Baby Ripped Out of Chicago Mother’s Womb Passes Away

14 June 2019

"He passed away this Friday June 14, 2019 from his severe brain injury".

A two-month old baby who was cut from his mother's womb by a stranger who lured her to her death has died in hospital. She didn't know whether Yovani Lopez, Ochoa-Lopez's husband, was with his son at the time of death, though she noted he regularly spent the night at the hospital. The baby was cut from his mother's womb and his mother was killed.

Three people have been arrested and charged in the killing.

Baby Yovanny had been on life support since the incident; police initially said he was in "grave condition" and wasn't expected to survive. Around the time the photo was taken, the baby opened his eyes. Prosecutors say Clarisa Figueroa, 46, claimed she had given birth to the baby.

Due to that lack of oxygen, Yovanny continued to struggle, and was placed on life support.

Once Ochoa stopped showing signs of life, Clarisa Figueroa cut the baby from her womb and she and her daughter wrapped the teen's body in a blanket, put it in a plastic bag and dragged it outside to a garbage can, according to prosecutors.

A third person, Desiree's boyfriend Piotr Bobak, 40, has also been charged for his alleged involvement, and faces one felony count of concealment of a homicide. She then called 911 and said she'd just delivered a baby that wasn't breathing, Murphy said.

All three are set to be arraigned June 26, court documents show.

Asked about the family's motivation for slaying the teen and stealing her baby, Johnson replied: "Only they know that", reported ABC 7.

After hearing the testimony, Ortiz denied bond to the Figueroas, who are charged with murder, saying she felt "the presumption is great" that they committed a "heinous and brutal murder" and that they pose "a real and present" danger to the community. The teen returned on April 23 to accept Clarisa Figueroa's offer of free baby clothes, and as Desiree Figueroa was showing Ochoa a photo album of her late brother to distract her, Clarisa Figueroa allegedly sneaked up behind her and strangled her with a cord.

The youngster's true identity was confirmed by DNA test shortly after his mother's remains were found.

"Words really can not express how disgusting and thoroughly disturbing these allegations are", Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said last month.
