Local story for me. In 1990, baby is found in a box in a field. Detectives have finally identified the mother and father.. Father didn't even know the mother was pregnant (according to him) and this would have been their middle child.

DNA familial matching (GEDMatch, most likely) led to the father


Sorry, this is one of those topics that could be in Current Events, Genealogy or True Crime.. Since it's somewhat ongoing.. Figured this was the better spot for it.

Only SLIGHT bit of defense I'll give to the mother.. Well, not sure i'm defending anything, but this is the reason that we have 'safe drop off' laws.. Where newborns can be dropped off at a hospital or fire station, no questions asked.

I can see a hiding a pregnancy under baggy sweatshirts etc, but how do you live with a woman as your wife and never realize at any point that she's pregnant???? Did he never hug her or see her naked for 9 months?

I agree, though plenty of women claim they didn't know they were pregnant until they were in labor and told at the hospital, so I guess in rare cases it's possible. Perhaps a more overweight woman won't show if she's carrying a certain way, maybe she has no symptoms, has PCOS which could explain skipped periods, etc.

Yeah, let's get our DNA checked, everybody! It'll be fun, they said. Nothing possibly could go wrong with this, huh?

So identifying the parents of this little girl who was killed is a bad thing in your book?

This woman just keeps getting more and more evil.. Or her level of evil keeps getting discovered to be deeper and deeper.


Apparently Julie Valentine was the SECOND child she dumped in a field to die.

Her husband's powers of observation are critically poor.

Perhaps she was very overweight? I have a friend who has had 3 babies and her appearance didn't change in any way due to her weight. I think that's more likely than her just not gaining much weight. I am an average sized person and didn't gain any weight during my last pregnancy. I had a very obvious baby belly from early on even so (losing the belly post-delivery and breastfeeding had me down about 20 pounds from the start of pregnancy).

It gets even worse. She is linked to doing it to another child in 1989, in upstate NY:

It's hard for me to believe her "husband" didn't know about 2 pregnacies...
