Finally Missing Pregnant Woman Found Dead in Red River

Posted August 30, 2017

Her body has been sent to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner for an autopsy and forensic examination.

Brooke Lynn Crews the next door neighbor of slain 22 year old North Fargo, North Dakota woman Savannah Lafontaine-Greywind has admitted taking advantage of her pregnant victim because she wanted to pass the unborn woman's child as her own.

The couple accused of killing Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind allegedly provided police with conflicting stories about how they ended up with the missing woman's baby.

Two suspects in the death of a pregnant woman in North Dakota will face three charges including conspiracy to commit murder, a prosecutor said Monday. They are being held at the Cass County Jail awaiting formal charges of conspiracy to commit kidnapping, a felony.

Officials identified the body found in rural Clay County Sunday evening as that of LaFontaine-Greywind. The girl, who was in good health, was with Crews when she was arrested. Kayakers eventually discovered Ms. Greywind's body in the water, wrapped in plastic and caught on a log.

"We still have a lot of investigating to do to put [together] the puzzle pieces in this case", Fargo Police Chief David Todd told reporters on Monday. However, they are not answering questions in regards to LaFontaine-Greywind's disappearance.

From the beginning, Greywind says she suspected her daughter had been harmed - a suspicion that tragically proved true.

Investigators remain tight-lipped about what happened to LaFontaine-Greywind after she went to that apartment. Two recreational kayakers had come upon her body, which was wrapped in plastic and secured with duct tape.

Todd said LaFontaine-Greywind's family had been notified.

She claimed she taught Savanna how to self-induce childbirth.

Since then, a newborn baby was found in the apartment building where she was last seen.

Police have said Crews and Hoehn were taken into custody and indicated that the baby girl belonged to Greywind, but wouldn't cooperate in the search for the woman.

Hoehn's criminal history includes a 2012 conviction in Grand Forks County for child neglect or abuse and a 2016 conviction in Cass County for simple assault-domestic violence.

Detectives were also searching a farmhouse on the Minnesota side of the Red River after suspicious items were found that led police to believe it was a crime scene.
