In a shocking new twist, the seven dead babies that Megan Huntsman gave birth to and then murdered in secret may not have been her husband’s. It has also been revealed that the murderous mom who hid the seven dead babies in her garage was kicked out of the house when her husband’s family found out she was having an affair.
Megan Huntsman’s 7 Babies Were Not Her Husbands
The horrifying surprises in this story continue to unveil themselves.
“[Darren] has told me he has no idea where the babies came from,” Darren’s neighbor, Aaron Hawker told the online outlet. “He has insisted that they were not his.”
His estranged wife, Megan Huntsman, has already admitted to suffocating and strangling six out of seven of the babies that were found. The seventh baby was apparently stillborn. Megan has allegedly told police that the seven babies were born between 1996 and 2006.
After discovering the first tiny body while cleaning the garage, Darren called police on Sunday, April 13, who later found the additional six bodies. At that time, Darren was adamant that he had no knowledge of the babies or their tragic deaths.
DNA tests will be conducted to confirm whether or not the babies belong to both Megan and Darren.
Megan & Darren’s Home Is Owned By His Parents
According to Darren, the house where Megan was living with their three children — Darien, 18, Jaycee, 17, and Sawyer, 11 — is owned by his parents, Stephen and Diane West.
After Darren was incarcerated in 2006 for drug charges, his parents allowed Megan and the girls to continue living in the home. Darren was released earlier this year.
It was originally reported that Megan had moved out of the house in 2011 due to her alcohol addiction, but new reports suggest that she was kicked out by Darren’s parents after they found out she was having an affair with a co-worker.
“We are mourning this tragic loss of life and we are trying to stay strong and help each other through this awful event,” a statement released by the West family read.
Megan is currently imprisoned with a $6 million bail.
