Megan Huntsman, 39, is believed to be the mother of all the dead infants police suspect were killed between 1996 and 2006.
Cops were called to the house Saturday after Huntsman’s ex-husband, Darren West, discovered one of the dead babies while cleaning out the garage of a home where Huntsman previously lived.
Officers searched the garage and found six more babies in cardboard boxes, Roberts said.
Roberts said the ex-husband who is believed to have fathered the slain infants was not a suspect in the infanticide.
“We don’t believe he had any knowledge of the situation,” Roberts said of West.
Asked how it was possible that West did not know about the slain babies, Roberts said, “That’s the million-dollar question. Amazing.”
According to investigators, Huntsman admitted to police that she either suffocated or strangled the babies immediately after they were born.
PLEASANT GROVE, Utah (AP) — A judge set a $6 million bail for a Utah woman accused of killing six babies that she gave birth to over 10 years. State Judge Steven Hansen in Provo set bail at $1 million for each child when Megan Huntsman appeared via video in a Utah courtroom Monday morning.
Investigators on Monday were still trying to determine if the seven babies had the same father or multiple fathers, Buhman said.
The babies' bodies were sent to the Utah medical examiner's office for tests, including one to determine the cause of death. DNA samples taken from the suspect and her husband will determine definitively whether the two are the parents, as investigators believe.
