Woman Who Faked Pregnancy Murders New Mother and Steals Her Baby

A 36-year-old Indiana woman apparently decided to fake her pregnancy, and kidnap someone else’s child to raise as her own. And so, she posed as a social worker to lure a new mom into her home, where she then murdered the mother, and stole the baby. (I’m not sure, but I think there is a specific level in Hell designated for people just like this.)

A 36-year-old Indiana woman now in police custody is suspected of carrying out a twisted plot of kidnapping and killing a young mother in order to steal the victim’s newborn baby and claim the child as her own.

The suspect, who has not been identified, lives in Gary, Indiana, where the body of the victim, Samantha Fleming, was found Friday wrapped up in plastic and doused with bleach.

Police believe the woman went to the home of 23-year-old Fleming in Anderson, 180 miles away, posing as a Child Protective Services employee and convinced Fleming to come with her to Gary.

Fleming recently gave birth to a daughter, Serenity, and lives with her boyfriend, but disappeared with her baby on April 5.

Incredibly, the baby has been found by police and is safe, CBS reported.

The suspect is said to have known a lot of personal information about Fleming and successfully posed as a case worker, leading Fleming to believe she had to attend a court hearing.

Fleming was reported missing by her boyfriend. 

Police were led to Gary after Fleming’s cell phone signal was picked up in the city, where the young mother’s wallet was also found near an apartment block.

Police followed other leads to the suspect’s home.

It is unclear, at this point, how the suspect collected so much information about the new mother. Facebook? Twitter? Other social networking sites? Keep stories like this in the back of your mind next time you’re about to type away about your personal life online.

As a side note, cases like this are pretty much tailor made for the death penalty.
