A Utah woman faces murder charges, after police found the remains of seven babies inside her former home. Andrew Spencer reports neighbors were very shocked by the news. Over the course of 10 years, police say Megan Huntsman gave birth to, then killed at least six babies. The remains were found inside this home in Pleasant Grove, Utah, a small city just north of Provo. Huntsman moved out of the house in 2011; it belongs to the family of her estranged husband. "Some of the family members of the residents were cleaning out the garage, came across a suspicious package," says Capt. Michael Roberts of the Pleasant Grove Police Dept. "It had kind of a pungent odor." That led to a full-scale search, in which police found the remains of seven dead babies, a disturbing thought, especially for neighbors. "She was always a good baby-sitter, because..." says Kathie Hawker, a former neighbor. "She baby-sat my grandchildren when they were little." "We had no idea, absolutely no idea what it could have been," says another former neighbor. Some also found it odd that they didn't notice Huntsman had been pregnant. "We always thought she looked skinny," said Aaron Hawker, a former neighbor. "We never saw any evidence of pregnancies." The39-year-old was booked into the Utah County Jail. Police say they searched her current home, but they didn't find anything noteworthy there.
