Piotr Bobak Biography
Piotr Bobak, the boyfriend of Clarisa Figueroa, the woman accused of murdering a pregnant teenager in order to cut the baby out of her womb, had multiple Facebook pages, and one of them shared a photo of an “ultrasound” on Facebook late last year.
The Facebook page using the name “Peter Bobak” also shared a GoFundMe page that claimed Clarisa Figueroa had given birth; the baby, Chicago police now say, was actually the newborn child of 19-year-old Marlen Ochoa-Lopez, whose body was found in a trash can behind the home where Figueroa lived.

Figueroa and her daughter, Desiree Figueroa, now stand accused of murder. Authorities say Clarisa Figueroa lured Marlen Ochoa-Lopez to her Chicago-area house with a promise of a baby stroller before murdering the teen and cutting the baby from Marlen’s womb. Clarisa Figueroa then dialed 911, police say, and the baby remains in grave condition in the hospital.
Police now allege that Clarisa’s own adult daughter helped her strangle Ochoa-Lopez with a coaxial cable.
Clarisa Figueroa, along with daughter Desiree and boyfriend Piotr Bobak, continued the fraud for weeks after killing Ochoa-Lopez, prosecutors said, pretending the baby was Figueroa’s and asking for money on a crowdfunding site as the newborn boy was hospitalized in grave condition.
Calling the killing “brutal and heinous,” Judge Susana Ortiz ordered all three held without bond Friday after Cook County prosecutors laid out the grisly details before a crowded courtroom in the Leighton Criminal Court Building.

Piotr Bobak Is Accused of Concealing the Homicide & He Shared an Ultrasound Picture to His Page
Piotr Bobak is charged in connection with Ochoa-Lopez’s death, according to authorities. However, he’s charged with concealing the murder, not committing it.
Bobak, the boyfriend of Clarisa Figueroa, was accused of concealing a homicidal death. “He concealed the murder,” Chicago police commander Brendan Deenihan alleged in a news conference. On his Facebook profile, Bobak wrote: “My Baby hopefully twins Love Clarissa.” His page describes him as “self-employed” and says he lives in Bridgeport, Illinois.
Bobak’s Facebook page contains, as a cover photo, an ultrasound picture from 2018 in the name of Clarisa Figueroa. He posted it in October 2018, according to the page

Internet sleuths have unearthed gag pictures of ultrasounds; one looks extremely similar.
Piotr Bobak appears to have multiple Facebook pages; another page in the name Pete Bobak shared a December 2018 ultrasound in January 2019.
Chicago police commander Brendan Deenihan said detectives went to the hospital on May 7 and spoke to Figueroa. She denied meeting with Marlen at her house but admitted knowing her and “meeting her in the past,” he claimed. “We recovered DNA from the baby and from the actual father,” he added, saying that authorities then subpoenaed the hospital records. From there, the scheme unraveled and led to the tragic recovery of the teenager’s body, authorities say.
Authorities had learned that Clarisa Figueroa claimed “to have given birth to a child who was not breathing. Through DNA testing, we are now certain that the child was Ms. Ochoa’s,” said Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson. Marlen Ochoa-Lopez’s name has also been given as Marlen Ochoa and Marlen Ochoa-Uriostegui.
Police announced the charges on May 16, 2019. Marlen Ochoa-Lopez was found dead early Wednesday on May 15, 2019. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the baby is on life support and is brain dead.

According to The Chicago Tribune, Figueroa called 911 in a panic to report that the child was “pale and blue,” and the baby was taken to the hospital, where he remains.
Deenihan said in the press conference that authorities have evidence of Marlen’s car being in the area on April 23 and four hours later “our defendant Clarisa calls 911 with a newborn baby stating, ‘I just had a baby.’” He said that Marlen had already been murdered at this point.
In one now chilling posting, Clarisa Figueroa appears to have posted in a group for mothers on March 5, writing, “Who is due in May. Where is May mama’s at.”
