The whole story began to unfold in 2014 when Megan’s husband, Darren West, found a newborn baby in the family’s trash can. The newborn had been killed and wrapped up in plastic bags before being tossed in the trash. Police investigators quickly closed in on the house, where they found the remains of 6 more infants. Huntsman had admitted to killing 6 of her 7 children, moments after giving birth to them in her home. The 7th child, she claims was a stillborn and she would not admit to killing it. All of the children were linked to her husband Darren West through forensic evidence and DNA testing.

The horrific tale spans more than 15 years, from a time when Megan Huntsman was a young adult. Since 1996 she had been concealing her pregnacies, and suffocating her babies immediately after giving birth to the children. She meticulously wrapped, packaged, and buried the bodies in the family’s yard without anyone finding out. It wasn’t until she changed her habits and tossed one in the trash, that she got caught. Although there were 7 bodies found, some would question whether those were really all the babies she killed over the past 19 years.

Megan Huntsman claimed that she would have been unable to care for her children, given that she suffered from several substance abuse addictions over the years. Huntsman claimed that in the past she was a hopeless meth addict, and that there would have been no way for her to take care of the children. She did kick that addiction, but later fell into the trap of other abuses.
