We're learning more about the woman accused of killing at least six of her infant children over a 10-year-period. Authorities say she stored their bodies in the garage of her home in Pleasant Grove. Seven bodies were found, but she's accused of killing six. Police say she told them all but one was born alive. Now her boyfriend in West Valley City is speaking out. He says he's stunned. And he's so beside himself he couldn't go on camera. Andrew Adams spoke with him. He shared one picture with us that he'd taken with Megan Huntsman. He wouldn't show his own face. "Total shock," he said, as his eyes welled up. His neighbor was equally stunned. "You would never in a million years think that something like this could happen," said Josh Flowers, a neighbor. Josh Flowers says he trusted Huntsman to even watch his three children. "She's been in my house, watching my kids, watching my nephew, numerous times, really nice, she made cookies for all the kids," Flowers said. "Ma'am, your response." "That's fine." That same woman who was making the cookies for her neighbor's kids, answered "that's fine: to her bail amount. $6-million: $1-million for each child prosecutors say she admitted to killing, shortly after they were born. "I read that and I was done, I couldn't do it anymore, I couldn't understand, couldn't believe, what I just saw," Flowers said. Nobody yet has said they were suspicious of Huntsman before the weekend's grim discovery. But state workers are still using the case as a reason for action. "No child has to die or be abused or neglected," says Liz Sollis. Liz Sollis at the Utah Department of Human Services says it's important for families and neighbors to come forward when they fear something isn't right. "It's not being nosey, you're trying to protect a child or a family," Sollis says. "You would never think it could happen in your own neighborhood and when it does, it's like whoa," Flowers says.
