were found – one of which was determined to have been stillborn.
The crimes were uncovered by Huntsman’s husband Darren West – now estranged – who called police when he found the first body.
The births and murders are said to have taken place from 1996 to 2006.
According to stunned neighbors when she was arrested, Huntsman was ‘perpetually slim’ and they would never have suspected she was pregnant.
The small city of Pleasant Grove is south of Salt Lake City.
I have to wonder if the husband knew and turned her in when he got sick of her. I’d like to give him the benefit of the doubt, but come on. And the fact that she justified the murders because the babies were only a few minutes old each time and she quickly strangled them is cold beyond human belief. Evidently she never considered getting help for the meth addiction, it was far easier to kill and hide than do that. She also couldn’t be bothered with birth control – what a nuisance. This woman shouldn’t be imprisoned – she should be executed immediately. Infanticide is one of the most monstrous acts known to humans and she is an expert at it. Of course, her neighbors would never have suspected. She looked so nice and was such a good neighbor. Evil wears a normal face, doesn’t it?
