Ok, This is not right
Baby cut from woman's womb
Pregnant woman was fatally stabbed multiple times in the chest
Her nearly full-term baby was cut from her womb, police say
23-year-old woman arrested after trying to pass baby off as her own
Report: Box cutter, bloody gloves, baby bottle, baby socks found in suspect's purse
KENNEWICK, Washington (AP) -- Kennewick, Washington, police report that a pregnant woman was fatally stabbed multiple times in the chest and her nearly full-term baby was cut from her womb. Police have arrested a 23-year-old woman.
The baby boy has been hospitalized at Deaconess Medical Center in Spokane, Washington, in critical condition.
Court documents say 27-year-old Araceli Camacho Gomez, of Pasco, Washington, had her hands and feet bound with yarn and suffered "massive trauma to her stomach area" late Friday night. An autopsy showed she died of the chest wounds, but had other wounds "consistent with the cutting of the body to remove an unborn child."
Her body was found early Saturday in Kennewick's Columbia Park.
A 23-year-old Kennewick woman, Phiengchai Sisouvanh Synhavong, has been arrested for investigation of first-degree murder and is accused of trying to pass the infant boy off as her own in calls made late Friday night to emergency dispatchers. She was being held without bail Monday, with another court appearance scheduled Wednesday.
Court documents say blue mechanic's gloves soaked in blood, a box cutter, bloody paper towels, yarn, a mucus bulb, baby bottle and baby socks were among some of the items found in Sisouvanh Synhavong's purse.
They didn't say whether the boxcutter was used to cut or stab Gomez and police refused to discuss details Monday.
Court documents allege that Sisouvanh Synhavong called 911 at 11:04 p.m. Friday saying she was by JCPenney, had just given birth and that she thought the baby had died.
The call ended, but the woman called again a few minutes later. Dispatchers were able to trace the calls, and she was found in a parking lot with the baby, holding what appeared to be an umbilical cord. A "significant amount of blood and pieces of human tissue" were found in the back seat, documents said.
The site was a mile or two from the spot where Gomez's body was later found, but it wasn't immediately clear whether Gomez was killed at the site where her body was found, or was killed elsewhere and the body dumped there.
Sisouvanh Synhavong and the baby were taken to Kennewick General Hospital, where medical tests showed she had not recently given birth.

Just shows you what a disgusting sick world we live in when people can be so heinous to do such a thing to a young mother and her child. This woman is one sick individual and needs to be put to sleep.

This happened about 12 years ago here in Addison IL.
Home/apartment invasion, killed mother and cut baby out. I think it was the boyfriend who impregnated her...
This is why knowing history is important as it does repeat.
