Marlen Ochoa-Lopez was days from her due date when the pregnant 19-year-old seemingly vanished. Tragically, Marlen's remains were found this week a home in the Scottsdale neighborhood. Now Chicago police are questioning four people in her brutal murder. According to police, Marlen's baby was forcibly removed from her body. She was strangled to death.
Marlen went to the home responding to a Facebook posting about free baby clothes. She was lured to the basement, and murdered before having her baby cut out of her.
Police say the same day Marlen was reported missing, a call to 911 for help for a baby came from the same address where Ocha-Lopez's body was later found. The baby remains in critical condition.
I can't imagine the pain this family is going through... My thoughts are with them.
