The Doctors investigate horrifying incidents of pregnant women reportedly being killed for their babies. According to experts say there have been 14 cases of this crime in the United States in the last decade.
In a recent case in Fargo, North Dakota a pregnant woman reportedly went missing and her body was found a week later in a river. The dead woman's baby was reportedly found with the upstairs neighbor, who allegedly asked the pregnant woman to help her sew a dress and reportedly went missing after. The neighbor and her husband have been charged with kidnapping, but authorities have not charged her with the murder of the pregnant woman.
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork asks the important question, "What would ever make someone do this?"
Clinical psychologist Dr. Judy Ho explains that someone able to commit a crime like this might suffer from serious mental health issues and could have anti-social personality traits. She says these types of people often do not value human life, lack remorse and cannot be reasoned with.
Dr. Judy warns that people capable of these types of crimes might prey on our desire to hear nice things about ourselves and at first seem charming. One red flag could be someone attaching themselves to your life too quickly after having just met you.
The Doctors note that while this crime is rare, it still important to be aware of.
