Missing Teen Mother’s Body Found In Trash Weeks After Her Baby Was ‘Cut From Her Belly’ In Womb Abduction Plot

Facebook

A 19-year-old pregnant woman who went missing last month was found dead with her unborn baby forcibly removed from her womb in a Chicago home, CNN reports.

Marlen Ochoa-Lopez, who was nine months pregnant, vanished on April 23, when she went to get baby items from a woman she met on a Facebook group, a spokeswoman for the family, Cecelia Garcia, told CNN affiliate WGN.

Her body was found this week, more than three weeks after her disappearance.

The Cook County, Illinois medical examiner’s office ruled the death a homicide by strangulation.

“We believe that she was murdered, and we believe that the baby was forcibly removed following that murder,” said Anthony Guglielmi, a Chicago police spokesman.

The newborn is alive but remains in grave condition.

The Chicago Fire Department said they received a call about a newborn in distress from the house Ochoa-Lopez’s body was later found on the day she went missing. The baby was rushed to the hospital with a woman who introduced herself as the mother.

“It’s to my knowledge that she is not the mother, and that’s all I have for you,” Larry Langford, a fire department spokesman, said.

According to a local pastor Jacobita Cortes, Ochoa-Lopez’s family has received confirmation that the newborn belongs to the late woman.

Ochoa-Lopez’s relatives are mourning the loss while praying that the baby survives.

“It just seems surreal. You see this stuff on the movies. You never get to know someone; people actually are this evil,” Garcia said.

Charges are currently pending against three people whom detectives have been investigating in the case. Neither of them has been identified.

Marlen Ochoa-Lopez is one of three pregnant women who went missing in Illinois.

The first woman to go missing was 27-year-old Kierra Coles.

Police say she went missing on Oct. 2, 2018. Coles was also three months pregnant at that time, which means her due has come and gone, and there’s still no news of her whereabouts.

“Please do not give up, because I’m not,” Kierra’s father, Joseph Coles on May 5, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Officials are offering a reward of $46,500 for information that leads to her recovery.

Coles worked in the U.S. Post Office, and they have contributed to the reward fund.

If you have information, police ask to call 312-747-8274.

The latest missing case is that of 43-year-old Chaunti Bryla who went missing on March 7.

While Bryla’s story doesn’t exactly fit the profiles of the other two women, she also went missing under bizarre circumstances. The mother of an 11-year-old son had just returned from the grocery store, but for some reason never put the groceries away. Her aunt said, according to WGN-TV, that she ran off and didn’t explain why. Even more strange is the fact that someone took out money out of her bank account from numerous locations.

Again, people are urged to call 911 or 312-747-8274 for any information about Bryla.

Hot Tip: If You Ever Want To Bag An Alabama Lawmaker’s Attention Get Pregnant

Alabama’s new law mandating an almost blanket ban on abortion, the strictest in the United States, was passed by a group of exclusively white, male politicians. The Alabama law will disproportionately affect poor women and women of color because they are less likely to have resources to obtain an abortion out-of-state nor the in-state resources available to white, upper-class women.

The brazen attack on women’s rights, the constitutional right to privacy, is a full-frontal assault and everyone from Rihanna to John Legend and everyone in between has some strong feelings.

Rihanna opted for a Twitter takedown by coming for each of the 25 white men who took away a woman’s right to her body:

She published their pictures to show the true face of privilege: 25 old white men.

Roe V. Wade was a landmark decision in American history and it preserved the fundamental right to an abortion.

That decision stemmed from the right to privacy so there are obviously a ton of people out there who need to be reminded, a woman’s choice is none of anyone’s damn business.

Ava DuVernay is here reminding all of us, it’s abortion and women today, tomorrow it could be you and your rights.

“First they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out because I’m not Jewish.” But who will be left to speak out for you if you don’t speak up first?

Male allies like John Legend are using their voices to call out this shocking attack on women.

Thank you, John, for speaking up and shining a light on this madness!

For real though, it’s 2019, how is this still something we are having to fight for?

We can’t lose sight of our shared progressive goals, because once we do we’ll find ourselves fighting to catch up.

I mean, is this our future?

It wouldn’t be the first time that fiction becomes reality. And it could happen a lot quicker than we expect.

Alabama’s anti-abortion law truly shows wear America’s priorities are at right now.

Even though nearly 40,000 people died from gun violence just last year. WTF?

And of all the states to pass this “pro-life” bill…are you kidding us?

This isn’t just an attack on women, it’s a full-frontal assault on women of color in particular.

When pigs fly right?

If all life is valued in Alabama then they should definitely start considering a few other laws…

The hypocrisy makes me physically sick.

The government spends more than $40 million a year to help men get boners yet not a penny to help at-risk women with their reproductive health needs if it requires an abortion.

The recent passing of Alabama’s law has inspired countless brave women to share their own abortion stories.

And the Internet is totally here for it. “We see you, we support you, and we’re going to keep fighting like hell for you.” 100%.

Stay out of our bodies!

Maybe these old white Christian men just get turned on by denying women their rights?

Nothing is hotter than taking away someone’s constitutionally protected rights, am I right?

So to the 25 white men who voted against women’s rights, here’s a tip:
