A pregnant woman is murdered, her baby cut from her body. Her family blames a Facebook post.

A Pregnant Woman Is Murdered, Her Baby Cut From Her Body. Her Family Blames A Facebook Post.

The last time anyone saw Marlen Ochoa-Lopez, she was nine months pregnant. The petite 19-year-old left her alternative high school on the lower west side of Chicago at around 3 p.m. on April 23, driving away in her black Honda Civic. Later that day, her family got a call saying that she hadn't shown up to pick her 3-year-old son from day care. She had sent a text message to her husband saying that she was too tired to drive anymore, then vanished. For nearly a month, as her due date came and went, her family desperately pleaded for her return, fearing that she had been kidnapped or worse. Her mother, Raquel Uriostegui, tearfully told reporters that Ochoa-Lopez's toddler was refusing to eat, and that they had had to take down all their family photos because he kept asking for her.

I cannot believe that she would just leave, pregnant, and abandon her other son. There's something wrong here, something bad." Any hopes that the teenager might still be alive were dashed on Wednesday, when officials confirmed that human remains discovered at a home on the southwest side of Chicago belonged to Ochoa-Lopez, and that her baby had been ripped from her womb. Ochoa-Lopez was also known by the name Marlen Ochoa-Uriostegui. She died of ligature strangulation, which typically involves the use of a cord or rope, the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office said, and her death was ruled a homicide. Anthony Guglielmi, the chief spokesman for the Chicago Police Department, told The Washington Post that her baby had been removed after she was killed. Ochoa-Lopez's body was found hours after several people at the house were taken into custody for...
