The autopsies of seven stillborn babies, who were brutally murdered by their mother and stuffed inside a cardboard box in Pleasant Grove garage, were completed and the reports were likely to be submitted with the police and Utah County prosecutors on Monday.
The postmortem was conducted by the Utah State Medical Examiner’s Office.
Police Capt. Michael Roberts has said that after the medical examiner’s office readies the autopsy reports, it will be handed to the police and Utah County prosecutors.
The court will further review the case for criminal charges.
Meanwhile, the 39-year-old accused was granted USD 6 million bail.
Megan Huntsman is suspected of killing her seven infants soon after giving birth to them.
According to the police, Huntsman admitted the brutal crime during the questioning. She told the cops that she suffocated her babies immediately after their births and then stuffing their bodies into cardboard boxes which were found at her residence.
A local court granted her bail a day after she was arrested. Huntsman was booked into the Utah County jail on six counts of murdering the babies born over roughly a 10-year period. According to the police sources, dead remains of a seventh infant were also found. The authorities believe that the baby was stillborn.
Huntsman, who has not been formally charged, was arrested after her estranged husband, Darren Brad West, discovered the remains of one infant while cleaning the garage.
Dead remains of six other newborns wrapped in a towel or shirt were found placed in plastic bags in separate cardboard boxes at her old residence in Pleasant Grove, about 35 miles south of Salt Lake City, where she lived until 2011, said Pleasant Grove Police Captain Michael Roberts.
According to the police, the seven babies were born to Huntsman from about 1996 to 2006.
