On the surface of a small box, tucked away in a Pleasant Grove garage filled with clutter, was a warning label masquerading as inventory.
It read: “Baby stuff – Megan’s.”
Inside, lay a dead infant, its tiny body wrapped in garbage bags and towels. The box was stored like an outdated appliance and left collecting dust for nearly a decade.
The search warrants, released late Friday, reveal that Megan Huntsman was questioned after her ex-husband, Darren West, reported finding a dead baby wrapped in plastic, concealed in a box inside the garage of their Pleasant Grove home.
The warrant, written by Pleasant Grove Police Corporal Dane Cannavo, said “Megan stated that Darren was the father and the child had been placed in the garage nearly 9 years previous.”
The warrant said six other children were found in boxes in the garage.
During questioning, Huntsman “admitted to at least 8 or 9 deceased infant children concealed in the residence,” Cannovo wrote.
“Megan has admitted to killing all the children, by strangulation, except one which was stillborn at birth. During the interview, Megan was unable to confirm exact locations for each of the above deceased children.”
Huntsman is facing six counts of murder in the infants’ deaths.
