Womb raider

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Crime Special -

She’s known as the vi­cious “womb raider”, who late last year pleaded guilty to mur­der­ing her preg­nant neigh­bour, Sa­vanna La­fontaineGrey­wind, so she could kid­nap her baby.

Brooke Crews, from North Dakota, USA, in­vited the 22-year-old into her home to show her a dress Sa­vanna was in­ter­ested in bor­row­ing.

Kayak­ers later found Sa­vanna’s body wrapped in plas­tic and dumped in a Min­nesota river.

When po­lice found the baby in Crews’ arms in the apart­ment she shared with part­ner Wil­liam Hoehn, the ma­nip­u­la­tive 38-year-old claimed Sa­vanna gave her the baby af­ter she had helped to in­duce her.

While her sen­tenc­ing is yet to oc­cur, Crews’ ex-hus­band, from Syd­ney’s Blue Moun­tains, has spo­ken out, claim­ing she was com­pletely ob­sessed with se­rial killers.

“She was al­ways read­ing books on se­rial killers and mur­ders, and could tell you any­thing about them,” he said.

Their re­la­tion­ship de­te­ri­o­rated af­ter he dis­cov­ered she had a se­cret past.

One former part­ner says she has seven chil­dren of her own.

Crews was ob­sessed with se­rial killers.
