Shocking twist in missing mother and newborn baby case

Shocking twist in missing mother and newborn baby case

The baby has been placed in Child Protective Services custody, and the body is now with a medical examiner, the local news outlet reports.

Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department public information officer Lt. Daniel Arizpe earlier said that a 1-month-old baby was found safe at the home in Jersey Village just before 11 p.m., but the identity of that infant was not released by officials.

Police are asking people to share their tips with the Austin Police Department.

One person was arrested at the scene and faces two charges of kidnapping and one charge of tampering with a corpse, the Austin police said. According to KTRK, at least one person has been taken into custody.

Police believe the suspect may have had help murdering Broussard.

Austin police said a body was found at the home but have not confirmed whether it was Heidi Broussard, an Austin woman who has been missing for more than a week.

Investigators believe that Broussard and her child returned home to their apartment complex near West William Cannon Drive and South First Street after they left the school.

The baby's DNA is being tested to confirm whether she is Margot Carey, the infant missing since December 12.

Ms Broussard's fiance Shane Carey told reporters that he last spoke to his fiancee on the day of her disappearance, shortly after 8am.

"We miss all of them very much, and we want them home". The Austin Police Department said DNA testing is underway to determine whether the baby found at the home is Broussard's daughter, Margo Carey.

But as hours passed and he was still unable to reach Broussard by phone, Carey said he called all her friends, who also hadn't heard from her. The couple had been together for almost 10 years, Carey said. The agency later referred questions to Austin police.
