Taylor Morton Wiki – Taylor Morton Biography
Taylor was on her way to the hospital when she was pulled over and said she had just given birth and her baby wasn’t breathing. The trooper did CPR on the baby and called for an ambulance and when they got to the hospital, a doctor treated her and knew she hadn’t given birth.
Police in New Boston were called for a deceased pregnant female. Reagan allegedly had been beaten to death and stabbed and the baby was cut from the womb.
Police then went back to contact Taylor and she admitted to murdering and kidnapping the infant. She claims she only knew the deceased by her first name.
The woman was approximately seven-and-a-half months pregnant and the infant did not survive. A female suspect was taken into custody today in Oklahoma.
Multiple agencies are investigating including New Boston Police Department, Bowie County Sheriff’s Office, Texas Department of Public Safety and Texarkana, Texas, Police Department
The McCurtain Gazette-News reported that “the alleged suspect is believed to have kidnapped and fled with the newborn, who later died here,” in McCurtain County, Oklahoma. That suspect is described as a 27-year-old woman from Simms, Texas.
That suspect was speeding near DeKalb when she was stopped by a Texas trooper at 10 a.m. on Friday, the paper reported. She told him that she “had just given birth and her newborn baby, which was in the car, was not breathing.” The trooper tried to perform CPR but could not revive the baby and called for an ambulance. She was taken to McCurtain Memorial, where “a doctor… knew very quickly that she had not given birth.”
When reports came in at 1 p.m. that a woman was murdered and her baby taken, police returned to the hospital, arrested the suspect. In custody, she “reportedly confessed to the murder and kidnapping, telling officers she told her boyfriend that she was pregnant in February and they even had a gender reveal party,” the paper reported.
The suspect has two children, ages six and 10, and told law enforcement that she didn’t know Hancock well. “She reportedly told officers she only knew the deceased pregnant woman by her first name and thought they were the same age,” the paper reported.
The suspect will likely face federal charges in addition to local murder charges since she is accused of crossing state lines with the infant.
