Savanna Lafontaine-Greywind was reportedly murdered for her baby. This has been admitted by a North Dakota woman who has been charged in the disappearance of the 22-year old woman. Her body was reportedly fished out from a river Sunday evening.
Police in North Dakota claim that a woman has admitted of taking advantage of the young woman in order to get her baby. The woman Brooke Lynn Crews and her boyfriend, William Hoehn, have been charged in disappearance and death of the Savanna Greywind.
Savanna Greywind, a Tokio, North Dakota based woman who was last seen on 19th August had studied at North Dakota State University. Her relatives are in state of shock. Till now, they were expecting some sort of miracle and were hopeful that she may be found alive. But it didn’t happen.
In the meantime, charges filed against the couple, Brooke Lynn Crews and her boyfriend, William Hoehn, don’t shed any light on Savanna Greywind died. Police Chief David Todd said that the woman’s body was discovered floating in the river, packed in plastic. Fargo Police Department Facebook page mentions Savannah’s name as Savanna Marie Greywind.
Fargo Police Department’s Facebook page says, “At approximately 4:30 pm on Saturday, August 19th, the family of 22 year-old Fargo resident Savanna Marie Greywind, reported her as a missing person. Savanna was reported to be 8 months pregnant. She was last seen at about 1:30 pm…Savanna had went to a neighboring apartment to assist her neighbor with a sewing project. That apartment is in the same building in which Savanna resides…The tenants of the apartment she visited are 38 year-old Brooke Lynn Crews and 32 year-old William Henry Hoehn. They live at 2825 9th St. N. apartment #5 in Fargo…In the initial missing person’s investigation, interviews were conducted with Crews and Hoehn and no leads were developed. Crews indicated that Savanna had left the apartment after helping her with the sewing project”.
While her baby was alive—discovered at the apartment where Greywind was last seen alive, police say—authorities, family and a community searching up and down for clues still couldn’t find the baby’s mother, who vanished. Nonetheless, the mystery ended when Greywind’s body was found Sunday evening by kayakers in the Red River, which borders North Dakota and Minnesota, “heavily wrapped in plastic and duct tape” and stuck on a tree in the water.
Prosecutors say that Brooke Lynn Crews told police she arranged to have Greywind come to her apartment on Aug. 19 — the day Greywind was last seen alive — and told her how to self-induce birth by breaking her own water. Crews told police that Greywind left, but came back two days later to give her the newborn baby. But Crews’ boyfriend, William Hoehn, told police that he came home Aug. 19 to find Crews cleaning up blood in their bathroom.
William Hoehn and Brooke Crews are charged with killing Savanna Greywind of Fargo, N.D. when she was 8 months pregnant. Officials claim that the two people arrested in the cased said that the two indicated that the baby girl belonged to Greywind, but wouldn’t cooperate in the search for the woman.
Meanwhile reports suggest that a judge has set a $2 million cash bail for both after prosecutors said the couple had been searching travel websites online, indicating the two were planning to disappear.
Police chief David Todd said that Savanna was apparently a “victim of a cruel and vicious act of depravity” and said officials will continue to pursue justice for her. “Our sincere condolences and thoughts and prayers go out to the Greywind family as they suffer through this horrible loss…I’ll tell you our hearts are heavy as we mourn the loss of this young lady”, police chief said
