Woman Guilty of Double Murder for Killing Mom & Carving Out Baby

Fake Pregnancy, Murder, and Fetus Theft

Annette Morales-Rodriguez, a 34-year-old woman from Milwaukee, has been convicted of two counts of first-degree intentional homicide after she killed a woman and carved out her full-term fetus in an attempt to steal the baby in October 2011.

Yeah, this is a gruesome one.

Morales-Rodriguez had faked a pregnancy. In fact, she had faked two pregnancies before this one. She was desperate to give her boyfriend a son, but couldn’t get pregnant. She told her boyfriend that each of the first two fake pregnancies ended in a miscarriage.

For her third fake pregnancy she had a new idea. She would steal a fetus from an actually pregnant woman. Genius at work here, folks.

Morales-Rodriguez went to a Hispanic community center and found her victim, 23-year-old Maritza Ramirez-Cruz. Ramirez-Cruz was already a mother of three who was in her 40th week of pregnancy.

Morales-Rodriguez took Ramirez-Cruz to her home where she bashed her head in with a baseball bat before choking her until she passed out. Then she put duct tape over her victim’s eyes and nose and put a plastic bag over her head. Then she used an X-Acto knife to cut her victim hip to hip and took out the stillborn baby boy.

Morales-Rodriguez then called the police saying that she gave birth to a boy who wasn’t breathing. The ensuing investigation proved the baby was not Morales-Rodriguez and that she had not even given birth. Police later found Ramirez-Cruz’ body at her house.

Ramirez-Cruz died of blood loss and asphyxiation and her full-term fetus died as a result of her death.

The penalty for the crime is mandatory life sentence.

I hate you, humanity.
