The body has been sent to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office in St. Paul for an autopsy. It is being said that everything the male and female neighbors told police indicated the little baby girl was the daughter of LaFontaine-Greywind. She reportedly went to her neighbor's apartment to help sew, but then vanished.

Cops say Brooke Crews, 38, and William Hoehn, 32, were scheduled to appear in court Monday afternoon to be formally charged with conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit kidnapping and giving false information.

A cause of death has yet to be confirmed. If convicted, they could face up to life in prison without parole for the conspiracy to commit murder charge.

On Sunday evening, LaFontaine-Greywind was found by a group of kayakers on the Red River.

On Monday, both Hoehn and Crews were still in jail.

Prosecutors allege the suspects plotted to kill Ms LaFontaine-Greywind to take her baby and raise it as their own.

"We will continue to pursue justice for Savanna", Fargo Police Chief David Todd said in a press conference Monday.

Obviously, this is not the outcome anyone wanted, and there are still so many unanswered questions.

Police have so far declined to confirm speculation of fetal abduction, in which a pregnant woman is forced to give birth or a baby is forcibly removed from the mother's womb. She claims Greywind returned to the apartment later and gave her the newborn. Two recreational kayakers had come upon her body, which was wrapped in plastic and secured with duct tape. In that case, Hoehn was charged with pushing Crews into a bathtub during an argument in the same apartment where Greywind was last seen.

Greywind, her relatives and authorities and assorted volunteers had been searching for LaFontaine-Greywind since she disappeared on the afternoon of August 19 after being asked by an upstairs neighbor to help her with sewing a dress, her family and police have said. At the time, search crews were checking a farmstead in Clay County, Minnesota where they located suspicious items leading investigators to believe it may be a crime scene.

The baby was with Crews when she was arrested in the same apartment building where Greywind was living with her parents.

She was taken to a hospital and is now in the custody of Cass County Social Services, authorities said.

The parents told of Savannah not taking her purse, not answering her phone with her vehicle remaining in the driveway.
