A mother and baby have died after her womb was cut open on Friday morning at a residence in New Boston. Bowie County officials reported the incident.
Reagan Hancock, 22, who was seven and half months pregnant, was found by her mother in her home in New Boston, Texas. Hancock's - who already had a daughter - womb was cut open allegedly by a friend then took her to a hospital across state lines.
At about 10:20 am on Friday, New Boston Police responded to a 911 call about a deceased person in the 200 block of Austin Street, according to Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Gregg Williams in a news release issued late Friday. Upon arrival, Hancock's body was found inside her house. The initial investigation said that her womb was cut open, and the unborn child had been removed from her body.
Nearly 50 miles away, a female suspect was arrested in Idabel, Oklahoma, after allegedly taking the baby to a hospital. The baby has since died.
The police have not yet named the woman, but Hancock's family has claimed on social media that she was a friend. The police officials are yet to say the motive behind the woman's crime. The woman has been charged with kidnapping and murdering an unborn child.
A PayPal fund that was set up for the mother and baby's gruesome deaths states that the mother and baby were selfishly killed when her womb was cut open by someone that the deceased mother had considered a friend.
The post also revealed that the young mom had been expecting a second child with her husband Homer, whom she married in 2019, and with whom she shared a three-year-old daughter.
Social media posts also showed that Hancock was expecting another little girl, who she planned to name Braxlynn Sage on November 10. But due to what happened, the mother and baby won't be able to be with their loving family anymore.
