A 19-year-old pregnant woman who disappeared in Chicago last month has been found dead, according to the Associated Press.
Marlen Ochoa-Uriostegui was found dead behind a home where several people were taken into custody.
Police say they believe the woman was murdered “and we believe that the baby was forcibly removed following the murder.”
According to the Associated Press, “the baby was hospitalized and is in “grave” condition after being cut from the mother’s body.”
The cause of death is said to be ligature strangulation.
