Did Korena Roberts Stash Heather Snively In The Crawl?
Korena Roberts, a 28-year-old Oregon woman, told neighbors that she was expecting a child. The thing is, she didn't tell them how she expected to get the child. Rescue crews arrived at Korena Roberts' home in response to a call of a newborn in distress. Upon their arrival, EMTs found Roberts' boyfriend unsuccessfully trying to revive a baby. According to the Sheriff's office, Roberts claimed that the baby was hers. Blood was found at the scene. The baby was pronounced dead at the hospital. Physicians also confirmed that Ms. Roberts had not recently delivered a child. (Roberts is pictured above in a photograph courtesy of the Washington County Sheriffs Department.)
After searching Robert's home, Deputies found the body of 21-year-old Heather Snively in the crawl space. Authorities believe that Snively was pregnant at the time she was attacked. Snively is believed to be the mother of the infant. An autopsy will attempt to determine how the baby was delivered, and whether he died before or after delivery. The timing of the baby's death may determine whether Roberts faces two charges of murder or just one. CNN affiliate KPTV has more information for those interested. In the meantime, keep in mind that Korena Roberts is to be considered innocent unless otherwise proven in a court of law.
